No, they decided 2 cats in one-bedroom unit is enough. Apparently they seem to think 27 is too many.

Seriously. How are these people able to stockpile more than three cats in an apartment?

So the question is, how many can someone have without it being a health and odor problem?

Some people can't even manage 2 since they never scoop. Others could get away with a handful more and without the smell and health issue. I think that a sniff test is better than a number.

I just recently had to give up my two cats when I moved. When I was hospitalized a few months back, my sister-in-law took over my chore of taking care of the litter. She didn't scoop it ever (I scooped daily, you have to with four cats in the house, at a minimum.), only changed it once a week. The house reeked,and naturally the cats were finding new places to relieve themselves. We didn't want the new house to become a giant litterbox, so my boys went to the shelter. It was heartbreaking. Her cats looked at me like I was a monster when I returned with their brothers missing.

She got to keep her cats, provided they stayed in her room and she kept up with the litter. She didn't, and management could smell them. Her husband made the call and I took her cats to the shelter. I wanted her to go with me, so she could understand how I felt having to walk away from my boys while they were looking so scared and confused. She didn't have the nerve, so again I looked like the villain to the cats.

/I really hope whoever adopts my boys finds them loving and loyal kitties, and treats them well.

Anyone read that as "condor board" ?

I'm fascinated by Marina City. To the point of reading their message boards and apartment reviews. Apparently sound carries really well to the point of being able to hear your neighbor's normal toned conversations if you're both standing in the right part of your apartment. Also they have a real problem with douchebags setting fireworks off on their balconies for any and all occasions.

26 is fine, but 27 is over the limit.

Goddamn it I know why people do it but why do people do it?! These are living creatures ffs; it's not like you're collecting dolls or baseball cards.

Oh my god, this.

Here's a CSB. I'll keep it short:

My father-in-law is a funeral director. At times past, he was required to do retrievals. One particularly nasty retrevial involved a nice old lady with about 20 cats.

Died in her sleep, lived alone. Wasn't discovered until a week later when the smell became "pungent" to her neighbors.

There were chunks missing. Big chunks. Dead kitties too... chunks out of them as well. Hungry cats can be real bastards.

/enjoy your nightmares tonight.
//yay for cats!

Easy way around that new condo rule... These 27 cats? They're not pets, I'm just fattening them up a bit before I put 'em into a stir fry!

I'd have taken HER to the shelter and called it a day.

I live in this building...place should be called Marina Kitty since so many people have cats. We have three in our one-bed, thankfully grandfathered in. All in all, it's a decent place to live...relatively inexpensive, mostly quite peaceful (schubie, you'd find that most units don't have a problem with sound carrying, given the amount of concrete involved in the walls and floors - some people have just had bad luck, I think, and you shouldn't believe everything you read on Marina Watchdog), and right across the river from the Loop. And the balconies are absolutely huge.

Really the stupid part of this is that it's no problem at all, especially in a condominium building where individual owners are responsible for any damage to carpet or anything, to have two cats in a studio, and we haven't had any overcrowding or inability to keep the litter boxes clean with our three cats. Cats actually cause less trouble if you have at least two, as a number of people at the association meeting where this rule was approved objected. At least they're finally lightening up on psychiatric dogs, though...we're the last high-rise in the neighborhood to not allow EVERYONE to have at least one small, well-behaved dog.

To be fair, 27 cats in 750 square feet was crazy. For nearly anyone that'd be nuts in 7,500 square feet.

It is believed the 27 cats no longer reside at Marina City. Effort to reach the owner of the condo unit was not successful.

Efforts to reach the cats didn't get too far either.
