kitten

Crazy cat lady in training.

One of my goals in life has been to become a Crazy Cat Lady (I've got the crazy part down). I'm honestly not sure if I'm kidding. I love cats and I've always wanted multiple cats so I kind of figure Crazy Cat Lady is a life goal I can achieve!

Well for the past few days I've had a bit of of a test run, I've been house sitting for someone who has 4 cats and a dog. I've watched her animals before and they are all sweethearts. But when I watched them it the past it was during the colder months. It's warmer now, and they are shedding. I may not be allergic to cats but there is a good deal of fur floating around and attempting to attack my face.

I guess the shedding issue was one I hadn't really given any thought. So unless I want every garment I wear to turn into some sort of cat hair sweater in the warmer months, I will need to relocate to a cooler climate. Or shave the cats when it gets warm I don't really see this as a problem, I don't like the heat and I've wanted to move to British Columbia since I went there on vacation about 10 years ago (it's freaking gorgeous!)

Either that or I'll need to limit myself to about five cats at a time. Then I'm not so much the Crazy Cat Lady as I am That-freak-with-all-those-cats which I am also okay with.
