Some of the cats that come through our doors are sadly those that have a very limited lifespan, because they have a terminal condition, or are very old.  As we don't want these cats to spend any more of the precious time they have left in our cattery we put them into 'fospice', that is hospice care with one of our foster carers. For as long as they have a quality of life - due to their age or illness - we know that being with our loving foster carers is the best place for them to spend their last days. Please help us to cover the costs of our fospice cats' medical treatment and care. It really will make a huge difference to their lives. At the moment we don't have any cats in fospice care as some were well enough to be re-homed and others sadly passed. We were lucky enough to have those cats who passed in fospice care for quite a few years where they stayed happy and comfortable recieving love, food and warmth.

This handsome boy is Cricket. Cricket spent two years in fospice care, despite only being given two months by the vets due to kidney failure. It just goes to show how amazing fospice care is and how it can make such a difference. Sadly he passed away last year but we know he will have felt love and care shown by his wonderful foster mummy.

We hope any future fospice cats have many more happy times in their foster homes and we at YCR are committed to their care until it is the right time to say goodbye.  The love and comfort our fospice foster carers give to these cats is priceless and we are happy to pay for everything that they need. It is a small part of what we do as a re-homing centre, but it means so much to these very special cats.  Your help with this appeal will help us care for them and mean we can continue to do this for other cats in the future. Thank you and big purrs from Cricket x
