About This Quiz

Imagine the first cat lady in all of human history. She was likely an Egyptian. She was likely a noble. The Egyptians not only domesticated cats, but they worshiped them. The first cat lady's strange behavior was probably ignored in the same way that many powerful people, especially those with the power of life and death, are overlooked.

Today, cat ladies abound. Cat ladies come in all shapes and sizes. There are crypto-cat ladies who hide their feline obsession out of fear of judgment. There are feral cat ladies who eschew society, sometimes even retreating to the fringes of civilization so they can enjoy their cat companions. Then there are the proud cat ladies who cat-ify their wardrobes, their home decor, and even their cars, with license plates reading things like "PRR FCT" or "CTS 4VR".
