My friend Karl had emergency surgery twice. He was put on a vent and I don't think he's not going to make it. Now he's has a track (a tube in his throat to help him breathe). He asked me a while ago if something happened to him if I would take his cat Pete. Of course I will. Oh how I love Pete and Pete loves me. I just love this cat. He's so gentle. He never bites or scratches me. I just don't think Karl is going to make it. Pneumonia, 80 years old, and with cancer, though the cancer has been good. He was doing so well and then boom everything changed. I live with my 2 cats in an apartment. I just know if I take Pete someone here will find out and complain to the office and I will be told to get rid of him. It's happened to someone here before. Some people have nothing else to do but complain about other people. That would break my heart. I'm thinking of asking my friend, who lost her cat about 5 months ago. She's lonely without a cat. My only stipulation is that Pete can never be allowed to go outside. He's never been outside. That's how she's lost her cats and I've told her she can't have a cat that goes outside. If this happens I will tell her that she can only take him if she's doesn't let him outside and if I find out she lets him outside (it's mostly her boyfriend who does this) that I will immediately take him back. I'm going to put this in writting and have her sign it to cover my butt. Pete is so lonely without Karl. He misses his daddy so much and I feel so sorry for him. I go to Karl's house everyday to take care of the cats-Pete and Screech- and the geese. I stay all day because I don't want to have to travel 2 times a day to his house. When I leave Karl's house at 6 pm Pete cries out and it breaks my heart to have to leave him. But my cats suffer because of this but right now I need to be there for Karl and his cats. I also fear that if Karl dies that if his son doesn't take Screech that I will have to try to find a no kill shelter for Screech. I'm so worried about this but it seems no one wants Screech. I hope I can convince Karl's step-son to take Screech. He seems to like him. He says Screech is so nice. He loves it when Jim comes and sleeps over night. It would kill me if Screech ended being PTS because of this. I just love cats and if something bad happened to Screech I would be so upset. I worry about this when I'm old and have cats. What would happen to my cat. I can't live without a cat but I worry about my cat's future when I'm gone. This is such a problem when people are elderly. I looked into a program that will take care of your cat when you are gone for the life of the cat but they want $10,000.00. I certainly cant afford that. It puts you in a dilema of having a cat or not. It's not fair. Your pets suffer. If Karl dies I have no idea what will happen to the geese. I don't really like them but I wish them no harm. I will try to find a place that can take them. It's not like there is an animal shelter that will take them here. If I can't find a place that will take the geese then the only thing that will happen is that they are PTS. His son and sister can't take them. There has to be some place that can take them. All of this worry is taking a toll on me. I worry so much for his animals. I welcome any suggestions.
