him The kind of rejection you describe can be devastating to ones selfesteem With professional help you will be able to rebuild it and also decide what you want to do about this marriage Dear Abby I must respond to your answer to Catfused in Unless you have cats you have no right to tell the reader to keep the cats in a separate room with food and As every cat lover knows people dont own cats cats own people Since visitors know that their friend has cats if they are allergic to them or dislike them they should not come to visit I have two wonderfully spoiled children of my own and I choose not to have some people over and some choose not to come on their own because they know how freely my cats are allowed to roam the house They are exclusively indoor cats so to confine them to one room even if temporarily is not right Cats are family members just as people are Abby what would you have told Catfused if he or she had a child that the neighbors didn4 like Keep the child in a separate room with food and water Be careful how you respond to cat lovers Cat Lover in Georgia Dear Georgia Cat Lover Since that letter appeared in my column the fur has been flying from cat lovers nationwide Read on Dear Abby I would like to respond to the advice you gave Catfused in The reader asked what to do with her three declawed cats when her neighbor visited and asked her to remove the cats from the room You told the hostess she should put her cats in another room with food and water In my opinion Catfused should leave the cats where they are The neighbor should respect the fact that the cats live there and the hostess should tell her the cats are free to roam as they pleased because its their home If the neighbor doesnt agree she can call instead of dropping over A Cat Lover in New Orleans Dear Cat Lover I doubt that a few minutes in another room would traumatize Catfuseds pets Its common courtesy to make a guest comfortable in your home Denying pets free run of the house occasionally for a short time is not in my opinion too great a sacrifice to make in the interest of hospitality GBRA OKs Lake Dunlap water transfer Move helps wean Bexar and Guadalupe from aquifer By
