All the cats and kittens in this album currently require a foster carer to take them in until they find their forever homes. Hover over each cat's photo below to learn more about them.
Fostering rescued cats and kittens can be one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can have. It can be very enjoyable for many people including the elderly. If you are working part time, or full time, it can be so nice to come home to the company of a cat. All veterinary costs are covered by BFF,this includes flea, worming, two vaccines, desexing, microchipping and any other veterinary needs the cat or kitten may have. Working from home? The love of a foster cat is like no other. They will keep you good company. Children, dogs and a busy house? That's also great, we have cats with all kinds of personalities that we are looking to socialise in a loving home. If you thinking of getting a fur friend for your family fostering is a great way to find a perfect match! Its like try before you buy and often our carer's do find that special one and we call call it a 'Foster Fail' and the cat and carer both get to enjoy their happy ever after. The only perfect home for a foster cat or kitten is a loving one. We are a "no kill" rescue, so all of our cats and kittens will remain in foster care until a home is found for them. This can take a day, a week, a month or a year, sometimes less sometimes more.You will need to ensure you are going to be able to keep the cat secure inside your home, we here at BFF have an 'Indoor Cat Only" policy. The only exception to this rule is a large enclosure or well constructed cat run. This is to ensure the safety of all of our cats. You will be required to travel to and from our nominated veterinary clinics for the cats required vet care, so a reliable car is a must. Please check our listed vets under the Our Vets tab on our website to ensure you are within a comfortable travel distance from your home. You will also need a reliable mobile phone or home phone with and answering machine or service. Our coordinators will need to inform you of any inquiries we have about the cat in your care. You must be willing to make appointment times with prospective new owners to come into your home on an agreed time and day for them to meet and greet the cat/s in your care. Hungry tummies need feeding too, so you will be required to purchase food for your foster cat/s, so please keep this in mind when considering how many you would like to foster, it may not reflect well on your budget if you have a low income. Then there is the tail end of things! You will need to have good hygiene for your cats litter trays. They will need to be cleaned daily by removing fecal matter and changing the entire litter every second day to fresh clean litter. There are also special needs cats and kittens that come into our care, so if you have any prior experience in the areas of whelping, flu, ringworm, neglect care, abuse rehabilitation, colony rescue and taming or abandoned kitten care, we would love to hear from you! Not too sure about it all and would like some more information? We are more than happy to have a chat to you and answer any questions that you may have!
