Time commitment:

Depending on your foster cat’s individual needs we ask you have some spare time to allow your cat to settle into their new environment, and you have flexibility to transport animals when needed.

Hand rear kittens need full time commitment as they often require feeding every 2 to 4 hours, 24hours per day.

We provide all food, cat litter, bedding, toys and anything else we feel may be needed to help your foster cat settle.

We also provide all medication where needed.

You will receive training where necessary and be given a detailed background on any medical issues or behavioural concerns. You will have a key worker who will be available for regular updates about your cats rehome status, or medical needs. They will also be on hand to offer reassurance to you and answer any concerns.

  • You must be a homeowner or be able to provide written landlord permission that you are able to have a pet in the home
