    “How Portraits of Women and Cats Break the “Crazy Cat Lady” Stereotype”

    OK, sure…ah huh…

    Yeah. I thought cat ladies were homely, neurotic, maybe tatted up, got herpes, or otherwise damaged.
    Gosh was I wrong

    The Cat Lady link deserves its own post. If half of those cats could talk from their facial expressions they would say “Get Me The HELL OUTTA HERE!!!!!!”

    C’mon, breaking that stereotype is easy– all Gerard has to do is submit a photo of himself with Miss Olive.

    PA Cat, mymodernmet.com broke that stereotype as well. Sad to say, some of the bois look a bit soi.
    Everyone knows in his heart that dogs rule and cats drool. 🙀

    The Ad-Dressing of Cats by T.S. Eliot

    “Now Dogs pretend they like to fight;
    They often bark, more seldom bite;
    But yet a Dog is, on the whole,
    What you would call a simple soul…
    The usual Dog about the Town
    Is much inclined to play the clown,
    And far from showing too much pride
    Is frequently undignified…
    He’s such an easy-going lout,
    He’ll answer any hail or shout.

    With Cats, some say, one rule is true:
    Don’t speak till you are spoken to.
    Myself, I do not hold with that –
    I say, you should ad-dress a Cat.
    But always keep in mind that he
    Resents familiarity…
    Before a Cat will condescend
    To treat you as a trusted friend,
    Some little token of esteem
    Is needed, like a dish of cream…
    A Cat’s entitled to expect
    These evidences of respect.
    And so in time you reach your aim,
    And finally call him by his NAME.”

    I read “Photographer Debunks the “Crazy Cat Lady” Stereotype with Over 300 Portraits”. It does no such thing; in fact, it reinforces it. The cats all have a hostage video expression on their faces.

    A cat lady can do her hair and makeup, pick an outfit, straighten up the house, smile and keep her eyes from showing her inner pitiable condition for a time, but the cats feel no obligation to play along, and don’t.

    “Rubber duckie, you’re so fine,
    I’m so happy that you’re mine.
    Rubber duckie I’m awfully fond of you!”
