Not everyone wants a pet.
It is just something that requires a lot of thinking before you make a decision. And while we may love animals, it doesn’t mean everyone is ready to sacrifice their privacy and many more things that come with it when you adopt a pet. And that is exactly why the following people didn’t want a pet at first. However, their families ended up changing their minds and they are clearly glad that they got a pet.
After all, it is always wholesome to see people accepting the fact that they’re big softies at heart. Honestly, it seems that dads are usually the ones who always say that they don’t want pets. But I think it is because they don’t think their kids will take care of the animal so they end up saying no. However, after they et a pet, it seems they want the fur baby all to themselves which is understandable.
You can see what I am talking about by scrolling and taking a look for yourself.
#1 We all have a fear of stepping on our pets.
He’s only going to be in the way, I’ll step on him.
#2 The cat looks quite comfortable in that position.
He was a firm opponent of the hairless cat but skin to skin is the best way to connect.
#3 I guess he finally said yes.
No matter how much I begged, my dad never let me have a pet when I was younger. This is him dragging my cat in a box (which he named The Kitty Express) while making train noises and laughing like a child.
#4 He changed his tone quite quickly.
My dad: ’CAN WE RETURN IT??? IF WE KEEP IT, IT CAN’T GO ON THE FURNITURE AND I WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.’ My dad, out loud, mere days later: ’Let’s move this pillow to give you more room. Are you comfy? Do you want some pets? Let’s read together.’
#5 I wonder if that is a bed or something that is not furniture.
It took 3 years to convince him since ’he’s more of a cat person.’ He finally agreed as long as the pup wasn’t allowed on the bed or any furniture. This is now what I wake up to every morning.
#6 The man clearly wants the cat to stay with him.
Dad went from: ’You’re taking him with you when you leave,’ to ’Are you really gonna take him with you?’
#7 How can someone sit like this and not love their cat.
#8 Cuddling up to your pet is one of the best feelings in the world.
‘I’m a cat person,’ he said. Now he says, ’Where’s Penny?! I need Penny! I can’t sleep without my doggy!’
#9 When you go from not wanting a cat to buying him every toy you can find.
Honestly, I can speak for an experience that seeing your family member falling in love with your pet even though they said no first is adorable. My father was similar to the men on this list. He didn’t want a cat either even though he doesn’t hate cats. But when I got a cat, he spends more time spoiling the kitty than I ever do.
#10 I love that sweater!
He never wanted an animal in the house and now they have matching sweaters!
#11 This is someone who loves his kitty.
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 insists that he doesn’t like the little dude.
#12 The love he has for the kitty is clear.
My sister told me I should post our dad on here. Our dad used to always say, ’I don’t want animals at home!’ I just received this picture. Also, he told my mom that the dogs are all his.
#13 Vets can be scary for animals.
My dad-who-did-not-want-pets comforting a scared pup on his first vet trip.
#14 When you are allergic to cats but just don’t care.
#15 Okay this is just adorable.
Dad: ’If we get a tortoise I’m not looking after it.’ Also Dad: ’Get comfy, Hector, and let me show you pictures of your brethren.’
#16 He didn’t want another dog and yet here we are.
#17 That is a beautiful painting.
Dad: ’No cats allowed in this house!’ Also dad: paints picture of our cats to hang at home…
#18 Everyone wants a hug.
’She can stay for 2 weeks,’ turned into him telling her it hurts when she doesn’t hug him on Christmas (2005)
#19 It is always so rewarding when your pet sleeps on you.
ME: ’I don’t want a new bird, they’ll only bond with you and want nothing to do with me!’
#20 That is very dangerous but also adorable.
My boyfriend who thought all cats were evil is now doing indoor rock climbing to reach her. Why? Because he wanted to kiss her forehead.
