A man has been turned down for adopting a cat because he is gay

Joseph McCormick August 23, 2017

This photo taken on July 15, 2017 shows a cat peeking out from inside a cylinder-shaped space for cats at the 'Catpuchino Cafe' in Yangon.

A woman has apparently refused to give a cat which “desperately needed rehoming” to a man because he is gay.

Alex Andreou shared screenshots on Twitter of a text conversation he had with the woman who refused to give him the cat for religious objections to his “lifestyle”.

He said he had travelled two hours to get the cat from the woman but that she refused to hand it over.

“So, I just travelled two hours to adopt a cat that desperately needed rehoming and was turned down for being gay. WTF IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE,” he wrote.

In the conversation, the woman asks him: “So how comes you’re single, are you gay?”

He responds: “Good guess”, to which she says: “People normally mention grown up kids and so on that’s why I thought you maybe gay”.

When he asks “Is it an issue?” she responds: “I am religious so I strongly disagree with the life style. I am sorry if I hurt your feelings.”

Andreou responds: “Darling, I’ve been beaten and called a faggot since I was 8. My feelings are quite robust. And, yes, sorry is precisely what you are”.

The conversation apparently ends when she asks him: “Are you not afraid of going to hell when you die?”

But Andreou later shared an update saying he was getting the cat as a friend who lived locally to the woman was going to go and pick up the cat.

He wrote: “An Amazing friend who lives locally to that evil cow, is picking up the cats for me on Thursday. I am so happy.”

Later adding: “I may then have to festoon the cats in Rainbow Flags and send her photos. Is there a co that makes pink litter? Pride cat bowls? I NEED GEAR”.

Cat tweet

Earlier this year a polar bear died of a broken heart after its same-sex partner was moved away.

Szenja, who was left alone at SeaWorld San Diego after her companion Snowflake was moved to Pittsburgh Zoo, died of a broken heart, animals rights charity Peta has claimed.

Szenja had lived with Snowflake for almost all of her 21 years.
