Private rehoming

This page aims at providing a platform for people to rehome cats privately.  Please, note that these cats are not in Community Cats Network’s care, we cannot therefore be involved, nor held responsible should any problems arise.  Unless stated otherwise, Community Cats will not answer emails relating to the cats below.  Thanks for your understanding!

We will only advertise cats/kittens that are neutered – as this is the only way to control cat overpopulation-, microchipped (or eartipped for outdoor cats) and treated for parasites.  We will be glad to help you to carry out these procedures if it’s not already done; just send us an email for more information. Ads will not be posted until that information has been verified. We also highly recommend that cats should be vaccinated prior to rehoming. We require that you ask for a contribution (€45 for neutered cats/kittens; €55 when microchipped also) in order to make the adopter responsible and strongly advise that you carry a home-check.

In order to have your ad posted, please fill in the form below and email a photo to communitycatsnetwork@gmail.com.  Please, help us to keep this page up to date by letting us know when the cat has found a home.

Please, read below some tips to help you with rehoming.

Messi & Salt

Miaow! My name’s Messi – that’s me on the left, the handsome grey & white one! I’m named after the famous footballer as I love to play ball. I’m male and that’s my sister Salt next to me. As you can see, we love each other very much and want to stay snuggled up next to each other forever and ever. We’re 4-months old and looking for humans to love and a forever home to call our own.

We’re originally from Kerry (don’t judge us) but love it here in Cork now. We don’t know how we are with children or dogs but we get on well with other cats, namely our siblings. My sister Salt is a bit nervous but she’s getting better and purrs so much when she’s relaxed. We’re indoors at the moment as we’re too young to understand the dangers outside but would very much like to venture outside once we’re older and wiser. A nice garden with grass and leaves would be lovely – it looks like so much fun!

Oh, our foster mommy wants you to know that we’ve been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and treated for fleas and worms. A contribution of €55 for each of us will be requested to help with our veterinary costs. She’ll want to see our new home too if that’s ok!

To enquire, please contact our foster mommy on 0877684702.

Love & lots of purrs,
Messi & Salt x

Outdoor/Farm Cats

A number of farm cats are looking for new outdoor homes. We are dealing with a few cases where the number of cats got out of hands very rapidly. The cats are now neutered, but their carers are now trying to reduce their number a little by relocating a few. They will only be rehomed in pairs and the youngest (from 6 months old to 2 years old) or friendliest ones will be given priority as they are easier to relocate. You will need to keep the cats strictly confined (in a shed, garage or safe enclosure with natural light) for a period of 4 weeks to get them used to their new environment. You will need to give them access to a warm shelter area and provide them with complete cat food and access to fresh water in exchange for their pest-control services.

All cats will be neutered (and eartipped) prior to relocation and a small donation to contribute to the veterinary cost will be asked for.

To enquire, please email communitycatsnetwork@gmail.com or text 086 1583501.

Puss

16-11-06-mary-cityPuss is approx 19 months old. She was homed as a semi feral cat about 10 months ago but she is an indoor cat only now because where i live isn’t safe to leave her out. She can’t seem to cope being an indoor only cat she’s very stressed: she spends her day scratching and crying to get out. As i cant offer her an indoor/outdoor home it’s with a heavy heart i have decided to rehome her. Its breaking my heart to see her so stressed and to know there’s nothing else i can do for her only to rehome her as she will never be happy being just an indoor cat. she’s lovable and loves cuddles, just a little nervous of strangers but once she’s used to you she’s one of the most lovable cat you’d meet.

Puss is spayed, fully vaccinated, tested negative for fiv and felv, has had full blood work done on her kidneys etc. She’s very healthy also wormed and fleaed.  She would be suitable for an indoor home with access to outside or a comfortable outdoor home; preferably without any young children. Unsure how she would get on with other cats or with dogs.

Resources:

Rehoming Cork Pets have a group on Facebook where you can also post an ad.  They offer free homecheck.  Visit their page here.

What to look for when doing a homecheck:

  • Do the adopters understand that it is a long-term commitment?
  • Are they willing to spend money for vet bills and a proper diet?
  • Where will the cat sleep/live?
  • Is everyone in the house willing to adopt a cat?
  • Do they understand the importance of vaccinations?
  • What will happen to the cat if they go on holidays/move house?
  • Make sure they will keep the cat/kitten confined for at least three weeks.
  • Do not rehome too young kittens to strictly outdoor homes.

If rehoming cats as outdoor cats:

  • Make sure that the cat is neutered to prevent unwanted litters.
  • Make sure that the cat can be confined for three weeks.
  • Make sure that the cat will have access to food and water.
  • Make sure that the cat can have access to a warm and safe shelter.
