It's sad because they were here before the babes, but I really want to find new homes for my two cats. My mama bear emerges bigtime whenever I find them laying on the kids' stuff -- bedding, clothes, etc. And their hair is EVERYWHERE! So strange how it never ever bothered me before I had kids. DH and I both have allergies, but we've been able to deal with the cat dander pretty well. Now though, Evan is congested all the time and I'm afraid he may be allergic as well.
Here's the worst part. My cats are kinda old, and my "firstborn" only likes me and Evan. She's an evil wench to every other person on the planet. She's made several visitors bleed (their own fault... I warned them). How on earth will I find a home for her?? My only idea so far is to post a sign at the vet with her photo and a "Save this cat!" title. I figure if I'm completely honest about her icky personality, some cat-lover will take pity on her. She'd surly be put to sleep if I left her at the animal shelter.
This has been on my mind for a long time (even before Drew was born). My MIL, out of the blue, commented the other day that she's concerned about the cats' effect on the babes.
