The thread about the cat being handed in to a shelter by a deceased person's family spurred me to have a good think about what would happen to my two furkids if anything happened to me.
Of course my husband would continue to care for them, but he travels with his job etc, and in the long-term I would dearly love them to be in an environment where they would be loved as they are with me, and also one with no other pets.
My Mum is too houseproud to tolerate pets "mess", and also does not understand why my cats are inside-only. My Mum-In-Law loves cats, and lets them sleep on the bed etc, and lost her 16 year old cat last year, but has a very open house, and would not keep them indoors-only.
I also worry about the compound strays I feed. If I leave - what will happen to them, especially Kissy, who has hardly any teeth, and never leaves my garden. I would have to seriously consider having her PTS, as I cannot afford to relocate 3 cats back to South Africa. (This will already represent the difference between a new car or a 2nd hand one when we go back - which is a choice I am happy to make)
Does anyone else worry about this, or am I just morbid?
