As a financially and socially independent adult, you would think that no one and nothing could ever prevent you from adopting the pet you want. Apparently, that's not the case at all... We live in a world where people loooveee to get all up in your face about their beliefs, and they allow themselves to make numerous decisions based on what they think is morally wrong and unacceptable according to their own religion.
This time being gay and wanting to adopt a cat ended up being one of the things they're not okay with, they're so ignorant of what being gay means that they mirror their own ugliness into some improbable scenarios.
Unfortunately, a Twitter user named Alex Andreou had to go through this exact scenario...
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. pic.twitter.com/XDwYELdkn7— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) August 22, 2017
Yes! In this day and age, a woman refused to give her cat for adoption to a guy who just happened to be gay. She shamelessly stated that his request was against her religious beliefs and that she refuses to give her cat away to a gay person.
Even though LGBT rights are now civil mandatory rights, there are still a couple of people who disobey these rules and give such a hard time to everyone. What a shame...
Is that really true or have I just entered a parallel universe where people are caught up in a previous century?— Adrian Porter (@Seasider1877) August 22, 2017
Back in the day, homosexuality was illegal and the punishment for it was severe and unjust, they used to claim that homosexuals had "hormonal problems". They used to go as far as trying to fix a person's hormones to stop them from being gay.
I am so sorry to hear about this my dear chap. But thanks for sharing - it's an absolute eye-opener. Hope the sympathy here is some comfort— Jim Jamese (@kemptownbod) August 22, 2017
So now I'm on the bus and I'm sobbing and people are staring at me because the truth is it hurts as much as when I was 8 years old.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) August 22, 2017
Followed by much loveliness from all of you, followed by the inevitable "you made this up for attention" trolling part of the cycle.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) August 22, 2017
Andreou’s story got over 15,000 retweets and over 31,000 likes, and many of those people are not that different from the homophobic cat lady who broke Andreou's heart.
Now let's go back to the cat that needed a new home.
UPDATE: An Amazing friend who lives locally to that evil cow, is picking up the cats for me on Thursday. I am so happy.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) August 22, 2017
A friend of Andreou's is picking up the cat for him from that terrible person. He is extremely happy that he will get to live happily with his new kitty.
But wait, it doesn't end here. This story is developing on so many levels.
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— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 22 août 2017
I have another update and it's not good news. This just in, from the friend who was getting the kitties for me. pic.twitter.com/5fSW7oVqvU— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017
Come on lady, what's your deal.
THE PLOT THICKENS! I did a reverse image search. Curious to see if she responds. Quite clear there are no cats. Just a strange power-trip. pic.twitter.com/dxxuemtzxs— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017
After Alex called her out in that last text, she ended up calling him and she fessed up to all the things he accused her of. Apparently, no one is good enough for her cats.
She just called me!!! Says I'm right, she's been advertising for months and has rejected a lot of people, but only out of love for the cats.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017
She also said the reason she used a stock photo is that she doesn't have a camera and all cats look the same.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017
How can you act like you're the ultimate cat lover and then say that all cats look the same!!! RIDICULOUS!
The upshot is I am REALLY ready for some cat-love after all this BS. So, if in London and looking to rehome a cat (two even better), DM me.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017
HELLO TWITTER. HERE IS YOUR HAPPY ENDING.— Alex Andreou (@sturdyAlex) 23 août 2017

Over and out,
