I understand that CATsNAP reserves the right to deny my application for any reason.
I further authorize the investigation of all statements in this application. I understand CATsNAP does its best to screen an animal's temperament, but cannot warrant the health or behavior of any foster animal(s).
I agree that (a) I will allow home visits from CATsNAP Representatives, and allow representatives to take the cat to adoption days if distance is not a factor and (b) this animal is non-transferable, and will stay in the above home until CATsNAP places the animal up at PETsMART or finds a permanent home for him/her.
I further understand that only CATsNAP and its representatives will make a decision regarding permanent placement of this cat and that CATsNAP has the right to reclaim this cat at any time.
I agree to notify CATsNAP immediately of any kind of problem concerning this cat that arises.

I therefore take full responsibility for any damage this animal does to my living area, pets, belongings, or myself with the understanding that these things occurred because I did not properly protect my living space, pets, belongings, or myself from this animal.
I have agreed to the above and understand that if this foster situation does not work out for any reason, the cat will be returned to CATsNAP Representatives.
