Possible home for the fosters

Just got an email from a woman who wants to adopt them but she has a roommate (who is a green light for wanting a cat also), for some reason this makes me wary. What if the two split ways what becomes of the kittens? I don't think either of the boys would want to be seperated should they split ways. Am I just being over protective of the boys?

-sigh- I hate this part.

I would ask them those questions. I know in my son's case he is the owner of the cat, even tho the roommate had to agree to let her come live with them. When they part ways she will go with my son.

I'm hoping to get a good feel about it all when they meet the kittens and from the questions I've asked them. But you can't help but pick every little thing apart when finding homes for an animal.

I'm not insulting them or anything its just wanting the best for the fosters despite me not wanting to let them go.

I think it would be best for them. I can see it very clearly that these guys are the type to mourn for each other dreadfully. The stink they kick up is horrid and when they finally stop the screeching they just polop down, don't move, eat, drink nothing just lay there looking depressed. I've seen dogs and horses get very attached to another and when that one passes on or is rehomed they have starved themselves to death, despite the help of vets and their owners, some just can't function without their partner in crime and I can really see it in these two.

I'm not fond of these people anyways, the last time we spoke it was she didn't see anything wrong with letting them out onto her balcony or out in their fenced in yard. Told her they could easily fall from the balcony and get killed are scale that fence if not now then when they are older. Not to mention the fence may have holes they can squeeze through. We don't let our cats get adopted to anyone who will be taking them outside and leave them there unattended. Its one thing if you have them on a leash or an enclosure where they will go out for short periods but leave them how there unattended in a big city? No go.

So the wait continues for a home.

I know I shouldn't but I'd hate to learn that they were split up. The roomie she is with used to have a cat when she lived with another person and when they split ways the cat was given up to another person. I'd hate for them to get split up adn then passed from home to home. Can't help but be a little worried about such things for the little buggers.

However there is another women interested in them now and she doesn't live that far from me, in the same general area really so going to see how this goes.

Hoping for a good outcome.

Oooohh, if they get a home close to you maybe you would be able to see them from time to time.

Thanks Gunter.

Thats what I'm hoping Leazie, it's be great if that happened. The people who adopted Penny keep in regular contact with me through email, sending pictures of her and their other two cats. I hope if this womans adopts Kobi and Kito she'll do the same. It's wonderful to see them in their new homes and hear about them.
