The daughter of a friend of mine who I have known since she was three (she is now 35) has a cat that she is talking about rehoming. She first asked her mother to take her, but she has a Bengal who does not like other cats. It seems the poor little thing spends most of her time shut out in the cold. They lock the cat flap so she can't get in, because she brings in mice. That means she is outside all day when no one is home and all night as well. She is barely allowed inside. She has a place inside, but once out she can't get back in. All this because the husband hates cats and she keeps pouncing on the childrens' feet. She has little human contact, and I have told her that I will take her. I have told her the arrangements I have in place for a cat, and she knows I have always had dogs and cats together. But she is worried about the dogs! I suggested she look up newfoundlands on the internet to substantiate what I said that they are well known for being gentle with smaller animals, they have no prey drive, and I am not likely to just chuck them in together with no supervision. She knows very well how well cared for my animals are, she has been my daughter's best friend since they were three. I also believe that a cat that spends most of her time outside is going to be well versed in defending herself against dogs. All I can do I suppose is let her think it over. I don't want to pressure her, or she might get obstinate and decide not to let me have her, but the poor little thing needs a proper home. Don't know what else I can do. Her mother has told her the cat would be better off with me as well, so that is where I am, worrying about this little cat.
