A crazy cat lady can be a woman who owns more cats than municipal code allows. However, an oft-unheard of definition of 'crazy cat lady' is the very inverse of the original: a man who claims women are crazy cat ladies as a defense mechanism when in reality he himself owns more cats than municipal code allows, but hides this fact from friends, family, and co-workers in order to avoid the stereotypical norms that those who own multiple cats are solitary, human females. As a result, while 'lady' often denotes a female human, in this case it represents a closeted male 'cat-lover'. Signs someone is such a closeted, male, cat-lover include calling other humans in their lives 'cat ladies', 'crazy cat ladies', and using obtuse logic to prove others fit this mold - when in fact, it is the person calling out cat lovers, who loves cats most of all and is in fact a 'crazy cat lady'.
Human one: You're a crazy cat lady!

Human two: Since you are calling ME a crazy cat lady, I can deduce that in fact it is YOU who are a crazy cat lady - despite the fact that your are male. It is okay, crazy cat lady/man, I accept you.
