Joy Of Fostering


After all the exploring kitty did with his human friend, he was pretty hungry.

“I was just babysitting for a little bit! This was at my mom’s office and her coworker fosters kittens. She was telling me how she had to get up in the middle of the night, just to feed these little guys when they were only days old (six weeks in the picture I posted),” said EdgarAlanPwnd of reddit.

Furry Family Of Five


Margo the sweet cat mama came to her foster home with her 4 tiny kittens. All of them are grey. Can you tell these little ones apart?

“We have a young mommy cat named Margo and her four, one-month old kittens. All are grey, with various levels of floofiness. The shelter said there are two ‘girls’ and two ‘boys,'” said the foster mom via instagram.

Litter of Six Rescue Kittens


An employee from a nursing home brought in a basket full of six goopy-eyed kittens to get help. The mama cat made a home near a hay bale that was later removed. “Once the hay bale was gone, the momma started hissing at the wee kittens and refusing to feed them,” said Jean, animal rescuer and fosterer.

They scooped up the kittens and got them help. “Thankfully, my foster family that homeschools three kids agreed to take these squirming furballs. All were treated with antibiotics and deemed to otherwise be in good health. They were fed every four hours around the clock until transitioned to eating on their own,” Jean added.

“Being handfed, these little ones ADORE humans. They long to be held.”

This litter of six goopy-eyed kittens are cuddling with their foster mom.

Gatsby’s foster mom wrote via Instagram:

“13 Reasons to Adopt a Black Cat: 1. You can’t tell if they’re dirty and their teeth always look white. 2. A black cat is a great accessory to any outfit. They go with everything. 3. Black is very slimming. Holding your black cat will make you look extra slender. 4. Save time on date night – you won’t need the lint brush for your little black dress. 5. Your cat doesn’t care what color YOUR hair is! 6. Black cats are the most fun to play hide and seek with. 7. They have a “black belt” in cuddling. 8. You’ll never need to go shopping for Halloween decorations. 9. In most cultures, a black cat in your house means good luck. 10. A black cat will help you celebrate your inner ‘Goth’. 11. They are always in the best dressed category. 12. They make you look beyond the surface to find true love and beauty. 13. They are the least likely to get adopted and need your love the most.”

After 5 Weeks Of Fostering, He Couldn’t Let Kitty Go…


“Fostered for 5 weeks, returned to adoption center, cried myself home, and drove back to adopt him. Meet Gin!” kitty’s dad wrote via reddit.

He found Gin when he was looking to foster kittens. “I heard about a rescue organization in vet school and checked them out on Facebook. The kitten population explodes around this time in Australia and a lot would be put down if not taken for temporary fostering… so, since I had more than enough resources to accommodate him and his 3 brothers I took them in.”

But when it was time to return the kitty to the shelter, it became very difficult for him to part with Gin. He went back and adopted him.

Meet Gin, who came to his foster home looking to be loved.

Chloe The Kitty – Foster Journey


This is Chloe and her foster journey. When she was little, little Chloe lost her mama and sister, but she found a surrogate family that loved her to bits. “She head bumps my hand for attention, and purrs when I hold her. Such a sweet little lady,” Chloe’s fosterer wrote on instagram.

Chloe did very well at her foster home. She loved following her foster mom around, like a little supurrvisor. “Chloe follows me around the house. When I stop, she stops and does an adorable pose, hoping I’ll notice her. She’s a fun little friend to have around.”

Meet Chloe. She loves her foster mom and her surrogate family.
