Sharing custody of pets?

Anne Anne
Do you and your significant other share a pet? I was watching "My Cat From Hell," and I was wondering how common this pet sharing is among couples that live apart. I mean, my hamster is lodging with my boyfriend because I'm moving, but that's as far as I've gone. What about you all?

I had an elementary school teacher who divorced after his kids were grown, all that was left was the Australian Shepard. So rather than one of them give up the dog to the other partner, they arranged visitation.

We can't even afford to get our personal possessions out of storage in Montana, so neither of us can afford to send the cat and dog back and forth between Florida and Arkansas. I kept the dog and he kept the cat.

I miss the cat.

I share custody of 2 dogs with my ex. My current GF has a dog and two cats as well.

I personally think it's bad for the animal(s) in question. Pets are like children and having wonky schedules can be confusing and create behaviors that are unwelcome in our human homes.

Working in veterinary medicine some of my patients have been shared between couples who are no longer together, it gets pretty confusing for medical care - who ok's what procedure, who pays, what if the other person doesn't want to do it all, having to update both people on hospitalized pets because they don't talk to each other, them visiting separate, then it gets even more confusing when new partners of the ex-spouses get involved too. I have had several clients who it was like custody in a child.
