Many visits to the vets, pheromone sprays, anti depressants for the cat, soft paws, extra love, only my son feeding him, my husband doing extra attention, and most recently the cat attacked my son in the face. This is the kindest cat ever too, which is what scares the vet as the attacks are unprovoked. After the face we said "that's it one last chance and he will be supervised 100%" we'll this weekend my son was playing with his Legos quietly and the cat jus walked by, looked and him and attacked, biting and all.... I feel i need to add my son is quiet for a toddler and doesnt harass the cat. Thankfully the vet tech I saw wants him and knows the issues. As a shelter isn't an option for me, it's a death sentence in my mind. (No offense to anyone).
I don't want to give this cat away, but I cannot put my sons safety in risk. I worry for the cat because he is strongly attached to my husband.
Long rant short, how do I tell my son (almost 3 now) He still loves this cat And isn't afraid of him?
Sorry for the typos I am upset beyond words. Thank you. Any advice on how to not feel like a kitty mom failure and to stop feeling so guilty would be helpful.
