Cat Ladies

I found this to be a very interesting look at the phenomenon known as "cat ladies," women who collect cats like they were going out of style. Although it seems comical, the condition that they struggle with, animal hoarding, is a serious mental affliction. It's not as funny as you might think. Watch the link below and enlarge your perceptions . . .

We actually purchased our cat from a 'crazy cat lady'. Her house smelled of cat urine and it was a complete disaster. But her mission in life was to be a 'foster parent' to homeless cats.

My kids call me a crazy cat lady, but I only have ONE cat! He is a bit spoiled, but after seeing this video, I am FAR from being that! :)

Yes, be reassured, you are low on the crazy cat lady scale! Interesting that you know a cat hoarder - I'm encouraged that at least she is able to sell some of her cats - that is a good sign for her ability to recover.
