How is she supposed to apologize if you don't answer the phone?



I'd be super pissed too and I don't think you're in the wrong at all



That being said, i do think someone needs to be the bigger person and make the first move in repairing this relationship. They're not random people, they're your inlaws and your husbands family. They mean something to him, so you need to figure out a way to make it peaceful, for his sake.

True. She should have just kept her mouth shut and said she didn't know where the cat went.

Well no wonder this is an on-going battle.



Just suck it up and apologize for it, even if you don't really mean it or want to. It's part of being an adult. Her friendship got messed up because you took a cat, even with good intentions, and she's pissed at you for ruining it. That's probably all she wants.



That's all I'm saying. You're both acting like children, to be perfectly honest.

She abandoned that cat along with 4 others so I agree! SIL shouldn't have said anything at all. Instead she sold out family for an animal neglecting friend

Doesn't sound like you really want opinions, since you're getting really snappy right now.



Don't associate with her if you don't want to but don't keep her from her nephew. That's beyond childish and petty.

I don't agree.



I think it's petty to keep a child from a family member just to spite them or hurt them. But I do not think it's petty if it's a result of something else. I didn't talk to my mom for a year, which meant she couldn't see DD... I didn't do that to hurt her, but if someone is toxic to my life they cannot be in my childs life.
