I have wanted to foster this cat since I started fostering for the rescue back in April, as she is 13 and I like them to have a home environment. However, she was too unpredictable to be put in a carrier, and for various reasons since it hasn't been an option. The other week I was talking to the rescue and she said that Molly wasn't eating a lot, sleeping loads and barely moving out of the pens, so she didn't think she had long left. I thought about this overnight (I didn't want to go back up to 6 and the 5 I have are just sorting themselves out) and then offered to take her on so she had a home for whatever time she had left. They said no as they didn't want to move her, which I accepted. 2 days later, I was helping out at a coffee morning and went to take pics of the cats after (I do a rehoming page for them) and she climbed up on my knee and settled. The lady said that is all she wants, and I told her again I would take her, so she changed her mind!! She is such a lovely cat, but decided she didn't want to be separated (and as she has been at the rescue for so long and is fine with other cats, so I let her come out) -she found the bed, and the sofa, and is even happier and wont go back in her room!! The only prob is she barely eats, I am trying loads of food at the mo to find something she will eat. Her favs so far are Hills a/d and complimentary HiLife. At least she is being fed on her own and has someone who will try lots of things to tempt her!!
