@Francita
There is a limit of 3 dogs over the age of six months per household in the city limits. There is no mention of cats, as this was all checked and verified when mine were adopted from the SPCA, and we do not live in the city limits and our animals are strictly inside animals. So technically anyone with more than 3 dogs would be violating the current "limit" however as told to me by the SPCA staff that limit is put in place to prevent abuse or neglect of animals, which I can assure you none of mine are at risk of

One pet is enough for me.  I'd love to have more, but one is what I can afford.

Some people like lots of pets.

If you tell people not to visit your house because the animals have taken over all couches, seats, etc.that's when you have too many.

I think four.  My personal limit is two.  If you can keep four in excellent health and in your home that is great for you.  More than four then when something bad happens ( loss of life, loss of income)  it is to difficult to re-home them and rescues normally can not take in many at one time.  JMHO

Asking this group for their opinion is crazy enough, but asking for their opinion about animals is like holding a steel pole up in a lightning storm.  I'm very happy to see everyone has remained congenial and friendly!  Congrats to everyone!

@Retired Engineer-
I am to! I was sure someone would have something negative to say, and if they still do that's ok, I love each one of our pets. I wasnt asking to justify to myself we do or we don't, I know the number we have now is good for us and they are all very well taken care of, I was just more wondering everyones personal opinions, as me and my husband go back and forth on this all the time lol

Ray, that's awesome. I have a friend that has a dachshund, she calls her Weinee, cracks me up.

Weiner's breath is nasty, she breaks up peppermints and gives her a little bit, Weinee loves them.

It's cool you have an aviary for your birds, you should post a pic.

All the dogs stay outside. The only animals that come in the house are the stupid cats.

I love all my animals with the exception of the cats. We sorta tolerate each other.

I do not like cats.
If we ever get a dog one would be the max.

There is a limit for Kingwood.  I can't remember if it is 3 or 4 pets per home.

They do this because it is rare in Kingwood that anyone has a yard big enough for more than this.    All our yards are tiny here.  

If I had a farm on a few thousand acres, I'd have 2 GP, 2 Black labs, one Maine Coon Cat, a couple horses, a dozen cows, and a chicken coop full of chickens.  And a lot of other critters   But we bought in a subdivision, and it is what it is.

@FoFa, 100% agree with you on the Great Pyreness.  One of the best guard dogs around.  One of my friends has 2, both rescued from the GP Rescue.  And no one is going to go into their house, uninvited.  Sweet, kind, loving dogs, but you would never know this from their barks.   If you lived in the countryside, no better guard anything than a flock of guinea's.  Nothing human can sneak up on them.  Not one thing.  lol
