new home for older cat

Question

Hello,
I am moving shortly (mid Feb) back to the UK sooner than I had expected, and for various reasons I may not be able to take my cat. I am looking for a new home for her, and wondered if anyone was interested/knows anyone who might be? She is an older cat (13), quite calm and affectionate. She is fine to be left alone during the day, but she does like attention. She has some arthritis in her back legs but she is still fairly playful. She is also declawed (not my choice, I adopted her as an older cat), so she can't destroy furniture/carpets. She is also long-haired so needs regular brushing. If you know of someone who may be interested, please let me know. I'm really keen to find her a good home before I go, in case I am unable to bring her over. Thank you!

If you can't find anyone, these guys are really good. I dropped off a cat for friends of mine that were leaving. They couldn't have been more sympathetic or friendly.

Thanks! I was trying to avoid a shelter if possible, but it's good to hear they come recommended!

I second Anon: Help Animals is a wonderful organization; the most pleasant shelter (from the animals' point of view) I have ever come across. the staff is very very dedicated to their cause.

Your cat will be most likely be put down when you give her to one of the shelters here. The reason is that they think that she will be too old to be re-homed and the fact that she has arthritis does not help either. Your best bet will be indeed HELP animals

@Phil Cole: if you already know you are going to move back to the UK in 2 years and already know that you have no intention to take any cat you get back with you, I'd say the kindest, most animal-friendly thing to do would be to not adopt any cat at all. There is no longer any quarantine as you must know. https://www.gov.uk/take-pet-abroad/pet-passport
