Cat carers desperately needed for local feline charity

Evesham Editorial 27th Jan, 2021   0

AN EVESHAM cat adoption centre is looking for cat-lovers to care for unwanted and abandoned cats while they wait to find a new owner.

Cats Protection’s Evesham Adoption Centre needs cat fosterers who can offer a temporary home to one or more cats while they get back on their paws. Fostering is hands-on cat welfare work looking after felines on a short-term voluntary basis and taking care of all their daily needs.

“Cat fosterers play a vital role in our charity by caring for cats in their own home until a new owner can be found,” said Clara Youden, Volunteer Team Leader for the centre.

“Cat fosterers do need to have a spare room for the sole purpose of fostering and, of course, a love of cats is a must. The charity will provide plenty of assistance and support materials for all fosterers.”

“Offering a temporary home to a cat in need can be an incredibly rewarding experience, and becoming a volunteer for Cats Protection is a great way to meet new friends – both human and feline!”

Cats Protection provides fosterers with all they need to look after the cats and kittens in their care, including veterinary treatment, food, litter, bedding and toys.

The adoption centre is currently running a Hands-Free Homing scheme so cats can still be adopted within Covid-19 restrictions. Since launching Hands-Free Homing, Cats Protection has rehomed over 15,000 cats across the UK.
