Of course it depends on attachment, attention, responsibility, and more. And the poor pets (like children of divorce) really don't get to decide for themselves what happens next.

A family adopts a stray cat they find in a pumpkin patch. It's been dumped by another family because it's not afraid of people and purrs right away. The kids make a bed on the back deck for it with water and food and an old rug. The next year some neighbor boy was claiming the cat belonged to him. His friend had seen it.It had a collar and a license and it was in his house but they told him it belonged to the other boy,and that they'd found it in the pumpkin patch over a year ago. The little boy said that that was was just fine.They didn't want an indoor cat but the cat was voting with it's feet.And It was snowing outside. So his mother just had to let the cat in. But if the original family wanted the cat back they'd have to reimburse her for the shots,the license,the deworming,& having the cat fixed.

Guess who ended up with the cat?
