And here, the OP is telling the reddit community her story
[ ADVERTISEMENT ]
OP's MIL and FIL have been caring for their cats while they have been visiting her family
OP's partner is beating himself up about it and considering going no contact with his mom
We've gathered some of the topmost comments from other redditors in response to the OP's story
The entitlement is staggering for this redditor, let alone the selfishness
It's clearly not okay if she got the message before giving the cat away
This redditor listed the couple of scenarios at play in this story
She crossed a huge line and she needs a big time out
From a redditor:
I agree with the poster that said get contact information for the family that adopted your cat. And if she won’t give you that information it would make me wonder if there was a family or if she didn’t take and drop it off somewhere or give it to a shelter or have it put down.
This redditor says they would never speak to the MIL again
She could've compromised no matter what reason she gave for doing so
This redditor's eye brows shot off their head from reading the story
They shouldn't be rewarded with more drama for this cruelty
What social grace is in this situation
So many redditors agreed that the OP was surely not overreacting as her MIL was told to wait, but she didn't. This cat is clearly family to the OP and her partner, and they just wanted to make sure it was in capable hands, but the MIL didn't even give them that chance.
