If anyone wants a cat PM me.
Bossman, is this cat being given away due to the actions of the children?

The problem with a kitten is that

Eventually it becomes a cat

The cat has grown to be mean to the kids because they always messed with it. At first, it would only give warnings of small scratches because it didnít want to be bothered. At this point the cat will randomly stalk the youngest kid and bite/scratch without cause.

I think it just has the temperament that it wants to be left alone and not have kids trying to pick it up and chase it around. However I am not a cat whisperer and do not really understand them other than they seem to be a**holes.

I absolutely despise cats, so it will not be coming to my house. My wife already has one and I hate it.

The cats actions are a direct result of the children (and the parents failing to control their crotch spawn). This can be cured through training and behavior modification of all concerned. almost sounds like the parents are taking the easy way and getting rid of the cat.

There are numerous rescues that may be able to assist. another option is to surrender the cat to a local Humane Society or BARCS.

I wish the cat and family the best of luck and hope they think long and hard about adopting in the future.

Apparently a young couple took the cat today to its new home. Itís a win. No kids messing with it. No more it getting blamed for scratching kids.
