7. Officially, there should be one more than the amount of cats.

That being said, I have two boxes for four cats, and that seems to work with their personalities - two are sisters and tend to share everything with no problems.
The very elderly (we think she's near 18) Princess had a bout of pooping on the counters until we put a box next to the edge of the counter on a side table. I think it might have been due to a stroke or something else that caused her to decide she only wanted to live in a small, warm, confined 4x1.5 counter location where she could see everyone, keep the other cats from coming near her - and more importantly, be near food and water. She did this for two months; as soon as she stopped living exclusively on the counter, we started migrating the litter box back down to the floor, and she began sharing space with the other cats again.
So, pooping on the counters may be situational (Litter box revolution) or there may be something physically wrong.
