Hi, Has anybody on here ever had to give a cat away that they absolutely love to another family? If so how did you feel?

I had to give Precious away to my dad. I would have had a fit if he didn't live next door to me lol. I then had to give my JBC away.. I tried to give him to my other Grandma, but because she just lost her cat, she said no. 1 month later, she had 3 cats :shock: So I gave him to John Boy.. hence his name, John Boys Cat.. But we ended up kitty sitting him and he never got him back, lol.

I havnt before but I have to now. I have no choice in this. We are moving to spain with a caravan. My cat has had kittens so it had made the problem bigger. We were going to sort her rabies jab out and stuff and we only needed 30 days. But then we found out she was pregnant. And we knew that we are not going to be here long enough for her to wean them. They will either be about 5 weeks old or 6. And then my mum thinks its unfair to take her in a caravan all the way to spain. But i am so worried that she wont want to live with someone else as she is a one person cat. And we have earned her trust. We have had her for a year, she is a very affectionate cat. She is indoor/outdoor. I get upset even thinking about it. I really dont want to lose her but i dont have a choice! I feel i wont enjoy going to spain without her. We are trying to find her a home with the kittens. But the people we saw today we feel only want the kittens. And our main priority is suki. I dont want to have to give her to the blue cross. I am so scared that she will wonder where we are and pine alot for us. Also i will pine for her. :cry:

Well the people buying the house dont want her so she cant stay in the house. (which would have made it easier for her). We did ask my nan if i could stay at hers with suki and the kittens until they were old enough to leave her and then i would fly out with her. But my nan wouldnt do it. Every time i think about the day that i have to hand her over makes me really upset. And also the thought of not having her there is horrible. I am not sure that i would get over it.

I feel a bit better today as a woman came over to look at the kittens and you could tell she was a cat lover. She is thinking about having suki as well but has to ask her husband. I would be happy if she went to someone like her because i know then that she would be looked after well and loved! It will be hard to let her go but I am sure that if she gets a good home (which we will make sure of) then it will be ok. I will miss her alot though. We are going to get 2 cats when we are in spain. Thanx to this forum i have found a breeder there who breeds ragdolls. She actually lives in ibiza but she ships her kittens out to anywhere really in europe. She said that where we will be going is fine to ship kittens to. We are hopefully going to get two girls. One for me and one for my mum:D Aslong as Suki is happy I am happy:D
