Foster Update

Foster puppy was adorable, but I decided I couldn’t keep up. I’m dealing with a pinched nerve, and not sleeping well. Maybe it’s me and I’m just not cut out to foster. It’s hard to say since I haven’t been feeling well.

I took her to an adoption event last Thursday night. She was great! She greeted all the strange people and other dogs with enthusiasm. She ate all the treats everyone offered her and even posed for pictures.

Keeping her through her adoption was really my goal, but I found my patience was thin. I enjoyed all the daily walks for the most part, but the early morning and late night walks got old when I wasn’t feeling well. I reached out to our foster network and thankfully another family was willing to take her on. I delivered her to them last Saturday, and I feel like it was the right decision for me. I hope she gets adopted soon!

I am definitely not giving up on volunteering. I have another shift scheduled to help out at the rescue next week, but I think fostering is a bit too much of a full time job for me right now. My plan will be to try fostering again when I’m feeling better, but maybe a short term foster to see how it goes.

Our son was home with his two cats last weekend. I love how bonded these two cats are! We joke that the new kitten was a birthday present for his cat Martin, but it really seems like Martin appreciates the gift! It has worked out beautifully! The cats entertain each other and my son doesn’t get woken up in the middle of the night.

They sleep snuggled like this all the time. Martin grooms her and takes great care of her! I’m so glad it has worked out well for my son, and also very thankful that our two cats are fine with the new addition and all four cats get along great when they come to visit.

Happy Summer everyone! Stay cool and enjoy your pets!
