I am so glad to hear this, and do want to tell you how much I respect you for doing this.
Money is a problem for many of us, I am on a fixed income myself these days (I haven't always been), and have had to get creative at times to make sure I could take care of my guys.
It takes some time and work sometimes, but I've always felt it was worth it because I believed it was the right thing to do.
That's why I get frustrated when people dont' do what's needed and use money as an excuse. Help is out there if one makes to effort to find it and ask.
So thank you for doing that. Again, my respect goes out to you.
Will that same group help you find homes for the kittens also? If not, I'm sure some of the other rescue groups will be willing. I know with the one I foster for, they never have a problem finding homes for the little babies immediately.
Good luck and keep us informed!
PS: I had a foster back in december who was given to me along with her 5 week old kittens, who were all taken from my home to their new forever home on New Year's Day. The Mom stayed with me until she was spayed, then was taken to the Petsmart to be shown for adoption. she had two people interested in her, and was adopted within a few weeks (she was a sweetie and I knew she would. The reason I'm saying all this is because she also went into heat while she still had her kittens. It was funny too, because she used to "hit" on Rocky Rockette all the time (when I still thought Rocky was a he, lol, another reason I thought he was a he!). She was only a few months old herself at the time and used to just look at Fiona as if to say, "Wha?" LOL
