Hi, my name is Lacy and I have 2 cats (Jinx & Stormy) that I love dearly. They are mother & daughter, and I have had them for 8 & 9 years. I am really struggling right now for strength. My husband, new baby & I are in the process of purchasing a new home, and can't take the cats with us. Reasons being that Jinx has diabetes, and takes a pill everyday, but this does not prevent her from urinating on carpets, blankets, towels, furniture etc. It is especially bad when she is nervous or in a new place or situation. Stormy has begun to urinate on towels on the floor as a learned habit from her mother. I can't have cat urine in our new home with a baby. They have never been separated, or been outside or lived with anyone other than me. My concerns are: will my cats be too upset to live with someone else? Will that person treat my cats as I have treated them? Will I be able to cope with giving away my cats or will I always have the feeling that I have caused them pain in their lives by giving them away. The vet has told me that even if my cat's diabetes is under control she will continue to urinate because of her age and it is now behavioral as much as it is a medical condition. There is no way I can keep them.
