Please don’t send hate mail…. please don’t tell me what a horrible, unfeeling cat mother I am… I know that once you adopt an animal you are promising them a ‘forever’ home… but life brings changes and I feel that this decision is to enhance the lives of my cats!
After many months of contemplation I have come to the heart breaking conclusion that I need to find my three devons another home. Very long story short, I’ve had Max (my 11 year old) since he was a baby. I got him with his brother, Mulligan. Mully died when they were 5 years old (from a severe rabies vaccination reaction), and a few months after that I gave birth to my first child. Max was very sad and unhappy. All he wanted was to be on my lap, or on my head, or on my shoulders, but those places were now taken up with a baby. We moved a lot in the 4 years to follow and finally decided, last year, that it was time to get Max some playmates. So, we adopted 2 more devons (a 5 year old mama and her kitten). They have all become fast friends and love each other, but now I have 3 devons that only want my lap, and guess what… I have a new baby. Every time I sit down to nurse him there are three cats pushing him aside and trying to get love. They won’t go to my husband or my daughter for affection, and my arms are always full. So, for the past year, no one has been happy, and I feel SO guilty. They follow me around and meow for affection. I’ve been thinking about it and talking it over with my family for months now, and finally decided that they would be happier in another home with someone who could compeltely dote on them. I also think it’s important that they go to a family that has had devons or atleast knows and understands their idiosynchcracies. They are crazy cats… not like a standard aloof cat! They love attention and want to be with you 24/7, they are talkative, energetic, and require (insist on) your affection.
Like I said, Max is 11 and in good health. He’s a bit overweight, but he is also big for a devon. Max has allergies for many standard cat foods, so he gets raw rabbit that I get from the local pet food store. Isabella is 6 and in great health. Daisy (the kitten) is 17 months and gets ‘goopy eye’ occassionally. The vet said it is a type of cat herpes (not conatagious)…. when ever she gets it, I put a little lysine in her food and it goes away. Otherwise she is also in great health.
I would like them to go to a home together.
Are you someone who could be a devoted and overly affectionate devon parent??? Will you let them sleep on your head and sit on your shoulders? Will you talk back to them when they meow at you? Will you mind them being at your feet? Please email if you think you can give them a good home!
