What does fostering a cat involve?

When you foster, you agree to take a homeless cat into your home and give him or her love, care and attention, either for a predetermined period of time or until the cat is adopted.

Why do adoption groups need foster homes?

There are many reasons a cat might need foster care. Some of the most common include:

  • A rescue group doesn't have a physical shelter and depends on foster homes to care for cats until suitable homes are found.

  • A kitten is too young to be adopted and needs a safe place to stay until he or she is old enough to go to a forever home.

  • A cat is recovering from surgery, illness or injury and needs a safe place to recuperate.

  • A cat is showing signs of stress such as pacing or hiding in the shelter.

  • A cat has not lived in a home before or has not had much contact with people and needs to be socialized.

Why should I foster a cat?

Fostering a cat is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have (other than adopting, of course). By taking an animal in need temporarily into your home you're:

  • freeing up a spot so the  rescue can take in another cat.

  • giving your foster cat the time he needs to be ready for adoption.

  • helping the rescue learn more about the cat so he can end up in the best home possible.

  • socializing the cat to a home environment and possibly getting him used to being around other pets and different types of people.
