A New Generation Of "Crazy Cat Ladies"

Owning a cat (even multiple cats) is no longer viewed as, well, crazy, thanks to the young hipsters who are adopting cats as a display of independence, rather than, say,  spinsterhood. In case you were wondering how this trend fits within current culture, check out this funny and insightful article in yesterday's Times to see where you fit into this updated stereotype.

Dubbed "the perfect met for the so-called millennial", at least according to this article written by a 26 year old new cat parent, because they jump on your lap and keep you company while you're getting your Netflix fix. But this positive trend also works for the benefit of the kitties: The popularity of cats on the Internet, particularly social media, coupled with the millennials' constant use of said social media, have gotten (probably) thousands of homeless kittens and cats adopted in recent years.

Now, who out there doesn't mind being called a crazy cat lady?

We think that social media has some positives and helping find homes for animals in shelters has to be one of the best things about it. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Happy April Fools Day.
Best wishes Molly
