One can be forgiven if graphic fantasies of Bob Barker spiraling around with a chainsaw become impossible to ignore by the two-minute mark of the trailer for Cat Ladies. The documentary by newcomer Christie Callan-Jones is currently touring the indie fest circuit to generally positive, if unsettling, reviews. However, the doc’s mission statement seems to snarf at the inevitable snark: “[Cat Ladies] unravels the real story behind the oft-ridiculed ‘cat lady’—a cultural stereotype and figure of ridicule for women of a certain age with too many furry companions.” Let us know what you think in the comments, lurking LOLcatters temporarily welcome. Full disclosure: we’ve had too much coffee already and the sunlight-on-dander-and-catpiss visual style of the film quickly sent us up one of these.
