Her Sister Is Getting Evicted and She Has the Money to Help but She Would Rather Spend the Money on Her Cat’s Surgery

A woman recently upset her family because she didn’t want to give her sister money for rent. Her sister might get kicked out of her home, but the woman’s cat needs an operation, so she doesn’t have much extra money. Here’s what she had to say.

“I was always less than, while she could do no wrong,” she said.

“She’d always buy my sister everything she wanted while I wore her hand-me-downs.”

The woman moved out of her family home at 18 and worked throughout her time at college.

She had no contact with her mother and only limited contact with her sister after she moved away for school.

Since then, the woman’s path and the paths of both her mother and sister have diverged greatly.

The young woman now works in a job that pays well, whereas her sister is a stay-at-home mother.

“I guess I never quite got over this, and while I know the main jerk is my mother and my sister didn’t really know any better, I still fester negative feelings towards both of them,” she said.

When She Was Young, She Found a Cat

When the woman was 13, she found a newborn kitten in a bag. Of the litter that was there, he was the only one that was still alive, and she raised him over summer break. She named him Tom.

She Has Had the Cat Since Then

When school started again, the woman’s mother got rid of the cat, and she spent days trying to find him.

The young woman found Tom after a week of searching, and the two have been together since.

Over the past few months, Tom’s health has slowly been declining.

Based on a recent blood panel test, however, it was deduced that Tom still had some of his life left to live.

She said that he was, by far, the healthiest geriatric cat she had ever seen, and so, despite Tom being 21 years of age, they decided to try and improve his quality of life through surgery.

Though the woman is not based in the US, the surgery still came with a hefty price tag that amounts to around three months’ wages.

Recently, the woman’s sister dropped by for a visit, even though the two had not spoken since Christmas.

Her husband, unfortunately, invested in NFTs and lost quite a lot of money. They are now behind on their rent.

She asked the woman if she could help her out, but the woman explained the situation about her cat, Tom, and said she didn’t have any spare money.

The Woman Gave Some Advice

The woman suggested to her sister that she get a job and/or downsize for a time, perhaps by moving back in with their mother until the couple was back on their feet.

The sister became furious. She couldn’t believe that the woman was spending that much money on a cat. She screamed at her, calling her a jerk and a crazy cat lady that would end up alone.

The woman got angry and kicked her sister out of her home!

In the days that followed, the woman’s family flooded her with messages, accusing her of being heartless and caring more about her cat than her own family.

Her husband suggested that she should have given her sister some money, and the woman acknowledged that he was probably right.

But the woman also realized that the real reason for not wanting to help out was probably due to her unresolved childhood issues.

Was She Wrong?

The woman asked the internet if she was wrong for prioritizing her pet over her sister.
