Kitten Update – Two Found Homes!

Great news!  Yesterday, the buff kitten was a adopted by a very nice woman who lives in Phoenix.  The little guy will be an only child in his new home.  Although he will miss his brothers, I think he will thrive as an only cat.  He loves attention.  His new owner promised to send me updates.  I will pass on the information when I receive it.  Until then, enjoy the last video of him taken right before his adoption.

Watching the little buff and tabby go has been difficult for me.  I am very attached to all of them.  Even though I know they are in wonderful homes with people who love them, I still worry.  I want to commend all of you foster parents out there who take in these wayward orphans during their time of need.  It is a mixed blessing to be a foster.  But I know deep down it’s a wonderful gift to the animals even if sending them off is so hard.
