After reading through the entire list I have no choice but to conclude that I AM a Sensible Cat Lover. I am smack dab in the grey area, as per usual.

I can relate to some that are the "owner," and a bunch that are the "lover."

So I'm stuck in the middle somewhere....

That is just waaaaay too cute!

Anyone who knows me would say, "Yep! That's YOU, all right!"

There are a few that don't apply, but it's pretty accurate..
