Hey everyone! I just adopted a 4 month old sweet baby boy that I named Desi just 3 days ago...and I'm already thinking of bringing him back to the shelter, which is breaking my heart. Desi is so very loving and affectionate and I LOVE him for that. But if I'm not paying attention to him (petting, nuzzling, etc) he will begin this howling/yelling/screeching/crying that I've never heard any cat ever do before! Even if I'm in the same room with him and just unable to hold him...but it's obviously worse if I'm in a different room. I have a spare bedroom that I made his room...I have to keep him in there at night because he will just howl when I'm trying to sleep. I also keep him in there when I'm gone because I think the howling is so much worse when he's left to roam free.
I realize that it's only been 3 days but my fear is that if I wait it out and it doesn't get much better then it's that much harder on both of us to have to return him. Also, his sister is still at the shelter and my thought is that maybe someone who can take on 2 cats will adopt them both and he will be happier. (I just can't do 2 cats right now.) I feel so horrible even thinking of bringing him back but I don't know what to do. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!! :) Thank you! ~Erica
