Animagus Aurora

From time to time, I have meltdowns based on my fear of becoming a cat lady.

Then I remember that I don’t have any cats.
And I feel better.

But then I am reminded of my rapidly approaching thirtieth birthday, coupled with my perpetual single status, and the panic starts again.

Then I get asked out by three different guys, three days in a row.
And I am comforted that there is hope for me yet.

Until I watch cat videos and realize that, although I may not own any cats, my cat-like mannerisms have already transformed me into a McGonagall-like cat lady. I know, I know. Where I went wrong was watching cat videos in the first place. But what’s done is done, and I am horrified to realize that those cat videos have infiltrated my psyche. I have become Animagus Aurora, the cat-less cat lady.


When I peruse the online dating profiles of my inevitably terrible matches, this is a remarkable likeness to my reaction:


And when those terrible matches want to take me on a date, sometimes I have to resort to playing dead:


No-date-2And on first dates, when guys try to get too friendly too soon, they may get some of this action:


But I can be all-too-easily won over with chocolate:


And once a man earns my trust (with said chocolate), I melt into a snuggly cuddle monster. “Pet me!”



The secret is out. There is no fighting it. My cat lady status is official, even sans cat ownership. In light of these evidentiary videos, I regret to inform you, dear readers, that I have clearly become…

Animagus Aurora, the cat-less cat lady

  2. I hear you about the 30 thing. As long as I could remember 30 was some mountain in the far distance you would look forward to, and is when you would already be married, have the perfect job, house, and drink your morning tea out on the porch. Now all of a sudden 30 is like a block away, time to start moving furniture in, with no husband, or perfect job, and no quiet tea drinking on the porch while reading the paper…lol You’re not alone we all feel and think the exact same way, online dating is rough I don’t even bother. Don’t worry i’m not gonna let you become a crazy cat lady lol
