New and in a bad situation :(
I've been lurking around for quite some time and have found great info; I've decided to finally register because I'm in a bad situation right now. I have 2 cats (6 and 7 years old), and my lease is up for my apartment; unfortunately due to losing my job, I'm unable to renew it and won't qualify to get into another apartment. My boyfriend lives in another state but is moving here in a couple of months and is more than happy to let me and my 2 cats live with him. However, until then my sister has offered to let me stay with her, but absolutely HATES cats so the only condition is that I must get rid of them for me to live there. She has suggested that I either drop them off at the local shelter or get them euthanized. Both of these options make me SICK, I would never euthanize my (healthy) cats; I also can't stand the thought of letting them suffer in a shelter and possibly eventually be euthanized because hardly anyone adopts older cats. I've literally been sick thinking about those options for the past few weeks. Surely there must be other options?? I love them to death and would do anything to keep them.
I guess my question is are there any other options? I was thinking about kenneling them, but I'm not sure if I would be able to afford that for 2 months. Anyone know about how much it would cost to kennel them for that long?
