Dad Gives Away His Teenage Son’s Beloved Cat For Ruining His Carpet, Son Retaliates

Dad Gives Away His Teenage Son's Beloved Cat For Ruining His Carpet, Son Retaliates

If you cannot take full responsibility for a pet, it is better to give it away.

Pets are a responsibility; you cannot leave them unattended in your house. You are responsible to keep them clean while keeping your house clean. No one wants their cats to be pooping around the house. A Reddit user got a cat for his son about one and a half years ago. OP’s son got close to the cat really quickly. OP was glad that the cat would keep his son away from the teenage stress but the only problem OP had with this cat was she didn’t know the difference between a cat litter box and a carpet.

The cat would poop everywhere in the house. OP had a talk with his son but he would never clean the cat’s poop. OP was tired of cleaning and one day, he gave the cat away to his aunt. When OP’s son learned that the cat is gone, he was sad and stopped talking to OP. Scroll down below to read the complete story.

OP has done everything to train the cat but the cat did not learn. He did the right thing to give the cat away but he should have talked to his son about giving away the cat before giving it to his aunt. This way his son would not have reacted this way. He should still talk to his son and explain to his son why was it important to give the cat away.
