About that.... my ex roomie Katie finally had her baby a while ago (she was 4 weeks overdue or something) and was recently telling me that Max seemed to be avoiding her baby. She thought he was jealous and then decided to give him away as soon as she delivered.

Yep, it is. She'd been wanting to get rid of him for a while, ever since she got pregnant. Apparently, while I was gone for the summer, he was AGAIN locked out of the house and the poor thing peed in the basement. She had to clean it up and that made her want to get rid of him even more.

I asked her, "What if your baby peed somewhere and you had to clean it up? Would you give HER away?"

She was silent.

Babydoll, your ex-rommie doesn't sound as if she's much of a cat owner, so maybe Max's new people will be better. I know everyone else seems to think her giving him away is awful, but if she's a rotten owner, then it's worse for her to keep him. The cat should have competent owners who love and care for him.

I agree that she should never have gotten the cat in the first place if she wasn't prepared to care for him, but given that she obviously isn't prepared to do that, her keeping him would just exacerbate the situation. And that would be even less fair for the cat.

I still have a stray living under the bushes outside my apartment. I'm probably moving in October, but I want to see if I can get the shelter where I got Jack to take her before I go. I know my landlords won't pay any attention to her, so she's better off at the shelter (it's a great, no-kill one) once the weather starts to cool off.

Well said. And hopefully they will find a home for her.

U2democrat, best wishes for you and Chloe. I think she will be much better after her gums heal!

All my cats are strays (and I have a couple more who come around every day for food and attention) and some are still very wary even years after becoming an "official" member of my household. I still love them all though.
I think that's a good thing though. Before I moved house we also looked after strays that lived there, luckily our neighbour liked cats also and she continues to care for them, but they still remain wary of other humans to this day. There are a lot of people who don't like cats and will go out of their way to harm them so I think it's for the best that they learn not to be so trustworthy of humans!

Ugh I feel SO guilty about not being able to be there for Chloe. She's never been through anything like this

They'll take good care of her. I don't imagine you would be able to be present for the surgery, but she'll be glad to see you when you go to take her home!

I can't though, I'm away at school! That's why it's so hard.
