16 Reasons You Know You're A Crazy Cat Mom

1. You have absolutely no privacy.


During the summer of 2017, I went to the local Humane Society and adopted a cute black kitten and named him Sullivan. He drives me nuts quite often, but he also brings me so much joy. Being a cat mom is something I am proud to be.

Here are 16 reasons you know you're a crazy cat mom (featuring pictures of my adorable cat, Sullivan):

1. You have absolutely no privacy.

Kaitlin Schutz

If your cat is anything like mine, your cat feels the need to be all up in your business. On the toilet? In the shower? Your cat will be watching you!

2. You have to cat-proof your home.

Kaitlin Schutz

Cats enjoy getting into everything possible. My cat particularly likes getting into my kitchen cabinets, drawers, and refrigerator. I have literally had to buy child proof latches because my cat just won't stop!

3. Leave something out?  Your cat will get into it.

Kaitlin Schutz

Your cat gets a kick out of doing this on purpose. Mine will look at me while knocking my vitamin containers off the counter. Sometimes he also has fun unraveling a whole roll of toilet paper just because he feels like it.

4. There's cat hair everywhere.

Kaitlin Schutz

Vacuums are your best friend when you are a cat mom.

5. Your significant other and your cat battle for your attention.

Kaitlin Schutz

You love both your cat and significant other..but if you give one of them too much attention, the other one will try to change that.

6. You always get woken up in the middle of the night.

Kaitlin Schutz

Its 3am. You're asleep. All is peaceful. Then out of nowhere your cat decides to run all over the place and destroy everything in its path. Awesome.

7. Your cat is always hungry.

Kaitlin Schutz

You just fed your cat an hour ago, but the cat is somehow already hungry again.

8. Your kitty gives you attitude.

Kaitlin Schutz

Your cat can literally be sweet one minute, then want to bite your finger off the next. Cats are kind of like sour patch kids: sour, then sweet...then sour again.

9. You always have entertainment.

Kaitlin Schutz

Cats do some crazy stuff and are constantly entertaining us.

10. Everyone who knows you knows you're obsessed with your cat.

Kaitlin Schutz

You're always sharing pictures and videos of your cat on social media because everything your cat does is cute.

11. Your cat is preparing you for parenthood.

Kaitlin Schutz

Cats feel like our children because they are so dependent on us and require a lot of love and attention.

12. Nothing is better than coming home from class or work and having your cat looking out the window waiting for you!

Kaitlin Schutz

It is so sweet when your cat acknowledges your presence when you come home.

13. TV time? Yes, please.

Kaitlin Schutz

Nights spent watching the latest season of "The Bachelor" with your cat are the best kinds of nights.

14. You talk to your cat like you would a person.

Kaitlin Schutz

Frustrated about your exams? Mad at your friend? Excited about some good news you just got? Confide in your kitty for all of your venting and gossiping needs!

15. You always have a nap buddy.

Kaitlin Schutz

Taking a nap with your cat after a long day is the best.

16. No matter how much your cat my get on your nerves, you are happy and proud to be their cat mom!

Kaitlin Schutz

I love my cat so much and wouldn't trade him for anything!

So yeah, I am a crazy cat mom and proud of it!

10 Photos You Have On Your Camera Roll Of Your S.O. When You've Been Dating For More Than A Year

A wide range from "Aw" to "WTF?"


My boyfriend and I just hit the year and a half mark of dating, even though it seems like we've been together forever. Over the months, we've taken many pictures together... from football games, to his track meets, to holidays. Although we may have a lot of pictures together, I definitely have a lot of candids of him in my camera roll. If you've been dating your partner for as long as I have or longer, then you'll probably notice you have these same pictures in your photos as well.

1. The awkward first photos together

We laugh at these now, especially this one. Why am I so pale compared to him? It was July! And also, we noticed not to long ago that I was sweating under my arms and his underarms were sweating on me... what a great first time meeting!

2. The ones for VSCO

Every girl who has a significant other posts them onto their VSCO. VSCO is like Instagram, but more has more aesthetically pleasing pictures and there are no "likes." The pictures that include my boyfriend on my VSCO ranges from him holding a bunny to him holding my hand while we went ice skating.

3. Them sleeping

I have so many pictures of my boyfriend sleeping (I promise it's not as weird as it sounds), I just think he's so cute when he's fast asleep while cuddling with me.

4. The embarrassing ones they want no one to see

He's going to kill me when he sees this... but we all have those embarrassing Snapchat pictures that we start to send each other because we've gotten more comfortable with one another.

5. The ones for Facebook

The good looking pictures so you can keep yours and his family updated on how you two are doing. I took my boyfriend to a baby bird meet and greet since he loves birds and has one for a pet. I posted this cute picture of him and his new friends on Facebook so my family can see our adventures together.

6. Old pictures

One of the best parts of dating someone is finally seeing their old pictures. Although, sometimes they may make you cringe... like the one I posted above of my boyfriend after prom in his sophomore year of high school.

7. Their accomplishments

My boyfriend pole vaults for his college and he's really good at it. He just went to division III nationals in March because he qualified! I'm always at his meets so I make sure to get him on video in case he or anyone wants to see. I always try to snag a picture with him too because I'm always so proud.

8. The straight up ugly ones

He sure knows how to make me laugh. And I know he's going to be mad at me for this one too but I think it's a talent that he can do that with his stomach! Sorry, Adam, I promise I still think you look good when you send me these snaps for the most part.

9. But you have the hot ones too

He may be funny and sweet, but he is pretty good looking too. I know us girls keep some attractive pictures of our S.O.'s so we can remind ourselves of what a great looking partner we have.

10. FaceTime screenshots

If you and your lover go to different colleges like my boyfriend and I do, then FaceTiming happens a lot. Sometimes I get some great screenshots, like the one above, to make fun of him later.

Poetry On Odyssey: Sometimes I Feel Like The Joker

I guess we all go a little mad sometimes...


Not everything works out the way you like, unfortunately, that's a factor of life we have all come to know. Sometimes it breaks you down inside numbing your will to push onward and it's hard. This is a poem I wrote about that feeling.

Sometimes I Feel Like The Joker

Sometimes I feel like the joker

Wide Grin

Pretending I've never been happier

But if someone were to ask why I smile this way

They'd know how I had to fake it

I'd admit I had to take everything about you that made me smile

And Rip it away from myself

Cause it's hard to go from talking about you daily

To tearing your name from my mouth

As if it was never in my vocabulary

But I guess some wounds never heal

Because part of me still Hopes you'll come back

So when my jaw hangs from the rips

And I see you and the one you told me not to worry about

Sometimes even stitches won't hold it together

Do you want to know how I got these scars?

Loving someone who didn't love me the way I did

And trying to fill that void with pieces that just don't fit

I guess sometimes I feel like the joker because

we all go a little mad sometimes
