Quiet, loving foster homes are needed for our senior cats until they can be adopted. While many senior cats are still playful, others want nothing more than a warm lap and human companionship.
Studies show that cat companions can help:
Laps and Naps will provide food, litter and other necessary supplies for the foster cats unless the foster provider wishes to cover supplies as a donation to Laps and Naps.. We also cover all approved veterinary care and medication.
Foster families must agree to allow potential in-home veterinary and comfort care visits.. Because we wish to minimize stressful events for our seniors, foster families must also agree to allow approved potential adopters to visit the cat(s) in your home at pre-arranged times.
If you would like to open your home to one of our senior kittizens, please contact us for more information.
The cats residing in Sanctuary Homes are still under the guardianship of Laps and Naps, but are no longer on the adoption list and will stay in the same home as long as the caregiver and cat are happy with one another. Laps and Naps covers veterinary expenses, food and litter unless the caregiver has the financial means and wishes to cover expenses as a donation to Laps and Naps.
If you are interested in learning more about our Senior Laps for Senior Cats program or what is involved in providing a Sanctuary Home, give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in need of more volunteers to help with events so we can spread the word about Laps and Naps. We are also in need of someone experienced in launching and running capital campaigns.
If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, give us a call or email email@example.com.
Ducky is a 12-year-old male who was grieving the loss of his human mom. He needed a cat savvy person who understands he needs time to allow his heart to heal.
Fortunately, Ducky found just the right person. She is home most of the time, just like his first "mom", and she has plenty of love and patience for this sweet boy.
Grumpy is a 17-year-old male who is providing plenty of love and companionship to a senior who needed him as much as he needed her. They have a comfortable routine together and she has someone to greet her when she returns home from an excursion.
Talkative, friendly, 16-year-old Wally is living in a sanctuary home with a lovely lady who was looking for the companionship of a senior cat but who was concerned about the cost of caring for a senior.
Now, Wally and his new human are enjoying one another's company while Laps and Naps will make sure he receives quality food and medical care.
