Re: It takes a manly man to own a cat
My 6 year relationship with my ex didn't work out and I think that was partly because we were in totally different places as far as pets/animals went. He did like the cat we got (Samson) but Sammy was never allowed to sleep in our bedroom.
After we broke up, Sammy slept in my bed everynight, somenights when it was really cold, he'd sleep under the blankets with me. When I met the guy I'm with now, I was living with a friend who also had a cat. My now boyfriend would give the cats so much attention when he came over and he didn't care about Sammy sleeping in the bed with us!
I later found out that growing up, he lived with his aunty who brought stray kittens home all the time and they often had upto 11 cats living with them.
Now, we're living together with Samson, and the crazy little Meeka (who we adopted early this year) and he absolutely LOVES them! I often tell him off for giving them more attention than he gives me. Hehe.
It's so much better being in a relationship when your partner shares your love for your pets.
I also think that alot of men that don't like cats feel that way because they didn't have them growing up, and they were 'taught' by their parents not to like cats. Alot of my family disliked them until I got cats and they've realised they actually are loving and fun animals.
