Cats currently needing new homes

Are you considering adopting a Maine Coon?

Often the cats that need a new home find themselves in this situation through no fault of their own. The reasons for re-homing are numerous and can vary from an allergy to cats within the household, emigrating to another country or breakdown of a marriage or partnership. Most of the cats looking for new homes have no known medical or behaviour problems, although occasionally they do  and you need to have a long chat with the current owner to gain a full understanding of any issues with the cats.


Many of the cats tend to be older – it is very rare to have a kitten that requires a new home. Some cats need to go to homes where there are no other animals or children. Others have no problem with this - it all depends on the individual cat. The website has all the current cats available and it will be updated weekly. You CANNOT sell your cat on this site, all cats go FREE of charge, although obviously we do accept donations as we often have to pay for veterinary bills on cats being rehomed.


If you need to rehome a maine coon, then you can contact me to have their details added to the website ( ). If you wish to rehome a maine coon, please check on this website. I do not keep a list of people offering a home so please do not contact me or please don't be offended if I don't reply, I have people contacting me daily.



Cassie is a very beautiful MC girl, she is seven years old.  From day 1 she was very nervous so we gave her time and space to settle. Rather than improve her nervous nature became more obvious, she has not and never will be a lap cat. 
Where we lived she did have access to a safe garden, although it was ‘cat proofed’ Cassie soon showed nothing would keep her in the garden but she loved to roam the fields in summer, only when we were at home.

She has never been affectionate but much more confident at meal times when she would run round your legs, but pick her up and she’s rigid, trembling and want to not be held.

2 years ago we moved to Spain (much sooner than planned thanks to Brexit), my 2 cats went to stay with my parents, but, going outside wasn’t and still isn’t possible due to a road nearby. After nearly 12 months I was so concerned about Cassie’s quality of life I made the difficult decision to try to find her a new home, where she would be the only cat (she is bullied by both her companion and my parents Ragdoll boy) Very sadly this did not work out for Cassie, although she had seemed to settle very well, she had to return to my parents home, they were adamant this would never happen again and she’d stay here which she has. Following the death of my father, and deteriorating health of my Mum I am hoping to try again, but it has to be the right home for this beautiful, very shy girl.
Cassie is a silver tortie tabby, she does not like being groomed but will tolerate short sessions. Currently she lives her little life in the kitchen diner, if the study door is open she will hide and stay in there. When I do go to get her she cowers, as if expecting to be hurt, she has never been hurt and we don’t understand why she feels this way.

An ideal home for her would be with someone at home all day, with access to outside as she seemed to be so much happier when allowed outside so a home away from roads is a must. Definitely no children or dogs. I think she would be fine with a non dominant other cat.

Cassie used to come and sit next to me and loved to be stroked, from a distance but any sudden movements and she would jump down.

I would love this girl to have a home where she can blossom and flourish with someone who doesn’t have high expectations of her, and who knows how to deal with a timid cats. Rehoming fee applies.
If you can offer this lovely girl her forever home then please contact our rehoming officer Jacky Edwards at




Zelda is a female, blue ticked tabby Maine Coon, and is almost three years old. She has been neutered, vaccinated and is microchipped. 


She loves being around people and is a lovely companionable presence, and while not a cuddly lap cat can be very affectionate on her own terms. She is curious, determined and independent, and can be very vocal when she wants to be! 


She is exclusively a house cat, and would benefit from a stable, predictable home environment without other pets and young children, and someone who has capacity to provide her with the love and attention she deserves.


We have had her since she was 12 weeks old and will be very sad to say goodbye to her - however with some displays of aggressive behaviour directed towards my partner based around certain triggers (use of spray bottles and emptying the litter tray) combined with having a three month old son and the likelihood of having to separate her from us and parts of the house going forward, we don't think it is fair to her to keep her any longer as we can't give her the happy life she deserves.


If you can offer Zelda her forever home please contact our rehoming officer Jacky at There will be a rehoming fee of £150
