Or as my current temporary charge put it when she walked across the keyboard, just as I was typing the title, fosteringghyyyyy=. I've been a feline foster mum for two years, and I've loved every minute. People ask me how I can bear to say goodbye, but I love the work because it's so rewarding. Here's why.

Cats are usually in foster homes for one of three reasons: they need regular medication, socialising, or cannot live in a shelter with other cats. Because I work from home, I usually take cats that are on medication, as I can easily dose them when necessary. Another fosterer I know specialises in caring for pregnant mums and their litters.
