Has Anyone?

Hi, Has anybody on here ever had to give a cat away that they absolutely love to another family? If so how did you feel?

Oh am I glad I never did. I am sure if I had to give away one of my cats it would feel awful. Did you have to give one away?

I had to give Precious away to my dad. I would have had a fit if he didn't live next door to me lol. I then had to give my JBC away.. I tried to give him to my other Grandma, but because she just lost her cat, she said no. 1 month later, she had 3 cats So I gave him to John Boy.. hence his name, John Boys Cat.. But we ended up kitty sitting him and he never got him back, lol.

I havnt before but I have to now. I have no choice in this. We are moving to spain with a caravan. My cat has had kittens so it had made the problem bigger. We were going to sort her rabies jab out and stuff and we only needed 30 days. But then we found out she was pregnant. And we knew that we are not going to be here long enough for her to wean them. They will either be about 5 weeks old or 6. And then my mum thinks its unfair to take her in a caravan all the way to spain. But i am so worried that she wont want to live with someone else as she is a one person cat. And we have earned her trust. We have had her for a year, she is a very affectionate cat. She is indoor/outdoor. I get upset even thinking about it. I really dont want to lose her but i dont have a choice! I feel i wont enjoy going to spain without her. We are trying to find her a home with the kittens. But the people we saw today we feel only want the kittens. And our main priority is suki. I dont want to have to give her to the blue cross. I am so scared that she will wonder where we are and pine alot for us. Also i will pine for her.

I feel so sorry for you. Ask whoever you give her away to, to send letters with photos and updates on how she is.

I'm so sorry! Your heart must be broken. I pray you find a home for her. This is tragic. Can you board her or have a friend or a dependable teen in the neighborhood come over daily to care for her?

[b]Well the people buying the house dont want her so she cant stay in the house. (which would have made it easier for her). We did ask my nan if i could stay at hers with suki and the kittens until they were old enough to leave her and then i would fly out with her. But my nan wouldnt do it. Every time i think about the day that i have to hand her over makes me really upset. And also the thought of not having her there is horrible. I am not sure that i would get over it.
