My brother got a kitten from a friend's cat who had way too many. He said beforehand that he was going to get a cat but didn't say that it was mine. A bit of background info: I am 16 years and a Senior in high school. I don't have a job and my brother doesn't have a job. We'd kept the kitten behind our Mother's back. I thought that he was going to take of her since he at least gets some money ( though I 'm not sure where it comes from ). But a lot of the time I've had to use my allowance (which comes in sparse intervals ) to take care of her. Especially since it's my Senior, I'm very busy with work and college stuff. And even in college I'm not able to bring her with me. My brother is very busy as well. ( He always brings her to e when I come home from school. I love my cat very much. She's sweet, energetic, and very cuddly. But I do not want her to suffer. She's already attached to me and I'm attached to her. I do not want to bring her to a shelter as I've heard it's a very traumatic experience for animals. I've thought about bringing her to a place like a friend's or something where they can keep her and I can visit her often until financially I'm able to take care of her. But I'm not sure how that'll play out. Not to mention that my Mom doesn't like animals and disapproved of her when we told her. But she didn't want her to suffer either. I'm mostly worried about giving her away and her missing me. I really do not want to think I abandoned her. I love her way too much. But I want her to be happy. I know what my brother and I did was irresponsible but I want to fix it. Is there anything I can do?
