Cats?
« on: April 14, 2009, 05:58:33 PM »
OK guys I know I might get bashed for this but here I go.

5 years ago I found a little almost dead kitten in a tree being tormented by a squirrel. I picked it up and took it to my neighbor who had a few cats and dogs. We cleaned her up and got her litter trained. when time came we took her to the vet had her declawed and fixed. I planned to keep her. Well just before we moved, I took a pair, brother and sister, of cats from the neighbor. She was starting to have too many and was getting more strays all the time. BTW all 3 of these are strays. The ones I got from the neighbor are fixed and declawed.

Fast forward to today.

I'm tired of the cats. They puke sometimes, one of them seems to not be able to find the litter box, and we have 2 boxes. The wife is really getting P.O.'d because of this. They seem to find the cleanest floor rugs and mess on it or puke up on it.
I'm tired of all the cat hair on everything and I mean everything. The cost of food and litter is getting crazy. I'd hate to just let them out, because they are declawed and probably could protect themselves. I really don't want to drop them off at the pound cause the local PetSmart always has cats up for adoption and it looks like no one is adopting them.
Don't get me wrong the brother and sister cats are great and I actually hate to give them up.

What is the best way to deal with this. The wife is really pushing to get rid of them.

I've already been told by the wife to NOT do anything to them. :biggrin:

I vote for the pound or Humane Society, I think there's a difference?

I believe the pound would put them to sleep after 7 days.  I would say the Humane society

You should be able to find out if it's a no-kill shelter. I think (?) all Humane Society facilities are, and there are some public/private ones that are too, just depends on each one individually.

I will check into a few locations and see which ones are no-kill. The cats are great for the most part. Especially the bro & sis. Davey, is so spoiled by me it's unreal.
They would be great cats to any family.

Rat poison works on cats too.    LOL

Just kidding.   Try Craigs List.   Worked for our puppies.

why declaw them?,cats are hunters,also if you moved it could be the cats aren't trained as to the whereabouts of their litters new location inside the house,also didn't you think ahead when you took the cats on they would moult?,try to encourage the cats to sleep in certain areas so you restrict how much fur gets spread thru the house.

Declawing is common for strictly indoor cats. These cats hate to go outside. Not to mention if they did have claws, they tear up furniture and all. When you are fed everyday, what is the need to hunt? There is none.

I have been in this house for 5 years, they know exactly where the litter boxes are. One just thinks she's too good to use the box after one of the others have used it. The cost of littelr is killing me and I've looked at automatic boxes, but I don't think that would help. Yea I did take into consideration that they would shed but it is geting out of control.

Keith, I'm calling PETA.

From the last info about PETA, I don't think it would make any difference. :)*

Another option is a large cage/living quarters. Indoors or out. Still give them plenty of attention, but limit them to one location. This will restrict the areas where they make sh*t and puke.
