Typical Adoption Application Questions

Our rescue's adoption application asks the applicant if they've ever had pets before and if so what happened to them? Another question they ask ask is if they plan to declaw the cat.

Tips For Fostering Kittens

I would clean out an extra room that is the "cat room" for fostering kittens. Even if you don't have any other pets, kittens that young should be kept in a small room until 5-8 weeks, or until ready. It's also helpful if people were to be opening outside doors or something ever. Have your supplies ready - including all paper towels, trash bags, cleaner, toys, water and food RIGHT there. It's a pain to keep running out for stuff. Give them options on where they want to sleep or sit or play in the room. They don't like to be told what to do and when. Be very quiet and only allow one to two people in the room at first. Too many people overwhelm even the most affectionate cat! Find a good vet and don't be afraid to ask the fostering organization a lot of questions about the cats. If anything goes awry, call them and ask them something, or if it's big, call the vet or just go.
