The life of an orange kittie named Cullen

How do I choose?

I am facing making the hardest choice I have had to in a long time. I am moving across the country and I can only take one cat with me. (I am moving in with friends who already have two and it's going to be hard enough with 3.) So how to I choose. I love them all equally-like they are my children. And I look at each and I can see there qualities and how each are special. So yep this is hard. You wouldn't choose between your children. I am thinking of taking Cullen. I have run though so many pro/cons of each and he is the less likely to adjust well after this move if he goes to some where unfamiliar. Meeka and Sam are rather independant, while Cullen has latched on to me and is so trusting. He is also skittish to a fault and that drives me bananas. I fear that if he is sent to a new home, with strangers-it will take him a while to re-adjust. A plus to him coming with me is that one of my friends owns his sister and they have always gotten along. Her other cat can be a bit of a pain-but he is much smaller than Cullen and Alice (Cullen's sister) is the alpha in that family so I am sure there wouldn't much of an issue. I don't want to give up Sam or Meeka, but I feel less bad than if it was Cullen.
I am going to avoid the Human Society at all costs. They are a great organization, but our is a shelter that when a cat has been there too long they are put down. So they are a last resort. I am going to look at friends and family to see if anyone will adopt either. I just want to make sure they will go to families that will love them.

It's going to be a heart breaking month. I have to pack, clean and get ready for this huge move, and give up 2 of my babies. I won't be able to delete their pages, I think i'll keep them up as a reminder. :D

Happy diary pick Cullen! I see you'll get lots of love too!

Oh my what a hard decision; I don't think we could do it at all, to give up 2 kitties.

Yes do talk to friends and family. If you can have your 2 kitties join you later on, maybe they would keep them for you temporarily till you can get them again.

We hope things go well and have said a prayer to help.

Love Georgina xo
