My mother in law says she's disgusted

We live in a beautiful home in a gated subdivision. I keep my house very clean, but my mother in law said this crossed the line.

We have a lab in the backyard, my son has 2 aquariums in his playroom. One with tropical fish and one with a box turtle. We just got my son an adorable kitten. She said that is way too many pets and it's now disgusting.

do you think I have too many pets? I don't want to get rid of any of my pets, but I don't want to appear disgusting.

Why is the lab in the backyard? If its out 24/7 I think that's pretty disgusting. If not then no two pets and some fish is not disgusting to me.

It's only disgusting if your house is dirty and smells horrible from the animals. Otherwise, who cares how many pets you have!

Not at all. I have a fresh water tank, a dog, and in 7 weeks we will have a kitten. Having animals does not make a house nasty.

Does it reek like animal urine and feces? Is there hair balls flying everywhere?  If not, then, no it's not disgusting.

I know people with way more pets. Thats pretty much what we eventually plan on having (minus the turtle). As long as you clean up after them I don't see how in any way its disgusting.

 It is too many pets *to me* but if you clean after them then tough shit on how she feels.

No. I don't consider fish pets. I think they're more like decorations that you have to feed.

It's disgusting your dog doesn't get to have a real family.

It's not like the fish and turtle are making messes on the carpet.

Some people just don't like pets, but I think you have a nice amount. It doesn't seem like too much.
