The foster group would also pay for food, litter and vet care. My SIL has about 5 cats for her own. I'm not sure how many other cats come around for food.
I get cat assistance all the time. We always need it when we open cabinets and closets. Changing sheets on the bed is the biggest chore. I'm always kicking cats off and then they just jump back on. Bubbles was upset the other day that she didn't get to assist the termite guy doing the annual inspection. I locked her in the bathroom to keep her from tripping the poor guy. She would've followed him around helping.
