These are courtesy of MissKitty.com Try this simple test... * Do you select your friends based on how well your cats like them? * Does your desire to collect cats intensify during times of stress? * Do you buy more than 50 pounds of cat litter a month? * Do you scoop out the litter box after each use? * Do you wait at the box with the scoop in your hand? * Do you think it's cute when your cat swings on the drapes or licks the butter? * Do you admit to non-cat owners how many cats you really have? * Do you sleep in the same position all night because it annoys your cats when you move? * Do you kiss your cat on the lips? * Do you feed your cat tidbits from the table with your fork? * Does your cat sit at the table (or ON the table) when you eat? * Does your cat sleep on your head? Do you like it? * Do you have more than four opened but rejected cans of cat food in the refrigerator? * Do you watch bad TV because the cat is sleeping on the remote? * Did you buy a video tape of fish swimming in an aquarium to entertain your cat? * Will you stand at the open door indefinitely in the freezing rain while your cat sniffs the door, deciding whether to go out or come in? * Would you rather spend a night at home with your cat than go out on a bad date? * Do you give your cat presents and a stocking at Christmas? * Do you spend more for your cat than you do for your spouse? * Do the Christmas cards you send out feature your cat sitting on Santa's lap? * Does your cat sign the card? * Do you put off making the bed until the cat gets up? * Does your cat eat out of cut crystal stemware because you both watched the same commercial on television? * Do you microwave your cat's food? Prepare it from scratch? * Do you climb out of bed over the headboard or footboard, so you won't disturb the sleeping cat? * At the store, do you pick up the cat food and kitty litter before you pick out anything for yourself? * Do you cook a special turkey for your cat on holidays? * Does your cat "insist" on a fancy Sunday breakfast consisting of an omelette made from eggs, milk, and salmon, halibut, or trout? * Do you have pictures of your cat in your wallet? Do you bring them out when your friends share pictures of their children? (Pollsters claim that 40 percent of cat owners carry their pet's pictures in their wallets, by the way.) * When people call to talk to you on the phone, do you insist that they say a few words to your cat as well? * Do you accept dates only with those who have a cat? * If so, do you eventually double-date with the cats to see how they get along? * When someone new comes to your house, do you introduce your cat, by name, to them?

Love these! I can add one. Did you have to get a dog and do you love him because the dog protects you from your cat slave masters? My wife and I have four loving demanding cats and one lovable dog.

LOL! That's a good one. I have 12 feline masters, and 2 lovable dogs. Except the dogs are outside away from the cats because they would protect us a little TOO well....they would have the cats for dinner if they could! LOL

Ok Katlady, this is your last warning! Get your cameras out of my house. I know me and my cat are giving you a lot to talk about, but I don't see anything weird with anything in your post! LOL You should see (or maybe you do) the way I get out of bed so I won't wake my cat...I think I could now join the circus the way I can twist my body. LOL

Yeah, I think I've turned into a contortionist myself. Heaven forbid that we disturb the royal kitties! LOL

I guess I don't let the cats sleep since it is generally one of them insisting that I get up in the first place!

I do buy more than 50 lbs of litter - even more than 50 lbs of food. I do have pix of the cats in my purse & I will introduce the cats that come to greet the visitors. I would definately rather spend a good night in with my cat than have a bad date, but the rest - no.

LOL! I think I am guilty of about 2/3 of them. Especially buying them Christmas presents and putting them in stockings. Heeheehee

I actually bought them one of those stockings this last year - but only when the prices had been marked down & there were a few of Oliver's fav toys in it. I think he's lost them under the range now. I kiss my kitties, but not on the lips - ewwww - you know where those lips have been!!!

Wow, that is a lot of questions. Not all of them are a yes; but a few fit. Those coming to my home must like my kitty cat. All potential boyfriends must be fond of my kitty. Cute

lol, hehehe. How true most of them are. Yes I am a slave to my cat and my small dog. Try fixing supper and the kitchen gets mighty crowded with two pets at your feet. Then when the cooking is done you have to make them a plate also. The love eggs the most and any kind of meat that I fix also.

Oh yes, at dinner time I have several "vultures" around me. Selfishness is definitely NOT an option around here at mealtime. LOL

Oh my - I'm almost ashamed of how many of those I have to admit to!!! The Christmas cards I usually send, always feature one or more of my cats with a tree or other decorations, I have pictures of all my cats in my purse, and when I was single I would never EVER have dated a guy who didn't like cats!!!!! Also, I have left the bed unmade for a whole day rather than disturb a sleeping cat to make it properly! And Sasha always sleeps on my head:-))

Prance....the Diva of the house - My pet lifeline adoption baby
I guess you could say you are wearing a 'kitty crown' as you sleep. LOL My Prance does the same thing. Nothing like waking up with a cat on your head and a furry tail around your nose.

Yes! I even maintain an 80-gallon aquarium just so my cat can sit on a stool in front of it and stare at his favorite fish (a cat fish, of course). The aquarium is basically his "cat TV."

Aren't cats hilarious when they are watching the fish? I love it when their little whiskers are quivering as they are watching. LOL

Lol, these are so funny! At least i know i'm not quite a slave to my cat yet then, though i reckon she gets fussier by the day! My gran would past most of that test though, her cat is really, really spoilt!

Of course I adore my cats and have thier pics on my cell phone:) I like to sleep with my cats and now when I moved from my parents house and live without my cats, I feel bad sleeping without them. One of my cats sleeps on my chest and that's nice feeling, but my mom thinks my kitty is to heavy for me - no way;) Moreover, if I fall asleep in my boyfriend's arms I still think "How nice... What a pity that my cats can't also sleep with us";) It's funny but I don't feel like a slave, cats makes me feel good. I love them:)

Awwww....that's awesome that you miss your cats like that. It shows how much you think of them and love them. They are lucky to have a mommy like you.
