What do you do with a problem like Zed?

Zed is the kitty that just won’t go away. The incredibly understanding SIL called at 8am and informed us that Zed was not going to be able to stay with them.

I don’t think it was the fact that he peed on their daughter’s bed that was the problem. The problem was that he decided he was going to bite the SIL and not let go. The biggest animal lover I know has decided that Zed is too much work.

So, what do we do now? We can’t take him to the Women’s Humane Society because they won’t accept a problem kitty like him. We told the SIL to boot his ass outside (she takes care of a bunch of outside kitties already), but she said there were too many un-neutered males in her apartment complex and that Zed would get really hurt. We can’t put him outside at our place because he will just sit there and cry and get into a fight with one of several neighborhood cats he fought with last time he got out. He’s honestly not an outdoor kitty anyway.

We tried reaching out to some other animal rescue groups, but everyone is full up on cats right now. We’re at our wits end about what to do about Zed. I was so relieved to have him out of the house. But now it looks like he might have to come back in again. For the short term, he may be confined to the nursery with a shower curtain on the bed so he hopefully doesn’t destroy the bed in there. It’s so frustrating. I never figured things would have gotten so bad with the SIL so fast. UGH!!!!!!

R will have to decide what we do and I’ll have to live with his decision when I get home from work.

It feels like the work day will never end, but isn’t it always that way before a long weekend? I’m all anxious about the Zed situation and the whole website thing.

Still haven’t seen the boss today. I don’t think he planned on coming in but he can’t see the beta website externally, so I now feel like he might show up now that there’s only 2.5 hours left in the day.

R is really cranky because of the Zed situation, he’s putting a real damper on the Thanksgiving preparations. There will be 10 of us instead of 7. SIL found out today that she’s not allowed to travel for the rest of her pregnancy (she’s due in late January), so in the end, they are spending Thanksgiving with us after all. We have plenty of food and plenty of room, so it’s not a problem. I feel bad that my in-laws won’t get to see them though.

Now, I’m just waiting to see if the boss shows up and if I get stuck here late and what’s awaiting me at home Zed-wise. I need a drink, that’s all I know for sure.

    What ended up happening? I’ve been thinking about this and sending you good vibes, hoping it turns out the way it’s supposed to…which is hopefully “WELL”…
    Happy belated Thanksgiving, too! 🙂

    • Zed is living in our house and we have closed all the bedroom doors. This still leaves the opportunity for him to pee on couches and pillows, but he hasn’t done that yet. R posted a free kitty ad on freecycle and craig’s list and I think he put Zed’s name on a list to turn him in at a shelter that’s no kill. I hope that you had a very Happy thanksgiving. 🙂
