We are looking for a new home for our dear cat Cornflakes. Coming to this decision has been quite a difficult step for our family but we hope that it will eventually be best for her. We've moved 7 times across 3 continents and it's all been a bit too much for her. She deserves one forever home where she can be settled, loved and cared for. If you think you may be the right family for her, please contact me so that we can discuss the possibility further. Here are her details:
- approx. 5.5 years old
- female Persian mix
- spayed, chipped, up-to-date on shots
- sweet, gentle and intelligent
- enjoys kids' company as long as they are gentle with her
- shy at first, but loves cuddles and chats when comfortable and feels safe
- indoor/outdoor

Just wondering, are you anywhere near Brighton?

We're in Cambridge.

I'm in Suffolk and would love it, but DP has other ideas sad

Thank you Pesto. I hope so too!
Googoo, I understand. Everyone needs to be on board for such a commitment.smile

She's lovely. Can you try Streetbank and other focussed area community on line groups?

NatalieQ Mon 17-Aug-15 23:51:31

Davros, that would be great, but I'm new to the area and don't know which ones to go to. I'd appreciate any tips you can provide.

Cambridge should have a Cat's protection league you can contact. Alternatively, try the local vet? If you explain your situation they might be able to help you find her a new home.

Good luck, she looks lovely!

What goo goo said is the way to go. Don't let her go to a stranger without a home check. Please.

Oh love her sad
If I didn't have such a boisterous toddler who torments the cat we have, I'd have tried to help you.

I am sure you would be able to rehome her within Cambridge, it's finding a way to reach out to potential new homes. Let me google and see what charities are nearby.

Actually off the top of my head Wood Green in Godmanchester would be a good starting point. I know they would take her as last time I was there they were saying yes to people that came in but saying they would have to wait a few weeks before they cod being the cat in. Why not ring them and see what they say?

*could bring the cat in

Thank you all for all the tips. I'll be contacting them and doing my research. My only hesitation is that I would not want her to wait in a cage in a strange place before she's found a home and I'd like to go visit the new potential home myself. From your experience, do you know if any of that would be possible with these organizations? Either way, I'll cobtact them and get some info. Thank you all. She is truly precious!

It should be possible for you to keep her until a suitable home is found (if you're willing/able to do so, of course). I'm not sure about visiting the new home but there's definitely no harm in asking. Make sure you let the rescues/vets know how she is with children and whether she's an indoor or outdoor cat as well.
