My husband and I recently moved from our apartment into a house. I have had a bird and a fishtank for years but when we moved hubby asked me if we could get an animal that he would enjoy, like a dog or a cat. We talked about it and agreed to get a kitten. He went on craigslist and answered one of those "free to good home" kind of ads and got a kitten. A few days later he went grocery shopping and came home with another. We decided I would clean the litter box in the morning and he would do it in the evening and empty it once a week. That lasted about 3 weeks and he started getting pissed when I would ask him to do it. He would eventually do it but got pretty mad at me for "nagging." I decided it wasn't worth it and started doing it myself. Then he got a puppy. Guess who takes care of the puppy? Yup. Me. I feed him, walk him and scoop his poop out of the yard every day. I also made sure the puppy and the kittens got their shots and got "fixed," which wasn't exactly cheap. Well, to make a long story short, I'm sick of it. I never really wanted all these animals to begin with and now I am forced to spend hours every day taking care of them! Hubby insists its my job because I am a stahm Mom and he refuses to do anything!
