d.manuk 410 Posted January 16, 2017 Author Share Posted January 16, 2017 (edited) I gave away my cat yesterday. It was my idea to adopt him 2 years ago, but I came to realize that my allergies and the other negatives of owning a cat outweighed the positives, even though he is a very good cat and I loved him immensely. I was not his first owner. At times, he was my best friend... and although he wasn't always #1, he was always at least #2. My boyfriend took this news very hard as well but we eventually settled on giving Nico to someone else. We have both come to terms with this decision and are in the process of moving on, although I still cried this morning. I didn't want to live another possible 12 years with not being able to breathe through my nose and being mildly itchy. I gave Nico a lot of love and what I hope were a good 2 years for him, and I hope that the people that took him are more mature than me and will love him even more than I did and for the remainder of his life. He seemed to like the new owners more than us, so I also felt less guilty and sad about the decision. I love you and wish you the best, Nico. Shining Heart Goals:Initiate conversations with 10 people I haven't spoken to. Progress: 2/10Be open with 10 people about things I would normally be embarrassed or self conscious about. Progress: 3/10The new owners for Nico wanted to think about the decision and come back the next day. I spoke up and told them my feelings that I would prefer if they made the decision the same day, because I did not want to think about Nico leaving me for another day. They agreed that made sense, and then decided to take him. Edited January 16, 2017 by Shine Magical Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
