50 People Who Didn’t Want A Cat And Now Love Them So Much

Some people just aren’t cat people and that’s fine, but I choose to believe these people are in deep, deep denial. How could you not love a sweet little kitten with its tiny nose and ears and little toe beans!? And the purring, come on. But, I digress. These are just a few people who insisted they did not like cats and well, you’ll see how that turned out.

1. “No. I don’t want to hold a kitten.”
