And lucky for you I presently have 3 fosters up for adoption and a whole lot of kittens waiting to enter the "system".<br><br><br><br>
If you live in or relatively near Southern Ontario have a look at my lovelies and maybe adopt one or two or three...<br><br><br><br><a href="http://c.a.t.s.tripod.com" target="_blank">http://c.a.t.s.tripod.com</a><br><br><br><br>
just click on the "Available for Adoption" page to see pics of your new furry friends.

woohoo. Kudo's for fostering. I've been wanting to get another foster cat but I don't know if I have time to attend cat adoption events AND dog adoption events (they're held on different days at our shelter). I'd like to get a playmate for my cat.

i'm EXTREMELY impressed that you foster dogs, kpickell. cats are relatively easy compared to dogs! i would love to add a dog to our family but we're at full capacity now. i think that it would add to the socialization aspect of fostering if the cats can learn to get along with a dog as well a young child and other cats.<br><br><br><br>
do you have any fosters that you still think about (more than once a day)?

Wah!! I would love to adopt more cats in fact if I had my way, I would have about five or six of them. But my cat Nibbles has some issues with other cats and she likes to be the center of attention at all times. She even gets jealous of the tv and tries to sit on the remote when I am watching in order to prevent me from flipping channels. Unfortunately it wouldn't be pretty if I brought in another cat. However I do dontate money and toys to the humane society. Kudos to all you that foster the cats - we need more people like you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I wish I could adopt one of your fosters (aside from the fact that I live too far, I have a "full house")......I wish you luck in finding them good homes. That's really nice that you do that...it's so much better for them waiting for a home with someone like you rather than a depressing shelter. I used to foster, and most of the fosters ending up staying permanently....that's part of the reason why I have a "full house" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">.

one of my first fosters stayed. she had ringworm which takes a VERY LONG TIME to become cured of. we kept her for that reason - and she's dang cute. but we really can't keep anymore and it's HARD because some have stayed for months and there hasn't been one that i haven't bonded with - no matter how hard i try to keep things business-like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">.

eew ringworm... we've had several ringworm outbreaks at our shelter and it's definetely not fun!<br><br><br><br>
What's hardest about fostering is when you get one as a kitten or puppy and they don't get adopted right away so you're there with it as it grows up. My first foster was hard because I had him from 6 weeks of age till he was over 5 months old. You name him, housebreak him, teach him commands, watch him grow big, and have to give him up. So to answer your earlier question, yes, I still think about that little guy almost every day.
