Ever took an animal off and it come back?

We had a cat that would not use the bathroom outside or in a litter pan. Oh no, it loved the floor in my house just fine. Well after about six months two new sets of carpet and a cat going on my third new floor we were fed up. So I load this cat off and take it about 3 miles from my house. About three days later I hear the cat and I am thinking you are losing your mind we took that cat off. Oh no, it came back. I decided that since the cat put forth that much efort it could stay. That cat has never went to the bathroom in my house again. And I don't have a liter pan. I threw it away when I took off the cat. The cat uses the bathroom outside. It probably figured it out. Have you ever had a weird experience like this?

I would NEVER EVER leave my cat somewhere to fend for itself! Why didn't you put it outside where it can stay and give it some shelter such as a box bed from Walmart and maybe even a small fleece blanket to keep warm in the winter time? Taking it off somewhere and dropping it off is NOT the way to go. That is very mean and cruel! How dare you do something like that to an animal!! How would you feel if you were an animal thrown out to fend for itself when it doesn't know how?!

CatsandDogs and MooPile you're not the only one outraged by this...one doesn't take a living, breathing animal with feelings and a soul and just dump it like garbage--

What a bunch of sanctimonious sh!t all you people are spouting. If you think this planet and all life on it needs you to coddle it into well-being you are mistaken.

I am with Moopile, CatsandDogs and the others on this one too. I sure hope you don't have any more pets too.

Your cat is very, very smart. To be able to find his way back to you, and still young too. Poor guy. Well, I hope still he receives much love. It could have been having a very difficult time, mentally, settling into house. Or if things were bothering him, if not treated right, it is an instinct to go outside of the litter pan. Well, at least you will know not to adopt an animal in the future, if you are unable to afford a vet, or deal with the other responsiblities. Good luck for you with your dear cat who clearly loves you and his home to have found his way back.

Sorry you didn't like the way we responded to your decision to abandon your problem feline. My suggestion is that from now on you should choose to not have any pets in your home. It seems clear you don't have what it takes to deal with all the possible problems a pet can provide. Having a pet is a big responsibility. I know how bad you want to have this discussion deleted.

While I understand that you felt as if you had no other choice than to take the step you took to eliminate the problem (at least that's what it seems like to me), you really did put the poor thing in of danger by doing that. Anything could have happened during that three days. But obviously, you were meant to have the kitty in your home as it made its way back to you. I really hope that your kitty is getting LOTS of love, affection and caring now that it has made its permanent place in your home.

How dare you do this to your pet. From the other discussions I guess you won't be back to read any more replies. But what you did was despicable. No animal deserves to have this done to them. Pets are not programed to fend for them selves. Even if there were plenty of houses where you dropped your cat that doesn't mean that they want it. You should have taken it to an animal shelter.

You are cruel this Cat could have been killed and you think that you did great You should not be aloud to have Pets You should have dealt with the Problem not just set the poor thing outside and hoping it would never come back that is evil I believe that your Mum did not take you 3 Miles away when you would have your Accidents while being Potty trained
