    Default Indoor only cats, how many?

    Do you have 1 or more indoor cats? Are you happy with what you have?
    We have 1 Russian blue, strictly indoor (he is allowed out on a lead). We're considering a second cat...but I am so unsure about having two indoor animals!
    (We'll need two litter trays, two lots of food bowls, need to look out for two when we go out /go outside). Also my Russian sits on me when I'm on the couch, nicely on my chest.

    We have 2 indoor cats. They're brother and sister, just moggy's. We have 2 litter trays, 2 food bowls but they share. They've never known life without each other - only night they've ever spent apart was when girl cat was being desexed. They fight at times, but they're pretty good. They play together and both snuggle up to me. Very different personalities.

    We have always had 2 indoor cats. They love to chase each other and play fight which gives them some exercise.
    There not really that much extra work to have the 2 over just 1. I often have 2 cats on my chest when I am laying on the couch

    We have 2 indoor cats as well The first we 'adopted' (read: inherited) when we moved into our house. She was a dairy cat and pretty much stayed outside most of the time, but started coming in periodically each evening so became 'ours.'

    The second was an abandoned dairy kitten who I found dehydrated and sick, and immediately fell in love with him. I bought him home and the original cat was NOT impressed! I had to build a system of tunnels out of shoe boxes so he had somewhere to run and hide to escape her!

    Anyway, they learned to love each other. And by 'love' I mean they do play together and sit by each other to keep warm in Winter, but the older one still tries to give the little one a nip from time to time! Reminding him who's boss I guess.

    We have 2 litter boxes, and 2 food and water bowls, and they share all of them. They seem to have found their own special spots to sleep around the house and they are great company for each other when we go out for the day.

    We have two strictly indoor cats, brother and sister. And we actually only have one litter tray (*gasp!* controversial!). I know you're supposed to have 2 but it works for us They mostly sleep or potter during the day. They go stupid at night!

    My two are. They got out once, freaked out and didn't leave the porch. I was insistent on inside cats, my favorite cat as a kid was hit by a car and we live right near a main road. Not risking it.

    We moved house a year and a half ago, and they are both inside 100% of the time now. The one which used to go out has adjusted surprisingly well.

    Ah, the night time freight train up the hallway. Yes, I'm familiar with that
