Importance of Fostering Cats
When you take pets from shelter home to foster homes, it provides them nurturing and relaxed environment. Moreover, it gives a better indication to potential adopters about how pets will behave in their homes. Cats become less fearful of humans once they get out of the shelters. There are plenty of good reasons for fostering cats, such as:
· Increases Chances of Adoption
When animals are in foster care, they’re at their best. When cats are in foster care, they learn and adopt essential habits for indoor living. New pet owners won’t have to teach these habits, so they prefer to adopt cats from foster homes.
· Keeps Them Healthy
Like humans, cats need a nutritious diet and plenty of exercises to stay fit. In foster homes, cats can stretch and keep themselves active. Moreover, they’ll have more diversity in foods that will ensure that they get all the needed nutrition.

When you foster a pet, you save a life. Moreover, fostering a pet means that you will free up space for another pet. It will prevent shelters from getting overcrowded.
