Hello, this is my first post, so I hope I am not posting this in the wrong forum (I apologize if I made a mistake!). I really need advice and perspective on this. About eleven week ago I found a pregnant cat, I took her in and, a couple of days later, five beautiful kittens were born. I started placing them in good homes at about eight to nine weeks. One went to my brother, another to a good friend of my brother, a couple of them went to another home, but I've been getting regular updates on how they are doing. I am now left with the mother and one of the babies. Both are just adorable and really bonded to me. The problem? I am on vacation visiting my parents! I actually ended up staying three months longer than expected just to care for them, get them spayed and neutered and to find them good homes. I really wanted the mother and daughter duo I still have with me to be adopted together because they seem to be bonded. So far, it looks like it won't happen and I can't stay with my parents forever. I am due back at work and my husband and other pets (two dogs and a cat) are all back home over 5000 miles away. I have two potential adopters, one for the mother and one for the kitten. Both are strangers. I have screened them, but still, I do not know them. My question is, should I keep them both just so that they stay together, even if that means risking air transportation for them as checked baggage in a trip that takes almost 24 hours and several transfers? or should I let them be adopted, even if it separates them just to avoid the trauma and potential death or loss risk associated with them traveling? Please, any advice or perspective is welcome! This is really keeping me up at night. I just want to make sure they have a the great life they deserve. I am attaching a picture of both, the kitten is on the left and the mother on the right (they look like twins!).
