I Hate My Cat and I Feel Guilty

Frieda the cat. Isn't she beautiful?

Why do I hate Frieda the cat? She leaves black and white hairs everywhere—black hairs for our white clothes and white hairs for our black clothes. She’s always hungry. I have to clean the kitty litter. And the greatest sin of all: she doesn’t get along with my grandchildren.

Angela and kids. Aren’t they darling?
-
When our oldest daughter, Angela, and her two children came from Saskatchewan to visit, Frieda hissed at two-year-old Owen. She even attempted to bite him. Frieda may have done these things because Owen maybe tried to touch her.
-
Whatever, no cat is going to get away with mistreating my grandson. Owen was upset, Angela was upset and Goma (that’s what Owen calls me—isn’t he cute?) instantly decided to evict Freida.
-
Freida was relegated to the laundry room, until we could come up with a more permanent, practicable solution.

Freida is beautiful and I can relate. I currently have 2 cats (I had 3 but one died). I am known as the cat-lady on my street. I LOVE cats! People bring me strays because they know I'll take them in. Not anymore! My recent addition - Hugo is incredibly cute, but beneath his cuteness lurks a cat with ADHD. He has destroyed everything in my house! My couch, my walls, my new bedspread! I found the solution though - I'm sending him to college with my daughter in September.

I hope you find an easier answer!

Hey Bette, if you are talking about the cat, she's your's. I can bring her to your house, just say the word.
