What would you do if your pet suddenly kick-started one of the most traumatic journeys in your lifetime?
While it's not quite uncommon for cats to carry pathogens that can be contracted by humans, the sheer experience of it can sometimes be quite strange and traumatizing—as experienced by this particular Redditor with the handle u/carsgobeep3. Their story was posted under the TIFU subreddit, which gives you an idea of how badly things went after they contracted tapeworms from a newly adopted cat.
From the looks of it, this person seemed like they went through hell and back, from the malevolent COVID-19 taking away their job to leaving themselves grief-stricken amidst a bad case of what the OP (original poster) says "wormageddon". While it's established that they still love their cat despite it all, it's undeniable that the feline certainly caused quite a ruckus here!
It all started when they adopted the cat in question in January. It was a senior one, 11 years of age, with a bad case of fleas—which was the reason why the past owners returned the poor little fellow in the first place.
The post has attracted thousands of Redditors all around the world, hooked on the twists and turns of this story, all while concerned with the health of both the OP and the cat. Check out the story below and prepare yourself for a wild ride!
This one is definitely one of those stories that would probably never get old, no matter how traumatizing it is! Funnily enough, OP certainly knows how to put humor into the situation, and they certainly have the knack of getting us hooked!
