Why the animal is being rehomed: My ex and I broke up and since I couldn't afford to live on my own I moved back in with my parents. Parents don't allow cats so I had a friend taking care of them while I was living at home and I visited when I could. My friend is now moving into his own house instead of an apt and doesn't want to take care of the cats anymore (i don't blame him as its been close to a year). They need to be out before the end of this month and I have yet to find someone to care for them for me in the meantime.
