What Does It Mean To Be A Cat Lady?

Tonight on “20/20,” Elizabeth Vargas will sit down with filmmaker Christie Callan-Jones, whose documentary “Cat Ladies” tells the stories of four cat-loving women, one of whom has 123 living in her house.

Watch the clip above to see what I mean. [via TresSugar]
