Normally I would ask a "serious" question, but for once I just want opinions on a vent...
My younger sister just turned 18 and is looking for her own apartment. My family has 2 cats that are now 7 years old. Apparently my parents have decided that the cats are "hers" (meaning my sister's), and she needs to take them with her if she moves out. They know that that is impossible because these cats are 85% outdoor cats and have been all their lives. No apartment complex will allow that. My parents are not disabled, are in fair health, and have taken equal responsibility for feeding/caring for these cats for the past 7 years, but they informed my sister that if she can't take them with her, she needs to re-home them.
Am I being oversensitive, or is this incredibly wretched? I don't think it's right to decide you don't want to care for an animal after 7 years, when you are still perfectly capable. But I digress...

It is not your sisters obligation, but having said that someone has to give these furbies a good home. I agree this is not right for your parents to do..........it is more than WRETCHED not to mention cruel . Good luck hon trying to find them a home........
