Fostering a mom cat and 2 kittens - advice please

September 14th, 2010, 12:30 PM
Hi, My friend picked up a mom cat and two kittens that she has seen in her neighbourhood for some time now. She finally managed to trap them into the crates. My sister can foster them untill we can find a new home for them. the kittens are maybe 4 weeks old or so, but they are eating solids. Mom cat is very friendly. My friend was able to pick her up and put her in the create with no incidents.

We will be getting in touch with rescues to help find them homes and to help with vet bills, etc. We have never done that before - any advice for us?

Any other way for us to try and get them fostered? are there vets in toronto that offer discounted services for situations like that?

Toronto Cat Rescue- - does owner/fostering. Basically what happens is you foster the cat(s) until they are adopted. They will help with the cost of spaying and at the same time will give first shots, rabies, and flea meds. Beyond that the "owner" is responsible. I'm sorry I don't know any other rescues well enough in the TO area to tell you more.
There is Spay Central in Toronto as well. I will look up the number or maybe Chris will pop in and see this. She knows the number well. I think they do shots too @ $10 a shot???
You could phone around and ask vets if they foster cats/kittens. Good luck with that. I'm not sure how many vets actually do that.
This page actually has a few cat rescues. Maybe you can find one who can offer more help.

Hope that helps a little bit.
Thank you sister for me. She is an :angel: to look after these babies. :angel:

Great, thank you! We have also contacted TCR and they agreed to post the cats on their site.
