Day 24: Adopt or foster a cat

Cats ProtectionCats protection always need good homes – could this be the year you take the plunge?

They also really appreciate donations of kitten and cat food.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity. Gildersome is the charity’s new pilot centre, run on dedicated volunteer assistance. Unlike the 30 Adoption Centres, Gildersome does not have the facilities to take stray and unwanted cats/kittens directly into the centre. Instead, we rely upon a band of faithful fosterers to get cats “fit for homing”, so that they can then come into the centre and find their new forever homes

Practical Considerations
Foster carers look after cats that have been abandoned or is stray until a new permanent home can be found for them. The cats stays indoors while it is with you. You’ll be supported by the Cats protection team who can take over if you need to go away for a holiday.
