Jay was open about his former alcohol addiction, and our goal was to get Barbara to forgive Jay for the past. She also needed to address her avoidance issues. Things in their life had become majorly overwhelming, and they both were checked out.
Jay was beyond thrilled to see the kitty tower go. He let out a squeal of joy!
Once Jay communicated how important it was for Barbara to make him and the kids a priority, she came around and agreed to find a better home for three of the cats. I was very proud of Barbara, as these animals were also her children, but she recognized that they could have a better life and this was the mature and best decision for everyone.
