I would go to the rescue, as it is a very busy time, and it is easy to forget about people to want to help. I would definitely get rescue back up before taking cats from freeads though, partly to cover vet care and food, and partly from a rehoming aspect, it will be very hard to rehome if you aren't known.
Please spay your cat

bramble, you can only do so much. You've offered a safe place for him to stay while a permanent home is found and that's all you can do. Well done for trying to help.

That's all she said? See, that's what worries me - she's not wanting to transport him; surely she wants to know where he'd be going? :scared:

I would suggest you contact your local rescues and see if they need anyone, make sure its on the agreement that all costs are met by the rescue eg vet bills litter food so that you can contribute what you can but are not ending up reliable.

You should be expected to keep fosters away from your own pets and it would be wise to vaccinate your existing animals to protect against such evils as enteritis which can wipe out a household  :(
Flu, stomach bugs and ringworm are contaigous but are not as life threatening, personally i wouldnt risk these either but people do mix animals up so its something to carefully think about.

If your not sure what rescues are around catchat should point you in the right direction  ;D

hi all.not sure if this is right place to post! wondered if there are any rescues out there who could make use of me as a foster carer? we have 4 rescued cats and 4 cat friendly rescue dogs. we live in derbyshire, a few miles from derby. we dont have loads of money but i have the time and love to help other cats or kittens if anyone is interested.   bramble
