ok well this woman took them both but her mother (who she lives with) rang and pretended to be her asking how much her bill was (over $1000) and then she let the nurse at work know it was the mother and that she didn't want the kittens. Karen (nurse) explained that they were sick and would need treatment and if she didn't want them to bring them back to us so we could find a home for them and get them treated. So I might end up with them or the mother might cave in and let her daughter keep them....I'm not sure. I'll let you guys know!

Ha! And her mother has control over her? I'm only 18 and my mom doesn't say anything about what I have. I usually don't tell her when I'm getting something anyway it's just a little pleasant surprise. She doesn't really care as long as I take care of it. It sounds to me like you'd take care fo them better than this person could if the mother is acting like that.

Angel this woman can look after animals quite well....she has her heart in the right place when it comes to animals her mum just needs to help her with finances. Her mum was okay with her having one cause their cat went missing a couple of weeks ago but she wasn't happy about the two of them but I haven't heard anything so far so I'm assuming they are keeping them both. It's better this way...I couldn't keep them, not even one of them, and finding them a permanent home was my plan....it just turned out to be easier than I thought!!!
I rang my bf earlier to pre warn him and he told me that it was okay cause it was my job to take in the strays as long as they were only temporary. what he doesn't know is that everyone else got half their pets for taking home strays and falling in love with them

Yeah I see what you mean. My mom gets kinda 'grr' about my animal's expenses sometimes. I just thought it was kinda sneaky of her to pull that fast one saying she was her daughter.

That's so good that these babies have a perminant home already! BTW, why can't you keep cats perminantly?

Angels I'm not allowing myself to have anymore animals until we come back from our world trip. We are going overseas for 6 months in about three years and I have sitters for all my current animals but I don't want to ask them to look after more animals and I don't want to do it to the animals either.
Also I worry that cats will ruin my furniture and I hate fur on the lounges and I'd imagine it would be impossible to keep a cat off a lounge!!! I've never owned a cat and it would have to be a very special cat for me to take it in permanently!

LOL. All cats are special cats.

I think that if you get a cat young enough you can train them not to claw. NONE of my 30 cats claw furniture. And they don't sit on furniture either. Not unless I let them.

Our dogs are the same way. We have mostly little ones, and a huge one. But my cats usually slap the mess outta the dogs if they mess with them. ^-^ They show them who wears the 'pants' in this house!
