FOSTERING A CAT

OR KITTEN

What exactly does it mean to “foster” a cat or kitten? It means that you will be volunteering to take a cat into your home and care for it as you would your own pet. Fostering requires dedication, patience and a true commitment but it can be an extremely rewarding experience for both the cat and the foster parent!

Much of fostering involves “socializing” the cat as a lot of times the cat is just petrified. Once placed into a nurturing home environment the foster parent is better able to discover their fosters’ attributes and help the cat become more adoptable.

A PFPF foster coordinator will work with perspective foster parents to help them understand and implement PFPF guidelines and rules so that the best and safest care can be provided for the fostered pets. The PFPF supplies all the pet food, veterinary care and miscellaneous supplies but asks that the foster parent provide the litter.

The foster parent is responsible for taking their foster(s) to all scheduled veterinary appointments and bi-weekly adoption events in Warrenton.
