A woman has spoken out and sought advice after her “creepy” husband put her ‘little baby’ up for adoption.
The married lady in question, who is from the US, revealed in her Reddit post that she’s decided to divorce her husband after the man allegedly gave her cat – which she adopted years ago to cope with the loss of her father – to an animal shelter without her permission.
According to the woman, she sees her cat as her little baby and a reincarnation of her father and she would never even consider giving him away for whatever reason.
Her husband, however, believes that her obsession with the cat has gone too far and he decided to get rid of the animal without his wife’s awareness or permission.
“I really believe Benji [the cat] is the reincarnation of my dad. When I look into his eyes, I feel something more than a cat. Like a cat born with a human soul. All the timing adds up, it all makes sense to me at least. Even if I am crazy the thought brings me comfort and I don’t see anything wrong with it,” the woman admitted.
“My husband says my bond with the cat freaks him out, and makes him uncomfortable that I truly believe he has my dad’s soul.”
The disgruntled wife went on to say that her partner got rid of her cat while she was out celebrating her mother’s birthday.
“I had no idea what was going on while I was out. When I came home and couldn’t find the cat my first thought was that he must have somehow made his way outside. This already worried me because we never let him out, God knows what could happen to him out there!” she added.
“After my frantic search inside and on my way outside to keep searching, [my husband] informs me that Benji is ‘staying with a friend.’ My husband had no right, the cat has always been only mine. I adopted him, I raised him, I care for him, I’m the only one who ever spends any money on him. I am at a loss right now.”
After calling the ‘friend’ and threatening to get the police involved when he refused to give the cat back, the woman learned that Benji was actually given to an animal shelter.
“I immediately tracked the shelter down to retrieve my boy, I had all my documents needed to prove he is mine, and he has a microchip. I took him straight to my sister’s house, where I will also be staying for the time being,” she added.
“My sister had been through divorce and has remarried, so she will help me get all my ducks in a row and prepare to file for divorce. I am heartbroken, but also incredibly thankful that my poor boy is now home safe! He was clearly stressed and confused but he is settling in quite well at my sisters.
“My brother will be picking up any necessities from my house for me, I haven’t been home or seen my husband since I left for the shelter. My family has supported me in my decisions and they are all willing to do whatever it takes to help me when I may need them.”
After asking Reddit for advice, the majority of people sided with the woman and blasted her husband for ‘kidnapping’ the cat and giving it away without her permission.
“So the husband was basically jealous of a cat […] What a d****d. I’m glad she’s divorcing him, he’s way more unhinged than he thinks she is,” someone wrote.
“The reincarnation bit is irrelevant, He did an inexcusable act. Some people suck,” another said.
