Hi. I rescue and foster kittens. I don't do this full time and I do it because Malaysia needs more fosterers for vulnerable animals.

FAQs for Kitten Adoption
1. What is kitten fostering.

Kitten fostering is when someone, a fosterer, takes care of abandoned/orphaned kittens until they are big enough to be adopted. Very young kittens are vulnerable and without care they will surely perish.

2. Why should spaying/neutering be mandatory for my fosters?

These kittens were rescued because they are unwanted. Their parents are stray cats or cats with owner who could not be bothered to neuter/spay them. They suffer. Some die. I do not want this to happen to my foster kittens. There are many more out there. Please do not be part of the problem.

3. Why can't fosterers spay/neuter the kittens?

In Malaysia, vets will only spay/neuter a cat when they reach maturity. They also have to undergo vaccinations 3 times, one month apart. If I were to wait for these kittens to mature, they are going to have a harder time to bond with their new parents later on. As an adult, they will have a habit you may dislike and it may be a challenge to train them to your lifestyle.

4. Why am I not keeping my foster kittens?

I wish I could but I do not have the time, space and resources to keep all my foster kittens. When kittens get adopted to a new family, I can can rescue and foster more kittens out there.

5. At what age is a kitten ready for adoption?

At 7 to 8 weeks, or more than 700 grams kittens are fully weaned. They eat solid food and eat less frequently. At this age, they should eat at least 4-5 hourly during the day and can sleep throughout the night. They are more robust and well-trained with a litterbox.

6. Why is there an adoption fee?

Adoption fee is placed to reimburse a small fraction of the cost of raising a kitten. This is to ensure future fostering can be done as I do this alone, with my own money without any support from any organization.

To discourage irresponsible people from reselling/breeding some desirable breed of kittens.

7. How much does it cost to raise one newborn kitten to adoptable age?

Kitten milk replacer RM 150 (4 weeks)
Food RM 70 (vet prescribed food costs more if needed) (after weaning for 4 weeks)
Probiotics, health supplements RM 30
Vaccination, deworming, delousing RM 70

Total RM 320
This does not include trips to vet when they are sick, specialized nursing and neonatal equipment.

8. Why should spaying/neutering be mandatory for my fosters?

These kittens were rescued because they are unwanted. Their parents are stray cats or cats with owner who could not be bothered to neuter/spay them. They suffer. Some die. I do not want this to happen to my foster kittens. There are many more out there. Please do not be part of the problem.

9. Why do I prefer a household with another kitten of roughly the same age for my singleton fosters?

- They will adapt better and faster to a new home when there is another kitten to learn and teach together
- Less stress for the kitten in a new home
- Better social skill
- You do not have to keep them company all the time. Singletons tend to be clingy, needing more attention. It can be endearing but trust me, after a while, you'll be grateful for him/her to have a cat playmate

10. Is it better to adopt 2 or more kittens together?

Yes. Absolutely and they do not necessarily need to be siblings for them to enjoy each other's company. Points are the same as above.

11. Can my adult cat play with the kitten?

It depends in the personality of your cat. Some cats are natural born nurturer, some not so much.

12. How do I introduce my present pets to this new kitten?

It is important you do the introduction of your present cats and pets to the new kitten slowly to minimize stress.

-Prepare a safe space for the kitten to explore. -You'll need a hiding item like a box on its side, a blanket, some toys, some food, a bowl of water and a litterbox at a corner before getting the kitten.
-A small room or bathroom would be ideal but a quiet corner or under the bed would do nicely too.
-Introduce an item belonging to your pet to the kitten to get used to the scent and vice versa.
-When the kitten is more confident with his own corner, let him explore the rest of the house
-Let him see your pet from afar, gauge his reaction.
-Best way is to engage them to play with you and then slowly include the other pet as well.
-It may take minutes to days depending on your pet and the new kitten.

13. What is a Care Pack?

A Care Pack is something I provide for the family to take home to be used for the kitten. It contains vaccination record from the vet (if any), food to last a few days depending on my stock, and a favourite toy or a blanket with his scent on it.

14. Why do I insist on communicating with adopters after adoption?

I care a lot about the kittens I raise. Getting photos and videos or just a short message gives me such joy. It makes fostering totally worth it. ❤
