It can be stressful trying to convince dads to get a pet for the family. Some don’t want anything to do with furry creatures until they’ve experienced them.
If you need to make your father change his mind about getting an animal, have him sample one for a bit. He’ll more than likely fall in love, like these fathers.
“We Have Too Many Pets! No More!”
“No more” quickly transformed into a cuddling session with the new cat. It looks like this house likes pets with brown fur, because the cat matches the dog, who seems deprived of attention.
“My Husband Who Didn’t Want A Cat Loves Our Cat So Much”
You can tell he loves this cat deeply by the way he stares into its eyes. The kitty looks like it enjoys this loving from his dad more than anything else.
“From Calling Him ‘The Big Black Thing’ To ‘I Can’t Get Up Yet, He’s Using My Arm As A Pillow!'”
That’s how things go when you get a pet that you think you won’t like. They grow on you in a matter of days, and now they’re using your arm as a pillow.
“My Dad Says ‘Animals Are For Eating, Not For Pets'”
This cat certainly changed this father’s mind in a hurry. Hopefully, he doesn’t eat cat, but there would be no way in the world he wants to eat this one.
“We Don’t Need A Third Dog”
Who says you don’t need three dogs walking around the house? If the third one is as cute as this little puppy, then you have no choice but to get it.
“Don’t You Dare Get A Cat, I Hate Cats”
Napping with the new cat doesn’t help your case against owning one. How can you hate something that small and curious? This dad found out the hard way that you can’t.
“‘The Cat Is Always Such A Pest!’ —My Husband”
Would you want to snuggle up with a pest? The answer to that is more than likely no, but why is this dad so obsessed with this cat? He must love it now.
“If You Get A New Puppy, I Won’t Want Anything To Do With It”
The irony of his statement is hilarious. It looks like these two are the best of pals now, and it probably didn’t take very long. That sleeping face is one of the cutest.
“He’s Not Allowed In The House And Definitely Not On The Sofa!”
Would you look at that? It looks like this man didn’t follow through with his demands now that the little pooch is right there on the sofa with him. The beauty of pets.
From “I Just Don’t Know” To Being A Cat Dad
When someone is on the fence about a pet, you might as well just get it. The moment the little thing comes into the home, the person won’t mind anymore.
“My Boyfriend Who ‘Doesn’t Like Rodents’ Bonding With My Two Ferrets”
How can you not want to play with little ferrets like this? If they have proper home training, hanging out with ferrets is a must, even if you don’t like rodents (which ferrets aren’t, by the way).
He Has Allergies And Didn’t Want This Cat…
The allergies didn’t keep this man from bonding with this cat. Here he is looking under the fridge, fishing for the cat toys. If that doesn’t say “love,” then I don’t know what does.
“He Keeps Threatening To ‘Put Him Back In The Alley Where He Found Him.'”
People yell hollow threats all the time. I think that the ones revolving around pets are normally the kind that never come to fruition. How could anyone threaten a precious cat like this?
“Keep That Mongrel Away From Me!”
Get him away from you? Why would you ever want that when you can have him under your legs as you enjoy watching TV? That sounds like a pretty relaxing day.
“My Dad Rocking The Cat Who Wasn’t Allowed In ‘His Chair'”
Hey, after looking at a small cat for longer than 15 seconds, you can’t help but feel a certain way. You might want to start allowing it places you didn’t want it before.
“A Perfect Example Of How Opinions Can Change—Today, He’s A Cat Dad!”
I’m confused by the line on the back of that cat. Is it a leash? If so, this man totally changed his ways if he’s out there walking his cat.
“He Said Small Dogs Were Useless Literally 30 Minutes Before This Photo”
Small dogs are useless? I beg to differ! Smaller pooches make solid companions, and they aren’t much of a threat to little kids and strangers. Plus, they make you smile.
“I Think Dads Say They Don’t Want Pets Because They Can’t Handle The Bond”
How’s this for a Kodak moment? Sharing a pillow with the dog in the middle of the floor is priceless, especially after this dad said he didn’t want any animals in the house.
“I Didn’t Want A Cat”
Letting a kitten sit in your hood as you slice vegetables is special. This is something you don’t see every day and shows how much this guy already loves the little one.
“Dad: ‘Don’t Get A Pig!’ And Here’s Dad And The Pig…”
Having a pig for a pet sounds exciting and exotic. You don’t often come across folks who have pigs as their primary pet, so maybe that explains why he changed his mind.
“Pupdate: My Dad Now Swaddles/Cuddles Louie (The Dog) When There’s A Thunderstorm”
Look at the smile the dog has and look at how wholesome the dad looks. This is a picture-perfect moment, and I’m glad this father loosened up to the pet.
“He Used To Hate Cats. Now He ‘Doesn’t Want To Mistreat Them By Getting Up.'”
Yeah, the last thing you want to do is mistreat a cat when they’re sleeping by getting up. You have to ride out the nap and hope they wake up soon.
He Didn’t Want The Dog Around Him Because It Was “Too Hot”
When his daughter asked the dog to come to her, he told her it was okay. Do you see how quickly someone will change for the love of a pet?
“There’s No Way We’re Getting Another Dog Again!’”
Hug him tight because you never know if you’ll get another one! The more dogs that come home, the less time you have to give to the one you thought would be the only one.
Dad: “If We Get A Tortoise I’m Not Looking After It”
This man is doing more than looking after this tortoise: he’s showing it pictures of other tortoises! It looks like one is eating a stack of pancakes and the other is trying to get something.
“I Would Never Sleep With A Dog, I Wouldn’t Even Acknowledge Him”
The lie detector determined that was a lie! You said you wouldn’t acknowledge the dog, but this picture shows evidence to the contrary. You’re also sleeping with it, which is another thing you said you wouldn’t do!
“I Don’t Want Any Extra Responsibilities…”
Sure, you don’t have to want any extra responsibilities, but you won’t be able to help yourself once the dog comes home. Look at the smile on this little guy’s face!
“We’re Not Keeping Her, I’m Taking Her To The Pound Tomorrow”
Wow, offering to take the pet to the pound is a huge threat. By the looks of it, though, he’s more likely to take the pup to the vet for a checkup. He should think before he speaks next time.
“I Hate Cats. If You Get A Cat, I’m Not Going To Visit”
And here he is, visiting and napping with the precious cat. A pet can turn the toughest tough guy into an animal-loving son of a gun quicker than Steph Curry pulls up for a three-point shot.
“We Really Don’t Need Another One”
I’m guessing this dad said they don’t need another one at least twice. Now, he’s sitting down with two cats in his lap and another waiting for a turn; this is golden.
