I can't bear the thought of her not being here OR of never seeing her again ..... and I hate to think of her being somewhere else and scared ... or not being able to cuddle her as she really is the most affectionate cat I've ever come across BUT ...... I can't leave things as they are - I've got 3 stressed pets
Mia and Archie have never really got on and have always grumped at each other with the odd big fight. Sadly these have become more & more frequent and more and more vicious.
Mia absolutely HATES other cats and the only thing that I can think that would have made things worse is that I had new neighbours move in around 3 months ago and they have 2 cats - although they didn't go out much to start with, recently I've seen them on the adjoining fence (our gardens attach IYKWIM) and wandering around outside - so she probably has too.
It took her nearly 3 days to calm down after last weeks huge fight - and then she flipped again 2 days later when she saw Archie outside (despite them having touched noses the day before)
She's in the spare room and won't come out - she must feel safe in there. I go up several times a day & leave the door open and she ventures into my room / the other spare room for a couple of mins but then back to the spare room
Archie's too scared to go upstairs (except to fly up, use the litter tray, and come pelting down again) and won't even come upstairs at bed time. Maisie (dog) is now very wary of Mia (as she got stuck in the middle last time) & they were the best of pals before .... not a happy house
I am going to have to try to rehome her ...... it's not fair on any of them ...... she's my baby girl - feel so much like I've let her down and just can't believe it's come to this.
If you can help .... please get in touch
Meantime, I'm trying to come up with some text to put in an ad to take round vets / pet shops etc. Any thoughts please as it's tearing me apart trying to write it
“I’m Mia – I’m 5, neutered, microchipped and up to date on my jabs and mum says I’m really healthy
I love humans - I love to sit on your knee in the evenings and make a great hot water bottle in winter! I love being picked up and cuddled. I’m not too fussy about going out – if you have a garden, I’ll come out for some fresh air (only if it’s sunny and warm!) and help while you’re out there, but I don’t like to be out by myself as it’s very scary.
I need to be an only cat as I really don’t get on with other cats (at all!) they scare me loads and I get very upset if I see them – unfortunately including the other cat who lives here which is why my mum’s having to find me a new home”
I am absolutely heartbroken to be having to rehome Mia – I’ve had her since she was 4 weeks old and she is an absolute sweetheart. Unfortunately my other cat and her have never really got on and started fighting – these have been getting more frequent and more vicious and it’s really not fair on either of them. She does absolutely love my dog and could therefore go to a home with a dog used to cats. Any home will be checked as it’s vital to find the right one for her. If you think you could be Mia’s new human(s), please get in touch xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
