How Cat-ty are you

I got this in an email on one of my single mother lists. I thought it was pretty funny (if you have/love cats).

Is your devotion to your cat and "cat things" in the training stage, at a moderate level, or extreme? Or are you an all out shameless "cat-a-holic?" Let's just see how you rate as a "cat person," shall we? See how many of these can you give an HONEST "yes" answer to:

  • Can you meow so well that you can fake out your cats? I have been able to in the past, right now I sound like a sick kittyy
  • Have you ever called your husband/wife by the cat's name by mistake?I once called my son Chester. He wasn't thrilled.
  • Do you think of your cats as the "furry kids?"Don't all cat owners?
  • Did you ever decide to buy a house or rent an apartment based solely on the potential spot for the litterbox?Litterbox - no, pet policy-yes
  • Do you think cat hair in your food is a good source of protein? one word, EWWWWW!!
  • Last Christmas did you spend more money on cat toys than you did on gifts for the kids or grandkids?no. My cats have to make due with what they find, and what the previous kitty mom sent with them
  • Are you at a loss as to how to talk to people who don't own any cats?Only people who don't like cats. I can't understand not loving kitties.
  • Does your wallet contain more photos of your cats than your kids or grandkids?Sadly my wallet doesnt' have any pictures right now, unless you count my id pics
  • Have you often slept on the very edge of the bed so that you won't disturb the cat who's sleeping in the very middle? Yes. I often stay put so as not to wake the kitty. They rule the bed adn they know it.
  • Do you leave messages for the kitty on the answering machine? umm nooo.
  • Have you ever invited a guest to sit down by patting the seat and making that noise with your pursed lips? God, I hope not. I'd be major embarassed
  • Does your answering machine have the cat meowing on the outgoing message? If you listen close you can probably hear a cat in the background. Or at least on one of my past messages you could.
  • When you go to the bathroom do you think of it as "using the litterbox"? ummm huh?? No.
  • Have you made a habit of setting a place at the table for the kitty?No my kitties have thier own kitty korner. Of course sometimes they still want to sit on the table.
  • Do you know your cat's birthday (or if not, have made a good guess) and have a birthday party to celebrate?I only have the bdate for one of them. My son has made up birthdays for the other two. They have had sorta birthday celebrations.
  • When your husband/wife gives you the ultimatum, "OK, it's me or the cat," you don't hesitate for even one second. The cat would win hands down. Love me love my cats. When I was with Mike we didn't have a cat though. *sniff*
  • Do your neighbors talk about you as "the nut with all the cats?" I don't think my neighbors talk about me much at all. If they do, I don't think I want to know what they say.

    How many did you answer "yes" to? I think just answering one with a "yes" is enough to qualify you as a "Cat Person." But the number of yes answers determines the degree:

    ***Your "Cat-ability" Score:

    ----1 to 4 yes answers: In training - you could do better, but it's OK, you're learning.

    ----5 to 8 yes answers: Moderate - working on it, improving nicely. Potential is there.

    ----9 to 13 yes answers: Extreme - just about there, almost mastered the art. Keep stretching yourself.

    ----14 to 17 yes answers: Totally possessed, hopelessly devoted, cat-a-holic. Congratulations! (But you'll find no 12 step program here!) Addicted and proud of it, I say! I guess I am only moderate. Just ask my kitties.

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
