We have the opportunity to give her a new home. A new family, where she'd be the only pet, wants to take her. I know it could be a better situation for everyone involved, but my heart is broken. I feel so guilty.
Is it the right thing to do??
I would give it a try with the promise of taking the cat back if THEY want to get rid of her.In the least you can give her one room closed off with food/litter.Might not work out either,but worth a try.Hopefully the new home will work out!
In case anyone was wondering, she went to her new home last Friday. She is adjusting to her new surroundings and is already being affectionate to her new people. She has a little girl who is sooo happy to have her and loves her already! Plus, the mom works with my DH, so we will be able to keep in contact. They know that if it doesn't work out for any reason, we will gladly take her back. But so far, it seems like an ideal situation.
It's definitely more peaceful over here--our other pets seem as if a weight has been lifted off of their shoulders.
I feel sad about it and I miss her terribly, but deep down, I'm pretty certain it was the right thing to do.
