    Call a rescue company! Try SAFE Perth and if they cant help, ask them who can. I used to foster for SAFE and they really do a great job.
    Im so sorry to hear all of this hun....I know how much you love your cats

    Do not take your kitty to the RSPCA. Since getting our big boy from there and seeing the state he was in and many others there I would never ever tell anyone to go there. Well go there to rescue the animals from yes definately because the consitiona suck! but that's it.

    Put a price on him your less likely to get losers, or uncaring people taking the kitty.

    The local buy/sell/swap on FB is a place people do it here.

    I don't really follow the logic of taking away his entire family as a remedy to help his grief though. It'd be more traumatic to be rehomed and cats don't often get along with other cats from outside their family. The grief won't last forever.

    Have you thought about contacting an animal communicator (pet psychic)? I only ask because I have used one before and it was very helpful. It may be that your cat is trying to give you a message and you're just not getting it. Especially since your other kitty passed over.... If you want more details please PM me.

    Why do you have to give your kitty up? Is the meowing doing damage to the cat or yourself?

    Agree - this is why I think he's probably just trying to express his grief and pass the message on to you. Animals feel the same emotions as we do.

    Have you tried Feliway?

    It's a product that's like those plug in air fresheners, but it releases something that only your cat will smell. It's supposed to calm them and relieve stress.

    It worked for my cat, who was very stressed when we moved houses.

    You sound like you don't really want to rehome your cat, so I thought I'd suggest this in case it helps

    I second the use of feliway, I think your cat will only be more devastated if you give him away he'll feel like he's been totally abandoned.

    I'd suggest trying feliway and/or clomicalm. You need to get the clomicalm from the vet but you can use it for short periods to help them readjust/modify behaviour. Worth a try before you give him up!
