Now, more than ever before, it’s amazing to be a cat lady. There’s even a day dedicated to it: National Cat Lady Day, a new holiday created by the organizers of CatCon.
“The notion of the cat lady as a dowdy spinster has shifted dramatically over the past few years,” Susan Michals, creator of the all-things-cat convention, said in a press release. “Now it’s chic to be a cat lady!”
Indeed. To celebrate, here are nine reasons why being a cat lady is the best.
1. Cat Ladies Lead The Fashion World
Grace Coddington is the long-time creative director-at-large of American Vogue magazine and a certified cat lady.
2. Cat Ladies Join A Long Line Of Chic Women
Carole Lombard brought class to everything, including being a stylish woman with a cat.
3. Cat Ladies Can Also Have Less Fashiony Downtime With A Non-Judgemental Friend
“Nature videos and chill.”
4. Cat Ladies Have An Adventure Partner
Us at the top of #rockofcashel (note that it is not so sunny, and all layers available have been bundled on. That's the thing about traveling in #ireland – you gotta be ready with those layers). SO beautiful. I'd wanted to get up here for years, but I never thought when I finally did, I'd be bringing a #cat up with me 😺. #catschlepping #leashcat #adventurecat #adventurekitty #cloudbusting #travelgoals #catlovers #catladylife #medievalarchitecture #cashel #bigsky #celticcross #graveyard #travelcat #bestmeow #felinefriday #catsofireland #catsofworld #wanderingwhiskers #windyplace #nerdstyle #pettravel
