Get rid of the cat too.
How sick/old is the cat? Right before we moved back stateside from Japan, one of ours became very ill. Then his sister. Had no idea what was making them sick. I did everything I could (hand fed, gave IV fluids) to try and nurse them back to health. We ended up putting one down before we left and losing the other shortly after the journey. It was horrible - and I wished I had put them both down rather than putting her thru the loss of her brother and then a very stressful couple of weeks (travel back to the states, hotel room, new house)

Later - we figured out that they were eating the recalled pet food, the stuff that the Chinese had put melamine in )

Some people actually feel their animals are family. And, caring for them, however strange the notion is to you, is just part of their responsibility.
