10 signs you might be a crazy cat person
MSN Now ^ | Gina Cohen

Posted on 07/08/2013 11:43:27 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

Sure, you love your cat. Or cats! Just because you own a few doesn't make you a crazy cat lady (or guy). It's totally cool that you have a giant cat tree taking up 3/4 of your living room, and perfectly normal/perfectly healthy that you take your cats out for a walk on a leash. Or is it? Here are 10 signs you just might be a crazy cat person (but we love you for it. Own it!). -- Gina Cohen

“It’s totally cool that you have a giant cat tree taking up 3/4 of your living room”

Renfield liked to play on our snake tree...until he ran up it one night while Bob the 7 foot/20 pound Boa happened to be up there himself.

We decided to conduct separate play times after that.

[Bob used to hang out up there watching that cat running around with great interest]

;D

#3 is AWESOME!! Wish we had space for something like that!
(My husband and I once saw a tv thing about a couple that had turned their whole house into a big rumpus room for their cats. They had “ladders” up the walls, shelves all the way around the top of the rooms so cats could walk around, actual holes cut in the walls between rooms so the cats could go between ... and we sat there and seriously thought about doing the same thing to our house! LOL!)

Also plead guilty to #4. Some things are worth more than money. :o)

I'm not a crazy cat person, but I have known some. One pretty fool-proof sign:

You might be a crazy cat person if ... your significant other dreams of being able to rise to the level of playing second fiddle to the cat.

Mine isn't, but only because I don't have a Facebook page.

That’s why cat people shouldn’t marry out.

I had a friend tell me the other day that she and her significant other had done some stuff like that. They have little shelves and pathways on the walls for their kittys.

I don't have a cat, but when I saw this I thought: I want to build it for my cat friends.

"That’s why cat people shouldn’t marry out."

My wife and I first met at a mutual friend's house - we talked about nothing but our cats the whole time....
(We knew we had to see each other again....)

You might be a crazy cat person if your cats participate in FReepathons:

When I moved into this new home, I had a cat door installed next to front door that leads to the garage. IN the garage, outside of this cat door, I had a cage area built with doors where I have 4 litter boxes. No more litter boxes in the house.

My wife has been told she is disqualified from being a crazy cat lady because she’s married. I guess it’s safe for us to get a fourth cat! :)

We've got 2 - a siamese that will be 21 in December ... the other is 8 yrs old.
This pic isn't one of them but I just like it.
