Dear Christopher Cat
I am a 40-something single woman with five cats. Most men I date react as though this qualifies me as an old-maid, a kook or worse.
I notice from your Web site that you are one of five cats. Please tell me what to say to the next gentleman friend who objects to my cats.
You don’t need advice on what to say to these men. You need to find a better breed of man.
Start by looking in places cat lovers frequent. For instance, you might volunteer at your local humane society or cat rescue group.
Or join a feral cat organization and learn to trap free-roaming cats for sterilization and vaccination.
Visit a cat show. If one of your cats has both looks and personality, enter him in the Household Pet category.
A high-tech way to meet other cat lovers is Internet dating. Find Web sites for pet lovers by searching “pet and dating.”
In no time at all, you’ll find a good man who is also a cat lover.
