Boyfriend won't let me get a cat? Why is this all over the internet? What is his problem?

Me and him have been together for 4 years. His mom is a huge cat lover, a lover of all animals. I am not entirely sure what his issue is, considering the fact that he just owned a cat and love it, and was raised around cats his childhood. (his dog did too) The big issue for me is the word ''let''. Its like im a child and he's a parent. He also STRONGLY REFUSES to get a cat. I already have cheap and safe way to adopt one. His own mother offered to give us the cat that we were living with prior who loves us and our dog. If I try to talk with him about getting a cat, he just has some weird outburst to change the subject or to interrupt me and tell me to never talk about it again. Its as if we are deciding on having 3 kids, and eloping! its just letting me get the cat. Is there some weird dramatic reason why men hate cats? He turns into a drama queen over everything but this is what gave him his crown. He has not given a legit reason for why not.. what do I do? And whats his deal?
