My Cats are C*ck-Blocking MePage 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
When my ex and I broke up 4 years ago she said she couldn't take her 2 cats with with her so I brought them with me to my new house without realizing how much they would impact my dating prospects. It seems like a large percentage of the woman that I have met since I started dating again are anti-cattites. Some are allergic and others are dog lovers that just hate them in principle. Some woman have asked me how old they are in hopes that they will die soon( they have been around for about 10 years and will probably be her for another 10). Am I doomed to only dating crazy cat ladys?

It's not much different than someone who won't date a single parent-especially if the kids are very young. Preferences.
I wouldn't date someone who was anti-pet, regardless of what pet that is. If someone is anti-cat or anti-dog, it makes me wonder what else don't they like. If someone has an allergy to pets/fur, that's not my problem. I'm not going to change my life to accommodate someone who may or may not be in the picture in the long haul. What sacrifices will that person make for me? Anything and everything will affect the size of the dating pool, so I wouldn't be too concerned about people who might not like your life choices.

If someone is questioning you about the age of the cats to see how long they will be around until they die, is that really the type of person you want to go on a date with? Did she actually ask about the cats' life expectancy? Things that make you go "Wow".

Max & Baloo are gorgeous.

Personally, I think people who like cats are more self-assured. Don't get me wrong...I love dogs too. But, cats require the owner to make an effort to bond, where dogs are all about pleasing their master.

Keep looking for another cat lover.

Sincerely,
A Crazy Cat Lady

I don't know if anyone takes such things seriously, but there is a study about it:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/dog-people-and-cat-people-have-different-personality-traits-study-finds/

assuming this is really happening, you may be ducking a personality conflict that pops up later.

I have two cats. When I was single and looking, I'd occasionally get contacted by men who'd tell me, "It's not that I dislike cats; I'm just allergic to them."

I can't imagine why they thought that would make any difference to me. I'd be no more apt to get rid of my cats for men with cat allergies than I would for men who disliked cats. Either way, we wouldn't be a match.

I don't care if someone doesn't like cats...I too inherited two cats from an Ex...but at this point, they've put in more time with me than any date has, so they stay! Plus, they have really bonded with me and truly became MY cats.

Not everybody likes cats. Not every woman will like you either. So what?

You only need one.

CBG, I suggest those cats have more loyalty than most humans so I vote for the cats every time. I have birds, dogs, rabbits, and a cat, and I have and have always had allergies to animals. Thankfully, medications have improved over the past fifty-plus years. There are also other types of interventions available these days. For example, I'm highly allergic to one of the dogs (the one basically attached to me all the time :-). I get a special shampoo for him from the vet. It works wonders. When I took in the cat, knowing that cats are typically a huge trigger for me, I consulted with the vet right away and she gave a couple of recommendations. One of them was to bathe her weekly. Fortunately, I didn't have to go down that road because it turns out she doesn't trigger my allergies. I know yours are older and would likely not take kindly to bathing.
If someone expressed concern to me that they are allergic to animals in my household, I'd genuinely help them explore solutions. If someone asked the age of my animals to calculate how much time they had left, and they were even remotely serious, I'd recognize our values didn't mesh at all and part ways. As I implied with the comment about loyalty, I'm sure the cats will stay by your side. The humans may or may not- they can be a fickle species :-).

I have cats and dogs in my home. I'm sure its probably cost me at least a couple possible relationships. But, I'm ok with that. I would never be able to be serious with someone that has an issue with pets.

When I was newly separated, 5 years ago, I went on a couple nice dates with a guy. I mentioned in texting one day that I was going to look at a dog I was considering adopting. He told me that he didn't think I should get a dog, he didn't like shedding and pet hair getting on things. So, here I had a man, who I didn't even know his last name, giving me his opinion on my possible pet ownership. Was I supposed to care about his opintion? I never saw him again. ;) About 2 years down the road I got a message from him asking how I was. I replied with a photo of my two very large, light colored, long haired dogs and reminded him that he didn't think I should get a dog, so I got 2!

Thanks everybody! I just met a woman on another website(one I had almost given up on because of recent changes there). This woman is very cool. She has a dog but she loves cats too.She even said her dog loves cats(he has lived with them before).

I agree....there are "normal" ladies who love cats. Find one.

I'd love to date a man who had cats. Tells me something "good" about his character.

If someone doesn't like your pets, they can literally go Fvck themselves. My dog hasn't been healthy last year into this one. After 15-1/2 years of devotion, and being my constant companion and travel buddy, men are on hold. She really needs me now. What's better to put your energy into than your pets?

Thanks NY58,sorry to hear your doggy's not well,hope she will be ok.I know how hard it is. One of my cats almost died around 3 years ago and I had to make a "go fund me" page for him to raise money for medical expenses.

Thanks, CB. It's heartbreaking to watch people euthanize their pet's from lack of funds. Good for you for reaching out to raise money. I've helped people over the years, even though I've been stressed out with my own bills. I figure a few dollars goes a long way if everyone contributes. I flew with my dog to TX several years ago for a preventative back surgery, then she had surgery on her neck this year.

I hope your kitty is okay now. I know a lot about dog food and a little about cat food, but I can tell you, don't feed hard food (kibble). It's really unhealthy and causes many medical problems, like UTIs, crystals/stones. Then vets want to prescribe their unhealthy prescription food, that's also unhealthy and overpriced. Better stores sell premade raw, you feed it raw. That's what I feed my dog. For canned, don't buy supermarket food. Its all bad. Try Ziwipeak and Nature's Variety Instinct line. Chewy has good prices. Don't buy foods with tuna, it's loaded with mercury: https://www.chewy.com/instinct-by-natures-variety-original/dp/34728
