I know exactly how you feel, Rock&Fluff'smom! My sweetheart (fiance) is a total dog-person. He wants to have hunting dogs and breed them one day, but heaven forbid I have more than one cat! He was raised with dogs; I was raised with cats and dogs. They are both wonderful pets in their own way, but having a dog does not replace having a cat! And when I said it wasn't fair for him to breed dogs, but I couldn't breed cats, he said he'd rather not breed any animals than breed cats! (He's never lived with a cat before.)
His first response when I said I wanted a kitty was, "Cats are such pointless animals, they don't ever do anything useful!" I was like, scuse me??? And then I pointed out that cats kill rodents and bugs, etc., and he was like, "OK . . . still, it's a cat."
I took him to a cat show with me, and he sulked and whined the entire time. He's obviously going to need some work . . .
Luna is coming in a week or two, though, so hopefully she'll soften him up a bit.
I'm hoping that once he has personally owned a cat, he'll like them more.
Anyway, now that I'm done rambling, good luck with the kitty situation and try not to worry too much! Things always tend to work themselves out!
