Wow. Thank you for all that great information.
Is there no way to accomodate your little friend?
That is the question that has been nagging me for the past three days. I'm still working it out, but I don't see how I can.
The real issue is not my erratic schedule, because I think I could probably make that problem go away if I really had to.
The real issue is: Just how much I am willing to give up for my pet?
I do have these feelings of attachment to this cat that actually make me almost cry every time I think about giving him away. But it also feels like insanity to me to give my whole life over for a cat. Especially if there is a possibility that I can find a home for him. Not that I think you're insane. Actually maybe you are a little bit crazy, but in a good, charitable way.
I love to go out, and I love to be free to come and go as I please. I love my life as it is. Am I willing to give it all up?
Plus, I don't have a lot of disposable income. I just paid my vet almost five hundred dollars, with another two hundred dollar test to come next week. And who knows how many after that? I can't afford to be spending over a hundred dollars extra each month. Even half of that would be a herculean task for me.
It's been only three days since this all started, and I am completely overwhelmed by all this new information and all these new things I am now forced to deal with. I have been back and forth to the vet every morning this week, I've been reading, and I've been asking people about this. I've been looking into my cat's cute little face and promising him that he'll be alright. I've been looking things up online. And this is not the only big change in my life that is happening right now. I am a wreck.
The ironic thing about all this is that one of the main reasons I got a cat in the first place was because of all the flexibility it allowed me to have.
Sorry I went on and on, but like I said, this is all brand new to me and I'm still trying to work it all out.
Okay, now I have to go, because I have to give him a shot.
Thanks, and thank you Noddy and tico
