Leaving your beloved pet in the care of someone else can be a tough decision, but sometimes it’s necessary. Whether it’s for a vacation or a business trip, it’s important to find someone you trust to take care of your furry, feathered, or scaly friend.
In this story, OP’s mother decided to go to the beach for New Year’s, but they have a cat and a dog. Their parents are divorced, and they decided to stay with her dad, but the pets can’t go with them and her dad and stepmother because they’re not willing to take care of them as they consider it too much work and not their responsibility.
OP suggested their mom takes the dog with her while they take care of the cat, but their mom said their grandpa, who owns the house she was going to, wouldn’t like it and that the cat would be alone. So, OP’s mom decided to ask the neighbors to give food and water to the pets while they were away.
As the days passed, OP asked her father to take them to see them, but he was too busy. After five days, OP’s mom messages them that the dog wasn’t eating enough, so they had to go see them, and they were shocked to see that their dog was completely soaked in poop and the cat was sick with scars and lungs filled with air.
OP was devastated by what she saw, but their mom decided to blame all of it on them because they didn’t visit their pets often enough. OP felt like trash after everything that’s happened, so they shared this story on Reddit to see if she was in the wrong.

It’s sad to see something like this happen to these furry pals, especially since it could have been avoided. Maybe the worst part of all of this is the fact that the mom blamed it all on their young child who didn’t do anything wrong.
The people of Reddit made sure to help OP with reassuring words, reminding her that they did nothing wrong.
