Female cat needs a new home. (Tortoiseshell) She is about 6 years old and very sweet. Unfortunately I have to move and need to find a new home for her. It would be best if she was an only pet. Please text 206 856-5108 and i will send pics.July 16, 2017 at 6:43 am #888926
Why don’t you contact one of our local rescue groups, rather than dooming this poor cat to an even more uncertain future? She needs someone to advocate for her, so that she can find a truly forever home.July 16, 2017 at 6:47 am #888927
I have tried Emerald city pet rescue and they say that they are unable to take her.July 16, 2017 at 7:42 am #888940

All of the rescues are full (including MEOW and SAFe). Ideally Beckyjo would find a new home for her cat through friends, family, coworkers, etc. It is definitely best for the cat that it go straight to a new home rather than to a shelter situation, which is tough for most adult cats.
If she works to find a new home via the Blog, it will be important to thoroughly screen potential homes for among other things, commitment. I would suggest getting a hold of an adoption application from a shelter or rescue group so she knows what to ask/look for.
Best of luck.July 16, 2017 at 12:20 pm #888972
thank you, Mehud. I have been in that position where I had to give up a kitty…it wasn’t easy. First adopter didn’t work, kitty returned…second one did work. She was a deaf kitty, , so needed someone that would understand where she was coming from. I hope kitty finds a good home for the rest of her life :)July 16, 2017 at 12:24 pm #888974
and I really have to include this…please don’t assume right off the bat that the person having to give up a kitty is being irresponsible, has not tried all angles. That’s ASSuming a lot. It is difficult to find a landlord that will accept cats.July 16, 2017 at 1:07 pm #888983
No, Jan – you really don’t have to include it, although you always do. Your own ASSumptions, that is.
Providing a forever home for a living, breathing, feeling creature is not easy, and should not be reliant on something as transient as a lease – an observation based solely on the facts provided.
Done.July 16, 2017 at 1:25 pm #888985
anonyme…I am going to be very honest here…you must own a home…many of us do not. I have had rescue kitties all my life. I will no longer have one because I do live in an apartment, and landlords, for the most part, do not allow them.What would you expect this person to do…go live in a tent so she can keep this pet? You’d complain about that , too. The kitty’s owner is being responsible, and, I’m sure, is very sad at the prospect of having to rehome her pet/friend of several years. You didn’t wish her luck…you simply thought she was being irresponsible…we should be better than that. The world isn’t a perfect place, and I’m sure she is doing her best for this kitty. Maybe you should adopt this great kitty…make sure that it has a great forever home. Have a nice Sunday, anonyme.July 16, 2017 at 3:11 pm #889003
Good grief…. I knew people would start with their opinions… YES re homing my sweet little kitty is my absolute LAST resort…. I have no choice…. PLEASE IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY OR IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN ADOPTING HER DO NOT COMMENT!
P.S. Thank you for sticking up for me Jans

Beckyjo – We talked earlier today about not listening to negative remarks made on this thread. Keep focused on helping your cat and disregard all the rest of the chatter.
Mehud7 had some great input. Keep this thread active (Bump it up several times a day) and don’t give up. :)
Why don’t you tell us a little about your cat.July 16, 2017 at 7:31 pm #889027July 17, 2017 at 7:51 am #889063July 17, 2017 at 4:27 pm #889113July 18, 2017 at 11:08 pm #889217
Beckyjo, thank you for caring for her for as long as you were able and for doing your best to find her a loving new home when you could no longer do so. I am sure this is very hard for you. I’m so happy she’s in a new place where she will be appreciated. Best of luck in your next steps.
