Is It Possible to Turn Into Crazy Cat Lady When You Don’t Have Any Cats?

Duuuuude, I’ve been sick.

Like, non-sexy Barry White sick.

The pros of having a husky voice have been Godzilla’d on by my ridiculous wheeze and old man shuffling around the house.

I feel like poop and I want to write very little other than, “I FEEL LIKE POOP!” over and over.

I try to break up my days by checking out the seven feral kittens that hang out in my neighbor’s yard.

I like to squat down behind the fence and try to coax the baby kitties to come near me. My neighbor doesn’t know she has baby kitties in her yard and I’m waiting for the day when she comes out and sees me creeping around her yard with a shit-eating grin on my face. Wouldn’t be an uncommon thing to see in East Austin.

Needless to say, the baby feral kitties won’t come near me and I leave feeling dejected. Thanks for making me MORE sick, fucking kittens.

Is it possible to turn into the Crazy Cat Lady when you don’t even have any cats?

Geoff and I are going to offer to help catch and neuter/spade the kittens. With our bare hands.

Any recommendations on good places to take feral kittens to get fixed in Austin?

Also, want to help me name the seven little tikes below? Most of them are gray and white, a few are gray and one is fully white. All of them have ‘tude. Freakin’ feral kittens.

    You can take feral cats to the Austin Humane Society to get fixed and vaccinated for free. Info here:

    They are so cute! Emancipet (who are totally awesome, by the way) will spay them for free.

    You should keep one and name it Barry White.

    The Austin Humane Society has a feral cat program. They will provide you traps so you can catch them and then will provide at no-cost to you vaccinations and spay/neuter services.

    Hey there! Animal Trustees of Austin on Cameron Road is the best place to get those little guys spayed/neutered. They sure are cute – good luck catching them though! 🙂

    Aah! I want one. Or all of them. Mama looks like she’s ’bout to cut a bitch if you come any closer. And I like Kristen’s suggestion about Barry White.

      Poor mama cat has been looking tired lately. Nursing seven kittens must be exhausting!
