I promised myself I wouldn't write too much about trying to sell the house here but I'm really upset and need to talk about it. We're having an issue with the cats. When we had our realtor's open house the litter box was in the spare room upstairs, most of the realtors said the smell was too strong and that we should move it. So, we moved it to the basement and I'm scooping it multiple times a day. However, our last 2 showings said they couldn't even go in the basement because the cat smell was so strong. I just don't see it! But I guess I just don't smell it? I really don't smell it and certainly not to an extent that you couldn't even go down there.
So, our realtor has said we should get rid of the cats. He suggested boarding them or giving them to a friend or relative until the house sells. But that could be months! I just can't imagine giving my cats to someone else or locking them in a cage for months. Logan and I have been crying for that last 30 minutes because I just don't know what to do. We've had 12 showings but no interest. What if it is the cats that are keeping us from selling the house? But how can I live without my cats for possibly months? And what would the cats be like when we got them back? Something like this could totally change their personalities.
I'm starting to think this whole thing is a mistake. I pushed for this move and Mark got the transfer and now we are committed to this course of action.
I'm thinking about taking the cats and going to live at my dad's for a few weeks. Hopefully the house would sell in that time period.
Any advice would sure be appreciated!
