This is a new post regarding the fate of the cat living at my sister's house.
Bonkers is her name, and she belonged to my nephew. He rarely took care of her, and only brought food, and gave it to her once in a while. He never scooped her litterbox either. My sister begged him and begged him to please take care of her, since he was the one that wanted her in the first place. My sister and her new husband are not cat people, and have 4 dogs, but they allowed him to keep the kitten if she was spayed(yes good) and declawed(she was but i never thought it was a good thing). She lived there for 3 years, and my sister kept offering me the cat because my nephew did not care for her properly, and they did not really want a cat.
Bonkers appareantly did not feel loved there, she had the worst attitude I have ever seen on a cat. She would bite for no reason, and seemed to hate all people and alll other pets. She could not scratch you because of the declaw, but she did try all the time. I was reluctant to take her, and i have 3 of my own. I did not think that she would get along with my 3 cats, she had such a bad attitude, I though that maybe she would get hurt by one of them. So I did not take her.
In an interesting turn of events that happened at my sisters house after they left for their honeymoon, Bonkers ended up getting a new home with my youngest sister and her family. This is how it happened:
My sister(the one that got married) had made the same offer to my other sister when they came up for the wedding. They were very interested in the cat, and were not put off by her attitude. My nephew got mad because I was in charge of keeping the house safe, and making sure that nothing got broken should he and his brother get into an all out brawl, which has happened (the last tiem was at christmas). So he yelled that anyone that wanted the cat could take her because the next day he was taking her to the pound. My sister tried to talk him out of this, and said that she was offered the cat by his mom, and she was just trying to help him out of a problem situation, since he could not care for her. He insisted he was taking her to the pound in the morning, so they took her back home with them that day. I gave them a carrier to help ease their trip, but she spent most of the trip looking out the back window of the van. Sometimes she would go in the carrier. It was a 4 hour drive for them to go home.
I feel really good that Bonkers got a great new home with my youngest sister and her kids, she has had a complete turn around in her behavior, and no longer acts the way she used to. She is the only cat living there and is the queen of the house. She does live with 3 dogs, but is used to that. She no longer according to my mom and yougest sister hisses at people, spits, or trys to tear you a knew one. She does not bite anymore either.
With them she gets all the attention that she never got befroe, and she has a bunch of new toys, and get fed everyday, and played with, and her litter gets cleaned. She could not be a happier cat, and I for one an so happy for her. I honestly believe that this cat knew she was not wanted, and now feels the love that my sister and her bf have for her and is willing to love them all back in return.
Bonkers has truely been blessed with a better life.
Sorry this was kinda long but it was the only way to tell what happened.
