Become a Foster

Fostering cats and kittens can be one of the most rewarding ways to make the world a better place! Cats and kittens come to 9 Lives Rescue often because their situation is desperate. If you decide to become a foster home for cats or kittens in need, you are saving lives.

What you need:

  • an area that is suitable for the cat(s) you are going to care for. It needs to be big enough for the cat to get exercise appropriate to its situation.
  • a litter box, and food and water dishes. 9 Lives can provide you with those items.
  • food. 9 Lives has food donations that are available to our fosters.
  • a safe place. Every cat needs a small place where they can go and feel safe.
  • a place to scratch, like a horizontal scratch pad or a vertical post.
  • enrichment and stimulation in the form of toys, games, climbing areas, etc.
  • loving care and attention!
