FAQs

General

Is this site free?

Yes, it’s free to post an ad for your cat or kitten to be rehomed or adopted.

Can I post “Wanted” ads?

No, this is not permitted as part of our Terms and Conditions. You can only post ads for cats or kittens to be rehomed or adopted.

Can I register even though I don’t have a cat or kitten to rehome?

Yes. Creating an account allows you to “favourite” an ad. When you sign in, you’ll see a heart icon on the photos. Your favourites can be viewed under My Account > Favourites.

The location slider on the search bar doesn’t work.

Perform a search first, then you can adjust the slider. To use this functionality, you must allow location sharing in your browser. Please note that location is dependent on your ISP so may not be totally accurate.

My Account

How do I view all my ads?

Click “My Account” at the top right of the page and then click “View my ads” under your profile picture.

How do I change my profile picture?

We use the Gravatar service (https://en.gravatar.com/) to display your profile picture. If you register for this site and Gravatar’s site using the same email address, your profile picture will be loaded in automatically.

NB: Profile pictures will only display for ads marked as “Commercial” or “Rescue/Rehoming Centres”.

When editing my account details, do I have to fill in my website, phone number, etc?

No, there is no obligation to enter any additional information, but you may wish to do so, to allow viewers of your ad to contact you more easily. For example, if you wish to receive enquiries by phone, then you may wish to add a contact number to your account details.

NB: Website and phone numbers will only display for ads marked as “Commercial” or “Rescue/Rehoming Centres”. We recommend that private sellers don’t display their phone number on the site for security reasons, but if you want to be contacted by phone, simply put your number in the ad’s description when creating or editing it.

How much money should I ask for?

It may be tempting to advertise “free to a good home”, but asking for even a small amount of money can help to ensure that your cat or kitten does go to a good home. In some appalling cases, animals given away for free have been used as food and live bait.

If you are rehoming a kitten, consider asking for an amount that will help recuperate some or all of your costs of raising the kitten thus far such as vet bills and kitten food. Or, if you are rehoming an older cat, you may wish to give any money you receive to your local animal rescue centre. It’s completely up to you.

If you’re not sure how much to ask for or if you are posting an ad on behalf of a charity, just specify a £0 value when you’re creating your ad and we’ll replace that in the listing with “Donation Applies”.
