My BFing group has a resident BF hater, these people must REALLLLYYYY not have a life. LOL.
I understand how frustrating it is, and of course your child is your priority, but yes, I do feel it is wrong. When you get a pet, you accept responsibility for them the rest of their lives.
From what you have posted it does not seem like the cats are doing anything wrong. IF they were becoming aggressive or peeing, then that's another story (although even then I would treat the behavior, not get rid of the cat).
I think you need to take a deep breath. Do you live with any other adults, a hubby? Sit down and let them know you are having a hard time dealing with above said issues, and ask if they would mind chipping in for a while scooping litter, keeping hairballs and vomit cleaned up, etc.
Don't punish your kitties for doing absolutely nothing wrong, please please.
And, good luck to you.
