86

Today, I turned 35. Because I'm still single, my sister bought me a cat to help start my "inevitable collection." FML

2 - Not really. OP's sister is either mean or just incredibly stupid. You can't shove that kind of responsibility on people. I really hope OP already kind of wanted a cat, for her sake and the cat's.

I couldn't agree more. I hate that it's some kind of social taboo to be single. Most people I see in relationships are miserable together anyway (one of my sources being this site).

Maybe she escaped the initial cost but now she has to pay for cat food and vet bills for the next like 15 years...so unless OP was planning to get a cat already, it's more of a loss financially.

No animal is really free when you factor in the cost of taking care of it for the rest of its life, and to "gift" a pet to someone who wasn't already planning to get one is irresponsible and rude. OP's sister sounds like an idiot. And thanks to overpopulation, getting a cat for "free" isn't anything special - I didn't pay a cent to get either of mine, and I wasn't even looking for the second one. I'm happy with the 2 I have, but if someone gave me a pet as a gift now I'd be pissed - that's a huge responsibility to force on someone.

Well, I figured the sister probably got the cat from a shelter or something so it already has its shots and everything, rather than picking some mangy feral thing off the streets.
