7 Dead Giveaways Your Friend Is A Crazy Cat Lady

The Cat Lady is a strange specimen. They can rarely be seen in public because most of their time is spent in bed watching cat videos. Most cat ladies are in disguise as normal people but don't be fooled, here are some quick ways to check to see if your friend or loved one is a closeted crazy cat lady.

1. Watch them when they're on their phones.

Cat ladies don't use their phones for anything other than to text the two or three people that they talk to and to watch cat videos. If their Facebook posts consist of more than two cat videos and cat memes and maybe one or two other fluffy animals, you've got yourself a cat lady.

2. Check how many lint rollers they have.

Most cat ladies have more than two lint rollers just lying around the house and sometimes even have a lint roller to go somewhere in their purse. It may seem innocent but if their pants look unusually lint-rolled and crisp when they leave their house, they definitely are a cat lady.

3. Check how they refer to their cat.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F13%2F6362502434315824201992873208_ccl%25202.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=777&h=c7bdf4bd7dd837071a401408bfad4c0c175a88d6f5d07724b674808fefcec3fa&size=980x&c=2885868079 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F13%252F6362502434315824201992873208_ccl%2525202.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D777%26h%3Dc7bdf4bd7dd837071a401408bfad4c0c175a88d6f5d07724b674808fefcec3fa%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2885868079%22%7D" expand=1]

If they are using the cat's name or any other baby name to refer to them rather than "my cat" in coversation, you, my friend, are in the presence of a cat lady. If you're not into that, run.

4. Do they get offended when you say dogs are better?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F13%2F636250244462301678-117939331_ccl%25204.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=483&h=107628f31b3daec85ab90f41f2cf210ee152118070f18ffb3a75d5c7a95bb0f8&size=980x&c=3973581235 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F13%252F636250244462301678-117939331_ccl%2525204.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D483%26h%3D107628f31b3daec85ab90f41f2cf210ee152118070f18ffb3a75d5c7a95bb0f8%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3973581235%22%7D" expand=1]

This is a tricky one because some cat ladies will keep it calm and say "Oh I love all animals but I love cats the most." Check for facial expressions, if they look genuinely annoyed, there's no denying that they are 100% a cat lady.

5. Will having a cat make a man more attractive on their Tinder profile?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F13%2F636250245722553320613423936_ccl%25205.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=871&h=74e1d11ff4e326e2e571723d5ca0a2d81af21e57775ad33ceab220aaaac223ad&size=980x&c=4258630150 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F13%252F636250245722553320613423936_ccl%2525205.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D871%26h%3D74e1d11ff4e326e2e571723d5ca0a2d81af21e57775ad33ceab220aaaac223ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4258630150%22%7D" expand=1]

This is a very real thing that cat women and dog women do. They will swipe right on every cat man they see.

6. Do they cry and go through old pictures of their cat when they're separated for long periods of time?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F13%2F636250247328710069-307957543_ccl%25206.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=156&h=52afd076075006bab53f87e5aec7d2d5cb0bd9a28f31e40cf911bf627a25c2ad&size=980x&c=3308292938 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F13%252F636250247328710069-307957543_ccl%2525206.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D156%26h%3D52afd076075006bab53f87e5aec7d2d5cb0bd9a28f31e40cf911bf627a25c2ad%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3308292938%22%7D" expand=1]

This may seem like it's normal at first because most pet owners are very attached to their pets but if this is happening every day, even at 20 minute separation periods, there's a problem.

7. Do they own a lot of cat shirts?

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F03%2F13%2F6362502477157104411210332930_ccl%25207.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=741&h=ab54941358690e52924a47d40138afe7d89b57182ac5c1553df54b2648a41747&size=980x&c=99679161 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F03%252F13%252F6362502477157104411210332930_ccl%2525207.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D741%26h%3Dab54941358690e52924a47d40138afe7d89b57182ac5c1553df54b2648a41747%26size%3D980x%26c%3D99679161%22%7D" expand=1]

Having more than one cat shirt is also a dead giveaway that they are a crazy cat lady.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
