You are about to read the diary within a book that I purchased from a clearance event for “junk books” in a nearly abandoned library. This is the story of one very strange woman’s existence in 1988 who just happens to also love cats. Please prepare yourself to enjoy the greatest used book in history.
love it! cant wait for may!!!!

It has been 8 weeks since installment 4! Where is May’s Cat Lover’s Diary post? If you don’t post we will never know the answers to such burning questions as: Who is the father of Jessica’s unborn kittens? Will the insensitivies of Cat Lover’s mother never end? Will The Middle East find peace?
I’ve been thinking about making everyone wait until their frustration reaches a fever pitch and small riots break out all across the country.
It probably won’t come to that though. Expect the next installment to be released very soon.
… Good. As long as you realize that by 8 weeks I meant 4 and that by May I actually meant June.
Post, post, post!
Incoming. Are you sure you’re ready?

Oh holy hell–this is ridiculously addicting. I love it!
I can’t believe this.
You have to.

Thanks for visiting my blog. This diary is hilarious! I can’t wait to finish reading all of them so I’m caught up :)

If I don’t get more of this soon I’m going to turn into an angry crazy person. I want to know what happens next. Will she ever find true love? Will she ever reach job satisfaction? How many cats will she acquire by the end of the year? You cannot leave these questions unanswered.
It’s really been upsetting people.
I suppose I can scan in the next chapter this week.
Please! I need more!
You are all going to regret it…. but I’ll indulge.

Please, Please, Please POST MORE ENTRIES!!!!
This whole thing makes my life seem so, so normal
Matt, from May 16 to 28 November last year you’ve promised more diary. C’mon, tell us the truth – did one of the cats scratch up the rest of the year or what? Is there actually any more? You MUST have a reason for not posting more…

I just read all parts 1-9, and I agree with the others. This is morbidly addicting. I’m so glad you came accross this, so you could share it with the world. Thanks.
I’m pleased you’re enjoy it but I can’t help but feel guilty for airing out this woman’s dirty laundry from over two decades ago.
You are also welcome/encouraged to share it with the world.
PLEASE POST MORE ENTRIES!!!!
It’s not like any of us know who this lady is! we need more!!

I should be studying, but I had to read parts 2-5. I did not start using the phrase ‘damn skippy,’ on your advice. Okay, it’s really just that nothing exciting has happened.
You’ll be glad you didn’t go through with it.
I’m just trying to keep you safe, Laurie.
How incredibly altruistic of you, Matt. I had no idea it was such a matter of safety. You may have just solved a huge dilemma for me. I hate cats, but perhaps I am not too different from the author of the Cat Lover’s Diary. God help me. LOL
Just don’t fall into any of her “life traps.”
I have a feeling you’re better than that.
You got that right, even if it’s just my hatred for cats.

I had my doubts about you calling this the “Greatest used book in history.”
Somehow it was an understatement.
Thanks for sharing it.

saw this on lolcats today and so thought of this lady…http://cheezburger.com/7981947904
Nobody needs more than six cats. It’s a fact of life.
Did you ever publish the interview with the author?
Not as of yet.
