    Hello, many thanks for looking. We have a much loved cat who needs a wonderful, temporary home. We are currently looking after her for my daughter who recently moved out into her 1st flat. The original plan was for her to take her cat with her, but the land lord has changed his mind. We would happily keep her because she is gorgeous but my husband and I are moving abroad.
    Is there anyone out there who could look after her for 6-9 months until we come home or my daughter changes her flat?
    She has never lived with other cats so I think she would be happier in a 1 cat home?
    Happy to give more details if anyone is interested?

    Hello @Anne Usher,

    In almost all cases forum members have cats of their own (several cats in some cases), so by definition I'm afraid this is not the best place to be looking for temporary foster care for a cat who needs to be in a one cat home.

    If by chance you are not moving abroad until October you could try your local Rescues to see if one of their foster carers could offer 6 mths care for your cat from October to March. They can't offer it in the summer months because they're all very busy caring for rescued mum cats and their kittens.

    I think your best option is to beg and bribe until landlord changes his mind back!

    @Anne Usher
    There may be some leverage with the landlord, as it seems the tenancy was made under false pretenses, that your daughters cat would be allowed.

    Can your daughter not offer a larger deposit to cover her cat & any damage.
    I know of people who have done this & the landlord has been happy to accept this.

    coming to a cat owner forum to ask for a one cat home (for 9 months!) seems like an uphill struggle

    Is your daughter duty bound to live in that flat for nine months? Why not negotiate or move.

    Agree with @ebonycat we offered a landlord a larger deposit when we rented for six months they were happy with that.
