Foster Friday

Kitty cat foster parents have mixed emotions during weeks like this one. On one hand you are so very happy. Happy that you did your job. That you raised your babies right. Helped them grow big and strong. Playful and loving. You've made sure they've become  good, productive citizens healthy and fun-loving cats. (I've documented these last couple months on my Foster Friday posts right here.)

Just look how much they've grown since May!

Parsley on May 18...
and here's Parsley now...
Rosemary in May...
and Rosemary now...
Such beauties. And all grown up.

As a foster kitty cat parent this is also the week you dread. You've spent the last two and a half months being their mama. The one they come to when they need something. The one they visit first thing in the morning. 

Sometimes Parsley would get to me first
and sometimes it was Rosemary.
Can you tell something is about to happen? 
This was the week they headed back to Simply Cats for adoption. They were spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and put onto the adoption floor. No matter how many dozens of kitties I've fostered, I still get sad when it's time for them to leave. They go away, out of your life forever. I can't be too sad for too long, though. I'm really excited for a family to pick them out and love them and give them their forever homes. 

Even though I will no longer will be part of their lives, I'm so glad I got to be part of starting them off right. 
Off they go!
