Great article, I have been fostering for over a year now. It is a lot of work as mine are kittens but it is very rewarding when you find the perfect match for the kitten and the pet parent.

We have fostered many kittens over the years. Many nights up bottle feeding their little fuzzy selves while their tiny little ear go up and down as they drink their KMR. Such a good feeling when they finally get a home where they will be loved and cared for. There is always a need for those willing to do this and the rewards are many.

God Bless all the Foster parents out there. I would be a Foster failure. I love all animals and couldn't give them up. I'll just continue to help the strays and ferals.

The last part of this article was my downfall. Last August I fostered a 2 week old kitten. After round the clock feedings, teaching him how to use the litter box, socializing him....did I really think I was going to give him up? No way.
