Cat or Kittens
Cat Network does not have a shelter, so we rely on foster homes
and boarding at local vet clinics to house cats awaiting adoption.
Foster homes provide a wonderful opportunity to socialize cats to
a home environment, make them comfortable during their wait for
a permanent home, and evaluate their personality to help match them
up with the perfect adopter.
Network is often in need of short or long term foster homes for
cats and kittens, and occasionally foster care for pre-wean kittens.
Fostering cats and kittens can be a very rewarding and fun experience,
but it is also an important responsibility.
homes can expect from Stanford Cat Network:
- Cats and
kittens are examined by a vet, tested for FIV and FeLv, vaccinated,
dewormed, treated for fleas and mites, and spayed or neutered
if over 4 months before they may go to a foster home.
- A playpen
cage can be provided by SCN to confine the cat or kittens to help
with socialization, avoid escapes, and/or isolate from other pets.
- Food and
litter can be provided although we appreciate the generosity of
many foster homes who provide these items as a donation.
- If you agree
to foster a cat or kitten for a specific period, we will take
the cat back into boarding or transfer to another foster home
promptly if not adopted by the end of that period
- A foster
agreement will be signed to clarify the agreement for both parties
you are interested in fostering a cat or kittens immediately or

Home Profile so that we can learn more about your expectations
and experience before matching you up with a foster cat or kitten.
