Today I cry.....

.....and cry and cry. Today I take my 3 oldest boys, Frankie, Benny and Brody to the shelter so they can find their forever homes. I nursed Frankie back from starvation. He was skin and bones and fought me tooth and nail when I tried syringe feeding him. He was dying and just wanted to be left alone but not on my watch, I told him. Benny and Brody were ferals but a kind caretaker at the shelter convinced the mgr that they were redeemable and I was asked to take them. They were SO scared - not aggressive but press into the corner kind of scared. It took awhile but these boys PURRRR up a storm when they see me now and are so very sweet with the youngsters in the cat room.

I always cry when I take my babies in for adoption but these fellows are so special to me - it's a deeper cry. I pray they find the very best of homes!

Frankie, Benny and Brody

Tomorrow Johnny goes to his forever home. Johnny was the kitten I took in with the broken elbow. He has a wonderful cat daddy now. It will be quite an adjustment to go from 16 babies to 12!

Sending you hugs. You have given all 4 an amazing start ( along with all the others you have had) but like you said these were special because it was even more a personal connection. We have fingers and paws crossed the three find wondeful homes and also so glad that Johnny has hit the jackpot with a fab fosert mom and now a fab forever papa.

I can't imagine how hard it is, fostering kitties and then having to find them forever homes. But what a wonderful thing you do for them, when you think of the alternative, them living on the streets, or or being killed by other animals. Still, I know how hard it must be. You are a wonderful person.

So cute! I'm sorry you have to say good bye to the kittens. You're a wonderful person. I could never do what you do. I'd have a houseful of cats!

My heart goes out to you! You have done so much for all those babies! At least you can take comfort in the knowledge that they are happy, healthy, stable kitties. Not easy to give them back especially these four, but you did so well with them, be proud of yourself. Sending you hugs.
