*New fostering opportunities will be coming very soon*
Our Fostering Team are very important to us. Please take a minute to read about one of our wonderful fosterers below:
Introducing Super Sue
I started volunteering at the RSPCA in 2009, working with rabbits and ferrets and then cats. My experience goes back to October 2009 when I was asked to foster Rosie, a tiny kitten, who needed some TLC as she had been separated from her mum. She was later adopted by my neighbours.
Over the years I have fostered 38 cats, mostly for the same reason but sometimes they were recovering from surgery or an injury. More recently the cats I have fostered came to me because they were unhappy in the cattery but soon showed their real character once in a home environment. It is always nice to see a cat come out of its shell and find a new, loving home. They are greatly missed but there is always another cat needing help. The RSPCA Suffolk Central Branch staff have always been very supportive when the odd problem arises, and with ensuring I have received help with any special dietary needs and medication.
I find fostering very rewarding BUT you have to have the mindset that no matter how attached you get to the cat, it is looking for a new permanent home and there is always another cat needing your help as a fosterer.
