Without a shelter, which would be the focal point of our activities, we rely on help from a local cattery and a few fosterers. We are always desperately in need of new fosterers but this is not something that everyone can undertake as many people find it hard to foster a cat and then part with it to someone else!
Indeed, we have actually homed many cats this way. People approach us looking for a new cat but are not sure what they want, having perhaps recently lost a much loved pet. Sometimes, they agree to foster for us until they find what they want and frequently end up keeping one or other of the cats they have had as ‘guests’.
Other times, for older cats, particularly if they are on medication, we place them in ‘long-term’ foster homes where the new ‘owner’ will give them all the TLC they need and we will be responsible for the vet bills and ongoing treatment.
And then there are those people who are prepared to do the ‘short-term’ fostering until new homes are found. This is quite a difficult thing for a lot of people to do, as it is so easy to become very fond of any cat in your own home and therefore very hard to pass it on to a new home. These special people are very important to us and we are always on the lookout for others of a similar disposition!
