Confining a Cat
So I was talking to my latest winner of a boyfriend. After my conversation with him yesterday, this is pretty much my view of him so be warned. We got onto the topic of moving in. I told him it was too soon and that I had 8 months left on my lease and that we'd talk about it more seriously when it is up.
Well, he has two large breed dogs and has them confined to crates while he is at work or sleeping (16-18 hours a day!). One of his dogs isn't doing well. She is very old and has lots of health issues. In a nutshell, he mentioned that he will be keeping her crate where it is when she passes. I naturally asked why and he said, in all seriousness, that Oz could stay in the crate whenever his dog was confined to the crate. His logic is that it would not be fair to his dog to have Oz always have the run of the house. The dog would always be jealous.
I told him I wasn't going to confine my cat and that confining to a crate was cruel. He then suggested the bathroom or bedroom. Again, I told him I wasn't confining my cat period.
It's ridiculous. Time to start looking for a new boyfriend. He seems like he has a thing against cats because they are "mean and evil" creatures.
