We rescued a litter of kittens about 3 yrs ago (3 boys 2 girls). Well, the one boy (Beta male) got violent so we had to get rid of him. The other boy (Omega Male) is still shy and scared of us after all this time, Dunno why, but I have given up trying with him. He's not a people cat, and I'd be happy not wasting resources on him anymore, but my DH seems to like him and doesn't wanna give up just yet. Its been 3 yrs, the cat isn't going to change.
His remaining bro (Alfa male) and sisters are very social and friendly and loved right in front of him, but he still spooks and hides. Hate cats like that. Thats not what having a pet is about (to me).
I wanna give the cat a new home, anything I can do that will appease the DH? I considered doing it during one of his business trips, but that might be too underhanded.

I am on your dh's side. If I gave up on my Siamese who hates everyone, I would feel like I failed her. She has her moments when she is nice. I have had her for over 15 years. I have a new cat, a Russian Blue, and they are like tempered to the Siamese, he only likes me and runs from everyone else. Sometimes you get a pet that is not the perfect pet, but you knew that when you rescued these kittens. I would not get rid of the cat while dh is away on a trip. What an awful way to come home to.
