Need Help Re-Homing a Cat

I need some help, advice, resources, whatever you have that might help my situation. 

My mom and I have decided to re home Jasper, one of our cats, since he’s recently not okay with being in a multi cat household and regularly goes after our other cats and has bitten both of us three times total: each time we were trying to break up an altercation between cats. My mom has taken him to the vet clinic at Cat Depot in Sarasota (which btw, if you haven’t been you should go it sounds amazing), and the vet said yes to rehoming, but didn’t have many resources and agrees with us that surrendering him to a shelter would only make him more fearful and more aggressive. He agrees that we have exhausted all medical possibilities; his labs come back normal, he’s healthy, and he likely has a sudden onset of some neurological issue which puts him into a rage around other cats, including cats he’s been around for nearly a decade.  Wherever he goes, he has to be an only cat. He’s already down in Florida with my mom and we’d like to be able to find him a new home before the final move here in a couple weeks. If anyone knows of anyone who knows cats, knows cat behavior, and is looking to adopt a special needs cat, please message me.

Is your cat only destructive when you're not home? My cat likes to get into shit he's not supposed to when no one is around to re-direct him. Our solution was to lock him in bad cat prison (AKA the bathroom) when no one his home or awake to supervise him. It's easier to manage the things he has access to in there, and I know I'm not going to come home to a destroyed house, or worse a dead cat because he's nommed on something dangerous.

Here’s the horrible, horrible response I have to that: number one, I have a roommate who REFUSES to keep the bathroom door closed and the toilet lid shut like I ask, and he’s home more than I am.

Number two: Pumpkin gets MORE anxious when cooped up in small spaces.  I’d come home to a destroyed bathroom, and a roommate who carelessly throws up his hands and goes “well I didn’t notice.”

Number three: I’m the only one who takes care of him.  For me to lock him up during the day while I’m gone would mean locking him up for a VERY long time each day, which would worsen his anxiety.

Pumpkin gets into shit when I’m either not around or not conscious.  He gets most destructive when I’m asleep.

Hey guys so my girlfriend desperately needs help re-homing her cat. He’s currently in Long Island and her ex can’t keep him anymore because she’s moving. She texted Courtney today saying she was going to drop him off at a shelter, which we REALLY don’t want. We would take him but I have allergies and he’s long-haired, plus my cat doesn’t get along with others.

If anyone in New York would like a really lovely 9-year old male long grey-haired cat named Franklin, please send me a message. He is older which makes him less adoptable and I can’t let him sit in a cage in a shelter. 

Please send me a message if you can help!

Additionally, if anyone in the DC/Northern VA area or between there and NY would like him we will happily retrieve him and bring him to you.

Here’s a picture, and please signal boost if you can!
