Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

I am very sorry to hear about your situation. If your schedule isn't working for her and you are both struggling, then rehoming her would be ideal. In regards ***** ***** you have not listed what you have tried or who you have contacted. Therefore, I will outline some potential avenues for you to consider. First, you can consider ringing Cat's Protection (HERE) or the RSPCA (HERE). Both offer rehoming for cats. Furthermore, here is a wee link via Cat Chat that you can use to see what rescues and shelters may be around you (HERE). Finally, this is certainly something to ring your vet about. Many vets work with local rescues and charities and will have close ties to them. Therefore, they may be able to put you in contact with someone who can take her, they may be able to take and transfer her for you, or let you at least put up a notice for rehoming her in their practice. So, those would be our main avenues here to see if we can get her somewhere that suits her better before we have to consider putting her down.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
