The Coffee Shop Scene
I had my second date with Alex, everything was ready, we had agreed on a time for Alex to pick me up, as in the first date he had chosen the place, this time, we agreed that I would choose, so that each of us would choose a different place and according to our inclinations, we would get to know each other's tastes and passions.
Alex is not a particularly handsome man, but he is very nice and witty, he made me laugh a lot and being both adults and with grown up children, we could have a relationship focused more on enjoying each other, and the first time he took me dancing and having a few beers, so I knew that Alex is one of those who like dancing and having a good time on weekends listening to music.
So now it was my turn to choose, being a lover of felines and coffee and I just found out through a Tiktok account that opened in Av. I was anxious to visit this place, to see its decoration, its menu and the kittens that were there, I wanted to know who the owners were, in short, I wanted to know more about the place, since I also long to have a cafe of this type, and to know that in my city there was already one, it was very exciting for me.
The day and time of the appointment arrived, Alex picked me up and I told him the address, I just told him that we would go to a café that I wanted to enjoy the tranquility of a good coffee and see what else the menu of the place offered, so we arrived and when we entered everything looked like a normal café, but there were different areas and without hesitation I went to the one with the kittens, we ordered and while we waited the kittens continued playing, I was happy watching the babies jump and others sleep, but I had not noticed a detail, the expression on Alex's face.
From one moment to the next, that man who had shown signs of being so cheerful and talkative changed, he looked annoyed and even disgusted, it was as if he was in front of a garbage can with a very bad smell, his expression was really terrible, so I had to ask what was bothering him so much, but it was not even necessary, because that man did not even let me begin to pronounce a word and immediately said:
-I am allergic to cats, what's more, they make me very disgusted, I don't want to be here cats are horrible, disgusting.
All this in a rather loud and even rude tone, I took a deep breath and answered him:
-I think I told you that I have a cat that has almost 10 years with me and is like a son to me, moreover, I do not consider it a pet, I consider it part of the family.
The man's face changed even more, he looked very angry and began to sneeze, the truth seemed like a fake sneeze, something more in his mind than something really physical and he expressed the following words:
-if we are going to have a relationship. you must choose, the cat or me, you must put that cat up for adoption now.

Since that day, my cat and I live happier than we already did, because I took a picture of Alex and put him up for adoption indicating the following:
In responsible adoption, this guy likes to dance, eats everything, likes to go out on weekends, is cheerful from time to time, bossy and allergic to cats.
Finally, this is my participation in the STB Contest 6, to which I wish to invite my dear friend @filoriologo to participate, I say goodbye, wishing already, to have in my hands another delicious cup of coffee.
