Okay, that settles it, bring on the cats!
I'm going to become a lonely cat lady that stays in her house and plays with kittens all day long. Occassionally I'll go sit outside in my rocker on my screened in porch - but only once a week. I wouldn't want the neighbors to talk about my curler-infested hair and the long nightgown that makes me look more like a hefty bag instead of the once young, vibrant youth I used to be. (no offense to those the previous described).

Yeah, getting dumped really sucks. You'd think I would be a pro at it by now. So, come on, bring the cats. I'm a pet person. I can handle the responsibility!

3. Sorry to hear you got dumped...
All I can say is not all men are assholes, as if you haven't heard that already. Keep your spirits up and love your cats. They won't dump you. :) Enjoy the freedoms of single life.

9. Over 4 years
I can't be bothered to try again. My record is such that I know that I cannot be trusted to pick a good man.

6. Well, another of my friends is getting married next year.
Crap...I'm going to be the last single one left. Oh well. Good thing I actually enjoy being alone most of the time.

7. I feel your pain
She told me that we can be friends, but I've started seeing this guy from my flag football team.

Not again! I've heard that enough times.

At least the cats still love me.

10. I hear you!
I'm only one bad relationship away from 50 cats myself, so I feel your pain!

I recommend Iams dry cat food and Fresh Step clumping litter. Also, the automatic litter boxes work pretty good.

Sorry you're going through this. Have a box of Krispy Kremes and a pot of coffee on us!

13. Do it! Cats are much more loyal!
I've been away two weeks, and now my cats are following me everywhere. Whenever I go into the bedroom, Melanie jumps on the bed and starts yelling at me to get there also so she can cuddle!
