Cecily 62% of female cat owners think that having such a pet comes with it's own set of preconceptions.
They worry that it might be getting in the way of them finding love.
The modern cat woman believes in integrating her feline family member’s needs into her home in a manner that aligned with her personal sense of style – whatever that may be.
The term “catification” was coined for good reason.
You can hardly walk into a clothing store without finding a shirt with a cat on it or a necklace with a cat pendant. Images of a lonely old spinster living a secluded life with only cats for company, well I am not quite there yet. Like my beloved cats, I am proudly independent and a free spirit.

Currently a professional blogger in the pet industry who also does freelance writing.Today’s cat woman is not the one-dimensional stereotype the media continues to portray on TV and film.She’s a rock singer (Katy Perry, Taylor Swift), an actress (Kate Walsh), a lawyer, a dancer (Carrie Ann Inaba), a mom with human children, a model (Beth Stern), writer, executive – anyone and everyone! She can be crazy or sane, outgoing or an introvert.and the world has had an absolute blast with that “crazy cat lady” stereotype ever since.
