I grew up with cats, so when I was 25 I adopted two of my own. A few years in, I realized that while I like cats (and dogs), I the amount of responsibility that goes into ownership isn't worth it. Because I loved my cats, I gave them a wonderful life until they died of old age 5 years ago. But with all the sadness that goes with them passing, I felt a bit of relief too. And now, I'm facing a really difficult decision. My sister died suddenly a few weeks ago, and her two indoor only cats need a home. I tried to find them one, but they aren't young or particularly cute and they are extremely skittish (not even a little friendly). So now, knowing my sister's final wish would have been for me to take her cats, I have have to decide if they go to a no-kill shelter (which won't guarantee against euthanasia), or if I am going to spend my next 5-10 years being a cat owner again. If you were me, what would you do?
