Cat Owner Wants to Ditch Pet in Western New York
For the past couple of years, thanks to a lot of us working from home and missing out on seeing friends and family, adopting rescued pets have been on the rise. It’s such a rewarding feeling to meet a new little friend, take them home, and know you’re going to take great care of them (and likewise, they take great care of you).
Sometimes though, rescuing a pet might not be all it’s cracked up to be, and things don’t go exactly as planned.
Take what happened to Reddit user u/lbeanjamin. Not long ago on the r/Buffalo subreddit, she posted looking for someone to adopt her adorable new kitten for a reason a lot of people can relate to: allergies.
hi-- so i adopted a kitten not that long ago, to be a friend to my other cat. things were fine for a bit but as the days went on, i started to get really allergic to her. and now it's so bad that i haven't breathed out of nose since like march. because of this i haven't been able to give her the love that she deserves!!! she's a wonderful little kitten who loves to play and loves cuddles. i just can't take care of her much longer. i've had to get an inhaler and go on meds in order to breathe because of her and i just can't do that forever. i feel so bad !!!
Needless to say, some people were NOT happy about this.
On the other hand, some Reddit users had similar experiences with adopting a rescue pet.
Some even tried to make helpful suggestions to no avail.
This is a sensitive issue for a lot of animal lovers out there. I understand having an unforeseen issue that is out of your control after adopting a pet. I just hope that this Reddit user makes sure her adorable kitten actually goes to a loving, responsible home - or connects with an adoption agency that can look out for her until they find the right owners for her. What do you think?
