A 17-year-old girl received three chinchillas from her mom as a birthday gift, but her excitement quickly turned to frustration when her mom refused to let her properly care for them. Despite having saved up her own money to buy supplies and a bigger cage, the mom insisted that the small travel cage was sufficient and that chinchillas only live a few months anyway.
After a heated argument, the teen decided to rehome the animals to a friend who could provide better care. The mom called her daughter selfish and ungrateful, while the dad sided with the mom and called the daughter unreasonable.
