Man slammed online after setting 'baffling' rules for his girlfriend: 'You're just jealous

A young couple is quarreling over a 14-year-old cat. A 25-year-old boyfriend went on Reddit’s “Am I The A******” forum to find out if he was wrong for demanding his girlfriend behave more calmly around his cat. “I have an elderly 14-year-old cat who has been with me his entire life. […] Our connection is really special,” he said. “When my girlfriend moved in, she wanted very much to befriend my cat but I made it clear that it is always going to be my cat and she agreed and understood what I meant”. “I told her clearly my cat does not play and never has, he just sleeps, but she insisted he might still want the option… like, okay, I guess”. “Now [...] they play a ‘stalking game’ where they hide around corners from each other [...] she literally runs over the apartment and leaps onto the couch and the cat chases”. “So I drew a hard line and basically said she can either learn to be calm and normal around pets or else stay away from the cat entirely”. Reddit was not on the boyfriend’s side at all. He was quickly declared the a******. “It sounds like these are things you don’t like. Cats need stimulation and exercise and it sounds like you never provided that,” a person wrote
