Haha, yeah. My dad and I haven't gotten along for about 5 years. We used to have hardly any money, and I was "daddy's girl" but since our financial lives have improved he isn't the same person.
I will never understand his thought process as to why you would want animals you cannot care for. I used to volunteer at an animal shelter and my dad filled out an application for a dog, and they declined, most likely due to the vet care he doesn't provide. I know that I would want to care for my animals as an adult, but the 2 dogs & 2 cat's are my responsibility. I feed, walk, bathe, and clean up after them all. I truly don't mind it because I do love them with all my heart. Thankfully my cat's have had very very few health issues.. But my dogs being back yard bred & receiving no vet care just breaks my heart.
My mom is on the same route as I am, but she cannot do anything as can't I.
