Hi! My phobia is a bit weird I guess. People usually fear spiders, snakes, alligators etc. But I don’t! I actually like them. But why do I have zoophobia? Because I am afraid of animals that shouldn’t be feared! I’m afraid of cats, dogs, chicks, birds, horses, sheep, cows, rabbits and other animals. Thankfully, I can eat pork, beef and other food. But I can’t stand seeing them butchered and served to me.
I don’t remember when this started coz my mom said we had a dog when I was younger. My little brothers make fun of me because I am afraid of cats, dogs, rabbits etc. I know you can say they are cute but to me? No. Especially cats, sorry cat lovers, but they look like aliens to me. I’m afraid of even looking at their creepy eyes.
When I lived with my grandmother, there was an alley I had to cross to get home. In that alley were cats. I can pass them, I know I can. I’ll just look further ahead and walk a bit faster than usual. But these cats are gangsters. Instead of them moving, I am the one who should be using the little space remaining to cross. Sigh.
But as I’ve said, I’m not afraid of spiders, crocs, snakes, worms, even centipedes. As long as they don’t bite me. I even think they’re cute. Weird.
