I have a very strong and handicapping phobia to live in society. Many people have phobias. Usually, people have darkness phobia, spider phobia or snakes. These are not really annoying phobias because you can always use a light for darkness phobic, and it is rare to find snakes and spiders in people’s place.
A phobia is defined by the disproportionate and irrational fear of something specific.
And for me these are the cats. It called “Ailurophobia” and many people do not believe me or minimize my fear. Unfortunately, this is a real phobia, before I came to a new place I do not know, I always ask if there is a cat. Before I babysit, I ask parents if they have a cat. My boyfriend has a cat and I can never go to his home. When I arrive you always have to lock the cat and people are sad hearing him meow and I do not feel comfortable.
If I see a cat in the street, I can not breathe, I do not even cry because I am in total panic and I am looking for a very serious way to avoid him and go as far as possible.
My cousin has a cat named Tatanne and has just had three little kittens.
My cousin sends me photos every day of the little cats saying “Hi Julie” hoping that I will love them one day and that it will await me but unfortunately a phobia is not a choice.
After seeing this picture, you will be like “it’s so cute, how can she do?”, but I guess some of you have phobias too and you can imagine whatever it is …
