EDIT TO ADD: I cannot take my cat with me unless I magically can keep my apartment. The apartment is in my husbands name. They require 2 pay stubs and a credit check to put me on the lease. I just got a job as a teacher, but I don’t get my first pay check until August 31st. My lease expires August 9th. My husband is leaving July 14th. He is moving 350 miles away and refuses to take the cat. If I cannot keep my apartment, I will be moving in with my mother who has two pit bulls. She has told me I cannot take the cat with me, and I don’t think Obi-Wan would do well with them either as they are aggressive towards other animals. I am trying to figure out a way to somehow stay in this apartment and keep Obi-Wan if I can because he is my baby, BUT, if I cannot, I want a GOOD HOME for him with as much love and attention as I can provide.
I LOVE MY CAT. But, I can’t be homeless and keep him either. Being on the streets with a cat doesn’t work, especially not a cat like Obi-Wan who was rescued from the streets in the first place.
My husband and I are separating, and our kitty Obi-Wan needs a new home ASAP! I am in the Frederick, Maryland area, and whoever adopts him needs to be fairly nearby. If we cannot find him a new home, he may have to be put down as I cannot get any shelters in the area to take him, and neither my husband nor I can take him with us in our moves.
Obi-Wan is about five years old. He is very talkative and loves to sit in laps, rub against legs, and sleep next to you in bed. He loves being brushed and played with. Treats for him include catnip and cat treats. He loves to eat little bits of bread from your sandwiches as well. He is super affectionate and needs a loving home that can provide him with lots of attention.
Obi-Wan has some health concerns that mean he cannot live with other pets (small caged pets are OK, but other cats and dogs are not). He may have FIV and stress causes him to develop UTIs. We need Obi-Wan to go to a home that can cover vet costs if they come up. Normally he is in very good health. He eats canned food and gets extra water. We also give him urinary tract health kibble.
Whoever adopts Obi will get ALL of his belongings as well (kitty box, tons of toys, scratching post, etc). Obi is not declawed, but he uses his scratching post and can be redirected to scratch it by using treats. He never tears at rugs or doors unless he is locked in a room (he needs a big open space, because he loves to run around).
PLEASE help me find Obi-Wan a home!
