Sitting on a gold mine...and didn't even know it!

Well, tonight we said good-bye to both of our cats. It was very hard for all of us, but I think it was the right thing to do. We had two cats, Blizzard and Cupcake. Both very sweet, very cute and very good natured. Problem was, Blizzard had become fond of going to the bathroom outside of the litter box. Unacceptable. Blizzard doesn't like change. Each time there is a change of circumstance in the house, or anytime anything occurs that isn't pleasing to Blizzard, he displays his displeasure by going potty on the floor, in a closet, or on someone's laundry. Last week, after Albert angered him by not allowing him to sit in Albert's lap while Albert was eating, Blizzard jumped down, ran over to the cornor and did his business, all while looking right at Albert! We've let it go a few times, and just hoped things would settle down. We rode it out with him when we adopted Cupcake. We rode it out again when Syd was born, but he's just getting worse and worse so we decided that it couldn't go on. This evening we called every "No Kill" shelter in the area. None were accepting new cats. Finally Albert decided to just take him to the humane society and pray that he got adopted. When he got there the staff took a good look at him and said "No Problem. This cat will be adopted in just a matter of days. He's a unique breed of cat called a Maine Coon. As soon as we advertise that we have him here, he'll get adopted."
You have got to be kidding me!!!!!! Albert talked to the staff a little more and then I researched Maine Coon cats and discovered that instead of giving him to the humane society...we s hould have sold him on ebay! One website said that Maine Coon's sell for $400-$1000 !!!!! And we just gave ours to the humane society!!!!! without papers though, you'd never be able to proove it so its probably just as well, although the humane society staff was convinced and I must admit the pictures I saw on the web were exactly identical to Blizzard. What nerds we are! Albert swore he wasn't going to speak to me for the rest of the night (like I should have known!) He kept saying "All this time, we were sitting on a gold mine!" Well, it smells like we were sitting on a urine mine...so the cat is GONE! Maine coon or not...
That left us with Cupcake. Although Cupcake does use the litter box properly, I was worried that if he smelled where Blizzard had gone, then he would start to do the same thing. Plus, the cats lived 95% of their lives in our bedroom, the kids don't really ever play with them, except Brice and the cats are not fans of Brice! A friend of mine has been looking into getting a cat for her daughter who really, really loves cats. They wanted a cat who was past the kitten stage so, I gave Cupcake to them. Without Blizz, Cupcake would have been lonely here, since our kids dont play with him. The kids were really upset for a while, more at the thought of having to give away the cats than out of actual love for the cats (seriously, they never spend time with them) I feel good that Cupcake is in a great home where the kids wil spend a lot o f time with him. Plus they live just down the street so we can still visit him anytime!
I guess things will turn out pretty well for Blizzard as well! Yea!
Drew is sick. He came home off the bus saying he didn't feel well and indeed he didn't look well. He felt really warm (though Brandon lost my thermometor!) and has been sleeping ever since he got home. Hopefully school will be called out tomorrow due to the snow! We're praying!
A snow day with the kids would be great. As long as the airport stays open so Albert's Dad can get here on Saturday!

Nigel and I got a cat right after we got married. He was our "baby" until we finally had our first real baby seven years later. He used to sleep in the baby's bassinet and once I caught him shoving his paws down her throat. When we had baby #2, he showed his displeasure by purposely barfing on our belongings and once I caught him peeing on my pillow WHILE I was sleeping on it! When baby #3 came around, that was the last straw. He left us for another family that didn't have any kids. They renamed him and took him to another state with them when they moved. I wish them all well! Cats are just like that and I totally understand (though too bad about losing that gold mine!).
