Will putting my cat into foster care shorten his life?

  • I have a senior cat that might have to be fostered and wonder if that will short his life

  • Hi Janet,

    If your senior cat is of good health, placing him in foster care will not necessarily shorten his life - but it may cause him to be a bit stressed at first. It will also depend on how many other cats are in the chosen foster care home and what his tolerance level is towards them? Also, is there also dogs in the home? And is he used to dogs? 
    Most elderly cats prefer to live out their days in a quiet home but usually with someone close-by most of the time. But this ultimately depends on his tolerance level, personality and what he is conditioned too.
