Here's The Grauniad's take on crazy cat ladies:

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... lurophiles

It goes through the usual suspects such as animal hording disorder and toxoplasma gondii, before concluding that the culprit is the patriarchy: "...the concept of the crazy cat lady tells us more about societal perceptions of women than anything else. It has long been a pejorative term and a device for transferring shame and judgment on women who challenged traditional roles, or were hard to domesticate and keep in line."

I'm going to so miss that newspaper when it goes bust. The trouble is, I refuse to give them the price of a cup of coffee on account of the bastards disabling my account.
