I’m extremely passionate about rescuing shelter animals. I currently have 3 dogs and 1 cat and really think it would be good for my kitten to have another cat companion. The problem is when I brought home the first kitten my boyfriend was so angry he almost kicked me out and now no matter how much I try to convince him he is extremely against ever getting another animal. Has anyone ever had to convince their roommate/parent/partner to get another pet? I’d appreciate any suggestions. If I can’t convince him I am probably going to have to move out
Chances are, if your boyfriend doesn’t want these animals around.. he’s probably not going to provide a very good home environment for them. I think it would be best for you to talk to him and go from there. Best of luck to you.
Do you know why he’s so adamant about not adopting any more animals? My boyfriend doesn’t want any more animals either, but he has never gone to the extreme of saying that I would have to leave. He is also vegan, so maybe that’s a difference? However, it seems he has essentially given you an ultimatum and you’ve basically already made your decision. You want a cat, he doesn’t, and you’re willing to move out to save that kitty.
