I have been staying with my boyfriend’s parents at their house. I brought my kitten and they told me they wanted me to find a different home for it as they had too many animals already. The next day I come to find out my boyfriend’s mother had given my kitten away to one of her friends. I love my kitten and I want her back what can I do?
People who believe their animal is being wrongfully withheld can ask for the return of the animal and can sue (replevin action) to try to get the animal back. Clearly, the cat is not welcome in your boyfriend’s parents’ home. If the cat is returned to you, you will need to find another place to keep your cat (and perhaps yourself). I hope you all consider what is in the best interests of this kitten.
