    Make me choose, you're gonna loose!

    Unbelievable!!

    Dated this guy for a while. We broke up in January. Now he's texting me and wants to get back together. His condition, I give up Cali and Diego!!! Yes, you read that correctly - he wants me to give up my cats for HIM!

    And my response to this - hit the road Jack, don't ya look back!

    There is NO WAY in this world I'd give up my cats for ANYONE!!!!! See ya.

    Exactly! Anyone who wants you to give up beloved pets is just NOT worth it!

    Good for you, Gayle. Sounds like this guy has an overinflated ego - and that's just for starters. No man would be worth giving up my furkids for - and I do mean NONE & NEVER......

    Stick to your guns. From personal experience, these people who make such demands on you are controlling and insecure.
    There will always be something they want you to change about yourself to prove that you love them. But, they are so insecure that they never stop trying to make you prove it.

    Like my Grandma used to say. "If you settle for what you've got, you deserve what you get."

    Yep, that would not even be worth considering for me. It would be like: don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya. I can't help wonder if he thinks HE is made of gold or something to be worth giving up loving animals for????

    It's not that I wouldn't give up my pets for someone, but rather the fact that if someone doesn't love or appreciate pets like I do then we just aren't compatible. Because my pets are so important to me... if they aren't important to my significant other, it would be a really rough relationship.

    Jamie is IN LOVE with my boyfriend... and he does more stuff with her than I ever did!!!!! In fact, I came home and went to let her out of her crate... not there. She's his date at work today.

    I think you made the right choice. Starting out a relationship (or a second chance at a relationship) with an ultimatum is NEVER a good sign, whether it involve pets or not.

    Anyone who married into our family knew from the outset that the dog (whichever was at my folk's house at the time) was a member of the family, and there was no questioning that. Anyone who ever suggested otherwise didn't get very in a relationship with any of us!

    You made the right choice. I honestly cannot see myself giving up my pets for someone else.

    I don't even know what to say to this. Give up your cats?!? The beautiful family members who stood by you at your lowest and highest points.....don't know you that well, but I'm thinking you're saying "NOT"!!!!

    Thanks for the support everyone. Although I was pretty certain how that would turn out.

    I am still appalled that he would even suggest such a thing. And no, he is not an animal person in the slightest. But he never truly expressed a problem with my cats, just their hair. Anyways I've not heard a peep from him since I told him "ABSOULTELY NOT" to his ridiculous suggestion that I rid myself of my cats to be with him. Thing is, now he's scuttled any attempts to "take it back" or to have any sort of relationship with me because now I don't trust him around my kitties. They are my world, they saw me thru the darkest of times, they are my true friends, family and furkids. No one messes with my kitties!!! So bye, bye dumb a$$. Not once did I have issues with his 2 skin children.

    Sheesh, I sure pick the winners!
