We love a Crazy Cat Lady here at the Geyser of Awesome. 12CatsLady, a self-described “full-time cat mom,” lives in Japan with 12 (count them!) fluffy and playful Chinchilla Persian cats.

So how does a person come to own a dozen kitties?

“It started when we met our first cat, Yuki, on December 30, 2010. We took her home after rescuing her in the middle of the road where we found her dirty and freezing. After a while we decided to adopt one more and looked for the same breed on an adoption site — but we actually saw two chinchilla Persians and couldn’t decide between them, so we adopted them both.”

So that’s three cats. Then those cats had kittens and that’s how 3 became 12. But don’t worry, the entire feline dozen has since been spayed and neutered. Their names are Yuki, Momo, Shou, Yuri, Bruce, Blackie, Kaya, Karu, Ai, James, Tiger, and Goodie. They’re all clearly well loved and doted on and even have their own enclosed catio:

Remember when Professor McGonagall was like “Guys I’m canceling this match because Hermione just got straight-up turned into stone and there’s some chicken-eating monster wreaking havoc in Hogwarts” and Oliver “that turtleneck tho” Wood was all, “YOU CAN’T CANCEL QUIDDITCH I DON’T CARE IF LITERALLY EVERYONE DIES”? 

Oh, that Oliver. What a firecracker.

People are saying the Phantom is back. That after sixty-some years he’s come back and we need to be ready. The Phantom is our dirty secret. Everyone knows some piece of the story but the whole truth has been all but buried. Most of the people alive back then are no longer with us, or they just don’t want to remember. But everything comes back, the past is alive, all around us.
