People who hate cats -- why?Page 11 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
I'm very allergic but I love cats. A couple of the posts were disturbing. I've worked in animal rescue and a lot of people won't take black cats. They are often hurt.

Yep yep and Halloween is a BAD day for them. Because of this me and my wife ONLY took black cats into our home( i took one i rescued on my block int my home in april).

But we helped found and fund a successful animal rescue group and shelter that takes in cats and does TNR with others. The black ones are the hardest to get rid of. The area is mostly Jewish and Russian and the Jews tend to fear the black cats. I see them actually crossing the street when one walks in front of them.

To us they were our little mini panthers!

My cat's kind of an a-hole, so I can understand why.

Joe, back in the 70's I had a few old partners who started in the late 40's early 50's that if a black cat crossed the road they would draw an x on the windshield, stopped and went another way. They believed in some bad mojo if you kept going.

Ones who are jealous of pets have unhealthy, over neediness issues. Is one, supposed to get jealous over ones interest in football games or doing their nails?/Its insane.If not jealous of the cat, it will be something, else..ALWAYS.. All that is in a home, needs tending and attention. If a pet brings one joy, be glad joy is not needed by violence or something. Be an adult and take care of your needs, not overdependent, toxic, draining and selfish. People need their own space in a relationship, not unhealthy codependence. Being jealous of anything is a serious ted flag. Hope this helps.

Cats are cool. On the other hand, I hate the yappy purse dogs with their stupid outfits.

Like dogs, cats have very poor boundaries. They lick my feet. Not only does this make me want to snap, but it's unwanted touching. If a human did this and it wasn't consentual, he/she would end up with a criminal record.

^ Sigh... Silly lady. Of course not ALL cats lick my feet. I'm rarely around cats. Truth be told, I can only recall one for certain - it had evidently moved on to my deck, and would not go away.
