I just heard a similar story - with a so so outcome in the sense a good person has "her" cat but she does not. It's a cautionary tale for anyone who adopts a cat without consulting or agaainst the wishes of anyone else who shares the home, especially if they happen to pay most of the bills - and that is usually the case when one lives with parents. A medical student I teach adopted a purebred Birman when her parents were away to NC last winter and her parents were less than thrilled with her action - she naievely thought one the cat was there, they;d change their mind and it worked for awhile but finally, her parents put their feet down so to speak and the cat was surrendered to the local SPCA - a kill shelter. Fortunately, an animal control offocer well known among cat fanciers in the area adopted the lucky kitty. But before you adopt Mosh, please make sure your parents approve and accept him. Any other action will may well result in heartbreak. You are young and will have lots of time when you out on your own to adopt a cat.
