Woman Lashes out at Family Members on Mother’s Day for Not Honouring Her as a “Cat Mum”
Mother’s Day can be a hard day for a lot of people. Whether they are reflecting on the loss of a parent, a child, or enduring infertility issues, it can be a difficult day to face. Combine those feelings of sadness with a day that celebrates mothers and families in general, and we can see how challenging it might be.
But the story of a woman who lashed out at her family for not recognising her role as a “cat mum” is something else entirely.
The woman’s brother described the bizarre situation on the subreddit Relationship Advice, seeking support and opinions after his older sister stormed out of a family lunch at a restaurant when she was not honoured as being a mother to four cats.
Known only as osleymoswald, the man writes:
Okay, there is a bit to unpack here.
Firstly, who in the world tips out wine into a pot plant? This behaviour is, quite frankly, absolutely shocking and beyond the realms of normality! I’m personally horrified that someone would mistreat this precious beverage in such a way.
Secondly, while her outburst is wildly inappropriate and her demands to be recognised as a “cat mum” on Mother’s Day are completely over the top, it can be easy to see where she is coming from.
Her family clearly loves and cherishes the grandchildren, as most families do. As the eldest sister, she has watched on as her younger siblings married and started families, knowing that she had her chance to make the same important life decisions that would take her on the same life path as her siblings, but had ruined that for herself by cheating on her fiance. Now she is facing the realities of her terrible choices and is taking it out on her family. Which is not okay. But the rawness of her tantrum is evidence of her unhappiness at not settling down and having a family of her own when she had the chance.
Still, it doesn’t excuse the fact that a 38-year-old woman threw a fork at her brother because she wasn’t honoured for being a “cat mum”.
That shit is wack.
