Our cat doesn't like me
I love animals. Instead of having human children, my wife and I basically opted to have a zoo instead. We have two dogs, two cats, and four fish tanks (20g, 48g, 75g, and 90g). I spend a lot of my time in the evenings taking the dogs for walks or maintaining the fish habitats. I love it.
All of our dogs/cats are from rescues (and had decent backgrounds), and one of our cats is named Brandy. She has lived with us for 6 years now, and she totally runs the other way whenever she sees me. It has been that way from day one. I have done nothing but try to love that cat, but something about me spooks her out. I have no idea what it is. The thing is that she loves my wife--they are quite friendly. When Brandy sees me, she thinks I'm a freaking demon or something. I can't even take her to the vet, because she will literally try to claw my eyes out if I try to put her into a carrier.
I'm pretty sure Brandy is a little crazy or something. I wish someone could do some research on mental illness in felines, because she would be a good study. Something is not mentally right with that gal, because I have done nothing but try to love her. It kinda bums me out that there is so much unrealized friend potential here, but isn't that life?
