Hi guys. I know this is a longshot, but I need some help, and I thought maybe someone could help me.
I have a cat, her name is Tasha. I named her after Black Widow, because Avengers had just come out and she was both all black and did a lot of parkour when she was a kitten. I got her during my rough pregnancy when I couldn’t walk, and having her around really got me through it. We are both extremely attached to each other.
A couple weeks ago I found out my wife was having an affair, and I have to move back home with my toddler to North Carolina, to live with family. My family has been really hesitant at me keeping her, especially if she’s an indoor only cat, which she’s been her whole life, and I feel that being outdoors isn’t safe for cats, or the native wildlife. Also, if they changed their mind once I’m down there, all shelters in the area are kill shelters, so I refuse to take that chance.
My (soon to be ex)wife has offered to keep her until I have my own place, but she doesn’t take good care of her- when she has to do it on her own, she doesn’t really change the litter, forgets to feed her, will go days without refreshing her water. I don’t feel it’s right to leave Tash with her just because I don’t want to give her up.
It’s a long shot, but is there anyone in the Boston area, or Massachusetts/NH border who can foster a cat for a while? We’d have to work out if it’d be possible with the specifics of the whole thing, but I’m just desperate to see if I can find someone to watch her until I can get settled. She’s spayed, and I can pay for her food and litter costs.
If worst comes to worst, we have a great shelter here and I know she’ll be placed in no time, but I just don’t want to give her up, especially since we’re so attached to each other.
Thanks, and if you can reblog this around, that would be really helpful.
