Mmmm... Waffley

Remember how I said I was indecisive. And then I alleged I was decisive. Ha! We all knew that wasn't true, right? So here's the thing. I know I said I wanted a new cat and my cat is disregarded and unloved, and in reality that hasn't changed. And in reality that probably won't change. But here's the thing. I'm now having pangs of maybe I shouldn't go seeking a new cat yet. (I say this like there's tons of cats out there and I'm going to get offered them all.) I have a misguided sense of loyalty. I'll be the first to admit that. A tiny part of me feels like I shouldn't go cat seeking right now because it would be disloyal to the current cat. And not so much that, but that with so much turmoil the cat is currently undergoing it wouldn't be fair to add something else to the list. You know? You don't I can tell already. You dear reader are thinking "Joanne, why are you a freak and just go and find a new cat already or don't but don't be wishy washy and don't bitch about the current cat if you are unwilling to do anything about it" and you'd be right. Maybe I'm just nervous. There's a cat at the ultimate ideal shelter. Well, there is one in CA at my house of worship. There's one in New Hampshire (kind of near Kate & Dave) and there's one here with the best possible shelter one could want to know about. I need to just buck up and do it and not waffle. Don't I? :)

Applying isn't the same thing as accepting. Save the angst until you are offered something.

PM gave good advice. Also, I do understand the whole loyalty thing, but really - the current cat isn't putting you as #1, so you have to make sure you are putting you as #1. You know? You can't stay with a cat that sheds if it makes you allergic, just so the cat is happy.

You don't need to be loyal to your cat. Realize that the cat will not be loyal to you if push comes to shove and you should know this by the recent events with your cat. Wait for some new cat offers and then consider your options. Don't worry until you need to.

I agree with all previous comments. And, I always tell my staff members who are thinking about looking for new cats that you shouldn't stay with your current dysfunctional cat out of a sense of loyalty...that doesn't do anyone any good. You have to look out for number one because your cat will always look out for his number one (and that isn't you).

A cat at your church? That sounds interesting!
