looks like i have to give my 6 year old cat away folks (pic of her below). im starting a new lorry driving job in a months time. im in northern ireland and the jobs in england which means ill only be at home a couple of days every couple of weeks which of course wouldnt be fair on my cat so unfortunately it has come to this.
i live on my own so theres no one else here to look after her. theres a couple of families who live in the countryside who said they might look after her but even if this happens (and i have my doubts whether either family will take her) there will be problems because fluff is such a shy, fussy eating, likes her own space house cat... she might have great difficulty adapting to a completely different life.
everyone remarks how shy she is and i take the blame for this because for the first year of her life there wasnt a catflap & i was so scared to let her out the door incase something happened so im guessing thats why.
anyway at the minute i dont have too many options and im starting to panic. id be so happy if i could find a good home which in time she could hopefully settle and live happily ever after.
on a couple of occasions when i was away on a weeks holidays my mother who called in and fed her said she did nothing but cry and never ate.
it really is the only thing on my mind at the moment i love her to bits. ive heard horror stories (not sure whether theyre true or not) about when owners had to give there cats away & they died of a broken heart.
shes so reliant on me, always at my side when im home. when i leave for work in the mornings shes at the kitchen window saying goodbye and the neighbours tell me everyday exactly 5 mins before im home she comes out to greet me.
what other options have i?
