Free to GREAT Home

Well, it looks as though Monkey may be alergic to the cats. This means that they have to go and soon. I am beyond upset about this as these cats have been my best-est friends for over 8 years now.

They are seriously wonderful felines and are incredibly well behaved. Both are de-clawed (hey, don't yell at me - they lived with my mom for a while when I moved into a complex that didn't allow cats and she had them de-clawed. However, neither seems to get that they have no claws - they still pretend scratch our plastic laundry baskets). They will not touch any food left on the counter, ever. And they are super cuddly.

I have been totally torn up about this and I really am reluctant to give them away until we know for sure that Monkey is actually alergic to the cats. At this point, our dr. has told us that the cats are most likely the cause and she is currently at a higher SIDS risk because of her breathing issues, so the faster we get them out of the house, the better. So, the best case senario would be to have someone take them long enough for me to clean the house from top to bottom and see if it makes a difference to Monkey's breathing issues. If it is the cats that she is allergic to, then it would be nice if the foster mom or dad could adopt them for good.
Sigh. This is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, but if it has to be a choice, I need them to go to a good, loving home. Hopefully this will help the decision become easier.

Oh, Trish, I'm so sorry to hear about your kitties. :( Here's hoping that they get to a great home with lots of visitation rights.

I'd help you out, but with two dogs, a rabbit, an anti-social cat, a baby and a husband, it doesn't look good.

I would totally help you out but with Mike hating/being allergic to cats there is no way.
I'm sorry I know how much you love them. Hopefully a wonderful family with lots of boxes will take them!
