Do you have a little extra space in your home, a bit of free time, and some love to share? If so, consider becoming a foster parent for a litter of homeless kittens or an adult cat or young cat. With the arrival of “kitten season” in early spring, animal shelters and rescue organizations are flooded with kittens who cannot be put up for adoption until they are eight weeks old. These groups rely on the assistance of volunteer foster parents to save lives by providing temporary care.
Everyday we receive requests begging for help from public shelters, desperate families and other organizations requesting us to help by taking animals who have no where else to go. Regularly, we get appeals from a large area, even outside of NC, for help with providing food, veterinary care, litter and assistance in saving lives. In about three years we have directly saved around 700 cats, kittens and dogs, accepting the injured, sick and those turned down by all other organizations who were full or unable to help. We have helped countless families keep their pets by providing food, litter and urgent vet care. We have paid for spay/neuters to reduce overpopulation for those who cannot afford to pay.

Shy Dogs and Cats: How to Help Timid Pets
The number of pet cats who go missing is difficult to estimate, as is the number of cats who, tragically, are never found. Sometimes cats stay lost even though their families do everything they can think of to find them. But many times, people don’t have the slightest idea how or where to even begin looking.
Is your cat not using the litter box? Cats stop using their litter boxes for a variety of reasons, including issues with the box or litter, dissatisfaction with the placement or number of boxes, changes in the environment inside or outside the house, and undiagnosed medical conditions. You may have to investigate several possibilities before you understand what your cat is trying to tell you, but most issues are easy to remedy.
