    Trouble is I know people just like her…

    God Bless!


  2. Abbie says:

    This is seriously the greatest thing I’ve ever been linked to on the internet, ever. I need more!!

  3. TikkTok says:

    Ahhhhh, this is a balm for the soul! :lol:

  4. Cindy says:

    Forty??? bwahahaha!

  5. LOL!!! Pouncer is a muder-lover! Oh, I love it…

    I was going to ask when you were going to post the next installment, Posky. Was getting kind of antsy without knowing what happened to catlady…and Pouncer. Of course, Pouncer too…

  6. Spectra says:

    This is blatantly histerical!

    So the procurement of forty cats drives her to drinking…this story can only get more deviant and interesting as installments roll out…I await with baited cat breath :)

  7. willkooi says:

    This is quickly becoming very depressing.

    Yet I still love it. What does that say about me?

    You are a genius, sir.

    I have no words… except to say, “please let there be more.”

  9. writingandrecovering says:

    This is hilarious and also very sad. I worry about the future of this race but I am also very excited to read more.

    • Posky says:

      Comedy and tragedy are really all there is if you want to get all classical on the subject.

      Hopefully you’ll not be disappointed.

  10. She must be best friends with the guy down the street that has 200 black cats. Literally.

    So brutal I can smell the cat pea from here.
    “Fourteen Ways of Touching the Peter”? I’m having a bit of trouble putting this quote in context…

  12. I just found this. I’m now an addict! I need more, as quickly as possible please.

    Reblogged this on alltheboysandgirls.

    OK now I begin to wonder. Is this lady a weirdo or a spaz? I know she says no, but hey, burning down the animal shelter? There is just enough truth (Johnny Carson is on TV) mixed with fiction (Wine is like supercat grod) in this tale to keep me FASCINATED. If this person was in her midtwenties in 1988, she’d be closing in on 50 now. WHERE IS SHE?

  15. Tom G. says:

    If you haven’t already done so, you need to sell the movie rights to this story. The screenplay just writes itself. I see an Oscar in your future.

  16. lunasealife says:

    No way. No way. No way!!!!!!

  17. seabeegirl says:

    This is one of the saddest, funniest, most disturbing things I’ve read in a long time. What the hell turns someone into a crazy cat person? Are they born that way, with some genetic defect, or is it some kind of unresolved Mommy issue? I am highly allergic to cats, so unless I wanted to make the ER my second home, I will never have this problem. Thank God.

    • “This is one of the saddest, funniest, most disturbing things I’ve read in a long time. ”
      this is exactly what it is (if it is really really real diary, not somebody that brilliantly wrote a disturbing thing, you know, just to disturb).

  18. maggsworld says:

    Is it contagious? Is there a”name’ for the condition ( preferrably with a latin or greek root??) Just curious…

  19. Byron says:

    I wonder what Ailurophilia would mean? Hmm.

  20. Kate says:

    I’ve waited for a whole month. Give us more! PLEASE!

  21. She doesn’t want to be known as a weirdo or a spaz….


    Brilliant, totally brilliant, now I’m waiting for her to call them her “fur-kids” – Seriously, I worry about people who refer to their cats as that…*shivers*

  22. unsungpoet says:

    Truly amazing. So bizarre it has to be real…

  23. seaofcarnage says:

    I love the last entry, it gets really shaky and obviously alcohol laden. So now she will be a homeless crazy cat lady since she is already camping in the back yard.

  24. lauriejlong says:

    This cannot be real! Posky, this woman is either fake or the most intelligent/insane person around. I am agog.
