Hey cat, uh, enthusiasts


I don’t want to date you but I do think you should get your cat something for the holidays (whichever holidays you celebrate, or even if you are like me and don’t really celebrate anything but like giving and receiving the gifts and the smell of evergreen).


You are welcome and I am allergic to you.

    About your "I don’t want to date you" line: Well, it sounds like you won’t be dating the types of men like in this NYT article:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/05/fashion/05cats.html?_r=1&ref=fashion

    BTW this article is not at all reflective of me. (I’m a single male, no cats!)

    OMG. OMG! Welcome to my recent dating life! I don’t really have anything against cats (other than that I am allergic), but it’s the whole "love of my life" thing that I find to be a dating red flag. Yes, I have seen it in action. It’s the degree of love for the cat that can be a problem.

    Also, words I never want to hear again:"dog in a cat’s body". It’s always BS. I swear. No more. Just. No. More.

    It may be off topic but I was wandering… so please help me learn: In Polad a single woman who has a cat is thought to be a horrible spinster. Do Americans have the same stereotype?

    Here, the stereotype (which I don’t necessarily agree with) is that an older woman with many cats will stay single (or something like that).
