    firstly get in touch with a rescue and see if they need foster homes, each one is a little different so ask them what they require. as for vets etc the rescues use their own vets so if there was something wrong you would have contact info etc or someone would come and take the cat to the vet. Check out catchat.org for a list of rescues in your area

    I work for cat protection in my local area and we always need help!
    I work on the phones and then this summer I was a foster mummy!
    I had 4 cats and kept 2 (ops! I got attached!)

    Its hard work! I was surprised! At that point I had my 2 and they 4 kittens and 6 cats is a lot of work! 3 litter trays to clean, 6 hungry mouths to feed 3 times a day!

    Its nice tho! Always somone to cuddle!

    Generally you would have then 2-4 weeks and cp would give you food and litter and you would probs need to take them to the vet for jabs that cp pay for.

    Its all good fun!

    Maybe get intouch with cats protection in your area!?
