Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by honey bear.
me and my fiance recently needed to re-home our kitten we’d had for three and a half months, colby jack. he was a hand raised kitten so he was very rambunctious, which to me and my fiance was somewhat difficult, seeing as we both work and i have a myriad of health issues, but the issue lied most within my other cats.. i have an eighteen year old cat whom ive owned almost his entire life and was a feral stray, and a ten year old cat that has very bad compulsive behaviors because of her abusive past. (plus, she hates sharing, and would lash out at colby for wanting to play). i saw that he wasn’t able to spend his energy as well he could have because of these factors, and we discussed rehoming for a little while. he was such a sweet kitty, so loving and he would follow you around the house and purr the whole time. his presence was a gift of life and energy to our lives but it proved to be too much to our other cats most of all, and i wanted them to be happy and comfortable, too. the couple we found for him is amazing, and we can even get pictures, but i still can’t keep myself from crying when i see one of his toys when i clean, or when i go to feed the cats and there’s only two. i know his life will be better and his new owners adore him so very much. i do too and i miss him dearly.. i hope everyone reading finds some solace in their pain as well, and thank you for this, sincerely
