I feel for you. I have 3 special needs kitties (never owned, barely fostered, rescued from a not-so-nice shelter). They are sisters, indoor cats. It took 2 years for them to like me...they don't like anyone else.
I had to board them due to termiting process. My vet recommended a cats only boarding facility. They were able to share the same cage, which was a very large space. It helped tremendously that they could be together, as they love each other greatly.
This facility called me every day with an update on how they were doing, eating habits, etc.
This was a far better solution than boarding them where dogs were also boarded (quieter) and much larger space.
Try to find this type of place and you will feel much, much better!View Thread
My cats were always indoor/outdoor, but I was aware this wasn't in their best interests. During the elder years of my last pets, I converted them to indoor only. My current 3 cats enjoy indoor living, only, which makes us all happy. They special needs kitties adopted from Humane Society, never owned, rarely sheltered. They are living a wonderful life with my home & large screened porch as their domain - now 12 years old and we're all happy!View Thread
