The girls and I have been volunteering at a no kill cat rescue on Saturdays. There are often kittens that need a foster home and the girls have been pestering me about fostering. I keep telling them to go and ask and they finally did. Result, we are now fostering 3 little kittens. They are a manx mix, 1 has a tail and 2 don't. Very sweet, purr the second you pick them up. The kids are having a great time. They even don't protest when I make them clean the litter box! :-)

That's so nice of you and your girls to volunteer. You're teaching them how to be helpful and considerate of animals' rights and needs. The world will be a better place because of you and your girls' efforts. Do you have any pets of your own? If so, how do they deal with the fostering?

3 adult male cats, not aggressive. So far they are dealing with it pretty well. We don't leave the kittens unsupervised around them though!

How sweet of you to foster little kittens! I have watched Animal Cops before and have seen on there about people fostering animals. I would get attached though and wouldn't want to take them back to be adopted!

I think it takes a wonderful person to volenteer at a place like that! Good for you! I love animals, especially kittens and cats. My one cat just had kittens of her own,4 to be exact and I watched their birth. Some say YUCK!! But, I thought it to be very amazing. Now, the hard part, the kittens are soon going to be old enough to be separated from their mother.My husband and I cant handle all of these kittens, it is to much for me with my children,and housework and all.So, we will have to find them good homes.I already grew attached to them!

My son is already having a hard time with the idea that we can't keep the kittens. Sad but part of growing up...
