On the verge of wanting to end her life, Cindy's best friend suggests she get a cat. 'A cat? I hate cats!' Four cats and fourteen years later, Cindy, now a blissful and obsessed cat owner and rescuer, experiences unconditional love for the first time. Then the unthinkable happens and all is lost. Can Cindy save the one who needs it most or stay in grief like a fur ball that won't let go?

You dont necessarily need to be a cat person to go but if you are, like us, you are treated to a passionate, heart felt, warm, emotional, and brilliant account of what its like to be a cat person. You dont quite appreciate the impact they have on your life until they are gone. Cindy is excellent in the show and it was hard to believe she puts herself through this ringer for every show and happy to talk afterwards. Bring tissues

Fantastic show. Comedy and great story telling. Fab cat impressions! But also really sad! I'm SO glad I saw this and really think everyone should check it out. Especially the cat lovers out there!

If you love cats, you'll love this show. If you don't love cats, you'll also love this show! It's heartwarming and hilarious!

Amazing, have seen twice and would see again, incredible experience and script, every cat is unique and you can feel the love and loss. Every emotion is shared together. Not a dry eye in the room. Have immortalised the flyer on my wall. Gave me a new perspective. Loved it

Loved this show! Beautifully performed, poignant and very funny. So many relatable themes, especially if you're a cat lover, and even if you're not. ***** (Five Stars)

As the youngest (human) son of a crazy cat lady - I instantly recognized and identified with the story and emotions of this show. Told brilliantly by the oh-so-watchable Cindy who isn't afraid to show her kookiness or bare her emotions on stage. A really quirky, engaging and moving piece. Just purrrrrr-fect!

In 2 days I saw 10 shows. It is easy to write that this was my favourite. It didn’t have the best music(it had none), lighting, staging, jokes etc but what it did have was soul, really good writing and like a finely crafted poem the chance to see the world afresh. If you want flashing lights and noise you could give this one a miss but if you want to be moved.....get yourself a ticket.

If you only see one show during Fringe, it NEEDS to be Cat Sh!t Crazy!! I could never say enough good things about Cindy’s show! The relatable life struggles before, during, and after the phases of life. As a fellow cat lady, the pertinent cat facts included enhance the experience while being informative.

Such a relatable show should be seen by all! Entertaining start to finish! But your tickets now!! Don’t miss out!!

Really loved this show. A beautiful blend of comedy, sensitivity and drama, penned and performed to perfection. The exploration of grief - on all levels - was well pitched. I laughed and cried in equal measure. Honest, caring and clever. Well worth seeing if still have time to spend at the Fringe.

Rare combination of funny, emotional and traumatic in an ultimately cathartic and uplifting (sort of) autobiographical story. Will definitely appeal to anyone with pets, but also those who don't, but have a heart. Enjoyed

Honestly, best show I've seen at Edinburgh fringe. She is kind, funny, brilliant, and overall the nicest person ever.

Not only does she educate you about cats and their struggles with horrible owners, she also entertains you about her life and her cats.

I 100% recommend this show to anyone who has the time, she is so entertaining, you'll never be bored!!

10/10 performance! A 1 woman show that educates and entertains you about the connection between cats and humans. You will leave emotional and in tears!

If you love cats like I do you will love this show. And in particular if you have been through the trauma of losing a beloved pet you will find the show healing. Very moving - a show that will stay with you.

I wasn't sure what to expect when the show starter, but Cindy makes a great interpretation and we found ourselves laughing but also almost crying at some points. A show I would recommend to any pet owner, but even those who don't have a pet will enjoy!

Joe Janes 41 days ago

You don't have to be a crazy cat person to enjoy this show, although it probably helps. This show will resonate with any pet owner - there was even a dog in the audience of our show that gave Cindy a standing ovation! It's very funny and very sweet and well executed by Cindy who is very talented. For anyone who has followed their dreams and found things didn't quite work out the way they hoped, this is also for you. Glad I saw this show, Now I really miss my cats.

Flawless from start to finish. Laughter and tears throughout. Beautiful, insightful story with a great performer and story teller. Go see it before it ends! So many impactful messages about 'the journey' which completed resonated with me.
