Rant ahead. Scroll past if you want to ignore my venting.
Have I mentioned that my grandmother is a horrible person and I hate her? Be cause she is and I do. We have two dogs and two cats. She always gets water in the dogs’ ears when she bathes them, which results in ear infections. She also feeds them food that they’re allergic to, resulting in skin infections. And she refuses to allow them medicine or veterinary aid, saying that they don’t need it and that if anything is wrong with them that it’s my fault. The westie’s ear is dark red with brown mucus dripping out of it. She’s constantly whining and shaking her head to get the pus out. The shnoodle’s skin is turning black and crusty. He won’t stop chewing at it, which causes bleeding. And my grandmother is denying that there’s anything wrong with them. They’re suffering and need medical aid, aid that they’re being denied by my grandmother. She also never gives the cats enough litter in their box for them to go in. Every time I put enough in, she takes it out until there’s about an inch of litter in the box. The cats are refusing to use the box and she’s blaming me for that too.
Also, when my mother was a child, my grandmother beat her on a regular basis. She tried to take me and my sister away from my mother when we were born. She lies about us to everyone, saying we treat her badly when in truth SHE’S the abuser. I already mentioned the animal abuse. She also committed credit card fraud. And through all this, nobody in my family who knows her behavior refuses to take action. And WE are the ones who will be stuck cleaning up the mess she leaves behind when she finally bites the big one. I am SO close to going ahead and calling the authorities on her. I have a half-dozen reasons to send her to court, I just need one to hold up. If she doesn’t face the consequences for her actions before she dies, it’s something that will bother me for the rest of my life. It’s not fair that she gets to sow so much suffering and misery and not pay for it. She’s breaking the law and getting away with it. I just wish someone would stand with me against her. I am tired of being the only one in the world who sees that what she’s doing is wrong, of being the only one to stand up to her.
