When a young woman told her boyfriend to take a hike after he complained the woman’s beloved cat was “dirty” social media has come to her defense. Using the name AITA_Shower on Reddit, the owner explained her special connection to her cat – Crumb – who has been with her since a kitten of only three-months.
AITA found the kitten when she had been abandoned and nursed the black kitten her back to health. The two had formed a very b special bond, and admitted that Crumb ran the household admittedly as most cats do in their respective homes.
According to Newsweek, the woman’s boyfriend of two months had never grown up with pets found the cat to be annoying and had never quite adjusted to the feline.
Kyle has been whining a lot about Crumb lately. I guess he walked into the my bathroom and saw Crumb rubbing his face against my electric toothbrush. (I have one that stands.) He was taken aback and expressed his disgust.AITA
And when Kyle complained, the cat mom just laughed and placed her toothbrush in one of the bathroom drawers. But the complaints against Crumb continued. Before the woman would go to sleep at night, she would kiss her cat as she tucked the sweet kitty into her cat bed, the night table or on top of his mom in bed.
Obviously no good deed towards the love of a pet is rewarded since Kyle took offense and called the indoor only cat filthy and by allowing Crumb to sleep in the bed or kissing her cat were disgusting. If she kissed her cat, particularly on his face, Kyle would not kiss the young woman. He insisted the cat be locked outside of the room or placed inside a crate.
So I said, ‘OK bye.’ Not only is Crumb 10000x more important to me, but I also laughed in Kyle’s face about never kissing/locking my cat again.AITA
But even though Crumb meant more to her obviously than Kyle, the woman still felt badly about how she treated Kyle and asked for advice from her friends and the internet. There were 17,000 upvotes supporting her decision. What do you think?
