He has done so many other hurtful things as well. He threw her kitty cats out of the house. They all have to live on their own and they’ve never been out of the house in their 13 yrs of life. I am trying to re-capture all of them and at least get them to a shelter. He has chopped down all of her trees in their that were in their front yard. He stopped watering anything which has killed all of her bushes and her roses everything that meant anything to her. He states he cannot take care of any of the things that she did because she just does not have the time. I think that something has snapped and I don’t know if this is proof that I may seek power of attorney over his mental health or not? His boss has really dug his way into my stepfather‘s life. And he is going gambling with him all the time I fear that the next move will be that he asked him if he can be power of attorney on the house you never know when someone will do such a thing. My stepfather speaks of this man is the smartest man on earth and he admires him so very much. If he continues at this pace of gambling he will be completely broke within 8 to 10 months.
