Best Cat Dad ever

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to share my joy with you!

This weekend while at Petco, I was lamenting the prices of cat trees. I really wanted to buy one but the cost was out of my reach. Suddenly, my boyfriend says "I can build that" Thus the beginning of our weekend project. We finished yesterday evening to a wonderful cat tree made of home depot wood, a carpet we bought and destroyed and hundreds of staples from a staple gun. When it was up, I was thrilled. For a person who swore they hated cats and was helping me get one because I wanted it, he is so in love with Jack now. And I love him even more for being so willing to help. What a guy!

Doesn't get any better than that! You might just have a "keeper" on your hands. And I'll echo, what about a pic?

yeah! Some men "claim" to never like cats... for some reason they are afraid to. But actions speak louder than words!

That's awesome
I went through the exact same thing- Bradley said he could make a cat tree for my kits. A month later, he's still working on finishing it (been a crazy month), but it's definitely the thought that counts!
That's so sweet that bf put that much time into something b/c it's important to you!

Well, whether he admits to liking cats or not, it sounds as if he's hooked. That's super!! And it's super that he's so willing to pitch in. Congratulations! I think you have a keeper.

My Mike is a real sweet "cat dad"-he has always been good to Tucker, he was helping when we took in Mini & had to bottle-feed her, he has been so good with helping our stray bud, Skyler, worrying about them all like I do! The only thing he doesn't help with is cleaning litterboxes! (is that a guy thing?)

YES!!!! My husband claims to "HATE" cats. They are nasty he says.

But I have caught him soooo many times in the living room watching tv and guess where the cats were????? YEAP ... in his lap getting a big ol' belly rub!!!! hehe
I walked in and said "UH HUH, caught ya" And all he had to say was "Well the cats were beggin' LOL
HE LOVES MY BABIES ... He just don't wanna admit to it.

That's great to hear....your hubby sounds so kind, just a big bear! Some men wouldn't even give cats the time of day. Yours are adorable.

My hubby used to have no feelings to cats until he meet me. Now he is the father of two cats and he is ready to sue any vet that tries to be nasty to our cats.

I agree!! My dad has always claims that he HATES cats but many times he would come into my bedroom saying "Where's that stupid cat?" then proceed to cuddle with the cat(s).

I also have caught him kneeling at the computer desk just because Rusty or Sammy would be sleeping on the computer chair and he wouldn't want to disturb them!

If I pet Rusty too long (Rusty HATES me so she'd start hissing/growling/swatting when I pet her), Dad would get mad and yell at me to leave POOR Rusty alone!! He'd act like I was abusing her!

Is that a sign of a man who hates cats? I DON'T THINK SO!
