|I need to find new homes for our three cats. They live outdoors, farm kind of situation, but are loved pets that are fed, vetted, spayed & neutered, and get Revolution once a month. They are outdoors because my mother has asthma. Two are the babies of a cat that came with the property. As soon as she had her kittens we had everyone fixed. We had mama in the cellar for birthing her kittens (her first litter was killed) and I put a litter box down there and she wouldn't use it. I tried so many different configurations. She used the dirt floor instead. So her babies never learned to use a litter box.The male has a personality suited to indoors, but the female hates being indoors.
The third is a Tom that showed up & never left. In pretty bad shape. Now he's so friendly & sweet. He acts like he's been indoors before, but I don't know if he's used a litter box before.
I love these cats. I don't want them to be dumped on some farm. I doubt the male, Hermes, could take care of himself and I'd hate to see that Tom cat, Orpheus, go back to what I rescued him from.
My mom is separating from my stepdad and he won't care for the cats. My mom can't take them to Texas with her (she'll be living with family) and I live in a one bedroom apartment with my min pin.
I'm just wondering if I will have to consider outdoor homes exclusively. Also, what keeps a cat from just leaving its new home?
What is the best way to find a cat a new home? I am putting them on Petfinder, on here. I help with Daviess County Humane Society, so there is a source, possible foster if need be. I've made a flyer but I want to try other avenues. The closest shelter, which I volunteer at, is new and doesn't have a very high adoption rate right now, so that would be my very last option, but the female, Artemis, hates walls and putting her in a cage would be awful for her.
