Hi, everyone how are you? I am in a really tough situation and I really need some advise. I have two female cats whom are sisters. Najwa was born 6-6-06 and Layla 10-28-06. They are very differant cats. Layla is very shy and scared (a huge baby) and Najwa is more the trouble maker. I have had both since they were onlt a few weeks old so were all 3 very attached to one another. I love them so much you all! The problem is my husband. He got them for me when we first got married and he always loved them. Now we have a baby and everything and he just seems to hate them. He keeps saying cats are for kids and we have a family blah, blah, blah. I tell him people of all ages have animals and you do not get rid of your pets (family) just like that. I planned to always have them. For awhile now he has been being mean to them. He treats them like they are humans. If they do something he does not like he feels he must punish them. He hits the, very hard, kicks them, throws them. Najwa gets over it and does not care but Layla is scared to death always of him. My husband and I fight ALL THE TIME bc of this. I do not like this and it makes me so mad. I love animals and I hate that he treats them this way. Sometimes I feel he is jealous bc I love them so much. He will never even spend any money on them bc he says they are just animals. He buys crappy meow mix food from the Dollar Store. He also has never got them any shots or fixed. My cats have never been around anyone but us, never been outside. So I think they would act insane around others. Even when someone knocks Najwa growls and Layla hides. I do not know what to do. I want them with me bc I love them so much. They have been the only friends I have had and always loved me so much. But then on the other hand my love sees they deserve better. What do you all think I should do, please any tips?
