Imagine entrusting your beloved pet to your parents, only to have them ignore your wishes and cause the pet's untimely death. That's exactly what happened to a 26-year-old woman who left her cat, Kylo, with her parents while she and her husband settled into their new home. Despite her explicit instructions to keep Kylo indoors, her parents let him roam outside, leading to a tragic accident. Now, the heartbroken woman is questioning whether her parents can be trusted with her future children. 💔👶
