A sane person, upon meeting a kind soul who brought him his cat back, would appreciate him and honor him. Nevertheless, this does not always happen with all lost pets. It would appear as though not all people plan on keeping the promises they make as long as they get whatever it is that they want.
A family recently promised a $500 reward to whosoever would bring their lost cat back to them. A person, upon finding the cat, brought the little kitty back to its family, and the family was overjoyed they finally had their adorable catto back. This lasted for only about a minute, though. The emotions changed after the family realized that the Good Samaritan was not out looking for the cat out of a kind heart and expected to be rewarded with the promised $500.

The man who brought the kitty back was extremely distraught with the family’s behavior that he took the issue upon the “Am I the Assh*le” Reddit community to ask others as to what how he should have reacted.
