Crazy Cat People - The Guest Edition

Since I started this feature a scant three weeks ago, I've received a few photos of crazy cat things from interested contributors. So I figured, Heck! Let's have a Contributor's Edition.

So for starters we have the Crazy Cat Lady action figure. When I saw this, I didn't believe it was a real thing. Oh, but it is. It's available for $9.45 from Amazon!

Here is the product description:

"Every town has a Crazy Cat Lady. She's the one who lives in a tiny house full of feral felines. This 5-1/4" (13.3 cm) tall, hard vinyl Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure has a wild look in her eye and comes with six cats.
How many cats do you have? The Crazy Cat Lady Action figure has six to start out with, which is a little low if you ask me. She reminds me a little of an old witch that I was married to once. Warning Chocking Hazard! Contains small parts, not for children under 3."

There is nothing I can say to make that description funnier, misspelling and all. Thank you, Aaron, for this one.


What can I say about this particular crazy cat thing, other than:


This is also, unfortunately, readily available for purchase for $9.07 from Amazon. Here's more info from Amazon:


“Intensely cute…”—Publishers Weekly

“Quirky and the projects are super easy.”—
“It caught our attention.”—
The Huffington Post

Product Description

Got fur balls?

Are your favorite sweaters covered with cat hair? Do you love to make quirky and one-of-a-kind crafting projects? If so, then it’s time to throw away your lint roller and curl up with your kitty!
Crafting with Cat Hair shows readers how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts. From kitty tote bags and finger puppets to fluffy cat toys, picture frames, and more, these projects are cat-friendly, eco-friendly, and require no special equipment or training. You can make most of these projects in under an hour—with a little help, of course, from your feline friends!

So I have to admit ... I am a little intrigued with the idea of making finger puppets out of the copious craploads of fur my cats shed. Except the idea kind of makes me want to barf. Not surprisingly, the author of this book lives in Japan and has two popular cat blogs that I will not promote here because 1) They're written in Japanese and 2) CAT-FUR FINGER PUPPETS. NO.

Thank you, Katie, for that submission!

Now this ... I know for certain this exists. This is almost definitely a photo taken from Parade Magazine or something similar. Maybe the coupon catalog that comes in the mail with the Pennysaver. Some crazy cat lady somewhere is looking at that and thinking: That yellow and flowered cat statue would look so delightful in my curio cabinet.

By the way -- curio cabinets? Are for dedicated fans of certain things, or people who win lots of awards (maybe at cat shows!). I do not currently own a curio cabinet.

Now, I've considered buying a cat statue or two in my time -- and I may own a cat statue or two -- but this one ... this one is actually kind of creepy.

Thank you, Kelly, for this one!
