This FML is the kind that requires a follow up to be fully understood. Did your girlfriend break up with you because of the cat?? Did the cat kill her!? What happened??

Cats aren't exactly returnable goods. Never, ever get an animal if you can't keep it forever. And definitely do not get animals as surprise gifts.

Most breeders have a sort of return policy on animals. That way if it doesn't fit they rehome instead of the animal being dumped at the pound.

I agree, #67. Shitty people, or just severely misinformed. Adopt your pets. Most breeders aren't likely to euthanize their profits.

Please understand that not everyone can adopt due to cat allergies and thus really only have Siberian breeders to turn to as they do not produce as much of the protein that causes an allergic reaction in humans. I love cats, but I'm terribly allergic. I tried holding cats I thought to adopt. Didn't work. Itchy and sneezing. I now live happily with two Siberians allergy-free. Please do not be so quick to judge.

Really? Good breeders in Australia are responsible and will take back their animals at any time in that animal's life. Much better option than Craig's list or the local pet shop. Some people wish to get a young animal for many reasons. I personally right now own 3 rescued dogs and 4 rescued cats and all of them came with behaviours that need ongoing intervention and work. It's not for all. Doesn't make the person shitty.

We're all curious as to the situation, and as they say, curiosity killed the cat. Pretty soon OP will have no cat and no girlfriend.

It is. My ex got us a cat, we broke up and kept the kitty. My ex may have got her, but the kitty is my baby.

At least you ended up with a pussy in the end. Still, maybe it was for the best if she left you just because you brought a cat into the house.

A pet is a huge responsibility. That's a lot to put on someone. If she didn't specifically tell you she wanted a cat, YDI.

I don't understand why people continually give pets as presents to their significant other. Pets are a huge responsibility, almost like children. I would never surprise my boyfriend with a child, that just sounds crazy!! "Surprise! I stopped taking birth control and now I'm pregnant! Aren't you happy sweetie?" So why do people think it's okay to do with pets?? If she wanted a cat, she could have adopted one on her own.

I don't know. I personally would love it if someone got me a kitten. This is the kind of gift, that if you're sure someone wants it, can be really meaningful. If it's totally out of the blue, then it could cause resentment because it is a lot of responsibility to thrust on someone, but I think there are valid reasons for surprising someone with a pet.

I have to agree, if you are 100% certain the person wants the animal then it can be a great gift. I bought my bf a purebred German Shepherd puppy because he was looking for one his parents said they would buy it for him, but they refused to look at breeders and he wanted a purebred one. So I dropped the cash he didn't have to get him his dream dog. still has the puppy and we are still together. However, if you are just buying someone an animal because "it's cute" or they mentioned 1 t
