Well, I went to the shelter I got Willow from this afternoon and picked out a lovely little tortie. I filled the form in and was told I needed Willow's vaccination records which I'd forgotten to take with me. So off I went the 11 miles home to get them only to get back and be told that because I work full time I could not take a cat home as they would be by themselves all day. I told them that my brother lives down the road and can pop in during the day. They said ok but they would need him to meet the cat first. When I got Willow I told them the same but they did not need to meet him then. Although my brother does live down the road he cannot go to the shelter as he is allergic so they probably still wouldn't let me have a cat anyway. I am extremely annoyed and frustrated at this as they have loads of cats needing homes and are having to turn others away as they have no space. The woman who said no to me was the same one who said that my dad couldn't have a dog as he has asthma despite the fact that he has had cats and dogs for the past 25 years.
