"Thuuuper" Thursday

What a wonderful rescue day today!  I met with 2 foster Moms at the shelter and THREE little lives were saved. 

Karen is a new foster Mom and had never been to the shelter.  In fact, she had never fostered before, so I was anticipating that she might be upset at choosing a cat to save.  Karen has a passion for long haired cats, so it only took seconds for her to say "That's the one!" when we saw Greta:
Greta is about 1-2 years old and flopped over for belly rubs immediately!  She's absolutely darling and I think this is a good match. 

Our other foster Mom took the little tabby from the video that pulled at my heart strings:
She was so happy to be going home with Laurie, that her "happy kneading" almost ripped her jacket!  It was really adorable. 

I rescued a 5 month old brown tabby kitten....pictures coming. 

It's hard to believe my own eyes, but I received Foster Parent #30's application today!!  Really - THIRTY foster homes already!!  So far, I'm staying organized and things are happening (good and bad) without much drama.  We're all getting along and communicating well.  I feel so much gratitude for these men and women that have come forward to help me with this rescue.  Each day I wake up with an enthusiastic attitude. 

I think I say that every winter, don't I?  Things always seem more organized and happy in the winter.  Kitten Season isn't far away, so I'm trying to bank a few donations for the onslaught of little lives that need us.  It'll be here soon.
