I have to say, having foster kitties in the house is fun, rewarding, difficult and slightly heartbreaking all at the same time. I guess its kind of like being a foster parent to children on about 1/1903089745 of the scale.
Every week or so we get an email from our contact at Tails High, who lets us know about the current kitties they have and who she thinks might be a good fit for our house. The way Tails High works, is that they rely completely on foster homes. All the cats that come in and out of Tails High are loved by one family or even several (they get moved around every couple of weeks to keep them socialized and happy with different situations). We do have some kitties that are kept at a local Petco where we have weekly adoption events, but for the most part every single cat is having an extended sleep over at someones home until they find their forever family.
When we first started fostering with Tails High, we were doing it for two reasons. One – to see if the littleb was able to live with kitties full time (he has slight allergies) without causing him too much discomfort. And two – to be able to volunteer with an organization of some sort that still fit in with our crazy homelife and work schedule. Tails High fit both of those needs. And then….two and a half cats in, we found Lady Georgia.
Wee-b and I talked about it a lot and we decided that even though we wanted to keep Lady G, we still wanted to be able to foster cats. And so we did….and its been a blast so far! At the moment we have two of the MOST ADORABLE kittens ever.
Err…oops…i mean Holly and Kendra
Right. Thats the picture.
