Honey, I know EXACTLY what you mean! That is one reason we do not allow the cats to sleep with us when they are in foster. I have a spare bedroom that is a foster room and they get put in that at night until the next morning - less chance to bond, plus my resident cats don't appreciate the new comers very much. I know how hard it is not to get attached, and I too mourn the loss when they are gone, but then I take in another and the joy of new loves starts again. Try to have faith that a family will come along and love Alma as much or more than you did.
