There are few things that parents can do to be classified as “cartoonishly evil.” They can rip up your copy of Moby Dick from the library because you aren’t watching TV with them. They can get their crony daughters to rip up your dress to ensure your inability to attend the ball (or so they think). They can leave you in Chicago while going on a family trip to Paris and let you get on the wrong plane the next year when going to New York.
Sometimes, in real life, bad parents aren’t too far off from their fictional counterparts. They show a kind face to the outside world, but behind closed doors, it’s a different story. In the case of Redditor u/DaveGlover777, his parents fall into this cartoonishly evil group. Because of their resentment towards his pet cat, they sold the poor little guy on Facebook Marketplace without their son’s knowledge or permission.
