See you at the new I HAVE CAT!

As Animal Planet’s Must Love Cats wraps up their first season, I HAVE CAT sat down with popular host John Fulton (albeit virtually) for an exclusive interview. And yes, we asked the one question on every unmarried cat lady’s mind.

John’s not only a talented and handsome cat lover, he also has a great sense of humor (at least we hope that’s what it is).  While we wait to hear if Must Love Cats has been picked up for a second season, be sure to follow John on Twitter @johnfulron.

In your travels have you found that the crazy cat lady stereo type is a reality? Crazy cat lady? never heard the term!

Are there any stereotypes about cats you find true or untrue? A common stereotype is that a cat chooses you and I found that out to be mostly true. A lot of the stories I heard started with “so this cat just walked into my life.”

Everyone loves to say cats are “independent” and that’s not always true cause certain types of cats love to be with people and they certainly depend on their owner for love and especially food.

What about stereotypes of cat people? Of course the “crazy cat lady” is a common theme but the women I met who had a lot of cats weren’t crazy at all, they just really love animals. Also, the few places I visited that had hundreds of cats were outside and the cats were very well taken care of and they adopted out many cats.

So, is the most famous cat loving guy a free agent, or is he taken? Continue Reading »

Wine and cats, cats and wine. I often enjoy them both as I unwind after a long day at work.

"Hmmm.....is there catnip in there?!"

Kate, the lady behind the well-loved website ModernCat, must have had me in mind when she started selling these ingenious cat toys made from repurposed wine corks. Continue Reading »

I Am…Dog?

Somewhere in Beverly Hills

“I know you like cats, “said my client P___, “but you’re actually more dog-like.” She made this observation from the kitchen of a gaudy Beverly Hills mansion. We were on a commercial shoot.

“You’re so energetic and social,” she went on. I heard myself add “eager to please and A.D.H. D.” to the list.

I couldn’t argue with her, but secretly I was hurt. A dog? Something about being likened to a dog was insulting. Even coming from my dog-obsessed client.

Now you dog lovers out there hold your horses before you start sending me nasty-grams. It’s because of my cats that I’ve developed an appreciation of the animal kingdom – dogs included.

Cats and dogs are different. One is not better than the other. But let’s face it, dogs are indiscriminate and needy. Dogs are goofy, drool, and – on occasion – eat their own shit. Continue Reading »

Single White Feline

“I understand why some of my friends are single but I just don’t get why I am.”

This statement is made by Jane, an attractive, seemingly well-adjusted 29 year old Brit who is the subject of the hysterical BBC mockumentary “Single White Feline” (did anyone else know the BBC did comedy?).

It’s a statement all single women of a certain age have privately pondered at some point. In Jane’s case it quickly becomes clear what her problem is.

Watch the video and find out (yes, there’s a feline involved).

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Unexpected Valentine

Ah, it’s that time of year again. The time when restaurants overcharge love birds and single women either stay in drinking vats of wine or go out in large groups to “take back the night.”

Last year, because of my New Years resolution to meet a non-furry two-legged single straight male, I dipped my toe into the world of online dating. Specifically sites that were more geared to the pet lover.

It wasn’t promising.  Continue Reading »
