Crazy Cat Ladies
I watched a compelling documentary last night about how one becomes a crazy cat lady. It showed the progression from owning a few cats to owning hundreds. These women are socially isolated and they all had terrible childhoods. They cannot connect with people so they connect with cats. One woman was 35, attractive but had been raised by an abusive alcoholic father. She had 16 cats and she said they were her excuse not to have to reach out to people. It was kind of sad.
