I know men who have cats, trust me, they are not gay. It's easier to have a cat for a pet than a dog. You can leave town for a few days, you don't have to walk them, apartments allow them more than dogs. There are a lot of reasons why people have cats instead of dogs, sexual orientation, is not one of them.

We adopted 4 tiny kittens this past October. Three were female and one was a little male. He and DH have become inseparable - he loves DH and follows him everywhere, hanging on him like a tick. To be funny, DH started calling him "B*ll S**k", saying "We guys gotta stick together". B/S is going to be neutered, so DH is going to have to choose another name for him.

Let's not be obtuse/PC. An enormous percentage of gay men own cats as opposed to straight men, so it's easy to see where nyanna is coming from.

Of course you don't have to be gay to own cats - when I was child I used to spend the summers in my relatives' farm and they had cats, but in the context of a single man living in an apartment I can see how she might have though that, even if it's doesn't have to be the case.

This is one of the most ridiculous posts I have ever seen on C-D. And I have seen some pretty darn bizarre ones...

Of course owning a Cat ( or liking Cats) has nothing to do with your sexual orientation. Some people love Dogs, some people love Cats, Cats are more independent and I would argue that if anything are more less "soft" than Dogs ( try to dye a cat,put him/her in ridiculous outfits and treat him/her like a prized poodle and see how many digits are left on your hand or whether your eyeballs survive the experience !!) .

Some people's lifestyles suit having Felines better than Canines. Period.

The idea that the choice of pet is a sign of your sexuality is so bizarre it makes the mind boggle.


I am sure there are plenty of Gay men out there with Norwegian Elk Hounds ,Doberman and Wolf Hounds and a lot of very straight blokes with Persians or Siamese Cats. I saw plenty of Gay couples in SF on my last visit walking not only Dogs but pretty "butch" dogs too.

The world is not quite as simplistic as the OP obviously wishes it would be. Gay people are represented across all walks of life, lifestyles, professions, age and tastes.


This generalisation about Gay people would be hilarious if it wasn't so pathetic and a little sad. And quite frankly ignorant and stupid too. A choice of pet has more to do with personality and lifestyle than it has to do with sexual orientation.


I love Cats and Dogs and must thus be a flaming Bi-Sexual I gather ?!

Dogs have owners, Cats have staff as the saying go...

Does that mean that a straight woman cannot have a dog?

I could see if he had a unicorn, now that may be questionable!

What do you know, there is such a thing as a stupid question.

I love cats and dogs! Does that mean I'm a latent bi-sexual? What about horses? I love them too? What does it all mean?!

Let's not be stereotypical. What is your valid source for this assumption?

I've seen no one here trying to be "PC", but rather stating personal experiences that don't support the prejudice.

Ah, one can always hope that someone wouldn't find it necessary to insert the stupidly obvious and obviously stupid remark...but hopes are always dashed.
