5 Things to Tell a Spouse who Hates Your Pet

Meet Khan.

Khan is a mature Himalayan mix located at the Ames Animal Shelter in Iowa.  He's got beautiful eyes, a laid-back personality, and a heart condition that requires a very special home. 

Khan is also a ginormous ball of fur!  I don't think I've ever seen so much cat!  But it's mostly fluff :)  Who wouldn't want this giant hunk of man-cat love in their life?!

Well...the people who surrendered him to the shelter.  That's who.

Khan was dearly loved by a woman at one time...but unfortunately for him, the woman's husband hated Khan.  Hated.  But he tolerated him, at least until a new baby came along.  Then it was off to the shelter for Khan.  Husband's orders.

So this leads me to today's lesson:  5 Things to Tell a Spouse who Hates Your Pet.

1.  So long!
2.  Farewell!
3.  Auf wiedersehen!
4.  Goodbye!
5.  ...See ya! (I ran out of Sound of Music lyrics.)

Yes, this is tongue-in-cheek, and I am not actually suggesting that you file for divorce.  But if I was still single and dating, my motto would definitely be "Love me, love my pet."  :)  What's your opinion?

  2. Totally agree. I feel sorry for that woman's child. Growing up with a mother with no backbone and a father with no heart. Shared Khan.

  3. Husband can be so cruel. I know cause I have an ex. I kept the cats and dog.:)

  4. Poor Khan! He is such a beautiful mancat. I agree with your assessment of how a spouse who doesn't like cats should be treated. I'm thankful that my husband loves cats as much as I do.

  5. The hubby would have to go! Sharing Khan!

  6. Here's hoping Khan gets a family that loves him all the way around this time. I believe in you, big guy!

  7. Aww that's terrible that she did that, but also terrible for him to hate a cat so much that he'd actually let her give him up. Hoping he finds a wonderful and forever home soon, with someone whose not a moron. Just sayin - he looks awesome and I couldn't imagine giving up on him.

  8. Aww, sorry to hear this, but there's usually more to the story. Who knows what the problem really was. Maybe the cat was just causing too much stress for this particular family for whatever reason and it's for the best that he gets a new home. I hope he finds a better situation very soon. Beautiful cat.

  9. WOW - that's harsh! Poor kitty :( we really hope he gets a lovely home soon.

    1 - 5 are totally great and here's a couple more....

    6. There's the door, use it and leave your keys on the way out
    7. Don't like cats - I don't like you
    8. If it's you or the cat - I choose the cat
