Ugh, I'm so sad. We got an 8 month old kitten a month ago. We've always been "no pet" people, but I got this notion that I wanted a cat and got my girls on board (7 and 2). Well, we wore hubby down who really did not want the cat but reluctantly gave in.
The cat stays in our laundry room and we let her in the finished game room when we're home. She's such a sweet kitten. Great with the girls and snuggly. She listens pretty well and hasn't been destroying my furniture with her claws. But, her farts are HORRID. The shelter sent me another dewormer and I've switched her foods and nothing helps.
I scoop her litter box every day, it's the clumping kind, and I dump it and wash the container once a week.
My husband said the whole basement smelled like cat pee last night. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? I didn't notice it and everything is so clean!
I didn't sleep a wink last night, knowing, it's just not working. I'm not going to have this cat for the next 20 years doing everything by myself, having my house stink, and my husband hate her.
I told my 7 year old this morning, who's sad, but she said, "I guess you're right." She'll be sad when she's gone - but doesn't adore her. She's afraid of the cat...I don't know why. The two year old loves her, and is going to constantly ask where she is. They're buddies.
My husband said it's not fair to the kids to give her back, but I'm not going to be alone in this for the rest of the cat's life. The foster mom said she would aways take her back.
Sorry for rambling. I'm just sad.
