Loc: Bromborough
I have a ginger male called Murphy. He is around 15 to 16 years old. He was a stray cat on the street I live on when years ago he kept coming back after his owner moved down the road. They gave up coming back for him years ago. Basically I moved in the street 2 years ago as a house share with a woman who owns the house and has her own 2 cats.

After much pestering she finally let me keep him in the house and it has been happy days for 2 years even though he doesn't get on with her male cat. Well anyway, she has got a new fella and he lives down south and she is going to move down there. She said I could stay in the house and pay her mortgage and look after her 2 cats as well as Murphy because her boyfriend doesn't like cats, but I can't afford it so I am looking for another house share and will be moving out when she has found a job down south. Her mum and dad are having her 2 cats but Murphy is my responsibility, so they won't have him too. She has said it is best if he is put down. Unfortunately that seems the only option as I can't afford my own place at this moment in time so I will be house sharing again and it's not going to work out moving an old cat away from his home even if I could take him. I don't want to take him to the vets to be put down, he has never been in a car, so wanted them to come and do it at home wh e n the time comes and I have to move. Does anyone know what home euthanasia costs?

I agree, but what can I do? She reckons she can give me a minimum of 6 weeks notice and it could be at least July before that happens. I am hoping in a way he dies naturally before then, I don't like the thought of euthanasia but I can't just leave him here. He is too old to live on the street now.

I was thinking of even trying to pay her mortgage and stay here were I live now, but he might die within a month, then am stuck paying someone elses mortgage til the notice period is up.

If you tell the mortgage lender you intend to rent then that is enough, they came a few weeks ago. I would love to take him with me, but finding a house share in Bromborough willing to have a cat there will be difficult.

This is Murphy recently, looking more rough than in months gone by. I suspect he may be diabetic or have hyperthyroidism as he lost quite a bit of weight, but started putting it back on again so maybe he was just a little poorly, still happy as ever though.

Yeah he is, he is a great cat, he sometimes tries to bite you when playing and has some matted fur near his tail that he won't let me cut out, but all round good cat. I wish that woman I do house share with didn't have that boyfriend, I would have been able to stay then.

I want to find someone in the Bromborough area who would have him so I could still see him every so often easily enough. I would be prepared to supply his food, I would rather that option of someone having him than have to get him put down when he is happy etc, I would feel bad.
