So Long and Thanks for All the Food Pellets

We’ve decided that Max has to go. Kate has been calling no-kill shelters this week, and it’s time for him to go. We can’t wait around for someone to adopt him. After the move out of Savage to Chaska, his peeing issues stopped until recently. Now he’s peeing in the house again. That means it’s time for him to go. So be it. I’ll miss the guy a great deal, and it’ll be tough to see him go, but it’s for the best. He’s not happy in the environment and he needs a better situation.

With him gone, we’ll be down to four. Kate still thinks that’s too many (and I agree), but I want to see how things go after Max is gone. Happy’s getting up there in the years and has been losing weight at a pretty good clip, so I can’t imagine that he’ll be around too much longer. So that would get us down to three, which is a much more manageable number — and who the hell knows how long Vinnie will last after Happy’s gone? He might die of a broken heart.

  1. Why must you get rid of him? I have had cats with urinary problems and the vet helped me get that under control. I had an overweight cat with food issues and one of the things the vet told me is to feed them controlled amounts of wet food, never dry food, as that is like feeding them potato chips, not much protein, lots of carbs. Makes them fatter. Do you know how much you are going to break this poor kitty’s heart when he is taken to a shelter? One shouldn’t own cats if you cannot be bothered to work with them and send them away because they aren’t perfect. I passed on your facebook post so that maybe someone with a true heart will take him and care for him even though he has some problems.

    • Because these are all issues we had tried to solve. Fortunately, we were able to find a vet with a no-kill program. However. Based on his personality and his character, they made him the clinic cat. He greets new arrivals, hangs out with the cats waiting for adoption, and generally adds to the ambiance of the place.
