Crazy Cat People of the World, Unite!

Happy CatBlogging Friday once again, and a special welcome to Carnival of the Cats readers! Mrs. Toast is concerned that she is becoming a Crazy Cat Lady. While I think this is a stretch, I can say that she does have a symbiotic relationship with our furbabies, as you can see below:

Fortunately, she's not the only person in this predicament. The people who designed The Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure certainly must know such a person, because this bizarre toy captures the essence of the Cat Lady Phenomenon, complete with bathrobe, checkered pajama bottoms, headband, wild hair, and a fanciful look on her face. And she's surrounded by six cats that own her heart and soul.

Think you could be a Crazy Cat Person? Take this Quiz:
  • Do you get excited when you hear a can opener?
  • Do you think cats are smarter than people?
  • Do you feel Tom is more talented than Jerry?
  • Do you have more cats than ex-boyfriends or ex-girlfriends?
  • Do you bring new boyfriends/girlfriends home so the cats can meet them?
  • Do you later break up with them because the cats weren't impressed?
  • Do you spend more on doctor bills for your cats than for yourself?
  • Do you buy the ice cream your cats prefer instead the kind you like?
  • Can you tell your cats apart by the roughness of their tongues?
  • Have you ever warned a guest not to sit on a specific piece of furniture because it belongs to the cats?
  • Do you own more than one piece of clothing with a cat on it?
  • Do you have a website devoted to your cats?
  • Is the sheet of instructions for watching your cats while you're on vacation longer than a page?
  • Do you spend more on Christmas presents for your cat than for your family?
  • Do you buy more than one kind of cat food because a few of your cats are picky eaters?
  • Have you ever had to explain to a police officer that the stuff in the bag really is catnip?
  • Do you feel that the ancient Egyptian tradition of cat worship is the one true religion?
If you answered "yes" to 7 or more of these questions, you could be a Crazy Cat Person! Go directly to this site for an immediate feline fix, then proceed as quickly as possible to your nearest animal shelter and seek professional help!

    Dear Mr.Toast,
    I think you are a Crazy Cat Man. I only hope you do not morph into a feline & tattoo your face, reconstruct your nose and get those whisker implants. I seriously saw a dude like that on TV. Then again it might be neat, and I bet your cats would identify with you even more. I just think your Dr.'s may frown on it, I don't want you to jeopardize your status!

    Um. I scored 7. Borderline. ;-) Though only because right now we just hav the one cat, or else that would have gone up.

    I have a friend who would be off the charts with that quiz, having 6 cats, and being completely neurotic about them. She shall remain nameless...

    Cute pic of Mrs Toast and kitty.. Aw..

    PS, Dogma, that dude lives here in Seattle now, apparently. Robert's seen him wandering the streets. Surely there's only one of them?

    (Please God!)
