Remember when I was having a cry over my cat sitter cancelling the night we were heading to Adelaide? We ended up bringing my whingey male cat to my mum’s and leaving the other two at home with Reuben’s mum making the drive to check on them mid-week.
We didn’t want to do this because a) Poor lonely babies b) Our rental’s owners had just completely gutted our kitchen for some reason and were coming over that Monday to see the work. But we had no choice.
So, the cats stayed behind.
And the owners came over.
And presumably saw dirty litters that hadn’t been changed in days.
And issued us a breach.
And then issued us a notice to leave.
I’m serious. It wasn’t even an official inspection! We tried to reschedule and begged them to be lenient as we would be out of state. I’m super pissed. It isn’t until January, BUT STILL.
Reuben says we should just buy our own place as houses are super cheap in Toowoomba, but apart from the prospect of a mortgage being terrifying, I feel like the way the owners handled the situation was so unfair. Enough complaining for today.
