Gil bonded with the cats straight away, especially Rosie

We kind of adopted them together (he didn't really have a say in the matter ), and I wouldn't say he loved them right away, but he does now - particularly Smudge. He often thinks about them, which is nice - things like "the kitties would love to play with that" or while we're away "I wonder how they're doing", or things like that.
I'm not currently involved with anyone, but I would never get into a relationship with a guy who did not like cats, especially my cats....and animals in general actually.
A few years ago I tried those online dating sites. I made sure that I mentioned that I had cats and that it was important to me that the man I become involved with likes cats.
A guy contacted me and we talked and hit it off. He told me that he would be interested in pursuing an in person meeting. He then added that he doesn't like cats, so I'd have to get rid of them if we were to start dating.
I told him bluntly that when given a choice, my cats win every time! And told him that he had some nerve to even bother contacting me to begin with knowing that I had cats. He told me that he really liked my profile and thought I would be more willing to compromise if the right guy came along.
I told him that the word "compromise" isn't in my vocabulary when it comes to my cats.
