My ex used to say he wanted to kick my roommates cat across the room. I adored that cat like she was my own. I wish I would have broken up with him a lot sooner than I did. My husband said he wasn’t a cat person when we met but ended up adoring my cat. He cuddles her and baby talks to her And says how much he loves her. He is amazing with our puppy too. I could never not be with an animal lover.

My dad revealed to me recently that he barely speaks to his sister much nowadays because she made nasty comments about his dog – he loves his dog that much. 

As for us, we spend way more time with my family than with FI’s simply because of how welcome/loved our dogs are in their respective houses: they go to my parents’ house every single time we go there, whereas ILs won’t let our dogs in their house. Future Sister-In-Law once said that she would demand our dogs be put to sleep and take legal action to make sure it happened if they ever even growled at her child, even if her child was antagonizing or abusing them, so simple answer – she and her child are no longer welcome in our house, ever again.

Kicked at your dog? OP – that’s awful. I can understand fear of dogs. I used to be frightened when I was little following an incident involving an out of control dog (probably wasn’t bring aggressive, just exuberant), a park slide and me. Fortunately, my mum got me over it by getting our first dog but aggression to someone’s dog for no reason? Just no.

Anyone that comes into my house knows my rules, it’s my dogs’ home and they are higher on the pecking order than you. My bridesmaids will be holding my dogs they are Chihuahuas, for our wedding ceremony youngest is 6 and I have told them they cannot hit my dogs, they have a small dog at home and their mum has taught them to clip the dog on its bum if it won’t get into its bed. The bestman will be watching!

I think this pretty much sums up my feelings. At my old job, the office admin heard me talking about my dog (a rottweiler), and asked what kind of dog I had, and when I told her she says “ew, I HATE those dogs, ugh!”

I do believe I never uttered another word to her again after that day.

I get that some people are scared of dogs/cats and if they tell me that I’d happily put my cat in another room while they’re there but I can’t stand when people say ‘I’m not an animal person’ and try to shoo, move my cat with their foot or stamp on the ground to scare him away.

The few times it happened my reply was ‘well this is (insert cats name) house and he feels the same way about idiots’ walked to the door, opened it and closed it without saying another word as soon as they stepped out.

My cat is like my baby and I wouldn’t allow anyone to threaten him nevermind in his own home.

I will gladly have a friendship outside of my home with someone who is scared of dogs. I don’t lock my dogs away so people know they shouldn’t come over if they don’t like them – and I always warn people I have two big dogs at home. 

If someone DID come in to my house (and my dogs’ house) and mistreat them…oh hell no. They’d be dead to me. We have a sign hanging up that says “It’s the dogs house we just pay the mortgage” and it’s true.

ABSOLUTELY!

My dog is prettt much my baby and loving animals is a very big part of my life. I work with animals, rescues, and work in the veterinary field. There is no way I could be friends with aeon who treats animals poorly, let alone MY animals. I don’t need you in my life. 

Buh Felicia!

I would tell her to get the hell out of my house if it was only a harmless sniff and no jumping, barking, etc…. My pets are my children and I am very protective of them.  I have friends that aren’t animal people and that’s ok, but they aren’t mean or nasty about it.

I’d have screamed at her and shown her just how crazy I can get over my furry children.

I have always used animals as one of my criteria in judging people’s character. I wouldn’t hate on someone if they chose not to have pets or if they were timid around animals- but if they’re unkind to animals, they cannot IMO be a good person. If someone came into my home and kicked one of our animals, I would go as batshit crazy on them as if they’d kicked one of my kids. Better hope the door’s already open when you be leaving through it.

strawbabies:  My non animal people are respectful about my pets.  They will pet my dog a little bit if prompted, but they won’t be complete assholes about my dog either.

I feel the same way! If someone kicked at my dog (or cat), they’d be leaving my house in bite-sized pieces.
