...that when I adopted my two boys, it was for the long term, with all that entails. I was speaking to my mother the other day, and we got around to talking about when I was going to be moving back home to Australia, and when I told her the current expected time frame (about 15-18 months hopefully), she asked what we were going to be doing with the boys when we moved. I'm sorry but how is that even a question....What am I going to do, I'm going to pack them in a crate and put them on a plane is what I'm going to do. Yes it will end up costing as much or more to get the boys to Australia as it will cost for hubby & I to get there, (add to which they have to spend a month in quarantine), but that was one of the things we discussed and planned for before we got the kittens. It's not like the moving thing was a new idea - we've been planning it since before I moved here. If we hadn't been prepared to take the boys with us, then no way would we have adopted them in the first place. People wouldn't suggest you get rid of your children when circumstances change yet they seem to think nothing of getting rid of pets when it becomes inconvienient to keep them.
