When I joined Takoma Village I was not living in DC. So for the first year I 
was an email member. I kept seeing emails about cats and dogs—just got a new 
one, this one died but I got two this time, another foster cat. And then 
someone started planning for the litter boxes in the CH. "Won’t it be fun when 
all our cats can play together!!!”

I asked how many cats there were. There was no more talk of cats in the CH. 
Partly because someone mentioned allergies but also they had not counted up 
their 12-15 cats. One person had 5 neurotic foster cats. Litter boxes for 15 
cats is not small feat.
