Summer is in full swing and that means tons of kittens!
Did you know the summer months mean tons of kittens for rescues and shelters across Ontario? Momma cats can have anywhere from 1-4 litters a year and that means a lotta kittens!
We want to get the word out about the adorable little fluff balls and the organizations helping them. There are not only tons of kittens available for adoption (in all shapes and sizes!), there are many more looking for foster homes.
If you're not looking to adopt right now, fostering can be a great way to get your kitten fix without the lifelong commitment. Some quick facts about fostering kittens:
- Organizations pay for all vet care (occasionally cat food/litter). - You provide food, love and care!
- Kittens are usually adopted fast, which means you'll most likely be fostering anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
- Kittens come in litters! You may be asked to foster a group of kittens or a pair. Or even a mom and kittens. Tell the organization what you're comfortable with.
- A spare room is more than adequate for fostering kittens, as long as it's kitty proofed (scroll down for info)!
We would love to connect you with an organization in your city that is looking for foster homes. Send an email to email@example.com (or respond to this email) with your interest in fostering and your location.
