Would You Become A Foster Carer For A Rescue Cat?
Animal Protection Trust (APT) is launching a special appeal, urging cat lovers to consider fostering one of the charity's many rescue cats.
APT is looking for short-term and long-term homes for mature and elderly cats. Quiet homes, without other pets and without young children are preferred as some of the cats can be quite shy. Expenses relating to caring for the cat, including food and veterinary costs, are covered by Animal Protection Trust.
Sue, Head of Cat Rehoming said: "Foster carers play a very important role in providing temporary homes for cats, whilst we try to find new owners for them. We do hope that cat lovers will come forward to offer their help."
Rosemary and John from Crawley who have fostered cats for Animal Protection Trust for over 3 years added: "It is a most rewarding job because we are able to make a huge difference to a cat's life. As a fosterer, you manage to transform an animal that has fallen on hard times - sometimes the cat has been abused, so they need to learn to trust and love humans again. It is lovely to see these foster cats find permanent loving homes."
