Weâ€™ve talked about finding Arek a new home, and we had finally found the â€œperfectâ€ home for him. But Iâ€™m having second thoughtsâ€¦ guys, I just donâ€™t think I can do it. Arek is MY CAT!!! I just canâ€™t give him up - I just canâ€™t! Even my husband (who is NOT a cat person) was telling me that heâ€™d rather give up any of the other cats before heâ€™d want to give up Arek. I donâ€™t know why I love him so much, when he wants nothing to do with me, but I DO! And I donâ€™t think I can let him go. Does that make me a bad person??? I donâ€™t think heâ€™s miserable here. I DO think he might do better in another home, but he and Shakhar are getting along better, they were even sleeping together today! Who knowsâ€¦ in a few years he might come out of his shell and be just fineâ€¦ heâ€™s only been here for about five months, maybe he just hasn't had enough time to really settle in? I donâ€™t know what to do!!! I just CANâ€™T let him go!!! And you were all saying how unselfish I was being, and how good it was to put his needs before myself, but here I am thinking I just canâ€™t do it. Couldnâ€™t I keep him for a while longer and see what happens???!!! Am I a horrible person for wanting to keep him?
