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.
