My husband has completely lost his mind.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
My Dh does not like cats, has never liked cats. He says it's because of the shedding, and has said for years that if he has to have cats in the house that he wants them to be Sphynx.

When he finally relented the other day and said I could keep Adam, he said, "But only if I can get a Sphynx." I didn't think he was serious, since we can't afford to purchase a Sphynx kitten right now, and it's not like people are giving them away on every corner. But apparently, I was wrong!



Introducing Sprout! Dh found an ad for a Sphynx that someone wanted to rehome, and weren't trying to make $ off him as long as he got a home who would take good care of him. I think he must have had this in mind even before he agreed about Adam, but didn't want to bring it up considering he was telling me I couldn't keep Adam because we had too many cats!

I'm not quite sure what to think - I cannot believe we now own SEVEN cats. It is pretty adorable watching DH with him though. He is fawning over him more than he did our children when they were born! And now I can make him help me with litter box scooping, I suppose.

Your husband fell helplessly in love with Sprout.

Yes, Sprout is very sweet. I am just a bit unsettled about it I guess. I went through so much turmoil with DH over taking Adam in, it just kind of ticks me off that we have room for another cat if it's one that he wants! Not that I'm mad about Sprout being here, but... I don't know. I certainly can't complain about him getting one cat of his own, when I have 6! I think I'm just emotionally exhausted from the whole situation with Adam, plus starting a new job this week. I am just glad that Sprout is healthy, neutered, and current on his shots, and that my paychecks will be doubling starting my next payday! I am going to take a deep breath now and go give cuddles to all 7 of my cats.

Haha he obviously meant "we have too many cats after we get the cat that I want and haven't told you about" I used to not like Sphynxes until I finally met one and fell in love immediately

I hope everyone settles in fast!

OMG, you should've seen the kids' faces when they saw the BALD cat laying on the couch! I thought my DD's eyes were going to bug out of her head.

I can hear him already: "Well, do they have hair?"

WOW...I've never really liked hairless kitties before, but Sprout is so HANDSOME!!

I know what you mean about your husband falling for one of the animals. We have nine buns, and one of them very obviously preferred him from the start (whereas all but one of the rest of them are TOTAL Mama's Buns...the other one being my daughter's bunny), and now he fawns all over her, tries to get kisses from her every night, dotes all over her. I've never seen him like this! When I met him, he said "NO WAY" to any animals, but I wore him down and we got Sunny and Hobbes. And then, I came across our first bun, Maisie, and we both fell in love. She's so cute!

When he saw SweetPea (his bun), he automatically said yes (though he doesn't remember having said yes, conveniently enough)...and she's the only one that had that effect on him! Now they're smitten with each other, hehe!

And...I catch him holding our newest kitty, Simon, every now and then. I've convinced my husband to cross over into Animal Lover Land now, hehe! Hey, it only took a few years! LOL...

It's always so cute to hear about other people's significant others falling head-over-heels for animals, though. ESPECIALLY if they weren't "animal people" before. Hehe!

Hey, this is DH's cat - I had nothing to do with it. My oldest DS wanted to name him Skeletor!

he is handsome and it is lovely that your dh has fallen for him so much.

i do get your point about the ease with which sprout came in and the struggle you had with adam. i would have felt a bit put out about that too.

so now you have all your 7 babies i hope that life is good for all of you!

DH went to the pet store and bought cat toys today! This is totally unheard of. And not just any cat toys either - interactive cat toys! Hmmm... maybe this would be a good time to hit him up for another cat tree.

OH YES!! I sure would! I've been trying to get my DH to get one for a few years now (given that our two older kitties are four years old, lol)! He knows we should, but the money always has more important destinations. I'll bet when it's something of HIS that gets broken, it'll get more importance!! LOL!!

I had to come see what had happened when I read your title for the thread. I've never been fond of the hairless cats but he is truly a handsome looking one.

This makes me wonder if my DH is going to carry through with his threat.... to get the biggest MaineCoon Male he can find so that he can take him for a walk like a dog. hmmmmmm lol

Sprout is a handsome gentleman...he has very soulful eyes

That being said, now is the time to hit him up for another cat tree You'll need more kitty real estate with 7 in the house...
