Why do we need foster homes?
Meow Parlour is fortunate to have an adoption space that allows people to meet cats in an open setting. We need foster homes to help cats who aren’t adoption ready or need an alternative environment. Cats who aren’t adoption ready may be too young, under the weather, or need a safe space to recover post-surgery. Some cats don’t feel comfortable surrounded by so many other cats and a foster home helps us get to know them better and allows the cat a chance to de-stress.
What is fostering like?
Fostering doesn’t have to take up a lot space - remember that a typical NYC bathroom is still larger than a cage! When you foster for us, we work with you on your preferences and availability to match the right cat for you. Fostering can be as short as a few days and as long as a few weeks depending on the situation. A foster coordinator will work with you every step of the way. It’s an easy way to save a life on your terms! Meow Parlour provides a start kit of food and litter and covers any medical costs that may arise.
