I have a new friend and we’ve been having a great time in our respective group getting to know each other and finding a lot of common interests.
One night we all left the bar and decided we wanted to keep on drinking so he said he lived nearby and we should all come over for continued drinks! We all heartily agreed but as soon as I walked in, I could tell it was an animal house. The smell of “cat” was intense!
He only had one cat, but it was a small apartment with a balcony, so the smell of the cat food, kitty litter, and general cat “small” was like a wall. I thought if I just waited I would get used to the smell, but nope, it was really that strong. I looked around and everyone else seemed fine, so I thought maybe it’s me having a sensitive nose, so I didn’t make a scene, but also didn’t stay as long as I normally would have.
Later I asked some friends and they said they smelled it but it was fine and it didn’t bother them.
Now he wants to have another drinking session at his place and I really like him and want to join my friends but honestly, for me the smell is so bad I won’t be able to enjoy it.
Am I being unreasonable?
