We’ve all heard the label “crazy cat lady” but how many of us really qualify for the title? These are 8 signs that make you a CERTIFIED CAT LADY
1 You stopped wearing certain colors of clothing … because it makes all the cat hair more obvious.
Maybe you avoid wearing black so your kitty’s white hairs aren’t draped everywhere. Or you stop wearing white because your cat is black. Either way, if too much cat hair is the overriding concern, you might have issues.
2 You can’t sleep unless … a cat is in bed with you. Where does your cat sleep?
Do you stay awake wondering where the cat is? Or where your many cats are? If you’re so used to a purring pillow draped over your chest or wrapped around your head that you have trouble sleeping without it, that’s another leap toward crazy cat lady status.
3 You give up your own bed.
If you head to the bedroom to go to sleep, see it covered in cats and choose to sleep on the sofa or another room instead of disturbing the slumbering felines, you might be a crazy cat lady.
4 You clean the litter boxes … before you even have coffee!
You might forget to eat breakfast or lock the front door, but rest assured the litter boxes are sparkling clean every day. By the way, here are some things to look out for as you’re scooping
5 You evaluate your relationships based on the person’s love of cats.
Your dating profile says, “Must love cats.” Even if it doesn’t, you find a way to slip it into the conversation to test your potential date or existing relationship who might not have been to your house yet. If they look like they want to hurl a hairball, you’re out of there.
6 You save every box from deliveries … just because you know your cats will want to play with them. After all, cats do love boxes … why do cats love boxes so much?
7 Most of your pictures are of your cats.
Family photos are displayed lovingly on fireplace mantels and on hallway walls — except in your house, where the cats take center stage while the human photographs hide in a drawer. If you swap out your cat picture for humans when expecting company, add a bonus point for this one.
8 You buy more cat food and litter than you do food at the grocery store.
If you run out of space for your own food because your shopping cart is filled with litter boxes, cat food bags, treats and toys, you might have a problem.
