This poor husband doesn’t stand a chance at changing his ‘cat collecting’ wife — 3 Comments

  1. I don’t believe she’s a hoarder either. Her home is too clean and her cats are too healthy. I’m single because I choose to spend my life with my cats. There’s no one to judge me. I just don’t go to the extremes she goes to, especially with a cat out of sight for 15 minutes or by opening can after can of food. We buy great quality dry and its supplemented by canned. The cats always have two or three flavors to choose from that they like and if they get finicky and not from illness they eventually eat it.

  2. I am wholeheartedly sick of people dictating how women should feel about having breast cancer. No other cancer attracts this kind of controlling, emotionally oppressive garbage.

    She can feel exactly what she wants about her cancer and the possibility of recurrance. Dr Phil should quit exploiting people for ratings. He should definitely butt out of this woman’s beliefs and feelings.

    No one should dictate what is rational or irrational about personal experience of and personal belief about life threatening disease, ever.

    The husband seems weak, yet enabling and I would guess he is fairly passive aggressive in his handling of his marital disatisfaction. Something is missing in the telling of this story, something significant.

    Sometimes, when women in relationships get cancer, breast cancer in particular, the partner, although concerned & caring, can harbour deep jealousy of the woman getting so much essential care and attention. This jealousy can destroy the relationship. If this jealousy or hidden emotional distress in one party is not responsibly addressed, then it causes a big rift between the two people in that relationship.

    The woman is not a hoarder, she gains emotional comfort and emotional expression from her cats. Why shouldn’t she? She is a capable cat carer.

    I think she has been worn down by hubby’s whining, hence agreeing to be on this exploitative show. He needs some help too, but isn’t exactly seeking it in an adult manner.

    People forget that a woman’s breasts are her own. Cancerous or not, she can feel whatever she wants about them.

    If hubby does not like the status quo, he needs to own some of this issue himself, instead of dumping it onto the woman. What has he omitted to bring to the relationship? What has he missed?

  3. As a child I was traumatized by my sperm donor and because I have 12 cats of my own,care for 2 feral colonies and foster for our local SPCA it does not make me a hoarder,if that was the case then we can say the same about Cat House On The Kings,I dont collect cats and the ones that are my personal cats were all rescues or were dumped on my property and my hubby knew from the get go I was this way before he married me,no way would I give up my cats,no way in hell,they are my FAMILY and they are my fur children and they are a huge part of my world.
