    Barnet Freecycle - WANTED: URGENTLY wanted home for special needs dumped young female cat (N14)

    Janet was dumped with her 4 just born babies, the umbilical cord still attached. Only one survived and is doing well. Janet URGENTLY needs a kind home to take care of her as she has special needs. Unless a home is found for her within a week she will be put to sleep. She is very friendly to people but not keen on other cats.
    If found a home permanent or foster she will first be neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
    I can no longer take care of her having another 40+ rescued cats and kittens to take care of by myself in my home at my own cost.
    If you can help Janet she will not be put to sleep.
    Thank you

    I can't help I'm afraid, but that's just so awful. Advertising a cat on freecycle is awful as well in my opinion. It doesn't really say what her special needs are either. Perhaps you should message and ask? Also then you will get the persons contact details in case the advert is pulled. Poor thing :(

    That is awful. Would also be interesting to know what sort of conditions the other 40 are being kept in - unless they have a huge house and or garden/cattery then the mind boggles.

    I suggested the person comes on here for help. All I can do is message them via Freecycle. Only saw it today.

    They also ask for cat items on the free sites, I don't know who it is or what they are doing. It's not near me, I just hate to think that this cat is going to be PTS because there are too many others :mad:

    One of the local Shelters with a no-kill policy would surely take her?

    I cant have her indoors because of Rowans zero immune system, but I do have a cat run with indoor access, if it comes to it. I'm in Surrey - let me know.

    The lady seems to have lots of cats that she cannot find homes for. She has said I can pass on her e.mail address if anyone could help.

    The rescue I work for covers N14, they're full but use a boarding cattery if they have to (cats with kits stay in rescue while less needy cat is boarded ;)). I'm on maternity leave until next month so can't do anything myself but if you want details PM me.

    I have been in touch with the lady, sadly Janet is more special needs than i have experience for, i have a meeting with my vet tomorrow so hope they can help me or advise me on her needs.

    Lauren and myself are going to help this lady try and rehome some of the rescue cats this lady has kindly given a home for.

    Can you say what's wrong with her?

    I've left a message with my rescue, and will speak to the manager about this later today, see how they can help.

    Thank you CC and HoneyFern for trying to help.

    I do hope something can be done for little Janet and the other cats and I know you will do your best.

    Thank you also to MCWillow for the kind offer.
