I’ve heard this one before, and from my own dad. He swore up and down that he didn’t want a cat, and he got pretty annoyed when us kids started feeding a stray that eventually became part of the family.

And then what did he do? Fell in love with it and went and got another one when the first cat went off to Kitty Heaven.

These guys all claimed they didn’t want cats…let’s see where they stand now on that issue.

1. A classic case…

A classic case of "boyfriend doesn’t like cats". Here he is with the new kitty on his first day. from aww

2. A big softie.

My husband is this badass tattooed musician who always hated cats. He reluctantly rescued his new best friend last year. from aww

3. Look at him now.

My boyfriend then: I don’t want any f*cking animals in the apartment. I hate cat’s. No way. My boyfriend now: carrying the cats around on his shoulders and dancing with them 😂😂😂 from dadswhodidnotwantpets

4. Changed his tune.

5. Doesn’t look like it.

6. Comfort that cat!

7. I will carry you.

Husband:I don’t want any more cats, I don’t like them. Also husband: from aww

8. Hmmmm. I don’t think so.

My boyfriend still "dislikes" my cat. from aww

9. I think he’s lying.

My husband "doesn’t like cats" and refused to let me get a kitty for the longest time. He now gives the kitten a dab of cream cheese every morning and naps with him on the couch… but maintains that he doesn’t like the little dude. from dadswhodidnotwantpets

10. Well, by the looks of it…

Boyfriend "isn’t a cat person." from aww

11. I would die for you.

My husband: “I just really don’t like cats.” My husband 2 months later: I would die for this cat from dadswhodidnotwantpets

12. Enjoy your time with that kitty!

Those photos are just delightful, aren’t they?
