I hate living out here. We found another cat in our backyard, a young ginger tabby. She is not fixed and neither is our male cat from what we can tell (he was another drop off out here and being one eyed we knew he wouldn't get adopted and we have not taken him to the vet yet, we are going to be having a lot done and I would rather pay at once). I know if we keep her the girls will get attached. We do need another cat to deal with the mice, but our cat doesn't seem very rhrilled about the intruder, he is pretty territorial, and I am sure she won't be very happy about the two dogs. Our local shelter is not a no kill shelter, so if we drop her there we may be dropping her off only to be incinerated in a few months. The no kill shelter in the area is forty five minutes away and in a different state. Sometimes living out here sucks. I am not a cat lover by any means, but the idea of leaving the cat at a kill shelter is one that gets me everytime-we have had to drop animals off several times in the past five years if we can't find anyone to take the animals we find. Plus she has fleas.
Update: the person who wanted her got her. We decided that we do need another cat that will not aggravate DH's allergies, so we went to the local shelter and filled out the paperwork to adopt this pretty kitty:
DH held her for a bit and didn't break out, she is a year and a half, and will be fixed before we pick her up. They said she is good with children and other animals, and likes attention.
