I know this is a little unusual, I did a math test recently and I think I’ve did really bad, I hardly knew the work and I didn’t even complete it. Recently my mum also has discovered I had a hamster, I don’t think she minds that much but ever since she knew she started blaming things on it… like when I kept sneezing (I had this before I had the hamster), my mum cares about maths alot and knows how bad iam at it and is looking into getting me a private tutor to catch up.

Today she was like ‘if you do bad on the test I’ll kill your hamster’ and when she’s angry she does and says alot of stuff that aren’t very nice at all, iam scared that she will get angry and storm up to my room and kill my hamster that is basically like my best friend now. I don’t think she’s seen the hamster properly and knows how harmless it is, so tomorrow iam planning on showing her. What do you guys think about this? Or if you have any advice please say. I know it’s just a tiny hamster but she means a lot to me like a person owning a dog.

I’m sure your mum won’t harm your hamster. As you say when she gets cross and frustrated she says stuff that’s upsetting.
I’m not sure that the hamster is really the issue. You sound like you feel pressured by your mum to do well academically.
Can you talk to her about how you feel?

Wether or not she was joking, that's abusive as **** coming from a mother, it's screwed in the head to say something like that to son/daughter

Did you just buy a hamster without her knowing? How could she not have seen it before?

It was kind of gifted to me, I think she knew I had a pet in the house, just not a hamster.

She wasn’t mad at the time she said it, as it was a warning, but if she finds out the results then she may do something bad.
Iam pressured, all the time, I don’t feel I can talk to her because I know she won’t understand anyway.

First of all, I doubt your mother will actually kill your pet hamster but if it something that is actually bothering you have a conversation with her about it (unless she is genuinely abusive). If she is actually abusive, take steps to protect yourself and your hamster - maybe by talking to a trusted adult in your life. If she is not, then focus on improving your maths grades but make it clear that you do not appreciate the threats.

If she goes ahead you'll need to report her to the RSPCA -

Can you show her you are working on your Maths? Maybe try these: https://www.missbsresources.com/teac...mathspassports

There are also leveled revision work on here: https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcse-maths-revision/
