Do I qualify as a “Cat Lady”?
Question by : Do I qualify as a “Cat Lady”?
I am so paranoid of being called a Cat Lady. I have two, and I do not want any more. Besides, my apartment complex only allows two pets (cats or dogs) total. I’m a vet tech at an animal hospital… so obviously I love animals. I just got a kitten last week. I wanted my adult cat to have company while I’m at work. I didn’t really worry about the whole “Cat Lady” thing until today, when my manager told me I was one since I have two cats. Also, the other vet techs kept saying how cats love me and that I’m the “Cat Whisperer”. I took so much offense to the “Cat Lady” thing. To me it means a smelly old woman with scraggly long gray hair that has at least four smelly cats in a smelly old house. (I am 22 years old.) My pets are like children to me… I rescued my first cat when she was five weeks old. I would never give up either one, but now I wish I only had one cat. Please, someone tell me I do not qualify as a cat lady. I especially don’t want guys to be turned off by it. Heeeeeelllllp.
Thanks everyone for your comments! I’ll continue to read ’em. You guys have been helpful! I feel better 🙂
Thanks girls for your answers… and Gary B, I answer “no” to all those choices :-). Naps with cats, thanks for your insight, and yes I do keep a clean apartment including the litter box 🙂 no smells here!

I have two cats and no one considers me as a cat lady. Sorry!! Don’t worry about it. Just ignore what people say. It was your choice to get another kitten, not theirs! If they other people don’t like what you like, thats OK.
