Some Exciting News

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I was going to wait till tomorrow to announce this. But I'm excited and can't wait.

Tomorrow I'm going to pick up a new kitty. I will be fostering for a couple months (at least). Hopefully it won't be too long before the kitty I pick up gets a new home. I am not sure which one I'll be getting. But I asked for an older cat that's good with dogs, cats, and children.

I know tomorrows a holiday but the lady will be there cleaning so I'm suppose to call her then. I'm taking Kota with me to make sure they get along. I think Puff will be ok. I know he had issues when he was at the shelter but that was in a small cage. He should be ok in the house as long as I introduce them correctly.

So be prepared for pics!

This will be my first time fostering. I'm sure I can handle it. Question is can the rest of the family. Expecially my daughter. But I will talk to her about it before I go pick the cat up to make sure she understands we are keeping the kitty temporarily.

lol. NO NO NO I won't adopt any more. The house is small. And hubby has dibs on a dog before I adopt another cat.

How old is your daughter? Would she understand that someone out there is looking for a kitty the way you guys were looking for Puff & if you kept the foster kitty there would be a sad/lonely girl/boy out there still looking for a kitty?

Yes she's 5. She knows there are homeless animals in the world and that they will die if no one adopts them. I don't hide the truth from her. Though I sometimes sugar coat it a bit. No need for her to see the horror of it. But she knows that we saved Puffs life when we adopted him. So she will understand that we are trying to help another. Though she'll likely insist we be that family to save him/her.

That's so cool. Maybe you can make an arrangement that you can get updates on the kitty. That way your daughter also sees how what you are doing is ongoing!!!

My house isn't clean enough or calm enough to foster. So we just adopt a lot of animals, LOL.

Although someday I would like to foster a pregnant mother. That would be awesome.

I'm a Stay at home mom now so I'm here all day to keep the house clean and play with the animals while everyone is away. It gets pretty boring while hubbys at work and Sierra's in school!

I just called the Lady. She's going into the center now. I just woke up so I'm going to get ready. I think I'll walk Kota so she's not so hyper before I go. So another hour or two.
