What is life like being a foster parent to orphaned kitties? How much work is involved in raising bottle baby kittens and getting them ready for adoption? Find out here!
I'm going on several years now of fostering kittens for Simply Cats, a local no-kill feline adoption center. It's a rewarding experience. They send babies my way and I socialize them and help them grow big and strong. Playful and loving. Healthy and fun. Then they leave my home to get spayed or neutered, micro-chipped and immunized, and then placed on the adoption floor back at Simply Cats.
Need a list of things to purchase before you bring foster kittens into your home? While many shelters provide your essentials, sometimes you may find yourself on your own. Take a look at my Essential Supplies for Raising Foster Kittens to find items that may be helpful to keep the kitties safe, warm, and healthy.

Why would I want to foster kittens, knowing I have to give them back?
