hello i took in a cat about a year ago from someone who moved away and could no longer have it i thought as i had one, i didnt mind but my other cat really dislikes the new cat and i thought it would take a bit of time but things have got worse been year now the new cat now wont even come in house i have to litrally pick it up lock it in a room on his own just so i can feed him its really not nice and hes sooo loving too and so friendly but i really dont want to take him to cat home and would rather someone had him but ive asked around friends with no luck now tried my local paper but wondered if anyone knew of any sites i could maybe advertise him hes had all his jabs and castrated etc, i feel really sad for him as he deserves better and wouldnt want him to just goto anyone, but feel he really should be better loved not just going through life if you know what i mean and before anyone asks i cant part with my other cat hesn with us years

Have you tried your local freecycle site?

My friend recently took in a dog offered on her local group and is really happy with her. That way you would get to check out potential new owners and feel better before giving him up.

http://www.freecycle.org/groups/unitedkingdom/

What area are you from? Maybe an advertisement in your local school?

Hi, I think a local cat sanctuary is probably the best place, they make sure any new homes are suitable with no busy roads etc. Good luck, I was in a similar situation a few years ago and a neighbour took in my 'spare' cat, but I do remember how stressful it was.

they dont allow on freecycle (or shouldnt) if you pm me i can find out as friend works for an organisation rehomes cats?

Animal offers depend on the group, some do some don't. Its worth asking.

You say he's really friendly and loving, maybe a retirement home? A relative lives in one which has a couple of cats.

We took in a cat from our local vet, so its definately worth asking if they know anyone looking.

Yes, try everywhere! You could take a pretty photo of the cat and laminate it onto a postcard or something, might catch someones eye. It's hard re-homing cats rather than kittens.

You have an obligation to the poor little thing.
It's not his fault he doesn't feel part of the family, he probably knows you hate him and love your first cat more.
Don't be a mean mommy :cry:

sure owlass is just winding you up(sorry but i did giggle a little), pls don't be sensitive i am sure anyone reading your post will know that is not so.
As a alternative maybe you should seek advice from some sort of cat behavior expert, maybe there is a way your cats can be brought to co-exist, i know my brother and his wife have 3 acquired at different stages so it is possible

my mates kids are doing the same to his new stepchild- but the stepchild is ginger, so my mate doesn't know what to do!

(good luck rehoming your cat)
