    You sit on the most uncomfortable chair in the house because the kittys are sleeping on all the comfy ones. :D

    You will sit still for hours (even though you'd like to go to the bathroom, eat, etc.) because your cat has graced you by sitting on your lap. :D

    ~ You lay in bed and wind up late to school or work because if you move, you will disturb your kitter. ~ You have had so many claw marks, that some times you dont realize you are cut. ~ You chase your kitty all over the house in order to appologize for stepping on her tail. ~ Your cat doesnt ride in a carrier but instead on a leash on your lap. ~ You spend hours on end looking for the perfect present for your kitty. ~ You spend most of your pay on your cat.

    You sleep in the most uncomfortable position so you don't disturb the kitty taking up most of the bed! :))

    You sit down to a lunch of bread & cheese while the cat has the last of the roast beef, chicken, turkey, whatever.

    You buy a king sized bed, just so the cats have plenty of room.

    :)) You can't sleep unless there's at least one kitty in bed with you You develop UTI's galore because you can't get up out of bed to go to the bathroom cuz the kitty's laying your legs and you would rather risk a UTI or wetting the bed than disturbing her. The doc looks at you like your nuts when you explain why you have the UTI! Instead of bragging about your kids/husband/family at work, you talk about/show pics of your kitties Most of your library consists of cat books in sections of Behavior/Health, Breeds, Fiction and those cute little kitty books from Bowtie Press You think the BEST magazine ever to be printed is Cat Fancy You buy an embarrassing amount of litter and cat food, then feel you have to explain to your companions/checkers/strangers that you have more than one cat! You carry around your cat's fur, whether it be on your clothes or in a Ziploc baggie! You think of rethinking your whole career plan, even considering going back to school so you can be a vet or vet tech and be around more kitties The reason you got the digital camera was not to take pics of family, freinds or scenery, but to take pics of your babies. . .which means your kitties!

    You keep your cats collar around your wrist when you go on vacation because you miss them.

    *your excuse for not throwing away the moving boxes is because your baby likes them. *you sleep on the very corner of the bed cause your baby is sleeping in the middle. *all your cameras have wwaaayyy more pictures of your baby than anything else. *you dont get nice furniture because you just cant bring yourself to declaw your baby *you dont even notice the smell anymore *you have second dibs on all food in the house....baby always gets first coice. *you let baby inspect all food before consumption, and if she wants to eat it...well, to bad for you.

    ~You no longer WANT to go to the bathroom alone. ~You sit dishes on the floor instead of the sink because of the pitiful looks. We SO agree with all the rest of these! Mama sees herself in a lot of them!

    Scratches to the face from the "little one" wanting me to make a "tent" so she can cuddle under the covers. And yes, as said previously, i will hold it as long as possible so as not to disturb her) (Yup, I am that little one! I am cute! I am fluffy and sharp!)

    When you use the bathroom, you don't even bother to latch the door because one kitty wants to go in, then the other wants to go out, then another wants to come in, etc etc. This continues as long as you are in the bathroom. :))

    These are all funny and true! You can\'t move around in your bed because you think it will disturb your kitty-cat. Share some of your dinner (only things kitties can have) with your furry furiend. You feed the cats before you eat in the morning. You sing with your cats. Mom actually sings \"Happy Birthday\" with Jay...he meows to it! :)) When your away and someone is baby sitting you cat you always have to say hi through the phone.

    ...when you buy furniture, you consider how comfortable it will be for your cats (yes, we just bought a new couch and considered that the cats could find a comfy spot on the back before buying). ....when you buy a recliner that is more for the cats' comfort than your own (also guilty!)

    someone asks you a question you didn\'t quite hear and your answer is \"meow?\" (this has become a standard response for one of the humans in our house) your reflexive response to irritation is a sharp hiss someone asks: \"what happened to you?\" and you don\'t know what they\'re talking about until they point at your hands and wrists. you automatically check the drawer for occupants before you close it. you keep your jewelry and pens in a bag inside a bag inside a zipped up canvas bag in the bottom of a drawer...and still aren\'t surprised when your jewelry and pens wind up under the couch, in your bed, in the cats\' bed, in the litterbox... you check the default language on your scanner before use-kaya likes to set mine to norwegian you back out of all outside doors, and return inside with unseemly haste-to prevent escapes your myspace pic is a pic of your cats your myspace status updates always include information on what your cats are doing you destroy your socks to make sweaters and socks for your cats...(the sweaters they liked, the socks they heartily disapproved of-hey, it was cold...) you\'ve tried your cats\' canned food just to see why they go so nuts over it you know what sodium bentonite is, even if you do think it\'s a lot of noise over a naturally ocurring product of volcanic ash-you still know what it is, and you\'re not a geologist or chemist. you\'ve found yourself praying to Ceiling Cat
