I guess you could say I was kind of a cat lady...but just a little.
Their names? Chloe (a black one) and Olivia (a tabby).
I think they really prepped me for life with kids.
No diapers, of course, but there was a lot of poop involved.
There was night waking too. Every morning at 4am, my sweet 'lil Chloe would sit by the front door and "sing" me awake. I'd go get her and bring her into my bed. It was the only thing that would shut her up. Hmmm, sort of the same as what's happening in our house right now, minus the sitting at the front door...oh, and the "singing".
So I say I was a cat lady...but I wasn't a CRAZY cat lady. It's not like I took them to sit on Santa's knee at the SPCA or anything. Okay, maybe I did...don't judge me.
It's not like I bought 'lil mini kitty antlers in the hopes of placing them atop of their furry 'lil heads to take a Christmas picture. Okay, maybe I did. But maybe they wouldn't wear them and so I didn't get the picture I wanted and maybe it was a big waste of money ...
... or maybe it wasn't ...
I now know that buying those antlers for my kitties was not a waste of my time or money
Perhaps I bought them with some subconscious knowledge that one day the picture I managed to capture would be used for a higher purpose, like linking up with Taming Insanity and her "Antler Up" linky post where she's asked us to don a pair of antlers.
So without further ado, here is the picture that I did take of me and my cats with the antlers I bought for "them" ...
Please enjoy this most festive of holiday photos ...

Be sure to check out the other brave bloggers over at Taming Insanity who have donned some of the most impressive antlers I've ever seen. See what I'm saying? Brave, not crazy.
