“Touch me everything, but not my cat.” This is how we could describe this story of modern love which features a woman, her cat and her boyfriend. The 24-year-old told it on Reddit, a social news and forum site, talking about what happened when she and her 30-year-old partner decided to move in together.
In fact, the problems arose because the man never loved Milie, his girlfriend’s cat. In fact, she had also previously said that when they moved in together she would have to get rid of them. But when the woman said she would never get rid of the animal, he gave in and said he would “get over” her. However, later things got worse by breaking the relationship between the two.
“I have a cat, Millie, and it’s my baby girl I’ve had since she was a puppy. When my boyfriend and I started dating, he joked that if we ever decided to move in together, he would have to “get rid of that cat,” which I rejected at the time. When he came to my house, he ignored Millie, making jokes about how presumptuous cats are, about how much of a dog person he is. Again, I ignored it because he was never really hostile towards him. I thought it was just a preference. When we started taking the idea of living together seriously, he asked me if I would consider giving it away, because he didn’t like the idea of living with a cat. I almost laughed before I realized he meant it. I told him that under no circumstances would I get rid of my cat. I felt guilty for not being willing to compromise, but she actually took it well and reassured me that if she was that important to me, she would get over it. ‘
But behind the words there were very different intentions: one night, when he didn’t notice that she was nearby, he found him whispering cruel insults to Millie, telling her that it was “fucking useless” in a tone that the woman has. described as’ cold and hostile ‘:’ He terrified me, because I have never heard him speak so viciously. He looked like a different person. It was so cold and hostile that I panicked. ‘
That moment led to an important argument between the couple, with the woman telling her boyfriend to “leave his apartment right away.”
Only after days the woman decided to see her partner again: the two talked and he said that he was just playing with the cat and that he always felt second to him. “I explained to him how much it means to me and I apologized for making him feel like this wasn’t his home. I think I may have overreacted, but I’m not sure. He is my boyfriend and she is something I keep refusing to compromise on. But I don’t think I misjudged his tone either, “said the woman who also asked Reddit patrons for a comment.
The post attracted nearly 3,000 comments and most of them agreed: «Download it. Now, before you come home one day and find sweet Millie who is gone and he doesn’t tell you where she is “writes one user, while another adds:” The way a person talks about an animal or treat an animal is a good indication of what kind of person he is. ‘ Another wrote: “I could never trust to leave him alone with her. How do I know it won’t poison her? Could he physically injure her or dump her on the side of the road? ‘
