Honey, I'm on my way somewhere and haven't had time to read carefully enough to be sure I follow where things stand, but let me say this:
1. If you don't have the cats now, have the police (and someone from the shelter if necessary) go with you to get them back once and for all. And don't ever give them back, no matter what your boyfriend (ex or otherwise) says. Those people are not fit to have
2. If you even think of getting together with that boyfriend again, I will personally come whack you upside the haid!
He took advantage of you because he was too weak to stand up to his evil, bullying father. Anyone who would let you be put through all this does not deserve to be with you.
3. And remember... that boy has his father's genes.
Someone who comes from a family like that can
overcome their influence, but it doesn't sound like this kid has done so. You can do better.
If I sound harsh, please forgive me -- it's them
I'm mad at, not you, dear...
Well... okay, I'm a little
mad at you, for letting them manipulate you this way -- but I was a 17-year-old girl once, too, and I know how hard it is to stand tall at that age.
But you're going to
from now on! Right?
