    Default How do I find a good home for my fur baby?

    Ever since his brother passed away last year my cat just hasn't been the same. They were from the same litter and ever since Sirius died, Remus meows a lot and just isn't happy without any other feline company. We both work so he's home alone all the time which isn't fair on him.

    DH doesn't want to get another cat and the only option left is to rehome him. I can't even bear the thought of taking him to a shelter, even giving him up is hard enough but I don't know where to find someone that I know will give him a good home because he's the sweetest and most loving cat I've ever met.

    Any ideas? Where do people go to rehome their pets? I've never had to do it before.

    Maybe try posting an ad on gumtree? Or contact your local vet as they might have some ideas

    I'll give it a go. I'm worried about not getting someone who's going to take good care of him.

    Put a price on him. Only somebody who is really going to look after him will be willing to pay for him.

    We recently sold our 2 year old dog on gumtree for a considerable amount of money and the people who bought him were lovely and I was very very very confident he was going to a good home, better than ours actually!

    Rescue group, friends or family. RSPCA and pounds unfortunately will be chockers and adult cats are harder to rehome.

    Please please please give cat rescue places a call. They have foster homes for cats so they aren't shoved in a cage and left. Facebook has Pet pages and the rescue groups are on there. Don't go to gumtree unless you put a price on kitty as horrid ppl take free pets for dog fights.
    On Facebook you will find Pet Lovers Australia and Prescious Pets plus there is a heap of other rescue pages such as Little Paws rescue.

    Is he a Burmese? he looks like one, if he is can you contact the breeder and see if they can take him back and re-home him? sometimes people are looking for older cats that don't need to be toilet trained etc.
