TEEN Mom Jenelle Evans was slammed by the fans for “collecting animals” after she showed off her pet cat despite the dog killing scandal.
Jenelle, 29, showed off her pet cat in an Instagram story.
The Teen Mom 2 alum zoomed in on the whiskers and white fur on the black cat’s body.
The caption stated: “This kitten adores me and same.”
Reddit users were not thrilled in the comments section with the former MTV mom holding an animal in her arms.
One Reddit user said: “Why do they keep collecting animals? I don’t understand their thought process.”
Another Reddit user wrote: “Jenelle just collects things to post about. In no time this will be a memory like all those other animals.”
A third critic added: “This is what I don’t understand. Why do they insist on getting more and more animals? It takes a lot of care, compassion, and money to take care of animals.”
Another Redditor chimed in: “God I hope they treat this adorable little kitty with love. They have a horrid track record, shouldn’t even be allowed to adopt.”
A commentator pointed out: “I’d hope that she’s at least blacklisted from local shelters after the shooting incident. With that being said I don’t know who the hell would give/sell her a kitten knowing her history of neglect and abuse.”
THE NEW DOG
Back in June, Jenelle’s husband David shared an online photo of four-year-old daughter Ensley hugging her dog, Rosey, as they stood near a pool.
Alongside the snap, he captioned: “If you can’t get in your dog’s face and give him kisses you need a new dog.”
After a number of his followers slammed him for how he has treated his pets in the past, David took to the comments section to defend himself.
The TV personality wrote: “I don’t have to respect any animals ‘boundaries’ in my own home.
“Neither do my children, thanks for your opinion but you can shove it up yours.”
WHAT HAPPENED TO NUGGET?
Back in 2019, Jenelle and David were famously fired from Teen Mom 2 after he had killed their family dog, Nugget.
He defended his controversial decision by claiming that the pup had nipped at Ensley’s face.
After they were let go from the reality show, the two claimed in a YouTube video that the Teen Mom’s production team was afraid to work with him and would ask not to go into their house.
In response to their claim, an MTV spokesperson stated: “MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since.
“Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”
