He got table food all the time, and most nights slept in bed with us. We really miss him, but it was the best for our sanity...
Tough situation. I'm an animal adoption advocate and see this situation often...people 'tiring' of their pets so they ditch them. These sound like training problems, something that could be remedied with time and effort.

But...I spent nearly $1000 on healthcare for one of our cats even though I knew she was being put down within days. I paid $700 to have a towel removed from my dogs small intestine after he ate it. My best friend'* dog has burns over 60% of her body, and she'* getting the dog hair follicle transplants. They are a responsibility, not a possession.

I hate seeing dogs disposed of as they become inconvenient. What about kids? Do people do that with kids?

I'm sorry, I should almost just delete this post, as I'm sure it will come off as an attack, and I truly do not mean to offend you Grimm, or single you out. It is just a rant in general regarding this issue. I just hate to think of all the dogs that end up in shelters/rescue and are euthanized because somebody can't teach their dog to stay off the furniture.

I hope your little guy went to a good home, and I'm sure you did your best to ensure this!

Again, this is *not* a personal attack on you, Grimm. I don't know your personal situation therefore cannot assess the circumstances and I respect your personal decisions.

Here are my 3 spoiled little kitties,
Elwood: He has a bad leg that got broken and fused back into place in the wrong alignment after the vet miss-diagnosed it a nerve damage, he is cute as a button and my favorite


Jake: a sweetheart of a kitty, alot of money was spent on this guy for intensive care surgery to clear up crystals that were blocking his urinary tract


Blue: known to friends as "Satan cat" she is an attention ***** and wont leave you alone once you start petting her, and if you mess with her she rips you apart BAD

Meet Booger, our oldest (real name is Anya, but she got her nickname from a major respiratory infection she had as a kitten). She gets pretty much whatever she wants. We found her as a tiny, tennis ball sized kitten who'd been abandoned by her mother. I picked her up, she looked at my now-husband, and went "MEW!" at the top of her tiny little lungs. She'* had us eating out of her paw since.

This is Bear, our youngest (both cats are just over a year old). She'* a black polydactyl, meaning she has extra toes. I'm an adoption assistant at a local shelter, and she was the first cat I helped to socialize, since she'* so skittish. I showed her to my husband, who had never seen a polydactyl kitty before, and she came home with us that day. She'* been getting anything she wants, too!


She has six toes on each front paw (two on each front act as opposable thumbs, which she has learned to use accordingly) and five on each back paw. Here'* a picture of her front paws:

For good measure, an appropriate shot of the two of them. Booger'* the outgoing, pesty one, and Bear'* very shy and spends a lot of time hiding under the bed.
