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.



Panda ( Pandora) is a 2 years 10 month, pedigree brown tortie,  Maine Coon spayed female. She will be fully vaccinated on a restart by the time she leaves me. She is wormed to date and has just been treated with stronghold plus for fleas worms and mites. 

Pandora has recently been FELV and FIV snap tested clear. She is also microchipped. 

She has been vet checked with no issues found by our vet.


Pandora is struggling to settle around dogs and other cats. It’s clear that her recent past before returning to me was one which was filled with fear and negative associations with other cats and dogs. Pandora was found roaming on the streets after her owner relocated, leaving her to fend for herself. As such she is extremely friendly as local people were feeding and taking her into their homes daily. She isn’t particularly shy around strangers and absolutes adores calm older children. 


Pandora is a clean cat who has adapted to indoor life in a stressful way. She doesn’t feel safe to use the litter tray or eat unless someone is around her. She is probably going to need a lot of confident reassurance that you won’t leave her, also someone would need to be around a lot of the time for her. She is however happy to settle either with you or away from you on the floor or sofa. She has displayed attempted escape behaviours when she feels threatened, or because her previous routine was uncertain. Someone would need to be confident in being able to keep her safe as she will run out of doors at lightening speed then panic. Pandora must have structure to her life and you must be able to commit to being around a lot for her. She gets distressed if her human parent doesn’t tend to her on schedule. As such no full time sole owners or long shifts please.   


Pandora loves a belly rub and will roll and purr and chip and is very chatty and I would describe her as a very friendly happy cat. However, she remains a constant flight risk due to constantly leaving homes and someone would absolutely have to have safe very secure outdoor cat fencing or a suitable large catio attached and established in the the home already, so she can come in and out as she pleases. This must be absolutely non negotiable and in place before she is rehomed. 


Pandora does not like dogs too much and can get scared, so a dog free home is sought after, due to being picked on, in the streets, due to being picked on. In the streets she has developed a stress response from interactions with other cats that results in her activating her flight response. She may come to harm with loud environments, and can be very grumpy and unhappy initially with other cats.  

Although Pandora is making progress around other cats she is very standoffish with them. Preferring they keep there distance. For this reason I would consider she went to a home where there was a resident Maine coon only, that is perhaps a little older than her and who isn’t reactive around other cats and will govern her space to decompress over many weeks. This might be ideal for someone who has lost another Maine coon already and knows how there resident cat reacts. Pandora never starts any fights preferring to submit heavily and hiss or growl lowering her body and turning her head away from confrontation.


Ideally Pandora would love a female owner as that is all she has really known and someone who is very hands on with wanting her to be very much part of their life and soul. She loves people and is her happiest with consistent routine and attention. She will spend her day chirping purring and rolling for fuss on your lap. 


Pandora comes from healthy lines of Maine Coons, she is hereditary clear of all Maine coon related genetic diseases and her family are heart scanned and health tested. 


Aside from all this we have the underlying concern that Pandora may have had a fall or been injured in the past. Although no clear signs of this are showing now, she has in the past not been as agile although now that is much improved, this may have been due to spending a harsh winter outdoors etc, as such someone would need to understand that there may be lasting effects on Pandora from a past we aren’t fully aware of.  As such it would be recommended that any catio or indoor trees aren’t too high or present a falling risk for her.


It’s absolutely imperative that Pandora finds a forever amazing 5 star home, ideally I would like to stay in touch to support the transition and ensure that Pandora is happy. 


If you think you can give Pandora, the forever home she deserves then please contact our rescue coordinator Jacky at

Herra is a 7-year-old silver tabby & white male Maine Coon who is looking for a loving home. He is neutered and vaccinated and has been micro chipped.


We have bought dogs and he has not taken a liking to the dogs hence why need to rehome him. I would recommend no other pets so would probably be best suited to being an only pet and with older children/teenagers.


He is used to a quiet street with a quiet back garden away from main roads as sometimes he likes to go out but is mainly a house cat.


It would be nice to find someone who has the time to play and give him one to one attention,  he loves the attention and will blossom more, so ideally someone semi- retired. His coat tends to matt easily, so he does need regular brushing. This isn't a problem providing grooming sessions are kept quite short. 


Once he gets to know you, he is a tactile, loving, very affectionate boy. He needs rehomed fast because the dogs have made him unhappy, and we don't want his health to deteriorate because he is limited now to his space of play. 


If you can offer Herra a loving home, then contact Jacky our rehoming co-ordinator at  There will be a rehoming donation of £125.




Arlo is a tabby 5-year-old, brown tabby and white neutered male Maine Coon. Fully vaccinated and microchipped.
Luna is a 4-year-old, blue tabby spayed female Maine Coon. Who is also fully vaccinated and microchipped.

They both live together and get along extremely well. They are not related and come from different parts of the country, but t
hey have always been together since kittens and would be best suited to stay together.

They are much loved family pets who have made a huge dent in our hearts. We, are heart broken by this decision to rehome but due to one of the children developing a progressing allergy to the cats, they are at the stage that to rehome them is the only option.

Arlo has a big personality who is very loving and loves getting cuddles and petted.
Luna is a little more reserved and unsure of strangers. Although she does like a cuddle and a good rub behind her ears.
They would be best suited to a home that does not have any other animals. They are used to children of all ages and the noise that comes with having young children but moving into a household with this I feel that they would settle better with a quieter household as Luna is anxious in new environments. So maybe a semi-retired household or a fully retired household who have the time to be around them both and give them the love and attention they are looking for.

They are indoor cats that have never been outside. They are not street wise and do not have road sense.
They have a XL litter tray and are both happy using this enclosed tray. They also share a tray so no need for two litter trays.
They do not have any health problems. Luna tends to get an upset tummy when anxious but uses the litter tray; we give her some pro biotics into her food provided by the vet when this happens just to clear it up quicker.
Arlo is a bit heavier than Luna but not on a diet or any special food.

They are indoor cats so cat trees are a must. We have a very large Maine Coon cat tree that they love and we would hope for the new household to have.
Luna still loves to play with her cat toys and will play with toy mice and small cat toy balls for ages.
They will sleep lying on top of each other as well as groom each other.
They both need grooming weekly; Arlo will happily let you while Luna thinks it’s a game and does make this a bit more challenging.

If you can provide their forever home, then please contact Jacky our rehoming co-ordinator at  There will be a rehoming donation of £100 each for these boys.




Ruby is a stunning 4.5-year-old, Black Tortie Maine Coon, she is, neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Ruby has been genetically tested for HCM, PK Def and SMA, all normal results. Ruby was last vet checked on the 19th of April 2024 by our vets with no issues found.

Ruby initially came to live with us 12 months ago when her parents, our friends emigrated to Australia. Unfortunately, Ruby has not settled into a multi-cat household, and she is showing signs of stress (UTI’s) and dominance. We have worked hard with Ruby to help her settle but as her health is being impacted by high stress levels, we have had to make the very difficult decision to look for a foster home. Rubys parents are due to return home at the end of this year, and so is looking for a short-term foster placement for 6 months. 

Ruby needs a foster home where she will be the only pet. Ruby is loving, playful, interactive and likes puzzle feeders. Ruby likes spending time in the garden enjoying the fresh air and sun on her belly. Ruby is good with recall and will herself come indoors when it begins to rain. Ruby is not used to busy roads, so requires a cat safe garden to explore, however due to her size she is not very confident at jumping high fences.


Ruby does tolerate grooming and nail trimming, again on her own terms. Ruby has visited a professional cat groomer as her underbelly can become matted. Ruby is not a fussy eater and enjoys her wet and dry food, she is very intelligent and likes puzzle feeders.

Ruby thrives from plenty of one-on-one attention, cuddles and likes to chat, however this is on her terms and should not be forced. Ruby is used to having people around during the day, and when she is not out enjoying the warm weather, she is snoozing on her cat scratcher in the office where we work. Ruby is good with older children and adults, as long as interaction isn’t forced, and she has time and space to figure new people out. Ruby is harness and lead trained, and travels well in the car – either in a carrier or back seat with a harness. 

If you can offer Ruby her temporary home, (and give her back) then please contact our rehoming co-ordinator Jacky at




Hi all my name is Rock Candy and I am a brown tortie Maine Coon  looking for a new home as my owner is very ill.

I am rehoming Rock Candy for my mother-in-law,  she is 8yrs old is a very laid back. She is spayed, microchipped,  and enjoys going out in the back garden when it is nice so is looking for a catio or cat proofed garden or somewhere rural away from traffic.

She doesn't get on well with dogs. She does like other cats as she did live with a domestic cat that is no longer with us, I feel she needs to be in a home with other cats only. We have had her first the last 3 months but is not getting on with our dogs which is stressful for  her. 

She is a lovely cat and loves Weebox cat food has the senior chicken mousse twice a day and loves freshly cooked chicken and lamb. She has senior Purina dry food.

I will give you what food we have left as we buy in bulk. 

If you can offer Rock Candy her forever home then contact Jacky at  There will be a £75 rehoming donation.
