So a few months back we lost a cat that we had had for over 17 years.

My wife was finally in a headspace where she wanted to get a new kitten.

We found out about a woman who took in a feral that gave birth to a mid size litter (5 kittens)

We go up there and pick two out after going back and forth with her about favorites. They were free to a good home.

After we get them in the crate and are walking out she starts up with if I get too upset I can just call and we can swap one right? Which we did verbally agree to if it was in the next day.

Shocker she called 48 hrs later about how she’s heart broken and in mourning. But can’t meet up with us for another 3 days....

What legal liability is there if we don’t swap the cats. These guys are totally bonded with each other and splitting them up would be shitty.

We already texted her our reasons for not returning the cat. She’s understandably pissed. I get it.

I don’t like going back on our word. But I also know she wanted this one because it wasn’t a “lap cat”. It’s spent the entire time at our place on one of our laps....

I’m half inclined to just block her number at this point.

We’d have a dog. But my wife would want a BIG dog and they live such short lives and we get very attached to our pets.

I gave her a nice diplomatic rundown of a few solid reasons why. Followed her response with a No effing way response. I was polite but firm.

The only thing that keeps me from blocking the number is the possibility of a small claims court summons. I figure she’ll threaten before she executes.

We did do shots after sending the no dice text. So there’s that.

I would tell her to kindly go #### herself before blocking, but I'm a total loose cannon.

It’s just been three consecutive texts laying a guilt trip.

I do have a measure of guilt. But I’m getting over it.

Monkey shoulder is helping.

Odds are this would keep up even after the "swap out." You're not dealing with a rational person.
