Tips For Rehoming A Cat

There are many things to consider when it comes to rehoming a cat. If you don’t know how to properly go about rehoming a cat or kitten, then you could end up doing more harm than good. This article will give some basic tips so that you can avoid making the same mistakes and do it right the first go-round.

If you are thinking of rehoming your cat, there are a few things to keep in mind. Every cat is unique, so there is no right way or wrong way to do it. However, there are some tips you can follow that will help make the transition easier and smoother for both you and your cat. First, try to find a home with a yard before the weather gets too cold outside. Chances are, if someone is outdoors enough to want a cat they will be glad to get yours up off the streets. I would also recommend avoiding placing ads online or on small local papers such as the mail or telephone books until November or December when the weather has cooled down enough to explain that it isn’t summer every day anymore. 

To rehome a cat, you will need to take some time and plan. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Be sure to have everything in place before you begin your search. Make sure that your home is ready for the new cat, including food, water, and litter box. You may also want to consider getting a new collar or harness for the new cat to wear when they enter their new home. This can help make them feel more comfortable with their new environment.
  2. Look for a rescue center that accepts cats older than 6 years of age. These centers are often able to provide medical care for cats who may not be able to find another home because of their age or health conditions. If you do find such a rescue center, ask them if they have any suggestions as far as what kind of cat would be best suited for your home (elderly cats tend to be more affectionate).
  3. Search online at local shelters or pet stores in your area to see if there are any other options available before contacting a rescue center directly; this will give you an idea of how many pets are currently available for adoption in the area that might fit your needs better than what

When it comes to rehoming a cat, there are a few things you should know.

First, you need to make sure that the cat is healthy and has no medical issues. You should take them to the vet for a checkup and make sure that everything is up to date. If not, you can get help from local shelters or organizations who will help with medical costs.

Second, you should have a plan for keeping your cat safe when they are not in your home. If you have other pets in your home or live on a busy street, you will want to find them a safe place where they can roam free but still feel secure enough to come back home when they need food and water.

Thirdly, make sure that you have all of the supplies necessary for taking care of your new pet! This includes food bowls, litter boxes, toys and treats!

Guidelines For Placing An Animal In A New Home

These guidelines include tips on what you should do to prepare your animal for adoption and how to screen potential adopters to make the right match for your animal. Cats do best in rehoming situations when they are rehomed by their owner and bypass a shelter environment. We encourage you to do make the most effort to prevent your cat from sitting in a shelter environment awaiting a new home. If you have exhausted all your resources and would like to inquire about surrendering to Town Cats, please email for availability and options. Not all requests can be accommodated.
