    Add up all your YES answers to get your cat-itis
    score!

    8 or less: You have caught the bug, but are still
    relatively sane. Just give it time.

    9-16: You have a mild case of cat-itis. Seek no
    medical treatment; there is no cure. Now is the time
    to begin playing with cat toys and seeking new toys
    around the house. Work on that meow, the tone is
    slightly off.

    17-26: Your condition is severe. Cats have a firm hold
    on your life. This is the point where anything cat is
    more interesting than people. Your purr may still need
    work though.

    27+: You are now an honorary cat, you may groom
    yourself when and where you please. You have the purr
    and meow down pat. It is not unusual to find yourself
    thinking as a cat.

    Very cute. I must have missed this one when it was originally posted.

    At this point I just have a mild case of cat-itis but I think I should be an honorary cat.

    Sadly, as I have been severely allergic to kitties since age 12, I do not count as a cat addict. I love them, but must do so either from a distance, or through gloves or something else between my skin and theirs, and then I still have to wash my hands, just in case. But I do love them anyway! I currently have kitty nephews and a kitty niece, but do not live with any.

    IT'S A YES TO ALL. There are 27 in house right now, there is a permanent 4 x 4 ft cage in the up stairs front room (living room)for new arrivals. As we socialize the ferules I try and find homes. In the last 10 years we have over 300 come thro. But I have my babies. Right now (since I lost Mits) Demetri, Egypt, Lucky, Shadow and Penny are my main ones. Mom has hers, Roz, Timmy, Chessie, and Peak. The problem we have is when the two biggest boys Timmy (27lb) and Phil (30lb)want too sleep with us.
    But there is always 7-9 in the bed when we go to sleep. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
