Flash has just gone to his forever home. I know I should be happy, but I am feeling very sad right now. I put so much of myself into socializing the kittens, and he was the first one to come see me, to purr in my lap, and to climb up onto my shoulder.

I have no idea how people foster again and again. This is breaking my heart.

His new family seems nice. Single mother and 2 girls 10 & 12. They have named him Milo and promised to send lots of pics.

Someone else is coming in about an hour to look at Fozzy. Maybe I won't answer the door......

(((HUGS))) What you are doing is mightily BIG. I couldn't do it. It takes a very special person to foster. Hang in there!

Sending you lots of purrs and headbumps from my family.......

Hang in there! You are doing the best. It takes a strong person to foster. Just remember you are doing cat-kind and human kid a favor with your good deed of fostering.

I know just how you feel. Each time I had to say goodbye to one of my foster dogs, I felt like it was one of my own leaving. I'd have nightmares for weeks - every dog I saw that even remotely looked like him/her would make me take a second look. Very painful - it will pass and you did a wonderful thing by rescuing them After 12 dogs, I finally stopped fostering - not good at it at all.

And now Fozzy has gone to his forever home as well.

Poor Tippy Toes is the last one. The people who took flash were terrified of Tippy Toes because she is black. *shakes head*

Wow, that was fast! But I'm so glad they've found homes.

My tuxedo cats, Cookie and Checkers, want to tell Tippy Toes that black cats are the best.
