24 Signs You’re Living Under The Velvet Paw

You know you're living under the velvet paw when:


1. You have hundreds of pictures of your kitties and their pals, but have to hunt for one of your human friends and family.

2. Everything you own is covered with a light sprinkling of fur.

3. You can tell your furry friend's meow from that of other cats.

4. There is a space on the sofa that is for kitties only.

5. You order takeout that you and your fuzzy like rather than something only you can eat.

6. You know your cat's favourite foods off by heart but aren't too sure if you can say the same about your three closest human friends.

7. You call the non-furry loved one by the furry friend's name.

8. It's not your pillow anymore.

9. You know the names of the cats who live with your colleagues but not the names of their human family.

10. You can tell a meow for food from a "Meow, I am in trouble" and "Meow, I am bored".

11. You look at a baby picture and think they look odd without fur.

12. You have to bite your tongue and not tell kitten stories when people talk of their human babies.

13. You talk easily of fur friends and don't get it when people look at you funny.

14. You leave a dinner/party early "because the cats will be lonely".

15. You watch Animal Planet because it's what the fuzzies like.

16. You won't befriend someone who actively dislikes cats.

17. You lie on the edge of the bed because your fur friend is so comfy all splashed out in the center of the bed.

18. Your neighbours think of you as "that weird cat woman".

19. Your meow is so good that your furry friend thinks you are a kitty too.

20. You have to set severe curbs on how often you talk about your cat so you don't bore others.

21. Your partner knows not to say, "It's me or the cat." 

22. You take a day off work because your kitty isn't well.

23. You choose your home based on how suitable it is for your furry friend's needs.

24. You won't move to a country where they make your kitties go into quarantine.

Splendid Little Stars said...

very serious velvet paw conditions! Shouldn't everything be covered in fur?

Cat-in-Sydney said...

You talkin' 'bout my Mama? har har har *evil laughs*

AL said...

Very well said! But you missed one thing...that every corner of sofa sets were made into scratch posts!

Neri said...

ch-ch-ch-ch-check!!!

Gee said...

True enough what you have listed. It happens down here.

Gattina said...

This fits at 99 % to me especially n° 1, I realize that I only have cat pictures in my wallet, lol !
But I am not called "weird" cat woman, but Madame Chat, which means Mrs. Cat.

happy said...

LOL! How very true! Sounds a lot like my LS too.

The Chair Speaks said...

Hahaha! So true!

The Paw Relations said...

LOL! This is all very true, especially number 16.

One of my husbands friends he hadn't seen in years came round and when my husband asked if he liked cats the 'friend' stated that he hated them and if one came near him it'd better watch out.

Needless to say the visit ended shortly after that and he's never been invited back.

Boom Nisanart said...

Love your posted ! ...so true

Dora said...

Wow! Target is really have a nice nap huh!

Ginger said...

This is a pretty accurate description of me as well...especially having to bite my tongue about my babies. Many of my students last year knew my cats' names. That says a lot.

Huffle Mawson said...

Ha! Mum says she is not quite a crazy cat lady yet :)

Julie said...

Oh my goodness you nailed it! Right now I am sitting on the edge of my desk chair because Mimi was here first, and eating a certain cereal because she likes the way it makes the milk taste for her lol. Very funny and true list!

Simba said...

This is a very very true list. Also, I have to curb myself when talking to others, not to say "one of the cat blogs I read ........."

Kay said...

good idea Au! I will use this as KPI for my survant!

purr, snoopy

Simba said...

I hope you don't mind that I have linked to your post. If you don't want me to, please leave a comment and I will take the post down.

Brian said...

I guess we qualify with 23 outta 24!!!

Më| §zë said...

haha!!! how true...

Irishcoda said...

Yes to all and one more for me--your "all-about-everything" blog ends up being about the furry friends and all your followers are other people also living under the velvet paw!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Check ... check ... check ... check ...

catsynth said...

I can certainly identify with some of these :)

BeadedTail said...

Our mommy is certainly living under the Velvet Paw cause we could check everything off the list!

Cat said...

The Island Cats said...

Haha! Our mom says she can relate to every one of those signs!!!

Lucy the Cat said...

Ha ha! This is great! I can relate to just about all of these. Great and fun post!

Cat with a Garden said...

Wow, guilty in almost all points. The velvet paws rules!

Eric and Flynn said...

Yup, that about sums our mum up.

Katnip Lounge said...

Well...I guess I do all 24.

nasi ayam said...

hahahaha.. really love this post.. you really make my day!!

New Jersey Memories said...

I remember taking using up rolls of film to take pictures of my cats (in the pre-digital days), and none of people. Some people I know that it was weird. What do they know?

T said...

as a single woman living in NYC with cats! i enjoyed this post! Don't think i am living under the velvet paw quite yet....but i'm very close!

Olga said...

So um... One actually can NOT distinguish meows?

Dwanny said...

a LIGHT sprinkling of fur? Surely you jest.
Being an ethical vegetarian, that's the only kind of fur I wear!
#12:If ppl show me pictures of their human babies, then they should expect me to show pics and tell stories of MY babies.
All the pictures in my cell are of the kids.
All my real friends have fur babies too.
I fully agree with the one about not liking ppl who don't like non-human animals.
#20:NO!!!
#21:N/A
I embrace the title Crazy Cat Woman. (I love Madame Chat too)
