So right now I have two dogs and two cats. This Saturday my parents are bringing home another dog. I'm upset because I feed all of them, play with them all and take care of them. My parents sometimes help and my younger sister too, not my older sister and it's her cat.

I don't want another dog. I sound like a selfish person. I'm sorry if I do. I don't want him chasing my cat. I like the two dogs and two cats. Maybe I am a horrible person. What's it matter anyways? It doesn't matter how I feel. No one cares. I give up.

You aren't a horrible person. Your feelings are valid.

That doesn't make you selfish! I think that before bringing a new animal into the house it would have been nice to have the whole family on board with it unless there was some sort of emergency where they were sheltering the dog until they could find it a home. But even that's a big decision. I think bringing any animal into the family is a huge decision and if someone's not on board, that the family (in general, not just yours) should reconsider. While people may like animals, there is a limit to how many animals one person is able to handle or tolerate, especially if they're the one doing most of the care, and you've hit that limit. Nothing wrong with that!

Hi Emma, there's nothing wrong with the way you are feeling. It's completely valid, and your concerns are as well since you say that your parents keep bringing home all these new pets and you are the only one to take care of them. You have enough to deal with as it is, and it doesn't seem like your parents are really taking into consideration how you're feeling; especially if they never communicated this new pet deal with you or your siblings before it happened.

You're allowed to feel the way that you do and it doesn't make you selfish. The only thing I can suggest is talking to your family about looking after your pets because it is a big responsibility and maybe even drawing up a roster so that you and your family know what to do on what day. I hope that helped and if you need anything, I'll be here.
