How fostering assisted a nervous cat to be adopted

Here's  a video of Autumn in our foster program. Sometimes we get cats in who are very nervous, and it takes time to bring them round. However a few times, that process is just moving too slow as the cat is so stressed by the cattery environment. This is when we look to foster homes – time spent in a foster home can speed up the rehabilitation time, decrease stress and let us see the cat's true nature.

Watch the video to see Autumn's progress over the weeks.

The best news is, because we could show someone how Autumn will be, rather than seeing just a hiding ball in the corner, Autumn was recently adopted! A huge thank you to Lisa, our foster volunteer, for her care and time.
