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.

Street Girl

This lovely little cat has been living on the streets for the past year. Someone goes out to feed her every day, but she really needs a home to call her own as she is so friendly and affectionate.

Baby Kitten

Baby kitten is not a kitten, but a lovely friendly stray found in Midleton. Nobody claimed her and her finder is now looking for a home for her.

She is very sweet and cuddly, but it’s all on her own terms, so she would be better suited to a home without young children. She is a bit scared of other cats and would be better on her own. We are unsure how she is with dogs.

She has been health-checked, spayed and is now microchipped. A contribution of €45 to help with veterinary cost will be requested.

The Inseparables

The Ginger is Male with yellow eyes, he is a bit friendly. He is 6 years old. The Calico is Female with green eyes; she is about 7 years old. She is a bit more shy. she will take time to become friendly. These two are very dependent on each other and cannot be separated.

An ideal home would be one where they have shelter, room to roam and kind people to mind them. In time i believe both cats would become trusting of a kind hand. They are lovely and sweet, taken care of for years by a elderly gentleman.

Both cats have been neutered and a contribution will be requested.

Taz and Sister

I moved in a new house (supposed to be cat friendly) in October and those two cats were already there. They were tiny (I think about 5-6 months). I started to feed them and build a trust relashionship with them. The black one, a male, I call him Taz, came to me very quickly, asking for cuddles. The tortoiseshell was more suspicious. At the end of November, I decide to trap them to neuter them. So since this time I feed them and take care of them. As the winter was coming, they wanted to go inside the house. As my landords said yes to cats when I signed the lease, I let them go inside.
And they are absolutly amazing. I could see those cats grew up with humans. They are humans friendly. You can cuddle them, and play with them. They are quiet. They don’t damage furnitures and when they tried to scratch somewhere it was not allowed, I just put them and scratching posts and this is how they understand where to do this. So they can be educated if you’re patient and gentle with them. I already let them indoor and they behaved very well. They use the litter boxes and don’t scratch on furnitures.
Taz, the black one, can stick to you all the day. He’s a lap cat and love to cuddle, especially after to be feed. He has his ritual breakfast : he eats, he plays and after that, he asks for cuddles. He doesn’t like to be alone, and always ask for attention. He loves to speak ,and to be indoor. He slept with me sometimes.
The female is more shy, but she likes to be pet sometimes, when this lady asks for it. She likes to be in your legs when you’re gonna feed them. She doesn’t really speak, except when you’re about to feed them. She likes to be indoor, but she will ask to go outdoor.
You can tame both of them with treats, they love it and they will cuddle you for treats;)
But currently, my landlords decide they’re an issue, so I have to rehome them, because I fear for their safety. My own cat has to live in the garage for now.
I think those cats can suit to someone who knows cats very well, and is used to dealing with them. They don’t seem to be okay with dogs, but they are okay with others cats. A safe outdoor access is essential.

Taz and his sister are about a year old and are both neutered. A financial contribution will be requested to make sure they go to a good home (I will the donate it to charity)

I will consider only serious people.

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.

Contact Form. Please be honest in your answers as it is in the best interest of the cat.

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.
