So DH and I are moving cross country soon and are also having baby number 2. The problem is that we don't feel like we are able to give our 9 year old cat the attention that he deserves and think that maybe finding him a new home would ultimately be better for him.
Best case scenario, a friend or family member would be able to take him but it doesn't look like that is an option. I found an older woman on craigslist who wanted another cat and it seemed like a good fit until we took our cat there and discovered that she lived in a small 1 BR apartment and would be a candidate for the show "Hoarders". We literally couldn't even get in the door!
If we can't find him a good home we will definitely bring him with us but would rather avoid having him go through the long trip if we can avoid it. What would you do in our situation?
