Cat Obsessed

Does your life revolve around you cat? Is your cat your best friend? The love of your life? You just might be obsessed. Here are the signs.

  • You spend more money for quality cat food than you spend for your own food.
  • Your cat has first say on where she wants to sit or lay down. Only after she is satisfied with her chosen spot, do you sit down.
  • Your cat has her side of the bed.
  • You don’t go to the doctor because you can’t afford it.Yet, money is no object when it comes to your cat.
  • You turn down social invitations to spend time with your cat.
  • You worry that you are not spending enough time with your cat.
  • You have more pictures of your cat on your desk, on Facebook and on your phone than your family members.
  • You check the status of your cat’s poo at least once a day to make sure there are no issues.
  • The litter box is the cleanest spot in your house.
  • You worry over your cat non-stop and wake up several times during the night to make sure your cat is still alive.
  • When you talk to your cat and she answers you understand just what she is saying.
  • You meow at your cat.
  • Your cat has a blog, a Twitter account and a Facebook page.
  • You have written no less than 10 online articles about your cat.
  • When you are out with your friends, all you talk about is your cat.
  • You’ve taken your cat to work ~ on more than one occasion.
  • Your cat has more bowls than you have dishes.
  • Your cat eats at the kitchen table.
  • When you are talking about your baby, you are referring to your cat.

There is nothing wrong with being cat obsessed. I say go for it. Life is short. Cats don’t live forever. In fact, don't forget to check out the gallery of my cat, Miko. And, no I am not obsessed . . .much!

At one time I may have been accused of this. At one time my daughter and I had way more kitties than we should have. We were a halfway house for them at the same time we were a half way house for possums plus we already had eight of our own.

Thanks for the smiles....I only have one to fuss over now..and she, by choice, is an indoor/outdoor kitty.

Sending Angels to you :) ps

3 cats is a blessing Marcia Ours.

@always exploring ~ too bad you are allergic. At least you know, some people get a cat and have to give it up due to severe allergies which must be so hard.

When we had a cat, we were guilty of some of these points. They seem to take over the household without your even knowing it until someone else points it out to you. Funny and so well done.

@teaches12345 They do take over. Thanks for reading.

Funny hub, I don't have a cat but even with some friends cats and my grandparents cat I felt some of the described "cat obsessions".

Your cat seems cute and photogenic.

Hi Marie - I am laughing at this somewhat tongue in cheek list and it's true I must be cat possessed - lol - Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel definitely own me and I am their housekeeper and staff - lol - but they are also my best friends and I couldn't live without them - thanks for telling the truth and you can thank me for telling the truth too. lol

So nice to meet you and I hope you are enjoying your Superbowl tonight and I am sending you warm wishes from snowy cold lake erie time ontario canada 8:14pm and I am watching the game online

Thanks for the nice comments epigramman, I know what you mean ~ Miko means the world to me and has been my best friend through all the good and bad. She is old now, and I wonder how I will go on when we have to part. I treasure each day we have together.

I don't have a cat I have a herd of three cats and two honorary cats (dogs that I have to amuse the cats) .

@ Rebecca Furtado I like your remark about "honorary cats."

Cute hub and you have some great cat photos in this hub. Your cat looks similar to our Peaches. Yes...I have written a number of cat hubs. Ha! We have 2 at the moment, Dusty and Peaches. And then there is Skippy the Pomeranian who we inherited from my mother. Dusty would just as soon dispatch Skippy out of the house. They have a shaky truce most days. :)

I have so many pictures of my cat Peggy W. Crazy cat obsessed am I, and cats definitely end up being the boss of the house.

What a great hub. You are obviously a cat person, as I am. And, yes, I'm obsessed with my cat. Why bother to have a cat if you can't be obsessed with them! I will enjoy following you on HubPages.

I agree Jane Holmes. Thanks for stopping by my hub.

Okay, so I didn't score "obsessed" on the test, but I do have 6 cats.Does that count? LOL. Cute hub. I really enjoyed it. Many votes!

I think having six cats counts. Thanks for reading and the nice comments.

I LOVE cats and have two right now, wish I could have more. I wouldn't say I am obsessed about them but I knew a girl who was so obsessed with her cat that she even threw birthday parties for her, no kidding. Great hub, thank you.

Cats are the best. I wish I could have two and not just one.
