Favorite Charity: Shelter Friends


I'm new to the Shelter Friends family. I have always loved animals especially cats, so when I heard about the need for a foster mother for 2 kittens I jumped in. I didn't know anything about Licorice and Marbelous Marble before I got them. I suspect their mother was feral. Their only modes were terrified and hungry. I've had them for 2 weeks now. They are growing fatter and fuzzier, and they purr and play. They're a little skittish yet, but by the time they are ready for their forever homes they will be ready to love and be loved.

I was hesitant to foster a kitten because I have 6 senior cats of my own, but once the program was explained to me I jumped at the chance. Shelter Friends provides all the supplies including food and veterinary care. All I have to do is give the kittens a safe, loving, temporary home. Once they are old enough to be spayed and neutered Shelter Friends will find them a new permanent home.

I am a little worried that I will fall in forever love and not be able to give them up, but if I don't, I won't be able to take in more kittens in need. This is a win-win situation. Stray and unwanted animals find forever homes, and I get an endless supply of kittens. Who doesn’t love kittens?
