Hi, Internet! I'm fostering*!
So I've managed to convince myself (and my boyfriend) to foster a poor soul from Liberty Humane Society where I am a volunteer. I was eager to lend them a hand during a busy overcrowded season and had brought home an adorable face that I saw sleeping in a hammock. (My boyfriend had to approve but they are all so adorable!)
A disclaimer I must bring up is that I already have been adopted by another sweetheart and she is quite a character. (I will be bringing her quirky lovable sides from time to time) This presented a slew of challenges although I was prepared to face those from the get go.
Many people agree to foster a cat to "just try it out," but unless they are prepared to share a place with another family member (albeit possibly a temporary one) the experience turns out to be a disaster and can be very off-putting. Whether fostering, adopting or simply cat-sitting, one must be prepared to share space and learn to earn acceptance from the feline.
*For those interested in adopting this adorable creature or want to support her please contact me or comment.
