Getting rid of the cat.
Well trying to get rid of him anyway. I’ve posted on a group for rehoming pets on FB, and put an ad on Craigslist. So far, no one has responded. I’m going to call the shelter on Monday, to see if they’ll send someone to come get him. Melissa won’t take him, (technically she doesn’t have to, but she did go with me to get him.) She doesn’t want to take me to surrender him, because she doesn’t agree with what I’m doing. I had him for 6 months, and my parents had him for a year and a half.
I’m still not a cat person, I never was and never will be! I got him because my brother said cats are great companions, and some cats are. A friend of mine has a cat that’s pretty chill. In other words, she doesn’t mind being by herself, but she also likes her share of attention. My cat constantly wants attention, way more than his fair share. No matter what I do, it never seems like it’s enough.
If I lay on the couch for a few minutes in the morning to pet him, he’ll get up on my chest, then after a couple minutes he gets down. As soon as I get up he meows and cries like a baby because he wants me to pet him again. By then, it’s time to take my meds, figure out whether I’m making tea or coffee, and get on with my day. Unfortunately, he doesn’t see it that way. I’ve been able to distract him some with the long stringy treats from the Friskies pull and play, but it only works for a few minutes, just long enough to start my day.
I know my mom is going to be mad at me, (she’s already told me I shouldn’t have adopted him twice.) There’s nothing I can do about the past now, unfortunately. That’s why I’ve tried Craigslist and Facebook first, to see if I myself could find him a permanent home.
