I received this from a teacher I used to work with. I don't know how to answer without a touch of anger coming thru. Any ideas?
Hi Peggy! How are you? I saw your plea for yarn. Unfortunately I don't have any scrap but I'll buy you some if you know what I can do with my cat! He's a 6 year old Tabby. He is extremely affectionate, funny, playful, good with kids, and likes other small animals (cats & dogs). The problem is that I can't keep him in the house anymore. I had Pergo put in the house in March. Before that he often peed on the carpet (despite a clean litter box, going outdoors, trips to the vet, fake pheromones, sprays, etc) so I had to get rid of the carpet. I could not afford tile and was given Pergo so I went with it. Unfortunately he is continuing his nasty habit (behavioral per vet) on the Pergo so he is only allowed in the house when we can watch him. Now he spends most of his time in the garage (door propped open) or outside. I keep the radio on, fan, toys, soft spots, etc but it's not ideal. He's a lap cat and really needs company. Maybe he could be a barn cat, but don't know anyone who has a farm or stable. Do you? On top of all this my boyfriend of 4 years is allergic to cats. We don't live together but are talking about it. I feel really terrible about the cat, but don't know what to do. Any ideas? I've attached his photo. His name is Quidditch (from Harry Potter). I need the cat whisperer! :)
