How many is too many?

Teacher: “If I gave you two cats and another two cats and then another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Seven!”

Teacher: “No no, listen carefully… If I gave you two cats, and another two cats and another two, how many would you have?”


Johnny: “Seven.”

Gets frustrated
The teacher rubs her temples, and takes a deep breath.

Teacher: “Come on Johnny, you’re better than this. Let me put it to you differently. If I gave you two apples, and another two apples and another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Six.”


Teacher: “Good. Now, if I gave you two cats, and another two cats and then another two, how many would you have?”

Johnny: “Seven!”

Teacher: “Johnny, where in the heck do you get seven from?!?”

Johnny: “Because I’ve already got a freaking cat!

Erm, would he still have seven if he was only holding the 6 cats teachers had given him?

Or does he count the "virtual" cat actually at home?

And if he put them in a box would he have any or more, as it could be a Schrodinger's Cat situation?
