That's not uncommon, especially if you're an adult... Would you really want your parents to constantly bring home piles of gifts every time they went away? You'd probably have to throw most of them out -.-
Personally, I would love having my parents buying me stuff from every trip, but that's because my parents know me really well and always buy me gifts I love. My dad's even picked out rings and purses and other things and I've always loved each thing he got me. I've never had to throw anything out. With that said, if op is an adult and living on their own, then I can see why they bought the cat more things. They probably think of their cat as their youngest child and the only one left still around. Plus the things they bought the cat were probably cheaper than the types of gifts that op would want at their age.
Cats are human too! On a more serious subject, don't feel down/offended by that. I'm sure they meant no harm.
They didn't have to bring you anything stop being so ungrateful
The point was that it implies that they love the cat more than OP, not that she didn't get enough presents. I'm pretty sure OP wasn't asking for or expecting them in the first place and just thought it would be a funny thing to post. You don't need to attack her.
I stopped buying souvenirs for others because I realized A) how expensive and heavy it is when you don't want to leave anyone out, and B) that most people love their gifts for two days and then forget about them. Plus, souvenirs are to remind you of a place and the experiences you had - what do you reminisce if you were never there?
