What Life Is Like When You Have More Than Three Pets

(Image Link)

At one point my family had fourteen pets living in our home, and if my little sister had gotten her way that number would have continued to go up on a daily basis.

We had two parrots, two finches, a turtle, four cats, two dogs, a rat and two cockatiels, and even though I was only 11-13 years old I often had to take care of them all, which was a crash course in pet responsibility.

It was also surprising to see how well all these pets would get along with each other, and despite the pet madness (and all the poop) my younger self didn't mind being surrounded by critters.

Then again, it probably would have been quite different if we'd had a dozen cats living in our home, and our house would have smelled even worse...

Just a few years ago, my family had four cats, four birds, a dog, a horse, several hermit crabs, and a tank full of fish. We also had six people taking care of all those; I can't imagine doing it by myself!
