Cat Fostering & Socialising

Caring and patient animal lovers required for timid and shy cats in our care!

All of the animals who come into our care deserve the best and for some cats that means spending time in one of our wonderful foster homes. A number of cats come into our care and need some extra love and care; they are our scaredy cats. To prepare these vulnerable cats for rehoming we need the support of animal lovers just like you. Our foster homes help these cats overcome their fear and uncertainty by allowing them the time and patience to build their confidence in a calm home environment.

The cats who would benefit most from a dedicated and compassionate foster home are young kittens and adult cats who are struggling to adjust to the changes happening around them.

The kittens have often been born outside or in multi-cat households where they have often had little socialising and will arrive as small hissy houseguests.  With time and patience they learn to trust and will transform under your care into happy and confident cats. Our timid adult cats may be fearful and reserved in the cattery and so will hide away attempting to avoid human contact.  Many of these cats make great improvements in a home environment and this valuable support allows us to rehome them to the loving homes they deserve.
