    UGH! Today at the shelter I work at a lady came in with her kitty in a carrier and said she wanted to return her cat because she was "about to go to church yesterday when the cat jumped up on the counter and knocked down the bowl of cereal" that was for her daughter.. "there was milk everywhere.." She was crying!

    This made me so angry! People like this shouldn't have pets or kids! It's a rubbish reason to give up an innocent pet.

    OMG How ridiculous, the cat will be better off in a home where its allowed to be a cat,its just a shame it had to endure living with that silly cow. Hope it finds its new forever home soon.

    My god, that's ridiculous!

    Sky broke a precious ornament that my brother gave me before he died and yes I was angry but I would never dream of returning her to the breeder we got her from!!

    Was a homecheck done previously - when we homecheck our prospective owners we always say that if you are precious about your furniture or ornaments then don't take a cat!!

    I hope the cat finds a loving home soon.

    I was asked the same before rehoming Timmy, I don't have any breakables that I would be too concerned about and I know how mischevious they can be, after having a horse that had a habit of drowing my mobile phones in his water buckets and previously having dogs and cats. I would be more worried about them hurting themselves if they broke anything rather than my property.

    I wonder if she would have got rid of the child if she had dropped the bowl of cereal and scared the cat?? :mad:

    unbeliveable:eek:hmy: when we were looking around for a cat and went to a rescue one was in there for being too independent!! couldnt believe that one either!!, did the person not realise this before getting it in the first place. Hope the cat you have finds a new home soon, and this lady is not allowed any animals.

    That's exactly what I was just thinking!!! Unbelievable, some people :mad:

    It's just as well that cat was returned to the Shelter before it suffered too much living with eejits like that. Imagine that woman's dismay (and tears??) the first time the cat made mucky pawprints on her floors, brought in a mouse etc.

    Hope that lovely cat finds a forever home soon where it'll be allowed to be a cat!!

    Ha ha ha - shouldn't laugh but yes, quite!!! No matter how much I hoover and mop the laminate and lino there's always hairs around. No word of a lie, I found some in the freezer when I defrosted it the other day :D

    Wouldn't have it any other way though!!!

    Just remembered cat vomit as well, imagine the crisis that would have caused with that woman :eek:

    My mum has 9 cats, my god living with them was a challenge! Talk about assault course! :D

    I wish I could have my two cats with me, but it wouldn't be fair to take them away from the others :(

    Go for it, just remember not to sit down without checking what's below you and don't expect a moments peace while you're eating pmsl!!!

    I love my dogs, but sometimes it's not the same :( Cats are and always will be my first love :eek:

    He he he - sounds perfect conditions for me. Does your mum live in beautiful wales as well? That'd be the icing on the cake - think the whole of Wales is just glorious :)

    It is ridiculous but we shouldn't complain as at least she took it to a safe place and didn't just dump or abandon it somewhere, or just never let it in again like the bloke up the road from me, coz he's cat pooed indoors once, it hasn't been let in since!

    my cats drive me mad, and Shmitty STINKS so badly, but I love them!!
