However, with their fourth and last child on the way, his wife is unable to clean the cat litter box due to her pregnancy, and the kids are too young to do it.
OP usually forgets to clean it himself due to his long hours and exhaustion.
He suggested rehoming the cats temporarily until his wife gave birth, but his wife became angry and accused him of being selfish and not wanting to pick up a chore around the house.
OP has offered the following explanation for why they think they might be the a-hole:
Redditors are harsh:
Yeah, but that's probably nothing compare with what OP has to do...
Everyone is tired at the end of the day...
There are ways...
It is a two-minute chore
Trues solution to the problem is:
The decision to rehome a pet is never an easy one, especially when it involves the conflicting needs and desires of family members. In the case of the man in this story, he found himself caught between his love for his pets and his concern for his pregnant wife's health and well-being.
The situation highlights the importance of open communication and compromise in finding a solution that works for everyone involved. Owning pets can bring joy and companionship to our lives, but it also comes with additional responsibilities and challenges.
As pet owners, it is important to consider the impact of our pets on our family and the environment and to make informed decisions that prioritize their welfare and safety. OP is wrong here, and he shouldn't rehome cats, but do chores responsibly.
