Desperately seeking foster families for cats

The SPA Creuse refuges does not have a cattery and the Ecole des Chats is full to bursting.

We can save these little bundles of fluff with a network of foster families.

What is a foster family?  What does it do? What are the responsibilities? How does it work?

A foster family is a TEMPORARY home for kittens until they are adopted.  Personally I have never kept a kitten longer than 2 months, but this might not be the case for every single kitten.

The foster family agrees to take a little kitten into their home.  We recommend a quarantine period of 15 days in a room isolated from other cats, until the cat has seen our vet for a checkup, worming and first vaccination.  (The quarantine room could even be the bathroom!)

Veterinary bills are paid by the SPA, so the foster family has nothing to pay. 

Depending on what we have in stock, we can also supply the foster family with food, a litter box, feeding bowls, bedding and toys…

The foster family is expected to provide cat litter and food if we have insufficient kitten food.

Under a “Foster Family Contract”, the foster family agrees to take care of the animal, to pamper it as if it was one of their own, to socialise and house train it.

The foster family must also provide the SPA with photos so we can publish details of the animals through our communications networks.

Don’t be afraid, being a foster family is a wonderful and rewarding experience!

We are happy to give any further information you may need.
