Not that uncommon....

Not if you have nine houses!

Not if you are an old lady in a not so big Brazilian city. Or even in a big city, why not? Or even not being old.....

Well.....I myself had lots of cats, there was a time when they were six together.

So you were the town's cat lady?

Sorry.....I failed to be a lady....for innate reasons....you know.....

About those ladies, I'm talking about dozens of cats.

I see. In the US the cat lady is the person who owns a lot of cats, usually a hoarder too. For some reason a cat lady doesn't have to be a woman (welcome to english my friend). A good place to start might be a book called "Guys can be cat ladies too", which I'm pretty sure must be a comedy book.

Happy International Cat Day (08/08 – I guess the date looks like little paws). Here's a cute bonus "Cat Lady" boy story for you to read:

You're not kidding! We're in SJC (SP) now; the lady next door in the big house rescues cats and dogs. Feeding time is LOUD. Five or six in a small apartment, even, does not raise eyebrows. And there are tiny pet stores and vets EVERYWHERE. Brazil has pet stores like Paris has corner bakeries (or even more).
