I have grown up loving animals and have always wanted a pet. Whenever I come across a man who has a pet and is obviously completely obsessed with him/her...well, to see a man telling his kitty he loves them, or playing with their dog in a park, or taking their horse for a run, it just melts my heart. Taking care of an animal shows that a man is capable of truly and unconditionally loving another creature, not to mention the responsiblities and sacrifices in taking care of an animal.
This is one of the reasons my husband I got so much closer after we adopted Ash the bratty tabby into our house. At first, he was terrified of the little furball.
Then he started to get used to having him around.
Now he can't (and won't) sleep unless Ash is on his tummy.
Now the two of them gang-up on Mommy!
Anyone else have a weakness for a man who loves animals?
