OK, so thanks to everyone for your comments and e-mails expressing concern that perhaps I've taken this "Cat Lady" thing a bit too far.

In which case I feel compelled to tell you that I was (mostly) just playing around. I mean, sure, many of those bullets applied to me. And, yeah, maybe I need to get out a little more. But, c'mon, if there's one coping mechanism I've learned from life, it's that it's best to make fun of yourself before someone else does.

As long as you can still joke about it, you are OK. We all have our little ways of getting through the day. As long as your Cat doesn't become your Life, right?

Primaries? What primaries? We don't have them here until after it just doesn't matter anymore.
