Cat love

Cat love
So how many cats before you are considered a crazy cat lady?  I have a mug to prove that someone thinks I am one, and I only have three.
Cats are so misunderstood.  When I tell people I take care of cats, the usual response is a laugh and a question, oh do you walk them on a leash?  My cats are very loving, they sleep with me, they watch TV with me, they like spending time with me.  I thought maybe they are different.  As I began to build my Cat Sitting Empire in Boston, and met more and more cats, I realized that there are many friendly and loving cats out there.  No one hid from me, no one hissed at me, no one was evil to me.  I love watching them clean themselves, I find that very relaxing and soothing, they are so graceful in each and every move.
They make you earn their love.  If a cat comes over to you, it is because he chose to, not because you told him to.  He may hiss at you or swot at you.  That is only because he has healthy boundaries and is telling you no.  I can learn a thing or two from them and so can most people.
So next time someone calls you a crazy cat lady, don't be mad, just feel bad for them, as they have not experienced the love of a cat.  Meow!
