What you need to know before you start Fostering cats or dogs and what you need

I wish I could find more information for myself when I first started fostering cats and dogs. I actually made an in depth video explaining everything. Check out my video on my Youtube channel below. It's about 13 minutes long but worth it if you are seriously considering fostering animals. Placement is EVERYTHING when it comes to animals. Plan ahead and everything will go smoothly for you and your foster cat /dog.

Also, if you are fostering a bigger dog then I do recommend having a large crate instead of a pen like this especially if they have a background of chewing or being rambunctious. This playpen only works if the animal is relatively calm or smaller.

I also want to take the time to thank Litter Genie for providing a Litter Genie pail system for my foster animals. It has been quite helpful. If you don't know what the Litter Genie is I shortly explain it in my video above. Feel free to view the photos below to see how I put it together.

A helpful tip is to pull the bag down a bunch so you don't have to cut it often. Believe me, I have about 3 days worth of waste from 1 adult cat and 5 kittens with no poo/pee smell whatsoever and I still haven't cut it off. I'll probably cut it off tomorrow and roll it down again.

It doesn't take up much space at all and I just have it standing up by the litter box. The kitties don't even touch it. I really like the black and grey neutral design it has on it now. I had the old one before and this one is definitely better looking for my preferences. (I remember the old one used to be plain white)

Thanks Litter Genie!
