One Cute Foster Kitten... You Can Have One Too!


Hey everyone,
this is Husky :)

I just picked her up from Toronto Humane Society a few days ago. I'm really lucky to have her individually without the whole litter 'cuz I'm afraid too many lil kittens would bother Tasha.

Well, to be honest, Tasha has been rather insecure with the presence of Husky. I hope she'll get used to it soon.

Sometimes it's sad to think of these cats and kittens. In a way, they are orphans, waiting for reaching hands to give them a home and shower them with love. In our perception, we sometimes think dogs are better than cats. I'd say that is because we don't know cats that well. Perhaps this doesn't apply to everyone. But it surely does apply to me. I've never owned a pet cat before in my life. I've only owned rabbits, turtles, birds, guinea pigs, squirells, fish, and of course dogs. Back home, cats are normally not kept as pets. They live outside on their own, reproducing until overpopulating our country. At times, they can be a bit of a trouble. STealing foods from people's houses, making noises at night, and even carry bacteria around since they are not well-kept [read: dirty].

In Canada, it's all different. I've only realised it after I became their foster volunteer. Taking these cats and kittens into my place have been one of my greatest experience during the summer. They need a place to stay for a while before they can be adopted. And I'm happy to care for them and provide them with the love they deserved.

If you like animals, why not spare a moment of your time and become a foster parent? Everything is covered and you'll be guaranteed that satisfaction of accomplishing a task as a foster parent. You can even chek out the list of foster animals here.

Please welcome....



Hey everyone, my name is Tasha :)
I'm 7 years old and have trouble walking due to my weak hind legs. However, my new foster parent, Ceendy, is kind enough to take me home to see if I'm well enough for adoption.

I love my newly found haven here with my foster. I got plenty of loving caresses, which I very much enjoy.

My favorite spots are the carpet where I can roll my back, behind the computer desk where my foster foster is working, and on the chair next to my foster which she specially provide for me :) I am one happy cat now !

However, what lies ahead in the future, I cannot foresee. I hope after a month someone will drop by at the Toronto Humane Society and adopt me into an equally comfortable home ;)

My Wish Came True

According to the cat adoption list at Toronto Humane Society website, both MiuMiu and Sneezey have successfully been adopted! I should be ashamed but I admit that I regularly check the list to see if their profiles are still up.

Tonight I discovered that both have disappeared.
Aww... people easily fell in love with these cute kittens :)

My hope that they'll be adopted into a new, long-term, loving home has come true. I am very happy for them!!!

Now, I'd be happy to welcome new foster cat(s) :)

Farewell Sneezey and MiuMiu....

Yesterday I brought my two foster kittens to the animal clinic. For general check-up, really. And for determining whether they are fit for adoption. I thought I would still have to bring them home again. Cause they are still so small. Living in a tiny cage is very much unpreferable to them. However, the vet lady told me they are okay for adoption. Thinking that this weekend is Adopt-A-Thon, they should have a better chance of being adopted.

I really hope that they will find a loving home and that both are adopted together.

I still think that they will come back home with me. Thinking about them is very unbearable. I think I've become too attached. I must not let that happen. I let them go so that they can have a better life. It's just unfair to keep them here only so that I can have a company.

I hope they will be adopted soon. I'm especially worried about Sneezey. He has such a good personality, yet his deformed left leg might be a bit discouraging. Let me tell you, there is nothing wrong with it. It's not contagious and the vet told me "cats do very well on three legs"!

If anyone is sincerely interested in adopting kittens, please go to the Toronto Humane Society website and visit them sometime. If you want the specific kittens I fostered, please e-mail me and I will provide you with the reference number at ccayadi/at/rogers/dot/com.

As a foster parent, I will have to learn to let them go and not miss them too much. Nevertheless, I still think about them.

Wish them well.
