The Cat Came Back

A few months ago we adopted a cat from the animal shelter.

While the kids and I loved this cat, who is very sweet, fat, and well-mannered, he and my husband didn't get along. So after several months, I tearfully and guiltily took the cat back. I felt like such a bad mom.

But my husband was happier, and that's all that really mattered.

Saturday morning at 5 a.m., the cat came back.

Either he escaped the animal shelter, or someone adopted him and he found his way back to our house.

Now I feel even worse because this cat thinks we are his family. He thinks this is his house. Today I get to do the fun task of taking the cat back--again.

Sigh.

Oh :( That would be SO hard.

Maybe the cat can stay? :)

Cats are amazing, the way they can find their way back places. And you can take it back to the shelter, but if it gets out again, it will probably come back.

that kind of commitment didn't soften Mark up at all? Maybe he'd be willing to let it stay now...

don't envy you. I feel guilty just imagining myself in your shoes. Good luck, and don't be ashamed if you cry... I definitely would.

I can sympathize with Mark. I feel like he needed at least one supporter.

LOL guys. yeah, I sympathize w/ Mark too. But I did feel guilty. And no, we're not keeping him!
