Tamar began I Have Cat three years ago as a way to chronicle her life as a 30-something NYC singleton looking for love despite the complication of owning cat (s). Guys came and went but the cat(s) remained and with them spurred new thinking about life, food, and even men of the two-legged variety.
"I Have Cat” reads like "Sex and the Kitty” and has brought together thousands of like-minded people from around the globe. The name of her blog was a response to the way people spoke of single women of a certain age with cat(s). In hushed tones and never in mixed company -- "Oh, did you hear? She has shingles,” "She had gastric bypass, " "She has … cats!”
Tamar refuses to fall prey to the crazy cat lady stereotype and wears her cat-hair-free black clothing as a badge of honor (though she admits to investing a small fortune in lint rollers). She strongly believes that being social and stylish need not be mutually exclusive from cat ownership.
