A little background
OP’s stepdad and mom secretly dropped her cat off at the shelter
OP has held a grudge ever since
Now OP is pregnant and has decided to leave her parents out of the announcement
Here’s how the Reddit community reacted to the story:
OP’s partner seems to be a divisive factor within the family
“Honestly, if they had done that to my cat, I would have kicked them out of my life for good.“
“NTB, but why are you even in contact with these people?”
“They actually sound awful. The cheek of them debating if they want a second grandchild.”
“You are under no obligation to tell anyone you don’t want to that you are expecting.“
“I'd be a little put off if I was taking care of someone's sickly cat that pees on the laundry.“
“Why are you still in any kind of contact with these monsters?“
OP’s parents' justification for their terrible act was her cat’s ailing health, but the real motive was shrouded in secrecy. As we saw, it didn't take long for their lies to unravel.
Interestingly, OP’s grandmother pointed out that the cat was healthy the last time she saw her. This pointed to the fact that OP's stepdad acted based on his allergy to cats over anything else.
No one blames OP for her decision. It's clear that the trust between her and her parents has been broken, and they will have to face the consequences of their actions.
