Exactly my question. If you didn't take the cat would she end up just putting it outside? Probably. So why does she feel you have to pay for it?
Guilt is a wonderful thing. That's how I ended up with Benni and Snoopy. The lady said she was going to have them pts if I didn't take them. She probably would have had Benni put down. Benni is not exactly love on four legs. But I love her for all her crankiness. It's also how I ended up with Greyson and gang. Co-worker says I have four cats in my back yard. Help! So I did and she forgot about helping me find homes for them. I am not letting guilt guide me any more.
You don't have the space to take on another cat. You are already fostering. Bless your huge heart for that. You do not need to take on an animal that is her responsibility. That is exactly what I would tell her. When she pulls that "You're an animal lover. You're supposed to help them." you can tell her you do more than your part. You do help them. Doesn't mean you have to help a like her who simply wants to pass the buck and get rid of her responsibilities.
Just because your kids go to a Christian school does not make her Christian.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!
