Come next month, Flossy will have been with us 1 year exactly.  This realization is very, very troubling to me as I think about how hard it is now going to be to move her if/when someone does wish to adopt her.  A year is a long time for a cat to become settled in a home and she doesn't realize her stay with us is temporary, to her it's home - her sanctuary. 

In all the cats/kittens we've been involved in saving, Flossy is now the one we've had the longest and from a personal standpoint I'm not happy about that either.  Noone can predict when her forever home will come and there's apart of me that worries now that it never will and am I really prepared to foster her indefinitely?  The honest answer is that I'm not, but what's the alternative...........have her move to another foster home so I can take on another cat that may be more adoptively attractive?

I didn't sign on for the one and I can't fathom the other - I can't see my way clear on this one at present, here's hoping that this too will work out.


  1. LM, Everything in time ... she will get her forever home ... she could not have made it this far without you.

  2. LM, I haven't logged onto your blog for a while and had no idea that your sister was so ill. Words can't express the shock & sadness I feel for you and your family. You are such a lovely, warm & compassionate person and bad things shouldn't happen to someone like you.

    I also can't believe that Flossy, Abner & Hobbs are still enjoying your home! Finn & Petunia are doing really well and I love them so much. They are the smartest and most affectionate babies I've had in a very long time and I'm grateful to be their mom. Without them, I don't know how I could have managed through a very difficult time in my life. Abner & Hobbs look a lot like Finn - all legs with a sleek body. Toonie (as I call her) is a real cutie with her fluffy fur - I think the vet is in love with her. They also discovered the bathroom tissue roll (twice).

    I am also happy to see that Flossy has befriended the boys; what a change in her cattitude! Who would have guessed? I feel guilty for not bringing her home with Finn but she is a lovely, sweet girl and hopefully someone will recognize that soon.
