I would like to be more specific about how many cats I have.

Knowing, of course, that nobody ever really owns a cat, the components of my equation go like this:

Lawrence: One cat, male, four legs, ours.
Dennis: One cat, female, three legs, ours.
Longshanks: One cat, belongs to them next-door, but spends 90% of his time with us, male, four legs.

So technically I own one and three quarters of cats, based on the number of legs. But Nextdoors' cat is here SO DAMN OFTEN that I might as well count him, and we have even given him a name (Longshanks) which is not the one his parents gave him.

So we have three cats, with 11 legs between them, but only 50% ownership of one of them.

Can someone provide a mathematical equation to show this, and to give me an idea of the correct number of cats we have.

Can I just say 2 and a quarter cats (i.e., 1.75 + 0.5 of other cat)
Or should I be more precise?

Thanking you in advance.

Well, a cat must have three different names, so in principal I am uncertain.

Mate, I can't even get my act together to do my own blog for more than about two days before I get bored.

Let alone for those three idle bastard cats.

Besides, Dennis only has one paw, she can't type fast enough to blog.

Oh man, I just took him in till he could get his shit sorted. Felt sorry for him, y'know? Next thing you know, he's invited all his buddies round, they eat me out of house and home, wreck the furniture and sit in MY chair! And none of those no-good bums has got a job Rolling Eyes

How do they achieve this? One of our neighbours has just started letting out their young cat and it likes our garden, but it gets battered by my two* every time it comes over the fence. Yet it still comes back three times a day and there's not even food in the garden.

*battered by a toothless 15 year old grumpy tomcat. The gigantic, 2 year old female rag doll (females are meant to be teratorial?) just cowers at it and hides.

I 'think' I have no cats, there's one I found out is called Lazy lives three doors up but likes to sleep on my bike seat and yes I have taken the car rather than move the cat and there's a ginger one sleeps on the cushions on my decking most mornings.

One cat with a slower metabolism than a giant redwood, another faster than a velociraptor on speed.

Gracie isn't at all tolerant of cats. If she sees one, she loses her shit big time.

One of ours disappeared for a week, he'd put on weight when he came back.

One of the local cats went missing for 10 months, the owner put up posters and he was spotted, 6 miles away, so off she pops and finds him, she drags him home and keeps him in for a month, he went back,
so she drags him back again and keeps him in, and fits a tracker, turns out he had a 2nd home and that one refused to stop feeding him,
" he wouldnt come back if he wasnt hungry" was her reasoning,

turns out she had history of feeding random cats.

Similarly, Bruno did not allow us to have cats. I had two when he arrived, but he menaced them so much that I suspect one died of fright/fear/starvation (from not being able to come near the house without Bruno going nutso), and the other lived under my bed from the day he arrived, and ended up going back to the lady that gave them to me.

When I was a kid we had a psycho German shepherd that protected me a kid, loved a few family members and friends, and wanted to kill the rest of humanity.

Our cat kicked it's arse. Laughing
