FOSDOPTION - yes it is a thing!!

So here at Urban Kittens we have been thinking about why it can be difficult for families to commit to adopting a kitten or cat and how we could maybe help. Mainly because there are so many felines out there needing help with a large number of small - large rescues and of course, the Pounds.

Enter FOSDOPTION!!

The process is basically fostering with the intention to adopt. We always need foster carers and we also notice that foster fails happen a fair bit. We recognise that some people may have never owned a kitten/cat before and want to experience pet ownership but with a level of support. (support you just don't get when you go to a Pound to adopt). We can offer that support.

To FOSDOPT you go through the same process that a potential foster carer would - contact us, fill out a form, have a phone interview and finally a home visit. If everyone is agreeable (including the kitten committee), you get the kitten/cat/s

The difference to a regular adoption is this - you receive the usual fostering assistance with food, litter, equipment, etc and also support - ask us questions, get help.

We understand that there will come a time for you to decide whether to actually adopt and we can be a tad flexible with this and work with people on an individual basis.

It's basically a YOU help US and WE HELP YOU & when you do adopt the fee for adoption is greatly reduced.

Not all kittens/cats will be available for FOSDOPT - we will feature a couple each week (look out for the first couple being posted tomorrow).

We really hope this will be another way that will help people consider pet ownership 😉
