I know, thats an absolutly childish name for a thread, but thats how im feeling right now.
My DD (6 yrs old, autism, many other medical and developmental issues) is with her father for 3 weeks over xmas. She will be back on the 6th of January, so i wont see her tomorrow (xmas day).
I just called DD for a chat, as i do every other day while she's there.
DD asked me if she was allowed to bring something home from her dads. I didnt understand what she was saying, so text her father after the phone call to ask him, and he sends me a photo of DD holding a kitten!!
So friggen annoyed!!!!
1) I am allergic to cats
2) If i wanted DD to have a cat i would have got her one, and
3) thats completely unfair!! Poor DD, would be getting attatched to this bloody cat, asks me if she can bring it home, and of course I have to be the bad guy and say no!
This is so evil of her father, as at drop off last week I asked if any presents would be coming home with DD as he's never allowed her to bring anything home in the past (and he only see's her 4 times a yr). He said he'll see what he can do.

So im not overreacting?? I dont think i am at all. 2 yrs ago DDs father gave DD and his step son of the same age a cat (to have at his house), and a jumping castle DD obviously couldnt bring either home.
This yr i know shes getting an iPod touch which I also know she is not bringing home. I just think its so unfair but it never ends with this man!
And now a Cat :s
I hope he still lets me speak to DD tomorrow morning :'(

Definitely not over reacting!!! Pets are a huge responsibility and he should have checked with you first. It might have to be a 'stay at day's' type of present!!! I had this happen to me when my SIL purchased my husband a cockatoo for Xmas a few years ago and didn't check if it would be ok until after she had picked it up. Still makes me mad 6 years later!!!
Big hugs to you and I hope you get to speak with DD tomorrow xxx

God you never ever get a child a pet without talking to the person who will have to take care of it. Especially since you are allergic and now she will have 3 weeks to get attached and have it taken from her. I would think that if you wanted her to have a cat you would have gotten one herself or asked him to get one for her.

Totally unfair! Not overreacting.
Hopefully she's completely ok with it staying at Dad's place.
