A DAD was left shocked and confused by his pregnant wife’s announcement that she was worried their future child would be allergic to her cats.
The father-to-be took to Reddit to explain his concern that his wife had reacted very strongly to a simple question.
Writing in Reddit, he said: “We’ve been together four years, and she has two cats that are actually the only cats I’ve ever liked.
“She’s going to be induced in a couple of days and so that has me thinking about all the technical questions. For example: what if she’s allergic to cats?
“There are multiple people in my family who are really allergic to cats, so I wouldn’t be shocked if she was.

“My wife’s first reply was ‘Hopefully she won’t be a pussy’…. Even though we were in a good mood right before I mentioned the potential of her having that allergy.
“After that response, she got mad and was very adamant she wouldn’t get rid of the cats if the baby was allergic (which again, isn’t just a sneeze type of thing in my family- it’s pretty bad).
“I replied, ‘So what should we do if she’s allergic to cats?’ And she told me ‘you can take this baby you wanted so f****** bad and get out’. I know she said it after she got herself all worked up… but I don’t think she didn’t mean it.”
Plenty of Reddit users jumped in to say they thought it was unlikely the woman was serious.
One person said: “Dude I’m pregnant. Hormones are terrible. Our bodies are always hurting. The sound of someone breathing can tick me off.
“Some days I’m on the verge of murder (obviously in my mind) and other days I’m happy go lucky. You might’ve caught her on a bad day.”
While another said: “Are you sure she isn’t just joking?? I joke like this to my husband all the time about if our son is allergic to dogs. I obviously love my son more than anything in the world. It’s just a joke and I would never give my baby up.”
And a third said: “This was a conversation you should have had before she was 9 MONTHS PREGNANT. This is something you talk about before she is pregnant.
“Now, not a good time. Because she has a whole ass baby in her uterus. She’s probably not in the mood for a conversation about getting rid of her pets.”
