First off, nothing makes me more excited than society’s sudden acceptance of all things CAT.
Look around you, shirts are adorned with the word “Meow!” and kittens dressed as astronauts. Also, the coffee world has embraced the market’s demand for kitty themed mugs. Pure bliss for a cat lover such as me!
But can we ever get away from the stigma of “Crazy Cat Lady”???
Long ago I decided to embrace it. Why? Well, you have probably decided that this mythical woman is nuts and must be avoided. Maybe it’s time to meet her…
She lives alone.
She is unmarried with no kids.
She has little to no friends.
Odd taste in … everything.
Surrounds herself with cats.
Pretty standard, huh??? Look a little further….
She lives alone. Sounds to me like she knows what she likes and has chosen to live her life to her liking! She is on the go, and that time you assume she didn’t leave her house for a month- she was touring Europe on holiday.
She is unmarried with no kids. Again, unattached… free as a bird. Chances are is that she is a “crazy” aunt and probably the favorite as well.
She has little to no friends. Maybe she has a very best friend or a small tight knit group.
Dresses eccentrically. In the fashion world it’s called personal style- lots of people don’t have it.
Odd taste in … everything. Strong understanding of who she is… doesn’t conform. Everything she owns is something that makes her happy and brings amazing memories. Probably all souvenirs from around the world instead of Pottery Barn.
Surrounds herself with cats. A cat gets her… both are independent, not needy, they respect each others space. It’s the perfect non-codependent relationship.
I believe that this Crazy Cat Lady has the best stories to tell.
The next time someone calls you the CRAZY CAT LADY… Smile and say “THANK YOU!”
