But my boyfriend is, so what is a girl to do? I'm not technically allergic to cats, but I'm totally tempted to lie about that if it will get me out of spending time with my boyfriend's cat. Obviously, I do spend a lot of time at his house, and he really loves his cat. This means that she will sit between us when we are watching TV together, and she even has the audacity to jump on the table when we are eating. He is the type of person that loves his animal way too much, which is probably how I would act if it was my dog, but definitely not with a cat.
The only thing that I can do is when I am laying on the couch reading a book, I put in my iPod so that I can listen to music while I read, just so that I don't have to listen to this cat lick itself and cough up hair balls. This is one small thing that saves me from going over the edge because I do want to be supportive and try to love or even like his cat a fraction of how much he does. I'm hanging by a thread!
