Foster Carer Application Form

Hello from the team at IFR.

We are happy you’ve chosen to give one of our kitties a chance at a new life in a foster capacity! Some cats and kittens take more time than others to settle in a new home, so we ask that you be patient with your new house guest as they settle in.

Some of our foster babies have had real ordeals, and others have been happy all their lives. No matter what type of kitty you’re taking on, it means the world to us that you’ve offered to help.

Fostering History

Integrating your foster cat(s) into your home


One of the conditions of fostering an IFR cat is that they must be kept indoors at all times. If you have a secure cat run that your foster kitty can venture into, that is fine also.

The following questions relate to this requirement for keeping your IFR foster indoors.


We ask that cats are kept in a small area of the home after moving in, whether or not you have other pets to introduce them to. Moving house can be stressful for cats, so we advise a cautionary approach. You can read about introducing new cats to your household here.

IFR cats must be kept indoors, or have access to a secure cat enclosure, at all times.

Don't forget to have a read of the information on our Foster Process page, including the section on home checks.

Fostering Agreement


The following conditions must be agreed to by you before taking on an IFR foster cat. Please read each condition carefully before ticking "I agree", and ensure that you and your entire household can comply with the conditions.

Liability Waiver


Please note that IFR cannot be held liable for any vetwork or other costs that may be incurred if these conditions are not adhered to.
