Found home for one of my fosters

This must have been the 50th foster or more I have done, and she was probably the one I liked most out of allow them. But knew that I could not keep a 3rd cat due to staying in an apartment, college, and so on. I exchanged at least 20 emails with this person who wanted to adopt her and did a background check too. One thing I do is make dang sure they go to a good home. I had Crystal for one year as a foster. She was in so bad of shape when she came in with over 15 ticks in her ears (can you believe that?) and upper respiratory infection. She was also pregnant. I saved her and the baby from being pts.

I know I found her a great home today, but it is hard. The courage to break my own heart in order to help others sure hurts, but it is worth it. The adopter drove 3 hours away to see her, because they fell in love over her picture.

Here is Crystal who found her home today finally.

Thank you for working so hard to foster and then to re home needy cats. It takes a special kind of person to do this work. Crystal is beautiful.

Oh hey Zach. Good job finding good homes. Fostering can be the most bittersweet journey, but ultimately rewarding just like you described. I hope college is going well for you.

Zach, While hard to let go what great news that you have found her a wonderful new home. And now that helps possibly 2 cats, Crystal to the new home and possibly an opportunity for you to do another foster.
Very cool, you take so much time and effort to do what you do.
