all right

she's gone

it wasn't going to work out, and it wasn't fair on her to keep her here for the next year in what is basically one room, but I feel awful about it, really terrible

This is very sad.

I bet you had a little speech worked out as well, along the lines "It's not you - it's me..."

It's heartbreaking, I know. I went through this with a foster dog that I was going to adopt before I got the dog I have now. You might consider adopting an older cat that needs a home. Take care.

not with some twat who lives in a shoebox

Twats in shoeboxes deserve kittes too.

Or happiness.
Kittens are just sproingy, clawing, bits of joy.

But curmudions need to be eased into joy, so maybe a hedgehog?
They're snuffely and cute.
And live in a run.

And don't jump on you.

As far as I remember it's illegal to keep a hedgehog in this country....

You might want to check on that again, if you want one; the internet says it is legal and pretty damn popular in your country and city. :-)

You must be thinking of somebody else; I've never ever heard of anyone in the UK keeping hedgehogs as pets

Well, maybe the twat could get it together, move out of the shoebox and become a kitten rescuer in his old age.

That's how I got Big Boy Tom - from someone who couldn't cope with him (in this case a one-legged 85 year old ex-soldier who lived in a tiny first floor flat) and Big Boy Tom went on to have 18 years of total luxury.

That's such a shame :( kittens dont mind small spaces. Lots of kitten fosterers have small homes, the rescue center worked for preferred them as they're much more unthreatening for a small cat. larger cats not so good. It must be heartbreaking to have given her up, hope your ok...

Not Your Fault

From your descriptions of the problems, it sounds much more like the problem was the age and temperament of the kitten, and not the small space. If you had three bedrooms the kitten would still find you the most interesting thing in the place because you would be the only other living thing to play with. The kitten was not perfect, at least not for you, and it certainly wasn't your fault that you didn't have a house in the country with a menagerie to the keep the kitten occupied– it was forced upon you by a well-meaning, but misguided friend (it is almost never a good idea to give an animal as a gift to someone you don't live with). In the end, the kitten that was supposed to make you feel better made you feel much worse, and continues to do so. This is not your fault, and you are not a failure.

It sounds like you could really do with a pet, maybe something older, so maybe keep that in mind for next year. I don't know how things work there, but in San Francisco if you can find a doctor that will say that you need a pet for some reason (depression, etc.), the apartment owners make special arrangements if pets are prohibited in the building– my next door neighbor did this to get a small dog, even though dogs are not allowed in the building.

*hugs if ya want em*

At least you could make the decision now, not months from now when she's attached to you. Er, in some way besides dangling from her claws.
