Smooch's behavior is absolutely out of control.

He is belligerent, he attacks Sarah's cats with an absolutely unprecedented single-minded hostility despite us having introduced them the "right" way over weeks and weeks.  He is just awful.

I've tried so many things.  (Yes, that.  Oh, and that too.  And that other thing you were thinking of?  Yeah, that.  So please, unless you're willing to pay for it and/or help me implement it, please don't make suggestions, it's only painful.)  The only thing left to try is medication and while I'm understandably reluctant to go that route, at this point it's either stop his behavior or re-home him, and . . . I don't have high hopes of being able to do that responsibly.  He is so demanding and so difficult, he has health issues, he's not pretty, he vengeance-pees.  He will be hard to place, and I just don't know what to do.

It is tearing me apart.  I don't want this for him, or for us.  I love him.  He is a sweet, hilarious cat.  Just not with other cats.  He is absolutely savage.

Can I just . . . I would need you folks more than ever to help me find a good place for him.  Someone with no cats or dogs and with adequate financial and temporal resources to help him.  I'm in Tulsa, OK.  Could you help?  Is that a thing we could manage to do?

Asking for a small, furry friend.

I'm really sorry. I have a similar-but-less-dire situation going on with a 22-year-old cat I brought home a year and a half ago. I feel terrible about wanting to re-home her, but she hates all the other animals and protest-pees in weird places and is the most allergenic animal I have ever met (like, I can't be within 5 feet of her for more than 10 minutes or my entire face hurts and my eyes start to swell). She lives in one (large) room, and she really needs a person with no allergies and no other pets to spend her last few years with. It is incredibly stressful even without her attacking the other animals - I can only imagine how much worse it would be if she were able to physically bully my other girls.

So yeah, I'm really sorry, and I hope you find a solution that keeps Smooch safe and happy and loved.
