And they are gone

I feel weird. I feel like I should be sadder. Jared thought for sure he would see tears by now. I guess I've just been preparing myself for this moment. I've wanted to get rid of my cats for weeks now. Since having Benjamin I have not been giving them the attention or care they deserve.

We packed up all their belongings tonight and hauled them over to my Aunt Cindy's. She is who I got them from 4 years ago this fall. I've had many good times with them and I thought they would grow old with me but I couldn't handle them anymore. I worried about them sleeping in Benjamin's crib and suffocating him. I worried about him being on the floor and crawling in cat hair. Lately they made me more mad than happy. I felt so bad.

I feel some relief that they will be somewhere with people that will give them attention and they will be happier. It will be an adjustment for them but it's for the best in the long run. And I know I can go visit them.
