Cat Lady

Those of you who know me outside of this blog know that I’m kind of obsessed with cats.  Like, really obsessed.  In the creepiest way possible.  Whatever.  I follow my parents’ cat around hopelessly whenever I’m home.  (He senses my enthusiasm and detests me.)  I’ve been begging Stefan for a kitten since the day we met.  (Two years ago, he gave me this for my birthday as a joke, and now she lives at the BaubleBar HQ.)  Anyway.  Someday I will get my kitten (or ten) but until then, I’m just a little bit obsessed with all things cats.  Hate cats?  I apologize.  Sorry, I’m not sorry.

    Love the notebook! I saw this print on a t-shirt yesterday on Pinterest and it really cracked me up. ;)

    This might be your most epic post to date.  Seven gold stars to you, my dear.

    On a semi-related note, this convo happened yesterday:
    Tier:  ”Real talk:  if I get a kitten but I’m still single/living by myself, does that make me a crazy cat lady?”
    Male Friend:  ”…why not just get a dog?”

    sigh.   I basically just to steal Choupette from Karl and call it a day.

    Must confess I’m not a huge cat person — though i’ve never had a pet! crazy, i know — however those flats and that blue sweater are amazing!

    Oh c’mon: cats are the best thing
    EVER!

    I have two cats, Bricyola, my sister, who is almost
    16 and Avril who is 3 and he’s my son. He’s black, he’s huge and he is the best
    thing happened in my life. When I touch him my world is a better place! I can’t
    explain how I feel when he cuddles me.

    Bricyola is an old lady, she understands when
    people doesn’t like cats but she understands when me or my mum are sad too,
    she’s so sweet. She’s with me from 1996 when I was 9 and she was two months.
    When I cry she sit near me and cuddles me!

    To me they’re just not animals they’re my
    family.

     

    Two pics of my lovely family:

      graceatwood August 5, 2012 at 11:33 pm #

      I know, the worst!! We need to get him shots.. or get you one of those hypoallergenic ones.

  14. Meghan August 2, 2012 at 11:10 am #

    Sooo…. I think your sister said below that Stefan is allergic?  A good friend of mine was dating a girl who had a cat… he’s deathly allergic and doesn’t really like them either.  (I’m deathly allergic but still LOVE cats – go figure)  Anywaysssss – he did that allergy shot thing and now he LIVES with the cat and he’s fine!  So – maybe Stefan should do that!  :)  AND you could get one of those kitties who are supposedly hypoallergenic on top of it?  (Not hairless but somehow hypoallergenic?) 

    • Grace Atwood
      graceatwood August 5, 2012 at 11:34 pm #

      Actually Stefan is not allergic… my sister’s husband Steve is. Lots of Steves and Stefans in our family, ha! We found some hypoallergenic ones for Steve… hopefully they’ll get one someday!

    I know exactly what you mean! I am also a very intense cat lover! :)
    I hassled my partner for 2 and a half years for a cat and one day he just gave in and doesn’t regret it! We got a shelter cat and he’s the cutest, cuddliest little man I could hope for! (keep trying!)
    With regards to the cat loafers, I just bought a pair from this shop for $36 Aus http://www.boohoo.com/flats/paris-black-suedette-cat-face-ballet-shoes/invt/azz63036 in black!

    Hahaha that’s so funny! My roommate this summer had a cat that I’d follow around everywhere. By the time I left she was practically living in my room with me. I miss her already and I’ve only been home 4 days. But I love those flats. Ever since Erika made these on her blog I’ve been wanting to make some too.

    • Grace Atwood
      graceatwood August 5, 2012 at 11:36 pm #

      Wait – someone made them!? How did I miss that!? Please – tell!

      • Kara Endres August 6, 2012 at 12:51 pm #

        Erica from PS I Made This did them here: http://psimadethis.com/post/18071349907/unleash-your-inner-cat-power-from-charlotte

          • Kara Endres August 6, 2012 at 9:03 pm #

            I know! I want to do them soon!! When I saw that post I had one of those slap-the-forehead “why didn’t I think of that?!” moments.

      Aw, thanks Lauren! Love learning how many of us are cat ladies… the best!

    Yet another reason why we probably get along so well. OBSESSED with cats. Joe is horribly allergic, else, there would’ve been 10 cats and 20 carpeted cat apartments up in this bitch ages ago.

      Hahahaha, I never knew this about you! Love that! I am so obsessed… still working on getting Stefan ready for our family of cats… ;)
