Hey everbody. I'm a little blue today. Thought I'd share and see what others have to say. I'm getting married in 2 weeks. My kitty, Josie, is quite a challenge. She grew up with only me and she's very attatched to me. She's an alpha cat, persnickity princess, I want love on my terms, and when I want something, you get it for me now kind of cat. It's no secret that my fiance isn't too terribly fond of her, because she hisses at him all the time. He plays with her, gives her treats, etc. but she still hasn't totally warmed up to him. We are concerned about her behavior when children come along, but we're considering that a bridge we'll cross when we have to. Yesterday, both of my parents (at different times) tried to talk me into giving her up. They said she filled a void in my life and now that I'm getting married, I won't be alone anymore. I'm very concerned about taking her back to the humane society, if I had to. I asked the vet about this at her last visit. He said that if things didn't work out and I had to take her back there, she'd probably be deemed unadoptable and be put down because of her tempramental personality. I'd feel AWFUL with that hanging over my head if I had to do that. I love her DEARLY but the only person she really likes and gets along with is me. My fiance is willing to take her in because I get so upset when even discussing giving her up. Getting rid of her would make everyone else happy and just destroy me. What do I do?????
