Signs That You Are A Crazy Cat Lady

Your colleagues no longer ask how your weekend was. Instead they ask how your cats are doing.

People at work have stopped offering you their lint brushes. They realize it's hopeless anyway.

When you get your latest roll of film developed, there's not a single human being in the pictures.

You have more cats than the local pet store and there are several kitty litter boxes in every room of your apartment.

Your personal motto is: "You can never have enough cats."

You buy more than 60 pounds of cat litter a month.

You'd rather watch hours of boring infomercials than disturb the cat sleeping on the remote.

You choose your friends based on how well your cats like them.

The only time you leave your apartment is to feed the stray cats in the neighborhood.

You introduce your cats by name to the pizza delivery guy.


I am not Crazy.
I am a perfectly sane Cat Lady; just ask anyone (anyone else with cats, that is).

Your colleagues no longer ask how your weekend was. Instead they ask how your cats are doing.

Well, why not for heavens sake! They expect me to ask about their kids! ;-)

People at work have stopped offering you their lint brushes. They realize it's hopeless anyway.

No one has ever offered me a lint brush but I have had friends pick hairs off my shoulders. The funniest was one time at a former job when a (British) friend and co-worker reached out to pull a long stray hair off my shoulder, looked at it, and exclaimed "Oh! It's Moggie hair!".

When you get your latest roll of film developed, there's not a single human being in the pictures.

We do digital but it's the same (of course). Besides, with digital, it's really easy to snap a few shots of humans or flowers if the need ever arises. :-)

You have more cats than the local pet store and there are several kitty litter boxes in every room of your apartment.

Just one Really Large litter box.

Your personal motto is: "You can never have enough cats."

Hubby's personal motto is "4 is Enough".

You buy more than 60 pounds of cat litter a month.

We buy it in larger quantities, less often.

You'd rather watch hours of boring infomercials than disturb the cat sleeping on the remote.

We don't watch TV, but it can be difficult when reading and suddenly one feels a need to.... erm, "visit the smallest room in the house". However, this is the value of having a spouse. "Could you take the cat for a few minutes?" is a common question in our house.

You choose your friends based on how well your cats like them.

Of course! But don't "other people" do the same with dogs? Maybe not.

Our closest friend, whom we see fairly often, is even willing to put up with Bebop sitting on the table, staring rapturously at his fork as he eats. Our friend won't pet, he's somewhat allergic (more to touch than breathing), but he talks to Bebop. And Bebop sits... and stares.

The only time you leave your apartment is to feed the stray cats in the neighborhood.

Hey! That's not true!
I leave to buy cat food. Also kitty litter and toys and...

You introduce your cats by name to the pizza delivery guy.

We don't take pizza delivery, but I introduce the cats to the bottled water delivery man :-) He's got a cat of his own. Yesterday morning, I introduced Raven. The delivery guy is friendly and says "Hi Kitty!". He also understands about being careful with the front door!
