Fancy Cats Rescue Team
January 9, 2010
I fostered three orphaned kittens. They were so young, I had to know how to get them to learn things their mother would have taught them. I had to bottle feed them, which is a lot harder than it sounds. One of them ended up being a special needs cat- so I needed help figuring out what was wrong with him and how to make him the best cat he could be.
And every bit of the way, I received support from volunteers. If someone didn't know the answer to a question, they would direct me to someone else who was sure to know.
If my cats needed shots, medicine, or a vet visit, they got it. My cats were posted on the Internet by another volunteer. Other volunteers helped with the formal adoption process. If I went away on a trip, the cats were able to stay somewhere else till I got back. If I wasn't capable of doing something- like give shots or microchip, another volunteer would do it for me.
Even with all the support, it was a lot of work on my part- but well worth it. Every single one of my cats are in homes where I know they'll never have to worry about where they'll be tomorrow- because they're in real forever homes. And I've met so many people while volunteering- other volunteers and people stopping by at adoption fairs.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the great feeling I have every time a cat finds a forever home. I also feel great when success stories are sent in :-).
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
all very nice and very helpful.
