You have how many cats? Yes fifteen, but let me explain....we’ll get the easy ones out of the way first ... three are recent kitten fosters that have made it to 7 months old without getting adopted “yet”! They were a bit too shy for potential adopters so a volunteer has been working with us and they are doing much better and have high hopes of a furever family soon! Two are officially mine - a very large beautiful black cat I call Bear and an orange tabby named Pepper that I officially adopted, both considered “foster fails”! Three actually are fosters for another rescue called The Furever Family Rescue and I don’t know why they weren’t grabbed when they were smaller but as a lot of us know as they grow they are harder to adopt out - and one has become pretty shy. So that’s eight, ok so five were kinda abandoned by the rescues I was fostering for at the time and they also were getting too big to be adopted- some were sick or quarantined for the “cute” period that’s easier for them to be chosen. The last two were recent rescues- both from former neighbors, one older and one younger - the younger one was very sick and almost died. Four of the crew are black cats and as most of us cat people know they are harder to get adopted. Some have behavior issues we are working on and we are using Jackson Galaxy and his knowledge to see if we can get them to happy adoptable kitties.
I am a neonatal orphaned kitten fosterer normally and will continue to do that while I work my mission. I have been fostering mostly orphan kittens for almost 12 years from even a day old - I love doing it and hopefully can integrate them when old enough and healthy enough into the mix of my Adopt a Grown Cat nonprofit cat cafe!
