It's a good time to be a woman who loves cats.

It seems 2015 is, among many things, the "Cat-Lady Renaissance." Previously, the term “Cat-Lady" was a major insult; a decidedly misogynistic term to describe a presumably lonely woman with no life except cats. Nowadays, it's quite socially acceptable to live a cat lifestyle (aka dat #catlyfe), with websites, blogs, and entire branches of Instagram devoted to a feline-centric culture. To fully celebrate the notion of Cat Ladies, it is important that we pause and honor the great ladies who have lead the way.
