Looks like I'm going to be fostering

I contacted a rescue group yesterday about a special needs kitten that was on craigslist, and I have been emailing back and forth with the contact there yesterday and today. If we are able to get the kitten and his littermate I am going to foster them, otherwise I told them I could do 1 dog, 1 cat, or a couple of kittens. It looks like it will be a cat first, as they just pulled 39 cats from a shelter today :eek: but I would like to foster a dog in the future.

I read through their contracts and I was pleased with everything. They ask alot of questions, but the only thing listed as a requirement for adopters is that all animals in the house be spayed/neutered. There are alot of requirements for fosters but I am good with all of them. It also seems like they do alot to get the pets adopted, nice website, petfinder, adoption events every week.

Anyone have any suggestions or experiences?

Compared to dogs, cats (especially adults), are extremely hard to adopt out. For us I think the average amount of time a cat is in rescue vs a dog is something like 1-2 months more for kittens and 4-6 months for adults. We have some that have been in the rescue for over a year. It's just hard for cats.
