2 declawed cats/MTL/URGENT

These two girls are declawed sisters who have been together their whole lives. Their owner has a new girlfriend who is upset that their white fur shows up on the furniture and has ordered them gone.

Of course, the guy who owns them just LOOOOOVES them so much he doesn't really want to kill them, but well, he will if they aren't adopted.

Gee, wonder if this guy would scrape up some guts if the g/f told him to get rid of his computer, golf clubs or something else he really cares about?

I'm speechless...actually, Lucky, I was thinking another part of his anatomy must be missing, gnawed off by the new GF no doubt.
Is he at least willing to hang on to them until they are placed?

I think we'd unanimously agree that were it any of us, the new girly would have to go....

Oh, he should definitely get rid of the girl!! If anybody ever gave me an ultimatum(sp?) like that, he'd be gone so fast - and yes, even if it were Brad Pitt!!!

I don't know if he is willing to try this, but having them shaved (lion clip) really reduces the fur loss. They won't see any fur for atleast 3 months after....just a suggestion....

He's in a hurry. He says its getting more "urgent" as time goes by as the cats (being mostly white) shed quite a bit even if they are brushed often. Yep, they definitely deserve to die!

Nope. He just wants to get rid of them, as the g/f doesn't like cats in general.

If anyone knows of any solution or anyone wants these two sweeties, please pm me for the contact info.

Get a damn white couch so the hair doesn't show....but I would vote for getting rid of the girlfriend. Once the demands start there is not end.

Are you sure he has a girlfriend? Maybe the so and so is using her as an excuse. They look wonderful, wish I was there.

Not too much time left. They should be adopted together, but to save their lives, I imagine they can be separated.

Thanks poodletalk!! I"m PMing you with contact info.

I have peeked a few peoples interest today about these cats, they need to go home and speak to their wives. I am also working on a foster home for them. ( I think they may end up seperated though )

To some cats being seperated may mean an early death. I have seen it. If you are looking for a foster home, I wouldn't mind taking them in together. I currently live with a lab, and 3 cats and 3 kids that have always known me to bring in ferrel scared cats, so they do know how they need to behave. I you think you have to seperate them please Please feel free to email me. I really don't want to see them seperated especially if all they have is themselves for comfort and familiarity.

Thanks to both of you!!

I would not like to separate them, but as I said, it's better than dying together.

cpietra, this could be a long term thing if you foster them. I have them listed on my site, but no guarantees. They're a little timid, and probably haven't seen a dog before.

If you still want to take them on, pm me your tel# and I'll have the person at CASCA who is trying to help them call you to discuss!

If it gets really desperate LR, let me know - I can manage getting to Mtl or having my sister bring them with her (if they don't mind Spenser, her doggie) when she comes to visit over the holidays. My cousin is also coming from Mtl and driving tho he has two Border Collies - and there are other ppl I know in Mtl, a the son of one of the docs is at McGill but is coming home by VIA I think - would these kitties manage a train trip (I know many of the conductors - they are very good with cats specially if you get the Ocean Limited) There is also that plane ticket that I have ti use and now that airline is not flying as close to me as before but they would get them to northwestern NB and I could meet them. Just thinking out loud here.

CyberKitten...it sounds like you can offer them a home together; or am I reading too much into it?? ALL I can do right now is foster. I just don't want them seperated.
LUcky Rescue..I will pm you my number, but if Cyberkitten can offer a home thats even better.

Wow, CK, that's an amazing offer! Does your sister have room for two large cages plus all her stuff in her car? (I don't know where the cages would come from unless their stupid owner will spring for them which I doubt!) Is she driving straight through?

Who would be taking them in? Do you want 5 cats? And would it be permanent?

I'm just basically passing messages here so it's a bit difficult but I'm thrilled at the offers.

Going to try and get more info today!

she is a great person, and has become a very wonderful friend. If anyone can be trusted with these cats to foster it is her. Her dog does not care about the cats, so they will not be scared of her. I wish these cats happiness together, and I can not wait to meet them both.

Just wanted to update on the cats....their names are jealousy and greed, but since I have met them, they are everything but....needless to say I really feel the need to change their names. Anyway they are great and both lick and purr, that is what they do best...lick and purr, lick and purr. They have been in my house for a few hours and so far they have come out of hiding, met the cats and the dog and although there was growling on both parts I think they seem to get along. I am only fostering, but I think they are just about the friendliest cats around. I also found out that the guy that gave them away is truly heartbroken and had a real hard time giving them up. As for the cats they are happy and together
Cyberkitten if you still want to offer them a home let me know.

No, that's fine cia - if you want the girls and it may be lss stressful for them than travelling with my sister.(Not to suggest that trevalling with my sister is stressful, lol - I meant to convey that travel is stressful for kitties, period!!) LR, she would have purchased carriers for them since I would need them anyway!! But its OK, I am just happy they have homes!!! Lucky girls!!! Now if I can find a blue point meezer, lol

Oh and I think they definitely needed a name change!! Poor babies!

Cpietra,thank you,tears are flowing freely here,but it's because of the wonderful person you are:love:
The former owner will one day realize he made a big misstake,the day this girlfriend decide to demand something else for him to give up,not a good start of a relationship.He might feel bad,but basically he is a snivelling coward IMO:sad:

"Jealousy" and "Greed" ? Well soon he will find out those names are more befitted to his GF, as she sucks more and more of the life and love out of him.
Well I guess one expects this kind of things from declawers anyway ( declawers have a very high Dump rate) . Thanks for saving them cpietra.

"Jealousy and Greed"?? Seriously??

Anyway, I know of an older man who is lonely and looking for the company of sweet and lovable kitties. I'll pass on these babies!

Sorry to sound cynical, but someone who would have his cats killed because his girlfriend doesn't like fur on the furniture is not nearly heartbroken enough.

Merry Christmas to him, the loser.

Yeah, anybody who can threaten to kill two animal he "loves" right before Christmas definitely does not know the meaning of heartbroken.
