I hate posting this. I have been inLondon for nearly 20 years and acquired a husban,d children, mortgages pets etc and the cicumstances of my life have changed and I m now leaving the country to Australia and I cannot take my 3 cats. I don't want to depress everyone with the circuumstances...

I have tried all avenues with my friends, spoke to vets, pet shops, facebook and even the RSPCA and no one can help me. I will be leaving the country 23rd February.

My beloved cats are:

Momo 9 years jet black, independant desexed. Likes to find quiet places in the warm to sleep.
Osar 8, tabbby and neutered laid back, fat but a bit of sun sends him frisky. Loves playing with his brother. All playfights though!!!
Tam aged 7, tabby another hhilled cat. Both tabbies will allow my children to drag them from pillrr to post. Affecionate.

All cats great mousers. You would never see a mouse again in yyour house.

Fully toilet trained,indoor and outdoor cats.

We are in West Norwood.

If you feel you would like to know more. Please give me a call.

Sorry to hear of your kitty predicament Armidale and I wish you well with your move back to Oz. I love cats and if I didn't already have two already would happily help you out. There are a number of cat lovers on the forum so hopefully someone can assist. Shame that the vets can't advise and the RSPCA won't help. What happens if it gets to leaving time and you haven't found a home? I'm guessing if it gets to a critical stage the RSPCA will have to step in.

A friend of mine was in a similar situation a year ago (she also left for Oz) and found a place at some farm outside of London where she left her cats. Kinda sounded like a really good place for a cat. Much more fun than a two bed in CP to be honest :-) I will ask her if she still has the contact.

I thought quarantine to oz was only 30 days nowadays. Though judging from your post there's more to this then meets the eyes. I wish you luck in finding homes for your mogs. If we moved I don't think paolo Di catio would make it to oz. at 18 yo would be too much for the fella. Again good luck

Try http://www.raystede.org/ I know several people who say that this place is brilliant. They care for all kinds of animals and are supported by many people and have a good record of getting animals re-homed. Good luck.

Do you think the cats would be best rehomed all together or would they be happy in separate homes? Good luck!

Have you tried Celia Hammond? http://www.celiahammond.org/ They've got shelters in Lewisham and Canning Town. We got one of our cats from there.

Good luck...

They could go individually. The mother cat is not attached to her babies. Lol.

If i had access to a garden, I would gladly take one off you. But I dont at the present time, and if your cats are used to being out & about, am not sure they'd adapt to being indoors all the time?

This place is good and they are happy for a donation for helping to rehome.

www.croydonanimalsamaritans.co.uk is another animal charity, although like many others at the moment they're probably inundated. Still it could be worth a try.

Yes! I think it was. She was very impressed by the place too.
