The other day I went outside and came upon a cat,
who sat upon my lap.
Then another happened along,
and it soon became a throng....
(My back fence this very morning)
Ok, so I'm back to the blog after a brief hiatus. I told the facebookers a couple days ago that I had rushed inside and jotted down some things I've been pondering about cats (Yes, I DO realize that sends up a freak flag with a paw on it, but I'm ok with that.) And, since that brought out a few of my fellow cat loving
freaks friends, as well as a few that just enjoy a side show- I figured I'd share.
It wasn't really a list of questions to be answered by other cat "enthusiasts" (That sounds better right?), but more a batch of thoughts pertaining to cats that might be better expressed in the Jeff Foxworthy way. So here were my passing cat fancies:
You might be a Catlady if....
...you seriously ponder purchasing a 3ft. tall rod iron cat shaped plant holder from a store called "Oops!"- though it is quite clear you are not a "plant person".
... you coax a cat you've never seen before over to you, then let it lay on your lap for thirty minutes while it kneads it's claws into your wrist.
...you look deep into previously mentioned cat's eyes as it adores you, and wonder if it could possibly be an angel sent in this form with a special message just for you. Then you wait a moment for it.
...on your wedding day your friends and family all make a pact to not tell you about the incident involving the cat in the parking lot of the church.
...you yell out "Kittee!!" into the darkness only to realize you may have been talking to a decorative rock in someone's yard.
...you have a "great idea" of what to stencil on your cork board, but are reminded with a sigh from your husband that this particular room already has at least thirteen other pictures of cats in it.
...once upon a time you looked in the mirror and regularly saw a resemblance between you and your cat Tigger.
...your current pets also remind you of him.
And finally, you might be a Catlady if you can come up with such a list about YOURSELF!
Have a purrfectly splended weekend! Meow.
