(Stornoway) Fosterer for cat or mother and kittens
When We Need You
From 16/01/2008 onwards
Fosterers are home owners (No council house tennants please) who are interested in the welfare of cats, and have a spare room, which can be used solely for 1 cat or 1 mother cat and kittens, or kittens. The fosterer would be supplied with a cat pen (if needed), cat litter trays, food and feeding bowls and anything else that's needed i.e. Bedding, cleaning cloths, disinfectant. The fosterer would need to clean out the litter trays every 2 or 3 days as needed, and clean the food bowls regularly. You would be given cat toys and would encourage the cat or kittens to play with these. Some cats or kittens are easily frightened and need to be spoken to gently.
About Cats Protection League (Western Isles)
