Autumn Blessings (9/23/17)

2 months old today…and on a sunshine adventure to capture this photo! Wyatt is the sole surviving Wild West kitten! Having nearly died himself, his growth and development has been at a slower pace, but that seems to have all changed since he finally started eating from a plate! Wyatt is a rough and tumble boy and currently his only playmate is his mama Oakley, who almost always retreats out of his reach! Someday, a family of his own!

CELEBRATING FOUR YEARS OF FOSTERING FOR KITTEN ANGELS TODAY!

Four years ago today, my friend Leslie and I drove up to a PetSmart adoption event to talk to Judie of Kitten Angels about fostering. We met a beautiful pregnant cat, who had just been dropped off. I said I’ll take her, but there was already a foster set up. We were driving back home, about a half an hour away when we got the call that the other foster hadn’t shown up. Both of us still remember how fast I made a U-Turn on that mountain road and headed back to get the pregnant cat who would be forever known as Sophia L’Orange.

That started my journey, whose end is always “goodbye”. This is fostering. It is the being there to nurture and protect them, to socialize and safeguard them. And then, it is sending them off to live with wonderful families to free yourself up too to foster the next batch that desperately need you. It’s an amazing journey. Filled with love and sometimes tears, but always worth it.

I learned long ago to never be afraid to ask for help; there is so much I wouldn’t be able to do on my own, that we can all do together. I have met some of the most incredible people through fostering, forged some wonderful friendships, seen some of the worst and some of the best. And am so grateful.

There is a huge distinction between sheltering and fostering. Being able to house a large number of kittens versus having the time and resources to properly foster (socialize, tend to, treat, keep healthy) the kittens are entirely different. We foster. Fostering should never be about quantity, but rather about quality.

And within these quality moments are are some of the most tender when they are even too small to know you exist. The moments when you watch, gratefully letting mom do what she does best and making sure she’s well taken care of and loved. These are the moments she gives you with trust. And as they grown, the trust each kitten gives you. These are the quiet times in our lives when we just know care and peace. This is part of fostering. This is part of their beginning.
