I hope I'll be able to live in a place that would allow cats. I would love to have the company of kitties. On the other hand, they would have to be fixed and I'd have to be able to afford their lifestyle. They'd have to be fixed so disease wouldn't spread. Other than that, yep, an old lady with kitty cats hehehehehe.

I already am. And also a crazy old Spider Lady. People bring me spiders and I let them go in my garden.

Our family adopted cat number ten around Christmas. She's a Calico we named C.C. Not original, but appropriate. Her name means Calico Cat, Christmas Cat, and Cute Cat.

I have 2 cats, but that's my max. I'm definitely already considered an "eccentric". These cats will probably be around until I'm in my 40s, and then I'll probably get another pair. These 2 are best friends...I wouldn't want to muck up my house's "ecosystem".

I'm probably already a crazy old cat lady. I own four indoor cats and have twelve that hang around outside. I live in a rural area and people keep dumping them on our property, so I feed them - can't let the poor things starve. Maybe I'll revise my original statement: I'm a crazed middle-age cat lady. Not ready to call myself 'old' yet...

I also have 4 dogs, two snakes, various birds and about 90 goats. I want to get a horse, but my husband is fighting me on that one. He thinks they're too expensive, and he's probably right.

I hope I get married sometime between now and then but I definitely want lots of kitties. I LOVE kitties, I want at least two kitties for myself as soon as I get my own place. I miss my kitties so much when I'm at school. But thanks to Prissy's (our fat old lady cat who lives inside) love of laying on clean clothes I always have her hair with me to remember her by, and Peep (our outdoor kitty who is still as adorable as she was as a kitten and she knows it) always leaves me with pin sized holes in my legs where she used her claws to get onto my lap or where she kneaded my leg as a sign of "affection"). Ahh...I WANT MY KITTIES!! !! Prissy has such a unique personality it will be sad when she passes away the house will never be the same, shes at least 13 years old probably older but open a can a friskies and she'll run like the wind (she also gets hyper at time and gallops around the house sounding like a herd of elephants). And Peep, well she's just cute, well except when she's eating mouse guts. When she wants inside she uses the pads of her feet on the glass door and makes a squeaky sound, then when you let her in she runs to the rug in front of the door leading to the garage and flops down and makes herself look as cute as possible is hopes that you will pet her for a while before sending her out to the garage. Anyway, I digress...

I AM a crazy old cat lady.... :)

Seriously, I currently only have one cat, but if/when I retire, I can see myself with many more.

I have 2 cats, three bunnies. I don't see my husband being able to tolerate me into my retirement years...so I do intend to have at least two cats.

Already on my way there. Four cats at the moment...and when I do move out, I have to get a companion for my cat, she hates being alone. So if I can afford it, and have a generous landlord/own house, I'd probably have five or six.

Random tangent: I can't stand sharing a bed with another person, but cats? I love having my cats with me at night, especially in winter. Well, except when they start to do their clawing to get me up to feed 'em. That I could do without.

Right now, I'm the weird plant lady, but when we are able to move into a place that can accommodate pets, I'll be the weird cat lady with a couple of lovebirds and maybe throw in a shetland sheep dog for fun and profit.

Interesting discussion. I have a bird, so I can't have cats. (NO CAT!) No dogs either because of my allergies, and also because of my intense dislike of poop and pee on flooring. But to each their own, for individual home decorating preferences may differ.

I met one of these "crazy cat ladies" once, and I know some other people who are also probably classifyable as animal hoarders. It's actually a pathological state that sometimes even endangers the animal hoarder, and many of them probably are crazy. Keeping dozens of cats to poop and pee all over, will be highly effective as a method for repelling would-be partners, if one happens to be aiming for that. I could never live like that, even if at some point I decided to give up on finding a wife and commit more solidly to not giving a rat about what the rest of the world thinks of me.

It's kind of my fear... not so much that I'll have a lot of cats (as I love kitties), but that I'll be one of those crazy old ladies who only has her cats and no one else, and who everyone knows by the distinct smell of the house from down the block. I'm fine with being an eccentric who happens to own cats in her old age, but the whole connotation of the thing is what worries me in regards to my future.
