An Australian, eccentric cat lady’s home sells for over a million dollars…..
The deceased lady who owned this chaotic mess of a home was a cat lover, an “eccentric cat lady”. The inside of the home looks awful and the presenter says it is the worse home she has ever seen. The sale price of 1.18m Australian dollars is 1,027,137 US dollars.
“The proceeds are going towards charity” (let’s hope it is cat charities. It should be)
I think it is interesting because it does reflect – unfairly, I believe – the sort of lifestyle that an elderly cat lady is supposed to live. What this means is that everything is subsumed to the cause of cat welfare.
“She was the local eccentric cat lady…”
In Australia, the public profile of the stray cat is not what it once was. I suspect the stray cat was once just a stray cat. No big deal. Nowadays they are perceived as a danger to the preservation of native Australian species.
I am bit surprised she managed to go on feeding stray cats without being harangued by neighbours. Maybe she was.
The story also tells us how house prices have consistently risen in Australia. When at one time they were considered to be good value the prices are now similar to those in the West.
