View Full Version : Kudos to fosterers...

I don't know how you do it, I really don't.

I looked after my friend's kitten this weekend and was utterly bereft when he left yesterday.

I don't know how you manage to take on animals for months, years, then let them go. It must break your hearts.

So love and hugs and appreciation to all fosterers, for being brilliant.

I really do find that when my gut instinct says it's the right home, it's so easy to let them go and you just know it's the right thing for them. It's all nice and light and smiley and you're just so happy for them.

When your gut instinct says it's not the right home, but they have to go anyway, it can be enough to break you. It's the hardest thing in the world.

Most of the time I wave them off happily and feel like I have done my bit helping them to find their way to a new happy home. There's normally someone else taking their place immediately so I am not left wih a void. Rosie and Sky will be different because they have been here six months.:(

I try to look at it positively in that they are going to a fantastic new home where they will be loved, doesnt mean to say there are always some who really touch you and you do miss them but in a good way.

It is so hard I failed at it and ended up keeping fudge well done to all those that do it
