A/N: This one has been on the burner for awhile, and my muse was like:
Muse: OK! This one.
Me: *blinks* Oh whoa, we’ve been meaning to write that one for awhile.
Muse: *snort* Don’t get cheeky with me.
Me: *grins a bit* Welcome back, Doll.
So the original prompt came by way of @momokitty27
Prompt: Person A gets turned into a cat. Person B is allergic to cats, but they still try to take care of Person A until the curse wears off because that’s their soulmate.

Cat-aplexies [ Gladio x Reader ]
Your head turned, hearing your name, and you called out to him in return, a loud burbling meow emitting from your throat as you were oh so happy to hear his voice. Your body turned instinctively in his direction, bounding forward when you saw him go wide eyed, and take a step back. You felt your ears perk forward before they turned back against your head, and you mewled, pathetically.
You watched Gladio’s brows raise and he went slightly wide eyed, those amber eyes looking confused. With another sad pathetic mewl you moved closer, only to watch his hands raise up, palms out, and he took a step back.
“N-Nice Kitty…S-Stay over there.”
You paused, your eyes wide. Why was Gladio acting like that? You huffed a little, and sat down on your haunches before you meowed to him again, your tail wrapping demurely about your paws. Your eyes stared at him as you lowered your head, ears perked forward before he seemed to put two and two together.
You mewed again as you got back to your feet, and began to pad forwards toward him only to watch him take a step back for every one you took. You paused, once more your ears turning slightly, as your head tilted to the side, before your ears shot forward. Was Gladio…afraid?
At least that’s what you were thinking, till you heard him sniffle.
“Y-Y/N? If-Iffff….” he sniffled again. “I-if that’s really you, c-can you s-step back a-a liiii-HHECKSHEW!-ugh, little bit?”
Your eyes went wide, your ears remaining forward as the tip of your tail flicked back and forth. He wasn’t afraid. Oh astrals, he was allergic!
When he sneezed again, you instinctively jumped, your fur fluffing up on end as you turned and scrambled away from him, your claws trying to gain purchase on the floor beneath you, as you took off at a full run back to where you had fallen to your current predicament.
You dove under your clothing, grunting softly as you rooted around under them, trying to hide yourself. You trembled a little, looking down at your paws as the last thing you wanted to do was cause your soulmate any trouble. Your tail tip flicked once before you rested your chin on your paws, and huffed out a soft sigh.
“If you wanted to hide better Babe, you should have made sure your t-*sniffle*-tail was hidden too.”
You lifted your head, eyes going wide as you attempted to dart off, only to feel his large warm hands wrap about you as you got tangled up in your clothing. You meowed loudly, flailing about as your feet left the ground as you felt him wrap the cloth about your hind legs, then move to hold you against his chest. You lifted your head to stare up at him, only to let your ears splay out as you noticed his eyes were already red and watering.
“Ya know, you’re ki-iiiiii-nnnnngh.–” he paused and shook his head. “Kinda cute like thi-iisss….HECKSHEW!” he turned his head to sneeze.
You mewled sadly, front paws pushing hard against his chest, your claws creating bright pink marks along his chest, as you tried to squirm away, meowing loudly in complaint. He sniffled again as his large hand gently petted over your ears and the back of your head causing you to pause. You trembled then against him as his light petting continued.
“Shh…Babe. I-gah-gotcha. Don’t worry. Let’s get outta here, and see if we can find the–the oth–HECKSHEW!–ugh, others.”
You mewed again and tried pushing against him once more, only to feel him hold you tighter against his broad chest. He cooed to you softly, in between his sniffles.
“W-what kinda soulmate wou-wouuu…” he paused, sniffling loudly, to the point of snorting. “–would I be if I didn’t help you out, no matter what kind of trouble you were in…?”
When you looked up at him, you were greeted with a soft, teary smile, and your heart broke. You felt so bad for what you were putting him through right now, but couldn’t stop that soft bubbling purr that rumbled from your chest as he gently stroked your ears.
“I’m sure Iggy, has a way of fix-fiiiix..” he paused looking at you, his eyes squinting. “HEEECKSHEWW!” he half bent over with his loud sneeze, clutching you to his chest, before he righted himself, and shook his head. You mewled again softly, ears splaying out once more.
“Ugh, fixing this. He always does,” he looked down at you, and gave you a smile, your ears turning as you noticed that his left eye was starting to swell shut. “I’ve got…a-llllerrr—*sniffle* allergy meds in the car, I’ll be fine Babe.”
He paused, and sort of staggered a bit, causing you to meow softly in alarm.
“Right. P-Pills first. Remove curse, after.”
