If children claim a family pet for their own should they be responsible for its daily care?


Everyday I am told that the family cat is "mine" by one of the children I care for. So as she is a very grown up eight years old what do you think, should she be responsible for the daily care, i.e. cleaning her litter tray, grooming and feeding?

    It is the girl`s family cat, and I have talked to the parents because in my opinion she should be taking more responsibility for it. Especially as she is so possessive of all her things.
