I am more than likely going to have to rehome Star.

He chewed an extension cable for internet access so that the internet connection is spotty. I don't want to rehome him, but I can see where my ex-husband is coming from (and please, I don't want this to be about my es-husband so kindly keep your comments to yourself). There is a no-kill shelter that we could take him to, but I would much rather have him go to a home. Is there anyone one here in the Southern California area who could take my boy? He's seven years old and the biggest lap cat.

Why not just get a plastic encasing for the new set of wires and spray it with bitter apple which can be found in pet stores?

Believe me, I've already tried suggesting that.

Have you had him for 7 years? Why now do you want to get rid of him, is it because he chewed on the wires? Please do not rehome unless it is absolutely necessary, especailly sine your kitty is 7 years old. I would especially not give it to a shelter because she is an older cat, it will take much longer for her to get adopted. There are always other solutions, just ask us and we can help

Suggesting it and doing it are two different things.

I've had Star since he was a kitten. I watched him being born. And it's not that I want to get rid of him. I'm not in a position where I can ask for certain things, and, unfortunately Star's chewing on chords and cables is not negotiable. I've tried already. I already feel bad enough because Star is my heart kitty and having to give him up is tearing me apart. So please, I don't want or need any "don't rehome unless absolutely necessary" responses. If it wasn't necessary, I wouldn't have made this post in the first place.

I know, but when you have someone who thinks the cat is the one that needs to change his behavior and that spending extra money to fix a problem that is the cat's fault, then what do you do? Remember, I'm in a unique situation. I'm not going to go into it here (but PM me and I can explain it again). I just want the best for my baby.

I am not judging, but isn't he going to chew on cords wherever he goes? Was this a first time offense? It's hard to wrap my head around rehoming him for that.

As do I. It's a complicated situation, but since I'm not on the lease, then technically I have no say so in this.
