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.

I'm only 35, but I'm sure my neighbor's grandkids think of me as the crazy lady with the cat! :lol:

I only have one cat -- his brother died :( and he's too territorial to accept another cat in the house. I prefer to have two so they can keep each other company when I'm at work.

I have had cats all my life, I love cats. I have even cats tattooed on my arm! I really miss a cat now, but it's not possible to have a cat where I live now. :(

Hell, yeah. My husband is one of those people who can't abide animals in the house, but he's ten years older than I am, so given the usual statistics, I should have some good cat years left. The minute he's out, the cats come in.
The mistake some people make, though, is taking in too many. It stops being kindness and becomes cruelty.

Oh, I wouldn't want loads of cats, I wouldn't want my house to be one of those pet smell houses.

I'd like one or two though. So I guess although I ticked mad old cat lady as opposed to mad old lady, I'm actually somewhere between the two.

A very old friend of mine always jokes that I'm going to be one of those old people who is found dead some time after the event surrounded by heaps of newspapers.

I'm not that bad when it comes to general clutter, but I do have a bad newspaper and magazine habit. :oops:

I've said for years that it's my ambition to grow into a very eccentric old lady. I want to have one of those hairdos where they dye it candyfloss (cotton candy) pink! :D

When I'm an old lady, I want purple hair like Mrs. Slocombe's on Are You Being Served? :lol:

No, because I will be too busy basking in my husband's love to hoard cats. <3
