    I've posted this:

    http://www.petforums.co.uk/cat-rescue-adoption/158614-short-term-foster-possibly-3-cats.html

    on the Cat Rescue but thought I'd try here :eek:

    My eldest sister has serious mental health issues & is likely to be sectioned in the next 2/3 weeks - she refuses medication which will help her & isn't in a good place at the moment :(

    Her cats are her babies - she's worried about them & how they'll end up if she has to have a spell in hospital.

    Has anyone any suggestions/advice on how to help her? She could put them in a cattery but she's against that idea because of the possible effects on them, she doesn't know how long she'll have to stay in for (if at all).

    Thanks. x

    i hope you find someone to help you out,

    i would ask my gran for you as she wants a cat at the moment but her partners dead set on her now having one, but i can ask if you want? maybe with it only being a foster he'll be more up for it :)

    Thanks for your comments/offer.... My sisters cats would need to go together - which is a problem, I know - 3 adult female cats who are fairly feral, they 'know' my sister & adore her but aren't good with strangers.
    Not looking good really, is it? :(

    I know, it's so difficult - I mean, they are nice cats but being quite feral they're fairly particular :(
    I hope she doesn't have to go to hospital, though, saying that, I think it would be best for her - so really, I wish she wasn't ill... :(
    Thanks though.xxx

    Is there anyone who could live in your sisters house with them? I just worry with cats they can stray from new homes to find their old one :(

    You can get pet sitters who do that but it will cost and I dont know how much. Hope your sister is OK x
