---> '''Woundsalt''' (thinking): I am getting a 'crazy cat lady' vibe right now. Funny though, I don't see any cats. It's like poor Shy got dumped and instead of filling the void with cats, she decided to have some variety and have every type of creature BUT cat.

* ''WebAnimation/CatFace'': Cat Face is once forcibly imprisoned in a disgusting and cramped household full of cats owned by a demented cat lady who lured him in by bribing a female cat to woo him. Even when he escapes, she continues to chase him relentlessly until he locks her into a parallel dimension inhabited by his [[UncannyValley unfathomably creepy]] double, Face-cat. Face-cat floats towards her ominously, followed by the screen turning black and the Crazy Cat Lady's screams.
* Creator/WendyVainity, known for her insane CGI animations, has an obsession with cats, regularly making videos about them and owning several items of furniture featuring cats, in addition to several actual cats that she owns. She also is unmarried and lives alone and has said she prefers cats to people. Contrary to the stereotype, she appears to have a normal, friendly personality. In recent years, Wendy took this one further, changing her Youtube screen name to Mad Cat Lady, and became interested in UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, creating her own cat lady fursona Jaguar Ella (which she uses as her avatar). She is very much Louis Wain's spiritual successor albeit in animation rather than painting, as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cvmNglxt_Q this video]] aptly shows. Wendy's most famous video, and the one that got her known, is the cat video "Meow! Sad Toy Cats.wmv" or "Meow meow I am a cat."

** For that matter, Hellboy himself has a ''very'' large collection of adopted cats, and interior shots of his room is accompanied by a lot of meowing. He's a bit of a slob, but he nonetheless takes very good care of them. When Liz returns to the B.P.R.D. in the [[Film/{{Hellboy}} first film]], her first comment upon visiting HB in his room is "Look at them all!"

* In the world of the Wiki/SCPFoundation, the TailorMadePrison for [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-511 SCP-511]] requires that an old lady suffering from dementia play the role of a Crazy Cat Lady to a building full of feral cats, with said feral cats all being controlled by a cat shaped ''thing'' made from the decaying flesh of multiple dead cats. Since the family of such a woman would never let her live alone in a cat infested building[[note]]let alone the Frankensteinian-rotting-cat-zombie-thing[[/note]], the Foundation ''kidnaps'' one from a hospice or nursing home when the previous Crazy Cat Lady dies and forces her to live there.

* ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' presents a more sympathetic example with Mrs. Hasigawa, who has collected a large number of alien experiments that, due to either poor eyesight or senility, she thinks are cats. Lilo and Stitch tried to remove them, but then decided against it when they realized Ms. Hasigawa really did care for them and was taking care of them as well as anyone else could.
