Foster Care Terms and Conditions
Be open and willing to learn
There may be tasks you have not done before, such as cleaning a litter box or carrying a cat. Our volunteers will be available to guide you, but we require you to have a positive learning attitude and a willingness to try.
Do not bring any food to the cattery
We want to avoid unnecessary messes, like those that might happen when cats knock over drinks or get into food they should not be eating. If you wish to donate food, check with our volunteers first and they can tell you the specific foods our cats need.
Always ask before feeding our cats
Some of our cats have allergies and dietary restrictions due to various health conditions. Always consult the volunteer in charge before feeding any of our cats.
