5. Forgotten Felines and our partner vets will be responsible for all medical decisions for your foster cat/kitten.
6. Forgotten Felines will provide any required vet treatment during the foster period. You must notify the foster coordinator in your area as soon as possible when the cat/kitten becomes unwell. We will arrange for the foster coordinator to visit your cat/kitten as soon as possible. If required, we will arrange for the cat/kitten to visit our vet. If you decide to use an alternative vet without prior arrangement with your area coordinator, you may not be reimbursed.
7. Your foster must not have access to the outdoors and be kept indoors at all times.
8.If your own cats are not up to date with vaccinations, please keep them separated from any foster cats/kittens that are not fully vaccinated. cats/kittens are considered fully vaccinated 14 days after final booster.
9. Your foster cat/kitten may not be relocated or placed with any other individuals or volunteers without the permission of a Forgotten Felines coordinator or trustee. If you are going away and have arranged a pet feeder/sitter, please notify your area coordinator and provide contact details.
10. If you choose to mix your foster cats/kittens with your own pets, this is at your own risk (including associated costs) Please note that while Forgotten Felines takes the utmost care with intake and vaccination protocols, there is always a risk that your foster cats/kittens could transmit an illness/infection to another animal they come into contact with. This risk is increased if your pets are not up to date with vaccinations.
11. If, at any time, you decide you can no longer foster, your coordinator will arrange for the kittens in your care to be fostered elsewhere. There is no long-term commitment. All we ask for, is as much advance notice as possible so we can begin looking for an alternate foster.
12. You agree to provide a safe location within your home where the foster can initially be separated from your other animals.
