I foster kittens because it saves their lives. Underage kittens need somewhere to go until they are eight weeks old and I am happy to be able to care for them. Watching kittens thrive while in foster care is a joy. They change so much, both physically and developmentally, and it is fascinating to watch them grow.
Fostering is generally very easy and everything you need is supplied. Kittens really only need a small space and a bit of love and care. Fostering gives me a sense of purpose and there is nothing better than coming home from work and getting to play with kittens for an hour or two.
When my foster kittens are adopted, I get very emotional, but it’s a sense of pride for everything they’ve accomplished rather than a feeling of sadness. While I love every kitten I foster — and basically every kitten I’ve ever met — I don’t get too attached to them and will never keep one of my fosters because I know there will always be more kittens who need me and I want to be there to save them.
Fostering is a huge privilege and it’s extremely rewarding. It doesn’t require a huge expense or time commitment, so if you are an animal lover, I strongly encourage you to foster and help save kittens’ lives. || #COIFosterStories
