This is the story of Mitch and Pamela who made a recent appearance on the Dr. Phil show. I wanted to write on it because this woman and her love of her 15 cats is WAY over the top. The article itself will be short since the YouTube video tells the story best.
Pamela has already admitted “the cats do overtake the marriage. They require a lot of care.” I don’t believe her poor husband stands a chance at changing his ‘cat collecting’ wife.
Please watch the video below. It’s very interesting. Pamela and Mitch appear to be good people who love each other even though the cats tend to take priority in the marriage. The home appears clean and the cats look healthy.
Pamela doesn’t call herself a cat hoarder and prefers to be called a ‘cat collector’. Her life revolves around her cats and Pamela states she’d rather go through having breast cancer than to lose one of her cats.
When Pamela feeds her cats and if they don’t like the food she puts out, she’ll start opening can after can until they do eat. If a cat is missing from her sight for 15 minutes she sends Mitch to look for the cat.
Going out to have a bit of fun also has its limits. Pamela is ready to drag Mitch back home in an hour, although they do try to go out once a week to help their marriage.
OK readers. Put on your ‘psychology hats’ and sound off your opinion in the comment section below. Is Pamela mentally ill or just a very obsessed cat owner? Poor Mitch…
Comment from Michael (Admin):
It must put a strain on the marriage (just watched the video: the marriage is strained). You have to be either/or/and (a) crazy about your wife (b) love cats (c) very laid back and tolerant/chilled out to put up with it (he is uptight! 🙂 ). You wonder whether she should be married to a man. She is married to her furbabies. I don’t see a great future for this couple.
