I would get a new best friend. Also, I would never marry anyone whohated cats or animals in general. I think it's a basic compatibility issue that will never resolve.

I have no idea what to do in this type of situation... None of my friends 'get' the 'cat thing' so I rarely bring the cats up in convo... and if I do they either pretend to care or I see that they are uninterested so I change the subject.
Her email hurt me, & I am not in the situation.
Maybe try to talk it out with her? Explain to her that they are all you have & you are all they have, and how they are essintially your children, family. Tell her that you where deeply hurt by her comments, and you forgot how much she dislikes cats. Tell her that you respect her decision to not like cats, & she will need to respect your decision to love cats. Does she have kids? If so ask her how she would feel if you called her child ugly.
I am so sorry.
I think you need some
I would never talk to my friends that way, and my friends would never talk to me that way. Respect is the key to friendship.
What makes her such a good friend that you're willing to overlook her lack of compassion?
