The Line Between Cat Fancy and Cat Crazy

I think is so easy to judge them,and is so difficult to do it!this women have an exteme compassion for the cats.

Red flag! For most people, the combo invites the label Cat Lady, says Christie Callan-Jones, a filmmaker.

Callan-Jones’ latest documentary, “Cat Ladies,” tells the stories of four women and their devotion to their cats. Elizabeth Vargas of ABC’s “20/20” recently sat down with Callan-Jones to examine the unique relationship some women have with their feline companions.

For some of the women, pet ownership has turned into an obsession with cats, or an addiction to helping cats. But what made the women “cat ladies,” Vargas found, was more than the number of cats the woman owned, be it three or 123. More influential was the emotional attachment between pet and owner.

The film began as an idea of Suzanne Mullett of Chocolate Box Entertainment. Jeannette Loakman and Sally Blake of Chocolate Box produced the film.

“About 10 years ago, I was being called a ‘cat lady’ — mainly out of jest but with a hint of disdain,” Mullett said. “At the time I was living with two other people and we had five cats in the household, two were mine, two were my roommate’s and one was a friend of mine’s who moved and couldn’t take her cat with her. The term initially angered me because you could tell it wasn’t a compliment. Then it started to intrigue me — about where this term came from — and I began to start seeing images and references [to] the ‘cat lady’ in the media all the time.”

  1. Se possono usufruire di spazio e coccole a sufficienza (anche se le coccole non sono mai abbastanza), dov’è il problema? Li salvano, mica li comprano! Se nessuno abbandonasse gatti (o altri) e se fossero sterilizzati loro si occuperebbero di altro.
    Le gattare sono terribili 🙂
