Our lovely Molly needs new forever home (Reading Berkshire)

Post by JasonG » Tue Oct 23, 2018 1:03 pm

Hi everyone, we are new to this forum and would really appreciate any advice or help.

We have got a cat aged 7 called Molly, extremely lovong and friendly but recently she has started having fits. We have had her on medication for the last 6 months but when she goes wondering (we live in a woodland area) she becomes out of sync with her medicine and the fits start again. The problem we have is that we are parents of 5 children, the youngest being 2 and when Molly fits she unrinates and although we clean immediately we are concerned about the health ramifications for our 2 year old boy.

We are a big family, we both work full-time and unfortunately are struggling to not only keep tabs on our cat and her whereabouts as she can go wandering for 2 - 5 days and because we live near the services, people often take her (albiet kindly) to vets on their way to their detinations but also keep her consistently on her tablets and reduce the fits. We have tried but can longer do this. It's very hard on the children when they see Molly have a seizure.

Ideally we would like to re-home her to a couple or person who has the time to dedicate to her but we really are unsure where to turn.

We would really appreciate some advice but we cannot no longer keep her, it's not a case of us simply abandoning her because she is sick, it's because there is a lot of time and dedication required that we can no longer give her. Please understand this isn't about cost, it's about having the time and resources to physically look after her as we live in a wooded area and when she goes AWOL we then have to then keep her in for a week to get her medication back in her system and since we have had her we now have a little boy which we never envisaged as well as 3 young teenage girls who now want to go here there and everywhere. Im sure you can see how difficult a situation we are in. She is an extremely friendly cat and loves cuddles and when she has her medication regularly she shows no signs of her condition.
We feel that she would be better in a town area as we think if she fits when she is in the woods she gets disoriented and lost and ideally to a single or couple who could devote time to her that we unfortunately can no longer do.

Thank you in advance.
