If you want to understand dad’s logic, you have to try hard because their logic is one heck of a tricky business. Ask them anything and they are likely to find a way to go about it. But if you want to have a pet, we are sorry but your dad won’t allow it. Or maybe they want it secretly but they are simply asking you not to bring it. 

We have compiled a list of pictures that shows dads who didn’t want to have a pet but ended up loving these furry babies more than anything else. 

P.S. This post is also a little shoutout to all these dads. 




Dad: We Are Not Feeding That Feral Cat. Also Dad: I Set Up A Heated Cat House In The Backyard And Put A Camera So We Can Make Sure She’s Home Safe Every Night

“We Can’t Keep It” – My Dad 10 Months Ago

No Matter How Much I Begged, My Dad Never Let Me Have A Pet When I Was Younger. This Is Him Dragging My Cat In A Box (Which He Named The “Kitty Express”) While Making Train Noises And Laughing Like A Child

No Dogs!

Caught Him Hugging The Giant Dog He Didn’t Want, He Was Also Singing The Dog His Own Personal Song  

He Never Wanted A Dog. Four Days After They Met, She Helped Him To Recover From A Stroke

Dad Went From “You’re Taking Him With You When You Leave.” To “Are You Really Gonna Take Him With You??”

“He’s Only Going To Be In The Way, I’ll Step On Him”

Dad: “No Animal Allowed In This House!”. Also Dad:

He’s Never Been A Dog Person. Ever. And Now My Dad Takes Yuki Sailing And Talks To Her Wherever They Go

“Shall we garden today? Ooh let’s dig a hole. Where shall we dig it? Over there! That’s good digging. Would you like a carrot? Some water? Shall we get the paper and do the crossword?”.

My Dad (79) Went From “I Don’t Want That Dang Cat” To Carrying Her To “Her Room” For Bed Each Night

He Was A Firm Opponent Of The Hairless Cat But Skin To Skin Is The Best Way To Connect

If Your Dad Didn’t Say “We Are Not Keeping The Cat” And Then Bond With Her And Love Her The Most Is He Even Your Dad?

It Took 3 Years To Convince Him Since “He’s More Of A Cat Person.” He Finally Agreed As Long As The Pup Wasn’t Allowed On The Bed Or Furniture. This Is Now What I Wake Up To Every Morning

“That Brown Dog” Became “Brown Dog” Became “Mr. Brown” Became “Doc Brown Wants To Stay With Me When You Move Out.” Doc Brown Did Move Out With Us, This Is Their First Reunion After About 6 Months

Dad – “I Don’t Want A Dog!” Also Dad – “Gaston Need Is Own Bed And Night Table”

My Grumpy Dad When He Holds Up The Cat So She Can Look Out The Window

My Dad: I Don’t Want Dogs In This House. Also My Dad:

I Wasn’t Keen On Getting Cats ( I Can’t Even Pet Them), I Now Watch Videos For Cats With Luna At Least Once A Day

My Dad Said No Dogs Ever Again After Our Last One Passed Several Years Ago. My Mom Has Always Wanted A Dachshund, But They Both Agreed To Wait Until Retirement. But He Recently Realized That “Life Is Too Short Not To Try To Make Her Smile Every Day”

My Father, Who Used To Hate Cats, And Linus, My Cat

My Dad: Can We Return It??? If We Keep It, It Can’t Go On The Furniture And I Want Nothing To Do With It. My Dad, Out Loud, More Days Later: “Let’s Move This Pillow To Give You More Room. Are You Comfy? Do You Want Some Pets? Let’s Read Together”

My Dad Dressed “The Dog He Didn’t Want” In My Childhood Dress He Kept For His First Grand Daughter

Hubs Was Never A Cat Person. Now He Tells Me How They Individually Like To Be Pet, And They All Behave And Don’t Fight When Sitting By Daddy. I Don’t Know Who Trained Who

My Dad Didn’t Want A Dog. I Watched Him Cry At The Shelter When This Guy Sat On His Lap. I Knew It Was All Over. Welcome Home Beni

Dad Didn’t Want A Dog. Dad And The Dog:

In 7 Months We’ve Progressed From “We’re Not Getting A Dog. Period.” To This

My Dad Who “Didn’t Want A Cat” Showing Lucas Every Item Of The Weekly Shop Because “He Wants To See What We’ve Got”

My Husband, The Life Long Cat Hater. He Found Crookshanks Abandoned On A Job And Offered Some Token Resistance When I Wanted To Bring Him Home. Six Months In And While They’ve Been Tight Since Day 1, He Often Remarks That Crook Is The Weirdest Dog He’s Ever Had

My Dad Complains That Remus Lays In His Lap Anytime He Sits Down. This Is The Smile I Got After Saying How Jealous I Am

Apparently, My Dad Now Plays Guitar Every Night For The Cats He Never Wanted To Adopt

My Husband “Doesn’t Like Cats” And Refused To Let Me Get A Kitty For The Longest Time. He Now Gives The Kitten A Dab Of Cream Cheese Every Morning And Naps With Him On The Couch… But Maintains That He Doesn’t Like The Little Dude

Update, Over A Year After Dad Finally Said Ok To Our (His) Cat, Here Is Big Mechanic Dad Enjoying The Fall Fire With His Little Boy

My Dad Who Did Not Want Pets Comforting A Scared Pup On His First Vet Trip

Dad: I Don’t Want A Pet, So Stop Pestering Me About It. Also Dad: Please Go On Vacation So I Can Hang Out With My Grandson Again
