The Crazy Cat Lady

CAT3CAT1CAT2

 

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.

Dresses eccentrically.

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!”

XOXO

  1. Love this article and thought that you could be talking about me. Except I am no longer lucky enough to live alone. Again great article.

  2. I am one of the official cat lady among my circle of friends. I only have one cat named Pumpkin (aka Poopkin), but I love everything cat related. Clothes, hats, bags, jewerly, pillows….but I don’t live alone, I have lots of friends, and I don’t have eccentric tsste in clothing (at least I don’t think I do LOL)
    I even got my bf into loving cats & he is the best cat daddy ever to my fur baby!!
    So I loved reading this article, it was a fun read!!
    I even made a Facebook page for my cat, look him up : Poopkin Ly

  3. Love Love all your articles! About Poshmark and this post about Cats makes me happy. I have seven of my own…and I could be called the Cat Lady with fabulous shoes…but I dont care…I love my babies. I also have my Miniko, a border terrier girly girl. Your insights about Poshmark are so on point. I will definetely like to be a suggested user and I would work towards that goal. Would you mind checking my closetout and let me know if I oversee any violations? my closet is @lluviaonix

  4. I LOVE that someone finally said it!!! We are PURRRRFECT just the way we are!!! I once had 5 felines (3 mine and from an ex)!! Once my middle school students got a hold of that info, I soon got tagged as “The Crazy Cat Lady” on campus! Lol! 🙀
    I have a handful of carefully chosen friends and am finicky about what I do/where I go- sounds a LOT like my now 2 kitties!
    On that note, my orange tabby, Sunshine, got Host Pick this week!!! 🐱🙌🐱 I’m so flabbergasted and excited about this- moreso than I would’ve been if any article of clothing were chosen!!! I’ll tag you so you can see my cutie pie fur-baby! Meow for now! ❤️=^..^= ❤️
