Some people like and even love cats, which of course, is why many of them own the damn things as pets. I unapologetically hate* cats! I’m glad Nature has blessed (not cursed) me to be allergic to those accursed creatures. However, even were I not allergic to cats (a medical professional diagnosis made way back in my 20’s) I would never own a cat nor want to be around them. I simply do not like nor do I trust cats. (Didn’t I just say I hate them?)
Because I consider cats to be self-centered/selfish-as-fuck creatures, I doubt they could ever be continuously and unconditionally loyal to and tolerant of humans. Now, I didn’t need the embedded video below to show or prove any of that to me. I’ve witnessed for years the kind of cat behavior shown in the video.
I’ve had sex with people who owned a cat or two (sometimes there’d be three) in their home. Let me tell you; it’s certainly something I’d prefer not to ever do again.
AN ANECDOTE: I recall one occasion of how annoyed I got with the damn felines jumping all over the bed and being near me and my [sex] partner while I was busy “laying pipe” (i.e. fucking, having sex). UGH! On two other separate occasions, just the cat dander in the living and bed rooms of each of those cat-owning partners caused me to have sneezing fits. And on yet a fourth occasion, I suffered constant itching as I laid in bed after sex. I remember scratching my entire naked body from my bald head to my feet. I wasn’t aware until a few moments later that my [sex] partner not only owned one cat but two – and would always allow them to sit or play on the bed. Anyway, the itching got so bad that I immediately jumped out of that bed, took a long cold shower, and went home. I was still itching – and sneezing – all the way home, followed by other symptoms of allergy/hay fever such as watery and sore eyes and runny nose.
The moment I got in the door of my apartment, I immediately stripped naked. It was a summer evening so all I had on that day were a t-shirt, pair of shorts, and flip-flops which I kicked in the corner of the foyer. I ran to my bathroom, hopped in the shower, and turn on the cold water. I just stood there under the cold stream of water, propping myself up against the shower wall. That cold water immediately relieved the itching. As I began to feel better from those itching symptoms, I warmed the water just a bit and began my normal soap cleansing. When I got done with showering, I took some allergy meds, made some hot tea, grabbed a box of tissues, and chilled in my recliner until I fell asleep. It took me two days to see significant recovery from that allergy. It was that bad.
Having experiences like that in the anecdote means that I will not knowingly date nor continue to date someone who owns a cat(s). It’s either me or the cat(s). No feline creature and I can ever be in the same room or home for very long, and certainly not in the bed where I’m having sex.

* DISCLAIMER: My feelings about cats does not in any way whatsoever imply nor does it remotely suggest that I would ever harm or see harm done to a cat. Most cats are domesticated creatures. I respect their right to live except in those particular situations where they would pose a life-threatening danger either to myself or to someone else. It’s how I feel about dogs for which I have a great love.
FINAL NOTE: It should be evident that this article – like many others published on Masculine Perspectives, is one of personally expressed opinion and personal experience – mine. As such, I’d appreciate it if all the cat owners/lovers reading this article would kindly spare me their harsh criticisms. I’m aware that some readers who own and/or love cats might find the article (and video) “inaccurate” and/or offensive or even “insensitive”. Such personal thinking and sensitivities do not concern me and certainly have no influence on Masculine Perspectives.
