600 cats

When we took in Rose, I was having some trouble accepting the number four.

Four cats feels like a lot of cats. Then I read about the Caboodle Ranch in Florida, a feline sanctuary. The owner states on his blog that he currently has 600 cats onsite. That is a lot of cats!

I guess I will need to check into the city ordinances to see if there is a limit on the number of household cats allowed on a property in city limits!

I am all for saving cats, but I wonder if there is a limit. Does it really make sense to pour so many resources into saving animals lives when so many humans live without their basic needs being met? I wrestle with this question each time I buy a luxury item for my cats. Is spending the money on their thousandth mouse toy really a wise use of resources? It's hard to feel great about such spending when I hear stories of people who don't have enough money for basics and so must choose to go without food for days at a time so they can purchase their medications.

There are no easy answers.
