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 from the adopter (recommended contribution: €45 for neutered cats/kittens; €55 when microchipped also) in order to make them responsible and ensure you only get genuine calls. We strongly advise that you carry a home-check to prevent the cat/kitten to fall in the wrong hands (there have been reports of cats/kittens being used as dog bait recently).

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.

Hansel & Gretel

Hansel and Gretel are brother and sister and are about 6/7 years old. They are very sweet loving cats that love snuggles and food 🙂 Gretel is a bit shyer then Hansel and will keep to herself if new people come over until she is comfortable. Hansel, on the other hand, will stroll up to anyone in search of attention. They are used to be home on their own most of the time as we work but will love snuggling up in the evenings.

They have always been indoor cats so it would be best to keep them that way.

They are neutered/spayed and are microchipped. A contribution will be requested.

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.

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.
