Nope, I've got three other people in the house, plus two dogs :)

Crowded house.  Four people, four cats, two dogs!

Three horses and four chickens, too ;)  I lived in Boston for a stint, but I grew up in the Berkshires, which is where I live now--it's beautiful here, and I love the peace and quiet.

I live in a one bedroom apartment, so one cat is good enough for me.

Not a cat, but very cute anyway.  This is Joe, and as you can see, my sister has decorated his stall for Christmas :)

I have ridden him before, but I'm not a very good rider.  My sister has ridden him in shows and won championships, though.

Congrats to your sister, Amanda.

As for me, I'm still trying to keep Tatiana away from the Christmas tree.  It seems every time I turn around, she's there, chewing on it.  She has her own chew toys, why is she always after the tree!

Today, Tatiana finally did it.  She knocked over my Christmas tree.  No damage though.

Tatiana, my current cat, is three years old as of today.  According to her adoption records, she was born on December 21, 2010.

Here is a video of the Ottawa Humane Society (which I am a proud supporter of), where I adopted Tatiana from:

We had a terrible scare with my sister's very dearly loved cat Steve (funny name for a cat, I know).   He was rushed to the animal emergency room Saturday night, and they basically told us he would have to be put to sleep--he had a blocked urinary tract, and they suspected he had a kidney stone, which would have meant thousands of dollars worth of risky surgery, or he could have had crystals in his urine, which is a re-occuring condition that can be fatal; either way, it wasn't looking good.  However, his urinalysis came back perfectly normal, and it now looks like he has a rare stress condition that caused a muscle spasm and prevented him from urinating.  He has to eat prescription cat food for the rest of his life, and he may have to take an anti-anxiety medication, but he's going to be okay.  It is almost a miracle.  At any rate, he is home safe and sound, and here he is resting comfortable in the drawer of his mama's bed:

Scary stuff, glad he's OK. A friend of my wife's cat had to be put down not long ago for a urinary condition like the one you mentioned. Sad.

Here's one of Teddy from a couple of months ago. He's just under a year and four months at this point...

Once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right...

Thanks, edubs; I'm glad he's okay too. 

Teddy is absolutely beautiful!
