Red Dead Redemption 2 has everything you’d ever need in a game and more. You can take care of your horse, you can skin animals, and you can pet the dogs you see in the streets. What more could you ask for?
Well, apparently you can ask for the ability to pet cats, which is what nearly 2000 people are asking for in a petition to Rockstar Games.
A RDR2 fan by the name of Mark Kenway has started a Change.org petition for Rockstar to make cats pet-able, branding the game as “animal racist” for not including the mechanic from the get-go…
On the petition, Kenway rages: “We can’t pet cats in Red Dead Redemption 2 but we can pet dogs. Wtf is this animalracism [sic] ?
“We need to be able to pet cats or I’ll fcking [sic] stop petting all dogs that I see. I’m not fcking joking. Try me.
“One day, I was walking in Saint-Denis and I saw a kitty. Wanting to pet this cute little guy, I crouched to see if I could pet him like I usually do to every dogs I see (even during missions, robbery, etc) but for some reason, I got triggered by the fact that you cannot pet a mf cat in this game but you can pet all the dogs instead.
I would like to know why in Red Dead Redemption 2 I can pet good doggos but I can’t give scritches to the cat I befriended.

Red Dead Redemption 2 would be the greatest game ever, but you can’t pet the cats. 0/10
