Signs that your cat is your master

So as anyone who reads my articles knws, I'm a cat lady. Yep, my boyfriend knows it (and is), even my co-workers joke with me about it. So does your cat own you? I know mine do. Let me know if you have any more to share!

      have something to add. Have you ever gone to several pet stores to try to find a new toy to replace your cats favorite toy they destroyed. I know the name of the toy and where I got it but I can't find any more of them

      lol. I think my favorite one was "why do they always stick their paw in the water before they drink? Doesn't that make it dirty?"

      My husband wasn't a cat person when we met either. Now he loves the cat just as much as he does our dog even though there are certain cat behaviors he just doesn't get (i.e. Why does the cat meow for food when there's still food in the bowl? Because it's not fresh, duh!). Thanks for making me realize that I'm headed toward crazy cat lady status. ;)

      Haha! Yeah, my boyfriend new from the start that i had "cat problems" after hearing me call my black cat a thousand different nicknames (most mushy and in a high pitched voice of course!). But he loves them, I had two when we moved in but one passed away a few months ago and we recently added three, including a runaway who I cna't seem to find the owner for. Glad he decided to suck it up, lol.

      LOL. I had to read this when I saw the title.

      I'm apparently not as bad as I could be, and a little less "crazy cat lady" now that I have two kids.

      When my husband and I first started dating, he told me that his mom couldn't have a cat anymore because she married a man who couldn't stand cats. I told him then, in no uncertain terms, that I loved my cat, and if he had a problem with that, he would have to find himself another girl. I wasn't giving up my cat.

      Well, he didn't have a problem with it, and now we have two cats - and two girls who also love the cats. :-)
