I wouldn't really set a number to it. As long as the animals are happy, healthy and well fed, I think it is fine to have a lot. If the person cannot take care of themselves because of the animals--I think it is a problem. Or if the animals are not taken care of or overcrowded in an area--it is a problem. I have 8 cats and a dog in a large three bedroom two story apartment with a basement....some people think that is a lot--but my cats and the dog all have their own places to go to get away from each other if they want....they are well fed and my place is usually cleaner than most peoples houses who have kids. I also have three aquariums that I keep up. I love and care for my animals. They don't want for anything==they get all the attention and care they need and I think that is the main thing to consider.

a hoarder is someone who has taken on more than they can handle, and neglecting other everyday responsibilities
