I know how hard this is for you. I had one foster that was with me for 3 years and I honestly thought he would be with me for life. But this wonderful woman adopted him and he's now in his forever home. I did a home check (for my own sanity, it's not required by the shelter I fostered for) and brought Ike with me. She knew his history and that he would hide from her for months, but she was willing to adopt him.
I tried to make it out of her apartment before I
but I didn't make it. I started crying when I said my goodbyes to him and the look he gave me just broke my heart. I felt like he thought I was abandoning him and that tore me apart.
I know he's now happy with his new fur brother that she adopted after him. She originally adopted Ike for her 18 year old girl as a companion but knew she wanted another cat so Ike wouldn't be alone when her old gal passed on. The 2 boys are now the best of friends and happy together. She sends me updates from time to time so I feel I'm still connected to him.
As difficult as it is for you, you know they will be going to new loving homes. That's what fostering is all about. It opens your home to more furkids that will need your help and love.
Thank you for helping the furkids!
