The both of my parents are keeping Monty and Elsa for one of my brothers and his family. They live in a apartment that does not allow pets.Our parents are keeping the cats until the lease is up and they move.
When they had Monty for a few years he started to display behavioral problems. When taken to the vet she suggested maybe getting him a companion could help. They obviously where not going to get a grumpy cat a puppy or a kitten.
None of our family had ever set foot in an animal shelter besides our parents when they got Lucy. They say there is a first for everything, they finally toke a trip to one. They toke my niece with who ended up picking out Elsa and a few other cats.
They of course only filled out paperwork for Elsa and Elsa only. If you are familiar with Disney you may know the movie Frozen. It is pretty popular with kids my niece is obsessed with it,infact so obsessed with it that she named the cat after the Disney princess.
