My cat deserves to be taken care of in the event of my death.
In a few years, I'll be 50 and still fat and therefore likely to die. I don't have a partner or kids. My cat means the world to me.
I was drawing up my will and I asked my sister to adopt my cat if I die. I said I would leave my whole estate (about $8,000) for the care of my cat. The bitch said she didn't want to be named guardian of my sweet cat, that she had a real family with real responsibilities.
Now there is a serious rift between us and she feels like a hostile stranger to me. Also, she said she didn't want me raising her kids should she and her douche husband die.
I think she's fabulous!
I take care of your cat for free.
While looking at my local shelter's website I saw a sad thing -- 4 of the cats were from an owner who died in a car accident. Poor things.

My great aunt left a clause and some substantial cash in her will for my mother and her sisters to care for her cat after she died. Cat was a nasty uneutered stinking pure white ( except for the shitstains)15 year old + tom cat that would bite and scratch anyone who came near it.
My mother and her sisters threw that cat in the casket at the cemetery, just before they buried her.
OP, there are millions of fat people who live long lives, or at least certainly well past 50. Unless you have severe health problems, there is no reason to believe you will die so soon.
See your doctor.
Are you serious r5? Wow, to bury a cat alive is not cool. Tell your relatives to enjoy their karma.
You and your mother are trash r5.
Some no kill cat shelters will take your cat when you pass away, but you have to have arranged it with them first.
Instead of being worried about what will happen to your cat if you die in a few years because you're in such bad shape, why not get spend the time and effort to get healthy if for no other reason than you will be able to be with your cat for the rest of his/her life.
OP, send me $5000 as a down payment and I promise I'll look after your cat.
If there really is no one and you are dying, then give your cat 2mg of ativan, and once asleep tie a plastic bag over his/her head.
Humane and certain.
I hope my cat would do the same for me.
Firstly OP just being 50 and overweight doesn't mean you'll suddenly drop dead on your 50th birthday, you don't have cancer you just have some extra weight around the middle which can be gotten rid of by replacing that burger you're currently eating with a salad.
Secondly have you considered losing the weight so that you (not your sister who clearly is not a cat person) will be around for the cat? I dont want to sound harsh but where does your responsibility for the cat begin? And why would she leave her kids to you? You've just told her you don't intend to lose weight and expect to be dead at 50. Do you expect those kids to be orphaned twice?
Lastly, in the unlikely event that you're hit by a bus next Wednesday, please ensure that your cat goes to cat person. I would never leave my dog with a person who was only going to tolerate her. Your sister was being honest, she isn't going to love that cat. Good to know, now find someone who will.
OP, this is your health, your cat, your responsibility.
I suspect you're trolling OP but in case you're not...
Let it go. If your sister doesn't want the cat she'd never care for it anyway. Find another option.
I asked for my aunt's dog when she had to go into a nursing home. The dog was all I got when she died but he was an absolute joy and he had a loved and happy life.
OTOH friends asked me years ago to take their dog if anything happened to them. I said yes at the time but now they have THREE different dogs, none of which are housebroken.
I've told them time and again to take me OUT of the will but I doubt they ever will. Sadly, those dogs will go straight to a shelter if anything does happen to them and I've told them this straight up.
Find someone else who actually cares about you cat, OP.
I'll kill you and your cat for just $5000 of the $8000 you have earmarked for keeping the kitty alive and grieving after your unfortunate fat-related death.
Don't be so mean r14.
The scenario of your life sure reads like a troll post. 50, fat, poor and with a beloved cat? You cannot be for real.
Reserve a place for Tammy right next to your burial site.
I don't believe any of this....
Shouldn't have read R5
As long as you're still alive, you still have time to...
-make new friends
-find a partner
-enjoy your life
-go on a strict no sugar/white flour diet*
(*I dare you to do it for 48 hours and NOT lose weight)
Hi, Umpy (aka OP)! Did you think we wouldn't recognize you?
Unless you're gigantic, morbidly obese, you're unlikely to die in your 50s. You sound sad OP, don't give up, losing weight isn't as hard as you think. 50 could be the beginning of a new life for you.
OP----you are 50 years old and your total net assets only amount to $8,000? I find that extraordinarily low. Would you tell us what happened to you, financially?
$8,000 isn't an estate, an embarrassment? Yes, but not an estate.
$8,000 is just a decent 10 day vacation in Europe for God's sake.
You can change your lifestyle to give you a better chance of living FOR YOUR CAT.
OR, you could hook up and volunteer with some animal rights screws and leave them your estate asking that they care for your cat.

I'll be doing it for you before you ever get a chance to do it to me, motherfucker!!!
Umpy, have you followed CrazyMint's(?) suggestion and started listening to Public Enemy?
The SF SPCA has a program for this scenario. I think its called Sido.
This can't be Umpy--he doesn't have $8000.
Oh relax R7, they b eat it to death with a shovel before tossing it in the casket.
Even if the cat had been alive it would have dined like a king for quite a while...or until its' air ran out.
Yes, this is me and I hope Tammy and I die together.
