"I have a dog and cat" Means that you have a thing called "dog and cat". It must be a freak of nature. Rather you must have a dog and a cat, two separate and individual pets. If you have a dog and two cats then you must say "I have a dog and two cats" . You must follow the same logic and enumerate whether you have a cat or a thousand cats.
