I am in a real dilema here. I find myself needing to surrender my cat, the problem is that almost all of the no-kill shelters I’ve called are not taking any cats in right now. I have no problem paying a fee, I just want to make sure she is taken care of (not killed in other words).
I have had her for almost ten years, the problem is that she needs alot of attention, attention that I can’t give her anymore. I thought it would be no problem, that, of course, was when I had a husband, now with my son and the other one coming very soon I had to make the decision that she has to go.
She’s been biting my wood doors and window sills, it looks really bad, and I’ve only been here for 4 1/2 months. I don’t need her damaging my house for attention. After realizing what she was doing I’ve put her in the basement at night and when I leave the house, she hates it and I feel terrible, but I have no choice.
Other than this bad behavior she’s a great cat, I’ve never had problems with her before…of course she always had my full attention before. Does anyone have any suggestions or links to no-kill shelters in the Chicago/Elmhurst area that may take her…or would anyone want to adopt her, she’s got her shots is spayed and declawed (she’s always been an indoor cat). Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
