I adopted a kitten from the shelter. I have always loved cats & had them my entire life. This is the worst cat I have ever seen! I've adopted cats before the same age and never had these problems. This cat acts like it's on crack. She's climbed up my bare leg twice, climbed the curtains, crapped all over the floor and has harassed my 16 month old from day one. She bite and scratches every one and every thing. She doesn't respond to a water bottle, or any of the usual methods to deter animals from bad behavior. I could deal with the cold she has & cleaning the craps for now if she wasn't so hateful. I know pets require vet visits, but it seems like a lot of money to spend for a terroristic cat! They told me I have so many days to take her back...I think it'd be best for her and us if I did. I decided that if I do I wouldn't take my money back. I feel terrible for thinking it. Could you?
WOW! This cat does sound pretty Psycho! I'm sorry that all of you are going through so much with her- including the cat b/c there has to be something really wrong for it to be acting so Crazy! Usually, i would say NO; i would not take a animal back to the shelter but, in your case- Maybe, i would.......... You have to do what is in the Best Interest of your family- especially, your child! Maybe, a vet could help you figure out what is going on with her- She might just be really scared right now & needs more time to get adjusted to her new home or she may be just to Wild for anyone to handle- i wish i had some answers for you- but, do what is best for you- Wishing you lots of luck!

Nope, once an animal enters my home it is for the life of the animal. I feel that since I have taken on the responsibility of the animal it is for better or worse. Some kittens take a bit longer to settle down then others but I am sure if you gave the cat a chance she wilol. My sister adopted a kitten from me that I had found and was fostering. We had named him Sammy but she added Psychoto the front of his name because he is a wild man and plays rough. He also acts like he has adhd. He is about 6 months now and has settled down a lot. He is still very much a kitten but with consistent training and time he is turning into a pretty cool cat.
