An Alarming Development

Yesterday my neighbor caught me talking to the cats. He didn't really catch me so much as I looked up in the middle of conversing with several stray cats (yes, I just said several which means more than the two you've already met but Oh my God they're coming out of the woodwork. Literally! They're popping out from under porches and shit.) and he looked away in embarrassment and hurried into his house. And I wasn't just talking to the cats, he saw me making the video below. You know, as one does with their stray cat friends...



Let's recap, shall we?
feeding the cats
talking to the cats
recording videos of cats
and pretty much just being all up in the cat business going down in our hood.

Totally bonkers cat lady, right?

Damn. If I start posting photos of them in tiny human clothing could someone come break all my fingers?

My daughter would love you. She's all about the kitty cats and I'm a dog person. I just spent my time writing a blog post about Tom Hardy, so I think I'm a little cuckoo myself ;)

I don't see the "video below", but yes, you are turning into a crazy cat lady. This coming from another one, so I have some authority on the matter.

I love Bandit's meow!

@Bonny - It's actually the weirdest meow I've ever heard. It's like he's in pain or something.

I bet they sell cat clothing at Target. Would you have to cut your fingers off for that? Are you going to dress em up for Halloween? :)

I give you three months and you'll be living full-time out there on the porch. Finally.

Cute cats. So serious. Good to have a cat as long as you don't have to clean a ca tbox. PU..They will attract many more, and have kittens and you'll never have any problem with house mice.

FYUI: Earlier this year I walked into a patient's home to find 2 large Labs, 9 cats, 14 large birds ( flying free in her aviary/sunroom), 2 HENS (inside) and a large tank of fish. Large tank. PU. The only other person I met who could compete was a woman with 15 dogs ( 11 were puppies), 1 cat, a tank of turtles. a talking bird and a caged flying squirrel. PU.

I am always slightly embarrassed by how much I talk to my cat. Although he's much nicer to talk to than most humans I know. :)

This has nothing to do with the cats, but your face in the video of you at the very end is the spittin' image of little Henry! :)

October 25, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSue

@Sue - SHUT UP! No one has ever told me my kids look like me before! So exciting!

I totally think Henry is more Butler than your mini-Serge daughter!!! Find a pic of you at that age (or one of your brothers) and you'll see it too. And yes, I'm writing this from my honeymoon in T & C:)

Careful, there. Crazy cat ladies can get really crazy: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2168089/Women-cat-owners-likely-kill-higher-chance-infection-parasite-feline-faeces.html

IMHO .. This does Not make you a "Crazy Cat Lady" It Makes You Human !!!

I don't know anyone who hasn't spoken to a cat at one time or another !

Some just won't admit it !!!
