Would you get rid of a pet in this situation?
First of, I want to say that I totally understand that animals aren't toys that can be given away when you don't want them anymore. I had my Golden Retriever his whole life and I have three cats, one of which I've had since kitten hood and he is now about 8. I have two other cats, who I've also had since kittens. I'm telling you this because I have never made it a habit to get rid of my animals, no matter what happens. But I am 17, living under my parents roof and we are in terrible financial standings. We don't have money. And when we do, it goes to make up for the past due bills. We have our Golden and a Cocker, and 3 cats. Two of my cats I couldnt imagine my life without so I would never get rid of them. But the third cat I have just never connected with. She doesn't like me, in fact she has bitten me several times. I would never wish anything bad to happen to her but in my eyes she is just another mouth to feed. And with us not having the money right now, and with the cats eating as much as they do (we go through about a 3 lb. Bag a week) I'm really considering rehoming her. I feel bad because I brought her home but my parents pay for food and right now the last thing I want them to have to worry about is feeding my animal.
RIP to my Golden Boy Cruz; <3 Gone but never forgotten. "My old friend this song's for you
Cause a few simple verses was the least that I could do
To tell the world that you were here
'Cause the love and the laughter will live on long after
All of the sadness and the tears
We'll meet again my old friend"
