Last March our lovely cat teddy passed away he was 16 yrs old. My DH and teddy were best pals and never far from each other. DH has his ashes and says he wants buried with his cat. - when Teddy died DH put himself to bed and cried and cried. It was really upsetting. After that we gave a lot of Teds things away to the cats protection. That made Dh feel a bit better. We still kept a few things thinking one day we may see another cat we might home. Anyhow about 3 weeks back DH asked if we could go back to the Cats protection place. I know he has been very low and missing teds. So I said yes we can look. Well I took myself off to play with some kittens and then there was this little Voice - "he is lovely can I take him home?" It was a 3 yr old male (long hair tabby cat!) ohhhhhh no my heart sank because to be honest I didn't really want us to get another one just yet as I wanted to take time to go away with DH now our disabled lad is going into supported living. But felt I should because he is upset without one and he got me a new Old English pup when my Murphy died on me. So of course I said yes. We went through all of the home checks etc and were allowed to pick up the cat about two weeks ago. He was great for a few days but was not peeing properly. Only 50 pence size wee wee in his cat tray. I said it was not right but DH was defensive and said I was "finding fault with him?" - Anyhow took him to the Vet and he had a urine infection. Spent more money sorting that one out and were told he might have cristals in his wee and we might have to put him on a special diet for life? ( I am thinking ok how much will this cost me?) Man and Cat happy again took them home. Then sat on my seat and got a wet bum! Since then the darling thing has not stopped weeing on my sofa! which I have had to strip down and wash near daily and if I put stuff over it to protect it he wees on the floor. He has not gone outside yet as the CPL said not to let him out for 4 weeks? He has been using his tray most days but if it is at all dirty he looks elsewhere. - usually my sofa (near stretched his neck tonight!) I have spent a lot of time and money making a lovely home here and feel disapointed that it is going to get destroyed by a creature! I am getting fed up with the animal, I am upset and frustrated as I so wanted it to behave and all I can smell is cat pee - Darn! DH just said I should "love on him!" Should I get DH to take the thing back? Would that be really cruel? I am fed up with cleaning poo and wee up and had thought when our disabled son left home yupee no more mess now I have a cat with a puncture? and a DH who has lost his sense of smell !!!!! I have sprayed everything again with pet de-oderizer but I just want to cry because we HAVE A CAT! DH cries when we don't - I have grown to HATE CATS! Wish our Teds was back! Darn why do the good ones die! Help what to do?????
