Let's Talk Crazy

I've heard time and time again how everything is bigger in Texas. These news bites I'm about to share, however, tell a different tale.

This first story focuses on a home about a mile from my own. In suburban Northern Virginia. It's a different genre of suburbia than my own, though, being situated in an area I fondly refer to as "The Land of the Big House" due to the size of the less-than-modest homes in the vicinity. This crazy fucking family had over 300 cats in their house. 86 of them dead.

And then I came across this tale in the news today. I thought, "Well. There ya go! Texans aren't all that after all. Their crazy lady only had 22% of the number of cats our crazy family here in Virginia had living with them! And what a wimp that Texas woman is! She lived in her yard and slept in her car while that herd of felines had run of her house. Pshaw! That hardly qualifies as crazy!"

Pshaw.
Say it out loud.
It tickles if you say it right.

When I saw the title "Lets talk crazy" I thought now she's talkin my language. I heard about a guy in N.Y.C who had a tiger and a gator in is little apartment. They found out when the animal crap (I tried to use that word that starts with the letter F that means crap but couldn't figure out how it is spelled) seeped through the floor and into the apartment below. Thanks a lot for reminding me of that.

Your post was soooo timely. I had just been irrate and complainy about our FOUR cats. I feel (slightly) more sane now.

Really and truly, this was very sad and our kitties got extra love last night.

Greetings from sub-sub-suburbia, where we have more than our share of crazy cat, dog and horse people. Makes me feel absolutely mainstream in comparison.;-) (Pet count: One psychotic dog.)

And, in a strange convergent moment, I was reading "Weird News" in a cafe yesterday, and it had an article about goat hoarding -- evidently this is a problem too, in some localities. One individual had three feet of goat feces and straw in his house, which was filled with goats.

BTW -- formal greetings and salutations! Another blogger made me aware of your blog. It's great.
