I can't imagine being emotionally close to anyone who didn't have a broad
love for critters of all sorts, which would, of course, include my critter(s).

That was my response. It'd be like going with someone who didn't like books. Like, wat? Liking books, Rabbit and pets are all pretty high on my tick-list for potential partners.

one of my very best friends of over 10 years doesn't like books. i honestly don't understand why we get along so great and why she is so awesome and smart without reading.
but not liking pets is different, because that is actually restricting the other person's life. if she didn't allow me to read books, just because she doesn't like them, and so we could stay friends...haha well, that would be crazy.

^I have friends who don't read much, but I can't imagine like being romantically tied up with someone who didn't read. Seamus didn't and it really fucking annoyed me xD It meant I couldn't talk to him about what I was reading without feeling like he thought I was somehow acting like I was better than him or something. I dunno, it just sucked.

But yeah, pets are different. I don't have any at the minute, but I couldn't live with someone who wanted me to get rid of ones I already had if I did. If they're were like dangerously allergic then sure, but otherwise they can bugger off xD

I have a pet parrot.

Fuck no. The bird stays. Heck, Sundance could still potentially be with me when I'm 80.

I would part with my three cats if it was to save my best friend's life.  Short of that they will stay with me.

If the love of my life was allergic to cats I'd buy him shots for that.  If those did not work we'd just have to live separately.
