    I think all breeders should be registered breeders.

    Yeah I have a cat. Just the one.

    She's an indoor cat, and is a spoilt little brat.

    She's not desexed, yet, but she's not yet 6 months... and the vet doesn't do it until she is. She's microchipped and vaccinated and everything though... I think I'm a responsible pet owner, and would be even if I had 3 cats (I'd just be a poorer responsible pet owner... ).

    I think in a lot of areas council permits only 2 cats... and you need permits for more.

    We have one cat that we adopted from the RSPCA, so she's vaxxed, microchipped, desexed, wormed etc...

    I think so long as you are a responsible cat owner, and do the above things then I don't necessarily think that having a certain amount of cats makes you irresponsible. HOWEVER there is a large feral/stray cat problem in Australia and I do believe that some measures need to be taken to try and stop this problem.

    I for one agree with having a limit to how many cats one can own. I mean come on, you need a kennel licence to have more than 2 dogs on a property, and while I understand that dogs cause more noise issues etc I think it is far and appropriate to have a licence to have more than 2 cats on a property.

    I mean unless every cat/kitten ever sold is subject to desexing (other than those for breeding purpose by registered breeders of course) then the problem is simply not going to get any better.

    We have 3 indoor only cats, we went to apply for the permit when we got the third but as we have to get permission from all bordering houses (given the way some blocks are split and one having units we would have to get 17 signatures!!!) we didnt apply.
    Given also they are all desexed, m/c, fully indoors and I cannot see this effecting our neighbours what so ever I feel okay with not applying. I also found it a little funny we could dogs & 2 cats without a permit, but not 3 cats.

    As pp have said, I think the problem here is not how many cats / pets you have but how repsonsible the owners are.

    All that said our 3rd cat is just terrified of dd, she spends her days hidden except for when dd is sleeping, so we are currently looking for a new home for her as she will have a much better life not having to hide for most of it
