Tomorrow I'm bringing a new foster Mom to the shelter with me. With great trepidation she agreed to come with me. I never want anyone to feel like I'm twisting their arm, but I really do believe that anyone that fosters a cat needs to go to the shelter at least once.
When I deliver a cat to someone's home it really sanitizes things. That's OK for some people. They want to help and prefer to not see the inside of the shelter. I get that. Really!
I'm looking forward to seeing what cat our new foster Mom ends up rescuing tomorrow. I know she's scared to go. I won't let her walk out with 10 cats even though she'll want to take 10. Tomorrow - she can be a hero to one cat. I'll have to write tomorrow to let you know who the lucky one is. Whomever she chooses has to get along with her current brood. She sounds like such a nice girl and really wants to help.
Earlier today I spoke with a very nice lady who was interested in "Bosco" at the shelter. Unfortunately, she decided to adopt directly through our rescue rather than the shelter. That's ok......because the already rescued cat needs a home too. But he's safe. Bosco isn't. I really want to help this guy, and I'm not so sure he's a good fit for our new foster Mom. I'll certainly introduce him to her.
Bosco is BEYOND cute and only a year old. He doesn't know how close he came to having a forever home, nor does he know how close he's coming to dying.
I can feel his pendulum swinging and it's not good news for Bosco. I hope I can save him.
