: ( – Me
I realize he is a cat and not a child.
I realize he is better off in a home that has another cat that can play with him.
I realize the new owners are a wonderful young couple that I thoroughly checked out.
I realize they invited us to visit any time.
I realize it is far more important that my 5 year old son be safe and comfortable in his own home.
I realize all that.
But holy crap, this hurts.
Yes, I "re-homed" our cat today. After many months of increasing agression towards my youngest child, I found the cat a really good home.
You realize the last time I left a living thing with another person, right?
I thought so.
You can imagine the state I am in tonight.
