He's going tomorrow :(

Harley, the kitten we have at work is going tomorrow. My boss' brother (who is also a boss, just not my boss) who is not a cat person has had enough and said the kitten has to go or he will get rid of it himself (we dare not ask how). So we found a pet shop that will take him and find him a home.

So they are picking him up at 3 tomorrow and they are going to keep him in confinement for a week and test him for diseases etc. If the results are ok, they will find him a home, if not, they will bring him back to the SPCA where we had him originally and he will be put down.

I am sorry. People who are not cat people lack compassion. Hopefully the kitten will find a home.

Gosh - I'm so sorry. I've been tracking Harley's search for a new home. Anyone taking a business trip near PA? I would love to have him.

I hope he doesn't end up back at the SPCA. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Harley.

Why would they put him down? I thought most SPCA's didn't put any animal down unless they had to.

I think that now and the coming months are a busy season for shelters/SPCA..and there might be no room for another kitty

Hope Harley gets a nice and loving home. Thanks to you and the others for giving him a temporary but safe and loving environment. And your efforts with the pet store to take over. Sorry your boss is like that. Keep us posted.

icklemiss21 - I am so sorry to tell you this now, I didn't ask my husband if we could have harley because he said 3 was our limit so I tried my Mom and she said she wanted an older cat. I just emailed my husband and begged to take Harley in if he wasn't adopted and maybe we could find him a home while he stayed at our house. He said we could have him! I don't know if this helps now. I hope if he doesn't get adopted at the Pet store they will let you know. I don't want to see him get euthenized. My husband thinks a kitten would be good for our clan. I guess I should have asked earlier. I am so sorry, I know you have been holding out for awhile looking for a home for him.

Hes gone - but the lady at the pet shop said she had someone come in this morning who wants a kitten, but an older kitten so it doesn't have to be weaned etc still and can behave, but can still be trained - so hopefully she will take him.
