I am a cat LOVER from way back. I was one of those girls who had cat pictures all over my bedroom and friends always gave me cat calendars and cards at Christmas. I don’t think there’s been more than a couple of months (maybe even only weeks) in my life where I haven’t had at least one cat companion.
My hubby knew my love of animals (particularly) cats when he met me. He too adores animals. However, the month before our wedding he got tested to see if he had allergies that were the cause of a life long skin condition. Many people told him it was all the milk he drunk – he LOVES his Coffee Chill – so he wanted this proved wrong. Turns out he’s allergic to dust (and ended up marrying an undomestic goddess), grass and animal fur. When he told me, I looked at him and said, well, nice knowing you! Since then he’s known his place and been SUCH a hero about putting up with animal fur in his life.
So much so that our current cat (SIMBA) spends most of his day sleeping on our bed, frequently on hubby’s side. But I guess he loves us both enough to put up with it.
In my defence I DO try to keep the cat to at least my side of the bed and I wash and change the sheets frequently. See I’m not totally horrible!! And I KNOW that doona cover and pillowcases are GHASTLY but do you know how hard it is to find something that both men AND women will like atm? I bought them from Ikea a while back and in the end, I thought it safer to go with something we BOTH didn’t like – LOL!!
