    I Now Live Alone, With Two ...

    I now live alone, with two cats. I'm pretty sure I'll always be alone, but I don't want to have like 50 cats. Dogs... dogs would be better, but I need a bigger house and more land for that.

    I Don't Know...

    It actually doesn't sound that bad.  As long as I could take care of them all, living in a house full of cats could be pretty awesome.

    I Have Two Safeties From This

    one, I am a guy, so, it will never apply, second, I am not the reclusive type, so, I am not, naner naner naner.  Lastly, I only have 5 cats, I think to qualify, you need at least 10.  Once I get 10, the number will be 15.

    The Kitty Bunch

    I've always loved cats, and have had so many in my lifetime that I don't know if I even could remember them all.  I remember as far back as when I was about 3 years old, and we had a cat named Tommy.  About the only thing I know is that he was there when I was born...

    The Gender Gap.

    So, I've been trying to work out what the male equivalent of this particular set of circumstances is. Crazy Cat Chap just doesn't have the ring of truth to it that the female stereotype does. So far I've come up with a range of options, all of which sound fairly appealing...

    I hate to admit it but I think that's where my life is headed. Although perhaps I am a bit young to qualify at the moment my two cats and two dogs are my family. I talk to them and they 'talk' back. Especially the cats, they carry on conversations with me and give me all the...
