Fostering

Could you foster a cat?

We are always looking for patient and understanding people who can offer short term foster care to some of our cats. 

Many cats that we take in have either suffered or are not used to the care and affection that they deserved. Living with a foster family helps to provide them with one-to-one care. Allowing them to build up their confidence and get used to a normal lifestyle.

Other cats don't cope well in an animal centre environment. This is where we need people to take them in to provide them with a real home, even if it is only on a temporary basis.

What does a fostering role entail? 

Fostering cats can be a pleasurable experience. It's rewarding to know that you played a key part in the rehoming process when a foster animal is successfully rehomed.

You will be:

  • Caring for cats in your own home until they can be rehomed
  • Taking care of cats who might be recuperating from an operation or cannot cope with centre life
  • Taking care of pregnant females or mums and litters
  • Providing all the care they need – feeding, socialising, giving medication and grooming.

To foster a cat, you will need to:

  • Have experience of handling and caring for cats 
  • Have use of suitable transport
  • Preferably have no other pets 
  • To follow RSPCA policy and practices for fostering animals. 

All equipment, food, litter and medication will be provided. 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer fosterer, please complete and return the application form below.

Bonnie - Oriental cross, chocolate tortie, female 2 years old. Hero - Oriental cross, Chocolate, male, 14 weeks old.Bonnie and Hero are stunning cats and both very loving. Hero has learnt well from his beloved mum and has picked up on her lovely little ways, being every bit as affectionate. Bonnie is such a devoted mum to her boy and Hero can do no wrong in her eyes. He's a cheeky chap and they enjoy many games together. They are looking forward to a home where they can enjoy having more space to have fun, and making some more human friends to join in with. They need a home away from busy roads and with someone who is home for most of the day, in an older family setup.
Ginger and white DLH, female, 11 years old approx.Tess is a very loveable and enjoys snuggling up on your lap for a snooze. She would be a perfect companion for someone looking for a homely cat. Her confidence has come on leaps and bounds since she came to us. When she first arrived, she was in shock initially and was very scared of the other cats around her. Although still not keen on her feline neighbours, she's realised she's safe and this has allowed her loving nature to shine through. She would therefore really benefit from a home as only pet and without young children where she can kick back and relax. Whoever adopts this gorgeous girl will be very lucky and well rewarded. Currently with our fosterer please ask for details if you are interested in adopting.
Tabby DSH, female, 1 year approx.Henrietta has come on such a long way with her confidence since she arrived at the cattery. With lots of TLC and trust building, she's gone from a scared little cat, too afraid to allow contact, to popping out of her pod to sit on your lap for a fuss (and a few cheeky treats). She's also started to explore the cattery a little, but comes back to us for a bit of rub round for reassurance. She's an amazing little character who, with a nurturing and committed owner or older family, will blossom and grow in confidence all the more. She's such a gentle cat, and with not a bad bone in her body, she's looking for someone to give her a second chance.
