  1. I am a kinda Christian, and sort of have those beliefs.

    One thing is for sure, the Australian Cat Ladies are closer to my values than the AC League. No-one voted the AC League to represent ME, You are a bunch of rightwing nutters who hide behind the cloak of Christianity and The Bible to push an agenda of segregation hate oppression and right wing economic and social policies. (in my humble opinion,)

    I am totally offended that you set yourself up as a Xtian lobby group without consulting the wide variety of Xtians in Australia first. If you had asked me, I would have told you to take your dangerous fundamentalist rubbish, get on your bike and get out of here.

    As a Xtian, I am glad to be a member of the Australian Cat Ladies. They will do a damn side more good for this country then you have or ever will.

    Now go away and stop trolling this site.

    This is indeed fantastic, it would be wonderful if more people would support your efforts and spread the word.

    I’d love to see an American Cat Ladies support page also.

  3. *sigh* In light of the reading of recent comments by fan/s of the former holders of this domain, I will add the following:
    I am a Christian who takes my beliefs at least somewhat seriously. I do not like it when religion gets into politics, because it’s usually fundamental, self-righteous people who appoint themselves to “think of the children”, etc. I fully support the innovative and somewhat mischievous appropriation of this domain. Now go play with a kitty, and/or a video game. Purrrrr.

    This party understands the ides the majority of Australians have. Gay cats should be aloud to marry, disgusting that they can’t. They shouldn’t be forced to give up their kittens to some stranger for a profit they don’t even see, and god-dammit they deserve them tummy rubs, we work them so hard, they have to pose for all those photos! They drag home all those dead birds for us THEY DESERVE THEM DAMMIT!!!!! ACL 2013!!!

    How are you a navy seal with the power of the Marines on your side??? 2 branches of the US military….so…I cry bullcrap sir!!

  6. Pussy Galore says:

    This page is awesome! You have officially made my week.

    I have no beef with people who adhere to any religion/system of belief provided they allow others to live their lives unhindered. Our seven cats agree…

  7. Cats! I love cats. Also, marriage equality. Also, tummy rubs. Woo! Hard work? Well, it seems my cats have managed to manipulate into doing all the hard work for them, so I suppose there’s nothing to be said about that. *peers at her cats*

  8. Pauljmsn says:

    I’m a Yank lad (“Lad”, he says. Ha!) and am fond of ferrets, which have been described as a cross between 2-year-olds and kittens. Close enough. And I LOVE this! More power to ya, rainbow cat ladies!

  9. lexicolaa says:

    This is wonderful! I and my family are all cat-aholics and look forward to readingthis most caring and informative sight. Keep up the good work

  10. Tyler says:

    While cats are okay in my book, I long for the day when humans will be able to overcome its’ self-imposed barriers and finally unite equally. Humanity needs to refocus itself and plan for leaving the cradle.

  11. Kevin and Kate says:

    Excellent stuff. Given the anti cat sentiment expressed by the cat hating vocal minority the group of of cat lovers is a welcome relief. So to all congratulations, and keep up the great work. Please remember though, cats do need your help; cats must be sterilised to prevent unwanted litters …

  12. I love your show, Austin Citty Limits! I look forward to some acoustical purring and special guests, such as Tim the Caterwauling Tom, Hot Tuna, Kitty Whip, Big Head Cat and Big Dead Fish. You’ve got serious culture!

  13. ksull8 says:

    I’m the proud owner of a pair of gay bearded dragons, though I love cats too. Also, can you add a page where we can post pictures of our pets?

  14. Denise says:

    Former catholic (who is proud to say I’m totally and completely recovered) and life time cat lover here from the lovely southwest part of the US. This is a hoot, even more fun than getting brushed! Don’t forget to spay/neuter!

  15. Holly Guinan says:

    Well done, Cat Ladies of Australia! Proud to consider myself a trans-oceanic supporter of mischievous cat-holics everywhere! (I also support the right to arm bears – our ursine brothers need a take-over, too! Mee-Wow!) And while I’m luvin’ all things Aussie, let me just plug Sea-Eagles live streaming eaglecam out of the BirdsAustralia Discovery Center (aka The “Disco”), Homebush, Sydney. Every cat loves ‘um some seagles!

  16. Bastet says:

    Mmmmmeeeow! (We love everybodeh.)
    Meow-meow-meow! (We even love narrow-minded nutters who profess to speak for their God.)
    Puurrrrrrh-puuuurrrhh! (If you don’t love someone just because they’re Gay, you maybe need to re-read the teachings of the prophet Jesus. He loved everybody. He also loved cats.)

  17. Jesus H. Christ says:

    Jesus here, I thought now would be appropriate to tell you seeing as you have gone done figured it out yourselves is I am not the one to be worshipped.
    It is actually the Cats and other animals That are to be worshiped, oh and p.s I’m gay.

  18. Deb says:

    Though not Australian, my cats & I are indeed ladies. We’d love to be your American friends. Please consider us for membership. XOXO, Lil Girl, Mae West & Deb

  19. Woof for Equality! says:

    We’re neither Catholic nor cat-holic but I do love kitties and would have them as pets if we weren’t so allergic. As dog-owning, marriage-equality-supporting people, we love what you’ve done with this place ;->

  20. Rob Brighton says:

    This is the best beard pull I have heard of in a long long time, I predict your website will go viral in a heartbeat, get google adds on here urgently to fund the growth of this site!

  21. Deirdre says:

    You are wonderful, thanks for leaving the former holders of this site high and dry; they can go knockin’ on heavens door, nut I know St. Peter isn’t going to answer that one, hell wouldn’t either.

  22. What should we expect from out (cat) leaders? Anyways, nice job! You should change the name to ‘Cat Lovers’, not ‘Cat Ladies’ so all cat lovers will feel welcome!

  23. Pete says:


    I’ll bet you ladies don’t have the b@lls to publish this.

    Is sodomy healthy?

    i.e: Is it healthy (for gay people, no doubt) to shove things up their respective @sses, into their faeces with all of the blood etc?

    C’mon girls – the people in the office want to see if you have the r0cks to publish this health question. Let’s see you stand your ground on this one.

    Over to you.



    • Fishface says:

      @ Pete: Because you care about the health of gay people?

      Not sure what your point is here – do you think preventing gay people from getting married means they won’t do that icky gay sex? How’s that working out for you?

      I’m prepared to bet that whatever you do in your bedroom I’d find pretty disgusting. Which is why I prefer not to think about it, and focus on teh adorable fluffeh kittehs instead! Why not do the same?

      • I’m with you Fishface…
        Really Pete, Unprotected sex of any kind is unhealthy and what precisely makes you think that sodomy is the Domain of homosexuals. I believe it is also practiced amongst heterosexual couples. Needless to say its not something you can hold against female same sex partners. I am sure you could ask some of the catholic clergy who have been caught out sodomising young boys the same question I’m sure they would be happy to answer.

    • Is skateboarding or bungee jumping healthy? Who gives a shit, Pete? Adults are allowed to accept risks associated with their behaviour.
      I gotta tell ya, Petey, as a straight guy, I’m not the least bit concerned about where other guys stick their genitalia. I’m always intrigued by the fact that those guys who claim to be the most anti-gay seem obsessed with what other guys do with their penises. Why do you care so much, Pete?

    • Hey Pete,
      Did you know that sodomy also refers to blowjobs? You don’t like blowjobs, Pete? I assume you’re either an unmarried virgin or a married guy who has occasional, unenthusiastic, missionary position sex with his wife only when you’re trying to conceive a child. Otherwise, it’s hell for you, kiddo!
      Sorry your sex life sucks (haha…bad choice of words) for you but that doesn’t mean you have to make everyone else’s sex crappy.

    • Alex says:


      I am a hetero sexual woman, and I have had things up my arse. I am perfectly fine and healthy with absolutely no arse issues whatsoever..

      But I thank you for your concern over my butt, and the butts of others. You may now rest easy knowing our arses are A-okay.

      Yet, should you find you are still worried and thinking about other peoples arses, you could always find out for yourself and put something up yours, and . Like most new things, it may feel a little strange and uncomfortable at first, but keep going and I am sure you will learn to love it.

  24. Annie says:

    Thank you, there are a great many Christians who used to shake their fists in rage when the Christian Lobby were interviewed, me included. Now, I will just laugh and imagine kitties instead.

  25. Pangur says:

    I have asked the CIC (Cat in chief) of my house about this web site and she has given permission to have her paw of approval added to this site

  26. Lola says:

    I love animals of all persuasions and believe they should be celebrated for their unique qualities as well as their sameness. I don’t really like the politics of the red crested galah or the small minded big eared budgie (smuggler) on this issue of animal equality – they both seem interested in feathering their own nests and not representing the flock! Come on Aussie come on – let’s embrace nature and our natural wildlife in all it’s beautiful forms! Love Aussie Cat Ladies…

  27. mary buckley says:

    love this page – can I join your League. I am qualified on basis of being doting cat owner, and ex catholic. Despite handicap of being force fed religion in childhood, I am now tolerant and open to diversity of human belief systems = in summary, dont step on my toes and I wont scratch your leg. Kind of prefer cats to people.
