Hi. I'm trying to think of another description to put here. Any ideas? I'll try again at 420.

The Old Cat Lady

I don't have a cat, but I write about them on a blog. I just heard a woman remark that she didn't want to become the "old cat lady". I have a huge problem with that comment.

I've known a couple of cat lady's in my day and they were sweet and caring people. (Well, they were sweet and caring to cats.) I've been a cat lady but not an old one. I would be one if I could, I just can't responsibly care for a cat right now but sooner or later I will be able to and then I'll be an old cat lady. I'll even get a nice big dog some day and then I'll be the old dog and cat lady. I will still be a valuable human being, just more so to animals than to other people. So, if you don't want to be an old cat lady, that's just fine. But don't make derogatory comments about those of us who are proud to be old cat lady's.

I came here specifically to say something but the old cat lady thing messed me up. I'll be back very soon, I have to remember what it was. I know I will because I've thought about it a few times since yesterday, I just forgot for the moment. BRB.

The status that a person holds is the result of the decisions made in life. One may be an old cat lady but there should be no problem as long as that person finds satisfaction in her life.

I'm pretty sure that was my point. I was simply defending women who chose that path.
