Looking for a new home for our cat

Hi everyone,

Have been living in Switzerland for 5 years and since July 2016 i have the company of my cat but my wife and my daughter arrived this Fall and what we thought was just a flu became a bigger problem. Our little girl is highly allergic to cat fur and we have no choice but to find a new home for our friend.
She is a 19 months female cat, sterilized and vaccinated. She has micro-chip.
She is a sweet cat but she needs her time to get used to new people. For this reason we want to make sure that she will stay with someone patient and with a lot of love to give.
She is staying at a friends house because our girl had a crisis but he can´t keep her longer because in his apartment pets are not allowed, that´s why we have urgently to find a new home for her

All her things go with her, her sandbox, cat tree, transporter, eat and drink accessories and all the documents (including passport).

So, if you are looking for a new cat friend please contact me.

Rafael

Re: Looking for a new home for our cat

Talking with the wife and not sure if new members can PM already, where in Zurich do you live?

We say yes and the cat looks great from the pictures. But we have one thing to solve, in a week we will be going on a holiday for two weeks and we will need a solution for a caretaker else we cannot have her this early. And my wife would love to see the cat first before adopting a new member in our family (tho I expect that she would love to take it home that instant right away give her reaction on the pictures.)

Since owners always want some info before they give away their pet, as well me and my wife always have had cats, we grew up with them and always had our own. Our last one we had to put down last year since she at age 17 became to ill. And since we had a kid in 2016 we first wanted him to pass the baby stage before getting new pets. We live on ground floor on the edge of Leimbach and eventually she can go out, cats are allowed here, and we already know that our kid is not allergic.

Love to hear from you.

Re: Looking for a new home for our cat

There is a FB page (Basel Expats Catsitting Network) where someone is looking for a cat. She was given many suggestions, but perhaps you can contact her? I've copied/pasted her post here:

Hey everyone, I’m looking to adopt a second cat - preferably female and not a kitten ( as kittens always find homes easily, I would like to help an older cat who might be finding it harder to get a loving home )
If anyone has a cat looking for a home or knows of anyone please send me a pm!
I’m also going to contact the Tierschutz Beider Basel where I adopted my last kitty from.

Hi Dantes,

Thank you for your message. We have looked in another site and there was a girl from Basel looking for a second female cat also... We talked to her but after seeing our cat photos she said she wasn´t interested...

We will try to find out if is not the same person. Thank you for your feedback.

Hope we can find the best solution for our cat (Edwin maybe )

hannah´sauntie thank you for your words.

Re: Looking for a new home for our cat

Rafafig, where did you get your cat from? Was it a shelter here? Because some keep ownership of their animals and you're only loaned it for its lifetime. If this is the case for you, then you need to talk with the shelter since you may not be able to pass your cat on to someone else without their approval.

Even if such would be the case, he could propose a new owner and perhaps they want a talk with us and all should be fine.

My wife will call you in a short and is able to come by tomorrow evening since she would love to see the cat first, (although I have the impression that she already fell in love with the pics, so that is just a formality..)

When she comes by everything else can be arranged.

So looks to me that all is fine.

Indeed, that may be possible EdwinNL, but Rafafig needs to check this with the shelter if that is their policy, assuming he got it from a shelter here. Some are happy to vet a new person and agree, others are not and prefer to do the rehome themselves. Of course if a shelter wasn't involved then it's not a problem.

Re: Looking for a new home for our cat

Hi guys,

She came from Portugal when she was only 2 months. The registration was made by me and she has a passport and all the documents.

Medea thanks for the information, might be helpful for someone else

We are both on a holiday and will take up contact after the holiday to set up an appointment to move the cat to our home, looking forward towards the family expansion
