Scared older kitten and one of Misty's siblings. She was born with one kidney and had an URI when we found her in snowy Jan without a home.

About

We need people who have at least some experience with cats/kittens to foster one or two strays.Any amount of time is helpful. If you're uncertain about making a long term commitment, a short term agreement can be made. For example, a first time foster or someone who wants to help, but can only do so for limited time, we have short term agreements of 4-6 weeks or whatever fits you best.

Sometimes it only takes a short time for socialization, it all depends on their background story. However, if you're new and great at it and loves it, the agreement can be extended.For those who have limited time or decide it's not for them, a foster agreement can be terminated by either party at anytime.

We can loan you the ideal fostering setup if needed or if you have a bathroom or spareroom to keep the cat in close quarters where they can't hide and run away for effective socialization that can work, but we prefer you start out with one of our large wire dog kennels and small litter boxes we loan out to fosters unless your setup is a bathroom. We can asesss the spare bedroom, whether a kennel is needed, as the state requires we inspect the foster setup.

We also provide training and excellent reading references as a guide. This fostering is only for socialization for adoption preparation. At no point will you deal with adopters unless that is something that interests you, and we can discuss that when the cat is ready to be listed.
