CATS Protection Adoption Center Evesham will be hosting an online event for all cat lovers interested in being a volunteer foster home for the organization.
The online event takes place on Sunday, August 14 at 9 a.m. for anyone interested in supporting cats without leaving their homes.
Clara Youden, volunteer team leader, said: “We know that many people are curious about fostering cats or have added it to their ‘to do list’ because they just can’t find it. time to look at the practical aspects.
“So we’re hosting an online event on a Sunday morning that allows people to join in while having their morning cup of coffee.
“All they need to do is register, then join the event, listen and ask questions if they wish before continuing with the rest of their day.
“Fostering allows cat lovers to enjoy hands-on cat care without the long-term responsibility of the pet owner. We provide everything our foster families need to create the temporary home cats – from food, toys and litter to veterinary care.
“It’s a wonderful way to have a cat or multiple cats in your life for a relatively short period of time.

“Many of our foster families will care for cats until they are home, then take a break before taking in another cat or kittens.”
Foster families will care for cats in their own home until a new owner can be found.
No special equipment is needed, but cat fosters should have a spare room where their foster cat can safely enjoy life in a home.
The center took in nearly 200 cats last year and helped many more.
Among the cats that have recently been placed in foster care are nine-week-old kittens Taco, Tequila and Nacho.

A spokesperson for the adoption center said they were taken into care for their own safety just three weeks after one of their siblings was attacked by a dog and did not survive.
They all needed hand-raising and, in addition to round-the-clock care, were paired with a “ticking tiger” toy that mimics the heartbeat of a mother cat.
Luckily, the distinctive trio, consisting of gray tabby, blue tortoiseshell and pale ginger, are now thriving and have their own homes ready to go.
