Foster's provide a safe space for kittens to land before finding their furever homes. While fostering for Tiny Miracles Kitten Rescue you will be paired with a mentor who will be there to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your foster kittens. We provide all the formula, bottle feeding supplies, medical treatments, as well as wet/dry food and litter when available.
Kittens can stay with a foster anywhere from 4-10 weeks depending on the needs of the kitten and type of foster home. Below are some of the different type of foster homes needed all kitten season long!
Bottle babies require around-the-clock care and are a great fit for fosters who work from home or do not work. Feedings range from 2-4 hours. Stimulating and keeping these babies warm are huge components for this age group.
Mamas and Babies
Mamas and babies require a low-stress environment, preferably without lots of other animals. Mamas could be pregnant or already have kittens. This is a great age group to see kittens grow up from a few days old without having to bottle feed them.
(3-5 weeks old)
Kittens 3-5 weeks will need care every 4-6 hours. They might still want a bottle if wet food isn't enough. Kittens this age will need often need help transitioning to wet food with a slurry mixture.
(4-8 weeks old)
Weaned Kittens are great for people that work or are on the go on a lot. They'd need to be fed 3-4 times a day. These kittens are fairly independent, but love to play and cuddle with their humans. These kittens stay with their fosters until adopted after turning 8 weeks old.
Special needs kittens include CH, Swimmers Syndrome, Blind, Deaf, disabilities, etc. Fosters will need to understand the conditions and be willing to work with the kittens to ensure the best life possible.
