I just finished putting three of the cats and the dog on Craig's List.
It's a big step for me, but I've come to the conclusion that it's just best all the way around if they can find a new, loving home. Our house is too small, our finances too tight, and my attention way too divided to keep track of all these pets.
I would just take them to the Humane Society, but their published statistics say that 2/3 of the animals that are taken in end up being euthanized.
That's a last resort.
But something's gotta give.
(We're still keeping two of the cats. And Matilda, the outside cat that isn't officially ours.)
