With so many people stuck at home, many people are adopting cats and dogs. However, many people are also fostering cats and dogs, which helps socialize the animals so they can be adopted by someone else later.
So if you’d like the company of a pet without the long-term requirements, consider fostering a pet. Just make sure you provide enough food, bedding, and litter boxes for your foster cat.
Who knows? If this pandemic goes on for long, you might want to foster multiple animals over time and help find good homes for lots of needy animals.
