Can someone translate this city ordinance wording for me?

    No, er, my "friend" and her hypothetical...er, my hypothetical, well, whatever...those six indoor cats, don't want to set off any red flags. They've been living happily...hypothetically, of course...for several years so it's probably just best to let things go on as normal. :)

    Just a few months ago there would've only been five hypothetical cats. Then I hypothetically adopted another one on Halloween. :D

    Okay, so here's my take on it right now:

    My hypothetical six cats and I are going to go on as before, not knowing about and not caring about some oddly worded city ordinances that may, or may not, limit the number of indoor cats to three. I'd like to see anyone come here and PROVE there are six cats! The two hypothetical ferals hide so well sometimes even I don't see them for a day or two. My mom's aide had worked here for probably six months before she FINALLY saw one of the two feral cats; I kept telling her they really exist, they're not a figment of my imagination, but she didn't believe me until she saw one for herself! :laugh:

    haha! Reminds me of that movie Ace Ventura pet detective..when the doorbell rang all of his many many pets were trained to hide!!

    mine used to do that when I lived in an apartment!

    i used to have 4 in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment 2 of them were mine already the other 2 were stray's that I saved. one was living in a car engine with her mother and 4 other kittens in the carport of the apartment complex!They received medical treatment and I fostered them until they were placed into good homes with the help of a local rescue league but kept one:) the other was just a tiny kitten living in the woods I repeatedly tried to find her mother but I think maybe something happened to her..but at least I saved the kitten....they have all passed away now...all happy loved and at a ripe old age:)
    one of them who was the sweetest thing you would ever meet I adopted when she was around 14 years old and was going to be put down because the owner had allergies and couldn't find anyone to take her..or so I was told....mmmhmmm..unbelievable right?? lived to be 26!!!:)

    and now I just have my two boy's!! but still volunteer at the shelter..
    I say just keep doing what you do and scr!w whoever doesn't like it!

    Yep, might as well seek them out before they find you. You know that as soon as you posted that you had too many cats, showing a location of Los Angeles, some secret FBI computer picked it up, parsed it and forwarded it to the LAPD Feline Investigations Unit.

    It's only a matter of time before you get that insistent knock on your door, with a pair of laconic, poker-faced detectives wanting to ask a lot of questions about your kitties. Just a matter of time... ;)

    Thanks, my friend, for a good laugh before I head off to take my nightly crap-load of meds and try to get some sleep. :D

    But, wait! I never SAID I have too many cats. I said my six cats were hypothetical. ;)

    Oh, you said enough! Now all they have to do is interrogate you until you slip up once... Even hardened criminals break under the pressure of the Cat Squad! :eek: :laugh:

    OMFG no. :eek: I MISSED the 'weirdness' of California when I lived in other states--including Texas. I had a beautiful house in Carrollton (a North Dallas suburb), that I loved, but that was about the ONLY thing I loved there. In '92, our front yard was the only one for miles around with a Clinton/Gore sign in it. I actually had nasty notes left on my windshield because of things my bumper stickers said. (Like being pro-Democrat, pro-animal rights, stuff like that.) Now that I'm back home where I belong, I'll NEVER leave again.

    I don't know if CA is so weird in this respect (though it is beyond weird in so many others). Lots of municipalities that I'm aware of have laws governing how many animals you can keep in your house.

    Those laws exist elsewhere, too. I know firsthand, because when we lived in another North Dallas suburb, Farmers Branch, we found out the hard way. We had actually contacted the city PRIOR to moving there, specifically asking about ordinances limiting the number of pets, and they said there were none. Great. So we moved there, and then [long story I'll skip] had a visit from Animal Control. Turns out there was a limit of three pets. Well, we had five Great Danes, plus numerous cats. We got to know the chief Animal Control officer, who turned out to be a real sweetie, and he pointed out that since all the dogs were black, and most people couldn't tell them apart, just to never let more than three of them out at a time and we'd be fine. :laugh: When we bought our house in Carrollton we didn't even bother finding out about any pet ordinances. At that time, all our dogs had died off, so we only had [indoor] cats and a parrot. By the time we got dogs again, we didn't even think about it, and never had any issues.

    So now I'm back home in California, living in the house my family has owned for over 40 years...which I now own (weird)...and my hypothetical cats and I aren't going to worry about it!

    Ferrets are not allowed at all in CA.
