Why am I not reading where it is dangerous for the newborn human instead of this....

Maybe she doesn't like newborn humans, remember she doesn't want one.

Because hurdle doesn't understand the idea of "they're only cats".

I understand her love for animals, I just don't understand anyone willing to put the welfare of an animal before that of a human especally a child.

I can't get it either. I love my dogs, cats, rabbits and chickens. But my kids come first. If any of the animals is causing a problem in the family then they are out of here.

Frydaddy, do what you think is best for your family. While the cats will probably come around in time, I don't blame you for not wanting to take the chance. Your sweet little baby must come first and I hope you are successful in finding them a decent home. Unfortunately, my dog wouldn't tolerate another animal or I would offer to help you out and I don't know anyone wanting a cat.

I am wondering if the safety of the child is really an issue at this point, when so many suggestions have been given to keep the baby safe and wait out a couple of weeks until the cat and kittens can be relocated to a better living enviroment. Nothing seems to be adequate enough other than "the cats gotta go" solution. With that said, my question is, did you really start your post to find a equatible solution for baby and kitten safety or to find new homes regardless of the many, many, many solutions offered? It really seems to me perhaps you were just looking for an excuse to get rid of them now that you have a baby. Perhaps fiancial or other, it doesn't really matter, but you are right, <i>the cats really do need to go</i>

By the way, it was rather disappointing that you would not even try the dog crate (mine of which I offered to lend you)

Why not just offer to foster the cats yourself then?

Now why in the world in a town with 4 bridges and a river would getting rid of cats present a problem.

They're yours then. We still have them and was waiting a few more days to see if someone took up the offer. You can pick them up here or I can bring them there or somewhere inbetween if you like.

I am not so sure it is a problem, but of course, I don't see you offering to take the cats....
