Search for Indoor Fosterers

20 January 2020

Do you love cats?

Do you own your property?

Fancy being an indoor cat fosterer?

Cats Protection’s Ely and District Branch is looking to recruit indoor fosterers to help care for unwanted and abandoned kittens and cats.

The Branch, which is run entirely by volunteers needs people who can offer a temporary home to one or more cats, or lots of lovely kittens, whilst they get back on their paws.

Cat fostering is hands-on cat welfare work looking after felines on a short-term basis in a dedicated room in your house – you must own your property to foster cats.

“Cat fosterers play a vital role in our charity by caring for cats in their own home until a new owner can be found,” said Theresa Langford, Branch Co-ordinator.

Fostering is not just cat cuddling and it involves a significant commitment on a daily basis. 

Ely and District Cats Protection Branch are a close-knit group and give a lot of support to each other and can always help out when you need to go on holiday etc.

All equipment is provided and all expenses e.g. food, litter, medication, are covered by the Branch. You are not paid to foster cats.


Ideally fosterers will drive, with their own car or live close to a vet practice as part of the role involves taking the cats to the vets when required. But if you don’t have a car, we can help out with these tasks


For indoor fostering you must have a room dedicated for foster cats - where your own cats are not allowed to go and it is does not have other uses. This room could be for one cat or a mother and kittens or older kittens for socialising etc.


We are also looking for people who could foster on an occasional/emergency basis – you could just help us out for a short period of time and it does not have to be a long-term commitment.
