Rehoming Your Cat

Guidelines For Placing An Animal In A New Home

If you are looking for a home for a companion animal or stray and need some ideas to help find a good home, please review and download our guidelines for placing your pet or stray 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 surrender@towncats.org for availability and options. Not all requests can be accommodated.

brown tabby cat

Animal Bio: Polly is a 15-year-old, talkative, loving tabby cat who would like nothing more than to sit on your lap and get petted. She enjoys playing with string and likes to get brushed. She is up-to-date on vaccinations and has recently had a complete veterinary workup with a clean bill of health, although she does have some arthritis. She is missing many of her teeth, but it doesn’t seem to interfere with her ability to eat dry food and her favorite treats, though she does enjoy her pouch food. She also used to be an indoor/outdoor cat and would appreciate a home with a sliding glass door to an enclosed patio/garden or accessible window for her to safely look out and admire the view.

Polly came to us after her elderly mom passed away and nobody in the family would take her. They were planning to euthanize her. Instead, we took her in and are currently fostering her. However, we already have two cats and do not have the capacity to care for all three cats long-term, so are looking into a loving, long-term home. She is a good litter box user and has no behavioral issues. She is fine with being picked up and held and is affectionate. Polly lived with a small dog for the past three years, but we are not sure how well they got along.
