Foster update: New Year and New Beginnings
2019 is in full effect and I’m back from taking a little hiatus! Did you miss me? Well I missed you but needed a break to practice some self-care and unplug! Now back to business! I have good news and good news on the fostering front!
Stubby gets his happy ending!
First piece of good news involves my foster buddy Stubby. If you follow my Instagram you already know that before Christmas Stubby was adopted at the Mega Pet Holiday Adoption event at the Meadowlands in New Jersey! If you missed my blog post about that event you can check it out here.
Less than one day into the adoption event weekend, I received word that Stubby found his forever home. Stubby is now a Manhattan boy and is living in the Big Apple. He’s been welcomed into a loving home with his forever mom and has a new sibling too! He’s taken time to adjust but is doing great. Here is a picture of Stubby in his forever home.
Look at that confidence! I could not be more proud of my boy! I’m one proud foster mom!
I never got the chance to write a post about Riley since I took in Riley for a very brief nano second and had to return him to the animal clinic. Here is Riley in case you missed it.
Riley was an adorable polydactyl kitten! I mean who doesn’t love kittens! His first night home he was very quiet and shy however he didn’t mind being held and cuddled. I can tell that he’ll grow up to be a heartbreaker with his devastatingly good looks and fluffiness. I mean look at that face!
So why did I have to return Riley? Unfortunately, because of miscommunication, he was sent home with me mid-treatment for ring worm, so I had to return him to finish his regimen. I fully anticipated getting him back at home to continue my foster journey with Riley but got word he was adopted! Yes! It was another foster success story!
What I’ve learned so far…
Now there are currently no paws at home as I’m waiting for my next new foster cat, however I’m sure I won’t be waiting long as Spring will be around the corner before we know it. Kitten season is no joke!
I’m really enjoying discovering the world of fostering and how I can help be part of the process of saving lives and loving lives at the same time. Being a foster mom, not only fulfills my purpose to inspire and change animal’s lives but I think it helps me be a better human being and inspire others to consider the same. Volunteering and fostering has helped me find healing in more ways than I saw possible, and that makes me very optimistic about what the future holds.
