I went to our local humane society (they euthanize) to pick up a new foster. I went in saying I could only foster one. The employee repeatedly begged me to take more. I said I couldn't. She showed me two beautiful, young, healthy, friendly cats who would be die in less than 2 hours if they were not rescued. The young, colorful calico and the young, gray boy were both owner give ups. She begged me to take them anywhere- even another shelter that at least would buy them more time. I reluctantly agreed. I could bring them to another shelter- at least give them a second chance. I called my rescue's intake coordinator who was angry I was pressured. She didn't think this should be our problem or that worker should have made it my problem. She wanted me to return the cats. I did. Their fate had already been determined. I am sorry kitties, I tried but I could not save you.
