20 People Who Didn’t Want “Those Pets in the House” but Now Can’t Spend a Day Without Them

Let’s be honest, we all know someone like that. First, they say they’ll never allow a dog in their house, and then you find them putting their doggo in the bed to make them feel cozy and warm. Or, they swear they’ll move out if a cat appears in the house, and then they brush the fur of their lovely little princess every morning. Well, pets obviously have some superpowers that make us change our minds the moment we see those cuties.

We’ve found these 20 dads and moms who once were against pets, but now can’t imagine their life without their beloved cats and dogs.


1. “My dad: ‘This dog is too small. I don’t like it. It’s not even a real dog.’ Also my dad:”




2. “My mom and the dog she didn’t want.”




3. “Boyfriend ‘didn’t want a cat’ and we were told she ‘wasn’t a lap cat’... This was 24 hours after Minnie came to her forever home.”





4. “Dad: No cats! Dad (one year later): Look, I’m teaching her high 5!”




5. “Mr. Big Strong Mechanic Dad, who didn’t want a cat, in the middle of the morning, brushing his little prince.”




6. “Ok, but he’s not allowed on the furniture.”





7. “The purest love is the one between grumpy dads and the pets they said they didn’t want.”




8. “’If that kitten steps but a TOE inside that door I’m kicking both you and him out forever.’ 2 years later....”



9. “Dad didn’t want a dog. Dad and the dog:”




10. “My dad, who didn’t want a dog”





11. “My dad didn’t want a dog... Now he tucks the dog into bed every night.”




12. “I brought home this special-needs kitty that my dad swore ‘could not stay for more than one week!’ 2 years later, he gets jealous when she lays on any lap that’s not his.”




13. “Part 2 of ‘...if you get another dog I’m moving out.’ Still here.”




14. “’I don’t like this one.’ He says as they cuddle over a peanut butter & jelly sandwich.”





15. “My dad didn’t want a dog. Now she’s his favorite little girl.”




16. “My stepdad didn’t want a cat. Safe to say Oscar changed his mind.”




17. “I didn’t want another dog. My wife did. So we compromised and got another dog.”




18. “My boyfriend didn’t want a dog, but I got a female pug puppy. This was his photo to me, letting me know he picked her up.”




19. “My father who adamantly ‘didn’t want another cat’ called my phone to ask me to turn off the bath because he was busy.”




20. “’I have no interest in pets.’ ...2 years later:”
