Do you have a co-dependent relationship with your cats? One definition of co-dependency is that it “often involves placing a lower priority on one’s own needs, while being excessively preoccupied with the needs of others.” If I substitute the words “Allegra and Ruby” for the word “others” in this definition, then I’m guilty. Of course, there are far worse definitions of co-dependency, many of which involve the word “dysfunctional,” but we won’t go there.
In Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much, Allia Zobel Nolan helps readers identify the warning signs of co-dependency (does your significant other insist that you’re kissing your cats more than you’re kissing him or her? Do you strain your eyes because your cat is sitting on your glasses and you don’t have the heart to move her?) so they can change their behavior and get their lives back – should they really want to.
I’d venture to say that most of you will recognize yourself somewhere in this little volume (I sure did…,) and you will ultimately be able to answer the question: When is enough enough? I suspect that for many of us, that answer may be “never!”
Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much is available from Amazon* and everywhere books are sold.
