Ok OK..I'll admit that if had been a puppy..the guy might have left..LOLAnnMarie said:I wouldn't give up my boys for a man, and have said as much. "The cats were here before you, and if history is any indication, they'll be here long after."
Unfortunately I deal with both situations, as well as tons of others, on practically a daily basis.Please help!!!! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a dog, we have been notified by the breeder that, at long last, our number has come up and ...WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!!!
We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children into rescue this weekend!
They are described as:
One male - His name is Jimmy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had chicken Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained & gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.
One female - Her name is Suzy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy & can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls & little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training-shouldn't take long at all.
We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them; that is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.
I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here!!! They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.
thats my cats name too I love that name xoxoGoddessNoir said:My boyfriend at the time (this is maybe 7 years agoo I feel old) told me one day, "you love that cat more than you love me". I told him, "there will be a day when you are not here but, my cat will always be here". As I write this, my cat sits next to me on my chair. That same boyfriend contacted me earlier this year and after the exchange of pleasantries he asks, "Sebastian still around?" to which I answered, "right here in my lap".
you can just leave a bowl of claritin @ the door for those allergicactivistfatgirl said:I would HATE to be with someone that doesn't like pets. Not loving my babies could definately be a deal-breaker.
However, its a tough call when someone you chill with is super allergic to cats. Its definately a problem. My compromise is to try to be cleaner, but get rid of my pals? No way.
oh my mom is prepared to take my cats if anything..... she knows how much they mean to me & wouldnt let anything happen to them knowing I would be so heartbroken if that happened. & this comes from a woman who didnt like cats... now she does =)moonvine said:I don't do ultimatums. Bye guy! At least in theory, men can take care of themselves - kittens can't. Animals are a lifetime committment. Of course, marriage is too, but the guy is the one who is issuing the ultimatums and threatening to leave.
I've seen this one before, as well as this one:
Unfortunately I deal with both situations, as well as tons of others, on practically a daily basis.
Next week I am intaking (although I have no room at all) a cat whose elderly owner died and the cat was just left out on the streets.
Just a few days ago, another foster took one whose late 20's early 30's kitty daddy died unexpectedly after a brief hospitalization. The cat was left in the apartment for 2 weeks with no food or water. This scares the crap out of me since I live alone.
Make sure you make provisions for your pets after you pass away. It is something you don't really think about when you are young (or always when you are old) but it needs to be taken care of. You don't want to leave it up to someone like me who turns down cats all too often because, although she would love to take them all, doesn't have room, money, or time.
