thanks you for all your posts. i live in southern california, so no storms this time of year. the reason why i cant keep the cat indoors right now is because of a new born child and a family that believes "old wives tales" about cats being dangerous for baby's. the straw that broke the camels back was that the cat brought fleas into the house. that was intirely my fault though, cus i thought he wouldn't get fleas without treatment ( my neighbors told me her cats didn't get fleas and she never treated them). so i started to treat my cat with Frontline Plus, but he still gets a couple of fleas here and there. i know he doesn't pose a threat, but the family just wont have it anymore with me and the cat. I hope you guys dont think im some kind of monster to the cat or that im joking. i love my cat, and this past week has been **** for me and the cat.
My brother's family (its his kid) will be moving in mid Fall, so i could have the cat in by then. But from your responses, it seems like im harming the cat, so ill try looking into other options. I talked to my friend and he said maybe he could hold on to him for a couple of months. thats a maybe however; depends on his parents reactions.
