Crazy Cat Lady Starter Kit

I swear I am so NOT going to become that weird ass teacher who lives in a little house at the end of the cul-de-sac with an overgrown lawn and 400 cats.  If only for the reason that I am not a house buying person. With that being said....

Introducing: SAMSON
Who joins my already two cat-infested apartment after being found abandoned with his little sister. (She has found a good home with another person.)  Toothless (aka Bud E Phat) is taking to him like the cat version of Foghorn Leghorn.  At times he is all "Go Away Kid, You're Botherin' Me" and others he is instructing Samson on the proper arts of cat life in my house:  2 hour power nap sessions, followed by 20 minute spurts of run and attack, repeat as necessary especially in the middle of the night. (Bud is also throwing his weight around. When Samson gets to be too much for him, Bud E. just lays right on top of him.  Then I hear these meews for help and have to go apply the jaws of life to lift 20 pounds of Phat-ass off a 2 pound kitten.)

Elsa the Lioness has decided that a new level of cat-bitchiness can be achieved through hissing and growling.  Since she is such the little attention-whore, she is a little miffed at not being the cutest thing in the house anymore and it has pushed her highness into a slightly anti-social mode.  She's also pissed that I have never put a picture of her on my blog and decided that she was going to hack up everything she ate until I did.  So here is the gratuitous picture of Ms. Lioness:


It's official:  I now have my crazy lady starter kit. I swear on my stack of Jen Lancaster books, that I am never fostering another homeless animal again.  I have SUCKER written all over my forehead.  

I'm off to go play some Stevie Knicks music, find a tie-dyed broom skirt and wear silk scarfs around my head and body.

I certainly hope that Samson decides to grow a big, blond mullet and become the bodyguard for the other cats in the house. Go Team Lisa-Tastrophies!!!

OMG, you totally crack me up. If you are the crazy cat lady then I am the crazy dog lady. Seriously. I have two and was thinking of getting two cats. just say no to adopting animals after you have a couple. LOL

You said "foster," does that mean you are going to give Samson up to a good home?!??!?! Better find one quick, it's easier while they are still little & cute!

Keep kidding yourself lady girl!!! You cat woman you! Your little one is so cute, I love "your Highness" she is nothing like any of mine. None of mine fit the stereotype anti social, I''m gods gift to mankind type. I would love to have a cat like that. It's been hard trying to stay away from the shelter. How do you keep the litter box from stinking up the whole house. That is a HUGE problem for me and I change the darn thing every freggin day!

Abbie:
Yeah, the litter box is an issue. I am a freak when it comes to cleaning it though. I scoop whenever I go by it and flush the stuff (it stinks up the house if I put it in the garbage - even in a closed bag). I also run liquid plumber through the toilet once every other week or so to keep it from getting clogged up. Plus, I am single handedly keeping lysol in business.
I think they are kind of high maintenance in this department, but I love em and its worth the clean up.
