Foster cats must live indoors. If your foster cat seems very curious about going outside or is constantly at the door waiting for the right moment, please take extra precautions to ensure that he or she doesn’t accidentally sneak out when you are coming or going.

If you want to take your foster cat outside on a leash and harness, you are welcome to do so in the safety of an enclosed yard or area. Please ensure that the leash and harness are the right size and fit well before you take your foster cat outside. You’ll also want to make sure the cat is comfortable wearing the harness before going out.

Remember, if your personal cat has access to the outdoors, he or she cannot interact with your foster cat. You’ll need to keep their living quarters separate.

Finally, please do not let your foster cat ride loose in a car. Use a carrier at all times to transport your foster cat to and from  appointments.
