Yes to all!
And my neighbors probably do refer me to the crazy lady with all the cats!

"You blink slowly in greeting people you like" and conversely, " You hiss to discipline the kids"

Mayeb it's from working at the cat shelter for 2 years with only about a week holiday. But I can mimik any sounds a cat makes (other than purring) perfectly. You should see the cats when I start to howl as if a fight was about to start

Having been around cats for all of my 40+ years, I'm the same way! I've been working on the purr and haven't quite got it without choking.

These all fit me to a T! Especially the diet of cat fur. I consider brushing the cat's hair to be the latest in my diet regimen!

"you sleep on the edge of the bed because the cat is in the middle looking sooo cute!"

That happens just about every night - and with both of my cats on the bed, and I have a VERY small bed.
But I don't mind!

That's so true, oh my goodness! Especially the diet of cat fur, calling people by the cat's name, hissing to discipline, being at a loss for words with non-cat people, and apologizing when stepping on toy, lol. My my my we're a bunch of weirdos! I love it!
post #21 of 25
Oh, boy, I've done most of these things too. Funny thing is people hair in food (even my own) grosses me out, but I don't mind cat hair!

How about ... You don't really mind being woken in the middle of the night to fix a snack.

lmao I am guilty of all those and more...so are my kitties

...you do not consider an outfit complete without some cat hair.
Well, let's just say I know I can't escape it so I don't worry too much about it.
...you apologize when you step on a fuzzy cat toy in the dark. Yup.
...you snap your fingers and pat the sofa beside you to invite your guests to sit down. I do believe I have done this.
...you sleep on one edge of the bed because the cat is sleeping in the middle looking soooo cute! Do this all the time.
...your neighbors refer to you as "the crazy one with all the cats." If they don't, it's only because my neighbor Mary feeds the feral colony in our neighborhood, so she probably takes that honor.
...you have the cat meow on the outgoing message of the answering machine. I would if I could get them to meow on command.
...you chose a house to buy based on it having a good location for the cat box. We haven't bought a house yet, but when we do, we will definitely be taking that into consideration.
...you own 17 varieties of kitty-nail-clippers. Three, at least.
...you meow so well, you confuse the cats. One of my favorite pastimes.

That's what's on the SD card in the expansion slot of my PDA.. only 16 just now, but it could hold lots more (my, but that's convenient)
