So I am my own organization, number of employees...9. Me and my felines who think they're monkeys.
If I know cats, the cats would be The Organization and you would be ... the butler.
I think butler is overstating it somewhat! Cats just have slaves.
As for 8 cats, though, one would be more than enough for me.... and Buddy, my multi-breed bowdler [meaning dog in starkers-speak]. He's never seen a cat and I don't know how he'd react, being the alpha male 'n all.
These days, one small dog is all I need as a pet/companion.
I'm just not a cat lover, though I did keep one for many years after my partner at the time [who originally brought him home] left him behind with me when we separated. Yup, old Frog, as we called him, was a partner in crime with my Rottweiler, Nelson. They were the best of friends, who ate, played and often slept together.
