It's been a day of "Juggle the Kittens". I have to move some kittens, vet some kittens, adopt some kittens, and put some kittens into Petsmart. Just as I think I have it all figured out and I can breathe a sign of relief, a new problem or challenge comes up.
Why am I surprised? This happens EVERY year and I'm never quite prepared for it.
When I'm "Juggling the Kittens", it becomes so stressful that I'm either ready to run away from home, or just burst into tears. It isn't easy to do The Juggle. Not all kittens work well with individual foster homes. Some foster families prefer older kittens - some like bottlefeeders. Because I'm in a "Juggle the Kittens" phase, it means I can't rescue until I things, since I don't really know where all these little guys are going to end up. I need to be organized or things don't work properly
I always wonder how much of this is truly as stressful as I make it sound, or is it just stressful because my life is deeply overextended right now? I'm guessing it's a little bit of both. Although I've kept my life a bit of an "open book" in this blog, there are many things that I don't talk about that I quietly deal with each day.
We all have that stuff, right? Right?
