This little girl stole my heart!
We usually foster kittens once or twice a season for the San Diego Humane Society. For anyone thinking about doing this, I can tell you from much experience that it is not always easy, but it is incredibly rewarding!
I don’t have experience working with other animal shelters, but I can’t imagine how the fostering experiences could possible have been more positive. The SDHS literally provides everything you could need. You provide simply a home, transportation and love. They provide training, food, veterinary care, toys, linens, litter, a pen for sleeping, litter pans, etc.
This sweet little girl was just 3/4 of a pound when we first took her home to foster.
She was playful and active (the SDHS always puts two or more kittens out to a foster home together so that they have playmates) but she also very much enjoyed cuddling. We would take short naps together after bouts of play.
She was my foster friend.
