I posted awhile back about the fact that my cat was starting to act out of control since I had gotten pregnant- using the bathroom in the house and attacking my sons. I got some good advice on having him checked by a vet as well as doing things to reassure him of his place.
I took him to the vet- everything checked out okay. He has gotten better about using the bathroom everywhere, but worse with attacking people. He will even attack me now randomly, and it's gotten so that my boys don't like him much anymore. There have been several occasions that the boys will be on the couch watching TV and the cat will run onto the couch, scratch one, and run away.
I really hate the idea of giving up on him, but I can't risk him hurting the new baby, who will be here anytime, or causing real damage to any of my kids.
I am very leery of taking him to a shelter. If I have to re-home him, what's the best way of going about it to ensure he will get the best love and care possible?

If you are in Washington State Homeward Pet adoption center is a No-Kill shelter. Another option is the resources from Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). Another option is to try and list your cat on petfinder.com.
Good luck. We had to surrender cats once for the safety of the cat and the rest of the family.
