So I found out today DH's aunt told us not to get any more animals.He tells me this after I brought home two finches and a rabbit yesterday, and I'm planning on getting coturnix quail for eggs, possibly for meat, next week. Let me give you a little of a background. This house is as old as DH's grandpa. Grandpa is in a rehabilitation center. The house was sold to DH and his uncle, for a really cheap price, because Grandpa didn't want the house to be lost. After the deed papers were notarized, we had to send the papers to Uncle, who was supposed to mail them back to us to take to the recorders office. They still haven't done this. His aunt and uncle have power of attorney over grandpa. Now it seems like it's only his house when it's convenient for them. They say DH can do things because an owner of the house, but then for other things they make rules. We have 3 little dogs, 5 cats that mostly stay outside, 3 guinea pigs, 3 rabbits, and 2 finches(outdoors in an aviary). Yes, I know that is a lot, but we take good care of them, they are fed a healthy diet, have clean cages, get out of cage time, and they are not destroying anything. We pay all of the bills, the mortgage on the loan Grandpa took out on the house several years ago, plus our small mortgage. Plus we are taking care of the house. We're not complaining about that part. It just feels like we're being treated like children. We are here because no one else either can afford to, wants to, or we know they will destroy it. I'll admit that I might get a little childish in my frustration, and I'm not intending any disrespect to DH's family members, but part of me wants to tell them "You're not my mom!" or "You can't tell me what to do!" Grandpa already signed his part of the deed putting the house in DH and Uncles name, and we've held up our part of the bargain. We love grandpa and love this house, we just don't like being treated like this. Am I wrong to feel like they don't have the right to enforce this on us? Please be nice!
