Why does it bug me so much that my boyfriend is so overly obsessed with his cat? I love my boyfriend, and our relationship is nearly perfect. But his cat-obsessing is a turn-off. His cat doesn't even like me : O He has even said once "I love you even more than I love my cat" WELL GEE I WOULD HOPE SO, I am a human being!
How can I get over this?
Ok really. This is annoying people. Stop answering the question. It doesn't matter anymore. It's months old, and why do you think I selected a BEST ANSWER. Because I'm done with it. lol. PS: I got my boyfriend to fall in love with pet rats, like me.
The guy adores his cat, he shows his capabilities to assert his feelings. Most girls would love to be in your shoes! Especially when he says he loves you more than his cat too!
You look at that likes it's nothing, because you don't feel the way he does toward his cat. If you look from his side it's a huge compliment. He loves his cat, that part is obvious to you, he loves you more than his cat, this part you reject because to you "it's just a cat", but to him it's an animal he loves and cares a lot about.
You haven't explained why it bothers you by the way. It's something positive he has in his life, that makes him happy. You also say everything else is nearly perfect between you guys. You should ask yourself why it bothers you so much, especially when it's something positive in his life, it should make you feel good to see him happy, but instead it's upseting to you.
Are you jaelous of the attention he gives his cat, you want 100% of his attention to yourself? Or is it something else?
He;s had his cat for years, you for less time than his cat presumably. Pets are family often times. So yeah you're a human being, doesn't mean he'll put his cat's life over yours but he may have more affection for hsi pet than for you.
I wouldn't push the issue. If my cat doesn't like my girlfriend then perhaps it is aware of something I am not. Come to think of it one of my ex's my cat didn't like and it took me a little while to realize how horrible the match was.
