Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Meet Berlioz (aka Bear)! 

Figaro (aka Figgy) and Berlioz (aka Bear) are best friends and they would enjoy being adopted together.  However, they would also do well if they were adopted separately into a home with another easy going kitty.  Their foster family has said that they would be great if adopted as a couple or with another kitty if there is not already a friendly, mellow kitty in the household. Each could be fine as a singleton as long as they have human companionship during the day. Otherwise, they would be too lonely without another friend to play and cuddle up with when you are not home. In a foster home, Bear and Figgy, the foster's cat, and rabbit loved scampering after and entertaining each other!

Bear (aka Berlioz) is a HANDSOME, sweet, docile, young male. Social and easy going, he is the perfect combination!  He is a non-vocal kitty who loves to cuddle and snooze with a human or Figgy, a super sweet teen who is Bear's BFF and who has given him the confidence he was lacking when he was first rescued in Baja. Although he is not a huge cuddler (unless it’s with Figgy), as soon as he sees you walk up, he starts purring and rolls onto his back for belly rubs!

Initially, Bear may need to get used to your presence/you reaching out to pet him, but if you get down on his level, though, and let him come to you, he is a purr monster and does not want you to stop petting him! He enjoys being rubbed and LOVES having his head brushed...that is the pathway to his heart! He will occasionally play with the other cats in the home by playing chase, wrestling around, or playing with toys...(he especially loves the feather toys), and enjoys watching out the windows, but really loves when people call him over to say hi while working at the desk.

Bear is very food motivated; once he hears the bag, he comes running, so his food intake will need to monitored. Because of his time with us and being with different fosters, he has gained weight and is currently 14.5lbs, so we are seeking an adopter who can supervise his diet as he needs to lose 2 pounds. Bear is currently in a foster home with multiple cats and dogs which makes it hard to monitor his meals.

If you are interesed in adopting this handsome boy, please submit an adoption application for Bear online atarwob.org

Nothing will make him happier than to find the forever home of his dreams!
