How I Embrace the Crazy Cat Lady Life and Why You Should Too

So you’re a “Crazy Cat Lady?” Are you scared to embrace it?

If you’re scared to show it, let me say to you that there is nothing to be worried about.

I own seven cats! Yes, you read that right. If you’d like to meet them, journey on over to my Meet the Catspage of my website.

With the high amount of cats I have, I have enjoyed embracing my Crazy Cat Lady stereotype. Majority of my cats are rescues and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Let’s take a look at how I embrace this stereotype.

I buy and wrap Christmas presents

Yes, I know they can’t open them. My cats are my family and they should enjoy getting spoiled on Christmas as well.

They will typically get treats and a crap-ton more toys that they will probably never play with. I like to spoil my cats.

I buy my cats birthday presents

I bought a cat tree for the very first time for Joey’s birthday. He was the first cat I had ever rescued. I found him outside when he was a kitten on September 20th of 2014. One year later, he got the best birthday present any cat would love. He is the most spoiled cat ever.

Here’s Joey and some of his cat friends. As you can see from the picture, he is on the top! Our other cats enjoyed it as well.

I talk about my cats way too much and I don’t care

One thing that my co-workers know about me is that I am extremely passionate about cats. I love sharing my stories about my cats to them. In fact, everyone knows that I love cats and will share their stories about theirs as well.

I am pretty sure that we have a conversation about cats at least once a week at my job.

When I talk to my neighbors, we talk about cats pretty much every time! Our neighborhood was over run with cats at one point so it is always something we talk about.

My phone is always filled with cat pictures and videos

Because my phone is completely filled with pictures of my cats, I had to download the Google Photos app so I can free up some space. From time to time, I ponder at these photos and smile at how much I love and adore my kitties. It’s also nice to see them grow up when they were kittens.

Hey, since I’m single with no kids, my cats are my kids that I love to share. When people show me photos of their children, I show them pictures of my cats. It’s only fair.

I let my cats enjoy the outdoors

There’s one thing I know about cats and it is that they love the outdoors. They love the sounds and smells. I have a fenced in yard which makes it nice to keep the cats within my backyard.

I first introduced my cats to the outdoors in baby steps. The first step was holding them while being with them outside. Once they began feeling comfortable being outside, I left the door open so they could come back inside if they felt frighten. This way, they knew that my home was their safe house.

Another thing to note, I never let my cats outside at night. I can’t keep an eye on them and would be devastated if they were to find a way out of my back yard.

I don’t just let my cats outside and forget about them. In fact, I always stay outside with them and watch their behavior. It is so fun to watch them run around the yard and play with each other.

My cat, Piper, begs me to let him outside. He cries until he gets what he wants. It’s sad, I know. But after being outside, my cats will come back in and sleep for the rest of the day. It’s a win-win scenario.

How You Can Embrace Being a Crazy Cat Lady

You can do everything I do and more! I don’t take my  cats with me anywhere but I am sure some people do, like celebrities.

  1. Talk about your cats too much.
  2. Take too many pictures and videos of your cats.
  3. Buy your cats birthday and Christmas presents.
  4. Hang out with your cats outside.
  5. Travel with your cats.

You can do anything with your cat. They may not know what’s going on, but don’t let that affect you.

I’d love to hear your story. How do you embrace being a cat lady?
