Does anybody want a cat? Or two?

Sweetie has never gotten along with Ollie and so we always keep them seperated. Shadow was doing ok with Ollie but has recently started randomly terrorizing him again, maybe because she can’t get outside as much now since it’s colder.  Tonight she attacked Ollie while he was sitting upstairs outside the nursery as I nursed Miles and when Ollie ran into the nursery to get away she followed him and attacked him again.  Of course, Miles started crying and I ran after Shadow, clutching the baby and it was all a big mess.  I hate to let the kitties go because I feel like I can’t be sure they’ll go to a good home.  Shadow is a nice cat and likes to sit on your lap a lot but she has the world’s most annoying cat voice.  Sweetie, well, Sweetie is dumb.  She is just always overjoyed whenever you pay her a lick of attention but she does have issues such as not always figuring out where to put her butt over the litter box. And occasionally peeing on the bedding.  So I feel like there are not too many people out there who are willing to put in the effort that these kitties would need or have the patience for them.  But we just can’t keep them. Ollie tiptoes around always afraid he’s going to be beat up and then gets beat up for just sitting.  And it is just so hard making sure we are rotating the cats so they all get free roaming time and then when there’s a cat fight it disrupts the baby (esp when he is just about asleep! grrrr).  But the poor kitties have had such hard lives and I hate to give them away without knowing what kind of home they are going to.

I feel miserable.
