I am a cat lady. I grew up in the house of a cat lady. I have not crossed that thin line between cat lady and crazy cat lady; but given the right circumstances, I think there is the potential. In a way, I am every bit the stereotype of a cat lady. I have a vast collection of books and work in a bookstore. There is nothing sweeter than knitting with a cuppa tea and a cat in your lap. I wear glasses. Oh, and you can betcha that I have been overheard having long in depth conversations with my fur people.
What is it about cats? Well, unlike dogs, cats don't have a codependent need to please. They are independent , soft, compact critters with their own personalities. They lay about like scatter rugs. In a way, the perfect home decor.
Alas, we have a rule in this house. One dog= Two cats.
