International Cat Day

Relevant tags:

Today is International Cat Day, at FCA fostering when you have pets it isn’t a problem.  In fact pets can help children to settle into their new home.  As part of the assessment process, we will complete a pet questionnaire to help determine that your pet is safe to be around foster children.

But did you know cats can be a real benefit and bring so much to a child’s life.  Not only by offering companionship but also helping to teach children important life lessons, for example, practice good social skills and have a sense of responsibility.  Cats can also be a source of happiness during difficult times.  Their purr is therapeutic and stroking a cat is known to help reduce stress levels.

Cats too are part of the fostering family and many families can’t image life without them.
