Help improve stray cat lives

‘There is nothing better than knowing you have made all the difference in their lives’ says a volunteer who fosters cats and kittens for a new charity.

Bay Cat Rescue is dedicated to improving the welfare of feral and stray cats.

The charity is on the lookout for volunteer fosterers to get close to cats and kittens in its care.

A fosterer is expected to look after the cat or kitten by feeding, watering, cleaning litter trays, providing a sleeping place and some time each day for play and socialisation.

Fosterers also need to take cats to the vets when necessary, although often another volunteer is able to undertake this.

Many of the cats in the care of Bay Cat Rescue are strays who are perfectly adapted to family life, and simply need food, shelter and love until they find their forever family.

Others, such as those that have been traumatised, may need extra effort in socialising and patience as they learn to trust humans again.

Bay Cat Rescue carefully matches Fosterers to the cats in their care, specific to the capabilities of the fosterer and the needs of the cat.

Contact Bay Cat Rescue on 07460636565, email baycatrescue@hotmail.com, visit baycatrescue.wix.com/bay-cat-rescue or facebook.com/baycatrescue if you think you would like to help by fostering a cat.
