Why not just keep them in your loving home? Surely they would be happiest living out their last bit of life in the home they know with the people they trust

Typical easy conclusion to jump to and be judgemental about.
Ever stop to consider it could be an elderly parents pets. The parent could be moving into a home, passed away or just no longer capable.
Not everyone can take in a pet that isn’t directly theirs. Allergies, fear, dislike, etc.

Poor kitties why they being rehoused? They have retirement homes for cats? This is so sad.
I fully understand there is a need for this. My Aunt is 93 and still lives on her own and has 2 cats which she has had for years. The worrying thing is that they tend to walk in front of her and on a couple times have tripped her up
I'll have them
Why not just give them away to someone who wants a cat?
Didn't know such a thing existed , just looked at the one in Lincolnshire , £850 to have your cat put in with about 80 others in a "home" setting . Maybe it's just the cats I've had , but all I can imagine is that they would get extremely stressed , fight lots and probably pass away earlier due to all the stress . I sincerely hope that if anything happens to me , the people left behind understand that I love my cat and would want them to rehome herin a suitable place , not dump her on a charity or put her in a place like that . Even the owner of the retirement home says she runs it because she's a dog person and doesn't get emotionally attached to cats .

OP , if you are in some kind of impossible position in regard to rehoming a cat , but have the finances to pay these sort of amounts, could you look at paying someone locally to care for him/her in their home?

The lady has terminal cancer and would like her pet to go to a retirement home and not be passed to someone she is afraid her pet would run away and something might happen to it but in a retirement home for cats it could live it’s life out in a loving caring place
Sure I've seen RSPCA do a scheme like thix
retirement homes should be banned for cats and humans

I have two cats, one we got as a kitten and the other we rehomed after her elderly owner died. I love those cats and they are very much part of our family. They are fed a raw food meat diet and get unlimited cuddles and are all around spoilt.

no business centre such as a cat retirement home with multiple animals to look after will ever be able to provide the same care for an animal as a family home could.

mia (the cat we rehomed) had been almost feral when we took her in and had to be trapped to bring her here, but now she is the most loving little thing that sleeps on my bed every night and sits on the edge of the bath when I’m in it and she is so loved. She wouldn’t get that in a home, and nor will this cat.

i would look for someone to adopt it so that it can get love and care from a proper home, instead of paying some business to give a half ass attempt of looking after i

The RSPCA find a new home for them the lady wishes her pet to stay in one place to live it’s life with people who care this way she will know it’s in safe hands and not going to a house where it might run away or even be scared as it has been only with the lady for 12 years

We have tried but the owner and her pet have been together for 12 years just the 2 of them it’s very scared of people it would run away and it might get run over lost and so on she wants it in a safe happy place

Owner has terminal cancer


Awww so sorry. Good luck finding a place for the Cat. Must be somewhere. Maybe speak to local animal/cat charities or Vets they probably know of places in your area

Mia was like that, her elderly owner passed away and the next door neighbours and the niece of the owner couldnt get near her. They had to trap her in their shed after luring her in with food and she wouldn’t go near anybody, but after the right love and attention she is like a different cat. We have her as an indoor cat (both my cats are) so there’s no worry about running away or hit by cars and have her the opportunity to get socialised with people.

you just need to find the right home. And a retirement home will not be a proper home

Or just run away from it
My suggestion is to get in touch with Cats Protection. If the cat needs socialising it could stay with a foster carer until it’s ready to be adopted.

A properly vetted adoption family would always be a better choice in the long run. Cats have social and emotional needs, not just biological ones.

Because she wants her pet to go somewhere that it will be happy and safe with other cats and people that care she says if she gives it away how would she know the people are loving people that care about animals

The person has not long to live and wishes her pet to go somewhere safe and happy not to go to just anyone
