One of the ways that humans show affection is through kisses. Indeed we want to show our cats that we love them by kissing them.
But what if you live with a friend who wants you to stop doing it because he's a germaphobe? This is what a female cat owner has experienced with her best friend who's also her roommate.
Her male best friend has signs of autism but has yet to confirm it with a professional. Unfortunately, things worsened when the two friends over how the cat owner kisses her own pet.
Things went downhill for these roommates because the best friend, who also wants to kiss the feline, is too afraid that her saliva might mix with him when he kisses the cat.
But is it fair that the best friend acts this way when he doesn't own the cat? Who's at fault here?
The pet owner wants to know, so she consulted the peeps over at the subreddit "Am I the a**hole?" Since people with autism have brains that work differently (and the pet owner understands that) she wanted to know if she was wrong to not accommodate her best friend's wishes.
So what's Reddit's reaction on this matter? Let's find out.
It's the responsibility of the best friend to find a way to cope with the situation. He's being unreasonable according to more redditors.
The cat is hers, after all. So, she has every right to decide how she wants to show affection for her cat.
Sometimes, even the closest people in your life aren't the best roommates. When you live with someone, it's inevitable to see them in a new light.
What's more, since there's a lot of time together, the tendency is to witness the friend's bad habits and quirks. This can eventually lead to an argument.
Perhaps it's time for the original poster to move it. This might only be the way to save their friendship.
