    This is really pretty sad actually. I can't keep my two cats in my house and they're really the only things left that i care about in this world. I've gotten stupid reasoning about them not being able to be in the house, like they'll steal the breath from babies...there are no, and won't be any babies in my house. People are odd, what can I say?

    Well in a matter of a few weeks the people who are holding them at the moment will need to get rid of them, by either putting them up for adoption, finding someone else, or just letting them go outside. They are also needing to get rid of and find home of there 14 cats along with my two.

    Basically the only solution i can seem to come up with at the moment is to get a rather large cage to hold them in for hopefully a short period of time in my garage. I would let them roam free in the garage without a need for a cage, but i have been trying for months now to get it cleaned up, and it not being my stuff out there there is not much i can do. There are shards of sharpened metal and glass, screws, nails, motor oil, and other various mechanical and electronic dangers. At least i know that if they were there they would be safe albeit confined and i'd be able to give them the attention that they need and the care they deserve.

    I'm having troubles finding an enclosure that isn't so expensive that it would set me back a few weeks, $400-800 is definately a bit much.

    Would anyone happen to know anywhere to get an appropriate enclosure, or have any other suggestions for this dilemna? I really need to keep these two precious animals in my life.

    I dont understand..
    why cant they live in your house?

    "I've gotten stupid reasoning about them not being able to be in the house, like they'll steal the breath from babies"

    is that the ACTUAL reason why they cant stay in your house? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    Scot,
    People can be very unreasonable, and maybe they just don't want the cats because they don't like them. Who cares? Point is they have to go. Big V is trying to get some help from any potential cat lovers here.

    And HEY!
    I have my address in my signature line, too. You got beef? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    That was one of the many reasonings. Basically the owner of the house (my uncle) and my father are being extremely adamant on the situation. They don't like cats and don't want them in the house, so they are making up and reaching for any excuse they can possibly come up with. But yes, that's one of the reasons i was told.

    There reasoning is really less of importance than the actual solution that I need to come up with.

    And my address is in my sig because i like to make myself available to contact.

    yeah! I do! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    its just that in this day and age, I wouldnt want my address listed for the whole world to see!
    of course, if anyone wanted my address, im sure they could dig it up without too much trouble..but why make it easy for them? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    Vertigo,
    wow, that sucks..im sorry they are being so unreasonable..
    Is moving an option?
    I am getting married to a major cat lover..she has one cat, had the cat for 10 years.
    If I didnt like the cat, I would go, not the cat.
    (and I agree with that! she simply wouldnt date anyone who hates cats, not an option.)
    If someone said she couldnt keep the cat in her apartment, she would move, no question.

    of course, if its a medical matter, like a severe allergy, then that is different..but if people are saying you cant keep the cats just because THEY have an unreasonable issue, move!
    IMO the cats are more important than the apartment and the hassle of unreasonable demands..
    lose the humans, keep the cats.

    get some 2x4's and some chicken wire and you could throw together a secure decent sized pen for them with lil trouble and expence. even if yah dont have the tools i bet a friend can loan yah a saw, drill, wire cutter and stapler. prolly take yah half a day if you dont have much experiance and really get after it.

    I found my own address on-line with 3 clicks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    (due to my own carelessness..I have my last name on a ton of my webpages)
    I noticed I DONT have my last name listed in my PFT profile, good right?
    well, I have my first name, username and location listed.
    a google search for scot scottychaos rochester
    brought up my last name instantly.
    google search for "white pages"
    and there I am! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
