Since we've decided to not pursue legal action or anything stupid like that, here is the story of what happened:

We asked one of our closest friends in Lawrence to be a bridesmaid/groomswoman at our wedding. Even after knowing about the wedding for five months, she said she wasn't able to afford the plane ticket out to California. So I paid for the $500+ ticket with the understanding that she would help out with the facilitating the wedding/honeymoon and take care of our cats and our apartment while we were gone for three weeks.

But...
* She flew out with the tuxedos, but not back with them. It cost $100+ to ship them back on time.
* She didn't pick up any of our wedding gifts (even after promising to 'pick them up tommorow' on the phone), so around a dozen of them were returned to the senders.
* She claimed yesterday that she checked on the cats 'on average, every other day,' but the UPS guy said that the notices he left on Monday were still there the following Monday.

So while Emily's been to upset to talk with her, I've given her several opportunities to simply apologize on the phone, to just say 'I am sorry that I fucked up, lied to you, and killed your cats,' but she hasn't.

The world is the way it is because of people like her.

Re: This is so terrible

Thank you for your sympathies. They are very much appreciated.

I didn't mention it in the post, but the real kicker is that today is my birthday.

Re: This is so terrible

Shit, we're becoming an internet phenomenon. My inbox has been flooded with supportive emails (and Paypal donations) from perfect strangers. It's been nice to have that support.

Go for it. It might save another pet.

nate, so sorry. . .this makes me really reflect on some of the decisions I've made in the past asking some sketchy people to catsit. Everything always went fine, but it really makes me think "what if". . .

i'm curious to hear asa's take on all this. . .

Hey Nate-- do you guys still need help with the vet bills? Are you still accepting donations?
