How about being a responsible pet owner? Sometimes that means making hard decisions. My apologies if that sounds snarky, it isn't meant to be, there is just no kind way to say it.
I would hope, truly and sincerely, that you not abandon your cat if you cannot find it a home.
If circumstances progress to that level, I would prefer to see the cat humanely euthanized. Yes, there are arguments about 'if I leave the cat outside somewhere it may survive and find a different home
'...but I'd say that is only successful a very small portion of the time, due to people who already have pets and their pets (or established ferals) defend their territories, shelter and food resources, keeping your cat-in-need away. Most of the time, I'd say that kind of life is short, hard and ends badly for the cat with suffering of injury, illness and starvation very real probabilities before death occurs. No love. Just dying alone and abandoned.
I would much rather KNOW how my cat ended up, rather than not know and blindly hope everything turned out well for it.
Are your moving circumstances such that you absolutely cannot bring your cat with you? I wish you luck in being able to find your kitty a home.
