Because I am a Crazy Cat Person...

Because I am a crazy cat person, I save the little numbers inside the bags of Pounce treats, even though they stink to high heaven (which the cat probably loves), and I take them to the computer and enter them into a website and try to win prizes.

This guy could eat his weight in treats every day.

And because I am a crazy cat person, I have entered enough of these numbers to win a toy. Oh joy, a toy! So I order the toy, and it gets here many weeks later, and a part is missing so I can't put it together exactly like it is on the box. I do my best, spray it with catnip spray and set it out. Treat cat thinks it's stupid. Boyfriend calls, I tell him I just got the stupidest cat toy ever.

Then I hear a clatter.

Not stupid

Not stupid at all

In fact it is most awesome

So I guess I can keep the ugly piece of plastic until she tires of it. Maybe it's a more fun toy when you have claws, as she does, and the other does not.

And because I am a crazy cat person, we went and got a third cat last night. His name is Frankie (because he has blue eyes) and he is handsome and gentle.

He is a perfect office companion so far. He sits behind my head and purrs while I type.

Now back to the kitties...

I'm a cat person, too. I have Stripe, Sam and Laney. I'm crazy for them and I never trust anyone who doesn't like cats. I can just see you cutting out the little numbers to get the free toys! Hey, I'd do it! I'd do anything for my babies. We stayed living in our house for all the time we did because I didn't want to uproot the cats. Now, THAT'S crazy...but it's just what I do!

I've never moved with a cat -- I imagine it would at least give me pause. I think when we do move, we'll go to a bigger place, so I won't feel too bad for the furballs!

Oooooh! Such wonderous cuteness!!!! I have to go and cuddle one of mine now...

Aw! Your icon is squee-cute too!!!

Aww I'm so glad you got Frankie!
I'm a crazy cat person too. And there is always one in the bunch that likes the stupid toys. The rest just like... plastic bags, boxes, the laundry basket anything they shouldn't be playing with. One even likes to get on the computer when I am not watching and send gibberish IMs to people. The best was when a spammer IM'd and he replied - in gibberish.

Max isn't my cat, it's the only cat icon I have at the moment.

I keep thinking I need a crazy cat person icon. One of these days.

I lOVE your kitty replying to a spam IMer in gibberish. That's one of those fact-is-stranger-than-fiction moments for sure.

The treat cat (Puffy) is my extra-special baby. Poor thing, his dour face doesn't really match his ebullient personality.

That toy looks like something Willie Wonka developed :D

Had Puffy just had a "Lion" haircut? The more I looked at the picture the more I saw our Gus last spring after his haircut. The same disgusted expression. The same pathetic little bit of fur at the end of his tail. I'll have to dig up the pictures I took of him and they can commiserate.

The fur at the end of the tail is pretty sad. Yes, that's Puffy's spring "lion" haircut. I know he looks miserable, but actually he loves suddenly being able to reach all his "parts." He grooms and grooms like crazy after we have him shaved.

This year a mobile groomer even came over to do it, so he didn't even have to do a car ride. (Another much-hated event.) Do post your photos. I love seeing frowning shaved cats. It must be a neurosis.
