Thank you for this reminder. I haven't recently thought about this issue, though I should have.

When I was single and had my first cat, Misty, I had a cancer scare, and it prompted me to ask my parents whether they would adopt her if I died or was unable to care for her during a prolonged illness. They said yes, and then my biopsies came back cancer-free, and that was the last I thought of it.

In the years since then, however, both of my parents have been diagnosed with cancer, and are not in a position to take on another animal in addition to their two dogs.

If something happened to just me, I know our current cat, Max, would still be here with my husband and our young son. But while we have made arrangements for our son's guardianship in case something happens to both me and my husband, we haven't talked with anyone about taking Max in.

Now, thanks to you, we will have that conversation, and we will get the kit and make sure our wishes are clearly stated.

Ideally, it seems like it would be a good idea for Max to stay with Aidan (our son) if something happened to both of us, to provide them both with some small amount of familiarity and comfort despite the upheaval they would experience.

But if that's not possible, I still want to make sure we find a good home for Max.

Thanks again!
