Two Photos of My Foster Cat

Ssshhhh..don’t tell anyone but here are two photos of my foster cat. He is super cute. In the first one we are watching Strictly Come Dancing (a very popular Saturday evening programme in the UK and franchised around the world) and in the second he is watching the outside, where the action is….

He is a young, beautiful spotted tabby boy cat. He is very quiet. He sticks to me like glue. He calls after me if I leave him. So cute.

      That was quick! Now you have a week to enjoy his company, it will be hard to say goodbye but as you say, your job is done. There will be many more cats needing a loving foster home with you now you’ve proved yourself!

    2. To me, fostering is about the same as rescuing.
      We care for them, love them, and have to let them go.
      It’s never easy for me. I cry gallons every time I have seen one carried away. I have to beat down that stupid ego that keeps telling me that I am the only one suited.
      It’s very hard.

  1. He’s gorgeous, big and rangy with a lovely coat and more importantly a lovely personality. You will have to do what’s best for you, obviously the more time you’re together the harder it will be to part but if you do part you will know he is going to a carefully chosen and vetted home so will have a good life. If by chance you can’t bear to part with him, well he’s young and healthy and there are such things as boarding catteries…… so in fact, if it is what you decide you want you CAN have your cake and eat it too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thanks Babz for your wise advice. As usual I am torn. He has a beautiful character. When he is fully grown and middle-aged he’ll be a very reliable, super-friendly, undemanding companion. As good as you can get.

      I sort of fancy a two month travelling trip of some sort to break out of the rut and that is too long for a boarding cattery. I could run the site while I travelled.

    What a handsome boy and he looks so happy and content with you, sitting on your lap already, he surely knows a true cat lover when he meets one ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Fate will decide whether he stays permanently or you go travelling, it would be nice to hear your stories and see photos from our various PoC family all over the world, I think your feet are a bit itchy Michael! He is young enough to resettle so if you do go away the time will be right when they find him a permanent home.
    Good luck whatever you do.

    1. My feet are a bit itchy for a bit of change and travelling to see our PoC friends and their cats would be nice. Although being in a rut isn’t all that bad ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I could also visit organisations like a cat rescue shelter in the USA and even visit a veterinary clinic who declaws and get into a terrible argument about declawing before they boot me out. I’d film it all ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I’d also like to see the community cats of India and the feral cats of Pakistan and so on…..

      I have been to these countries before. I was in India and Pakistan in the early 70s so a long time ago.

      I am not sure about travelling because I am bit tired these days – I’ll be 66 next month.

        I know the feeling Michael lol I’m just a bit older than you but I get a shock when people treat me like an old lady and I realise I am!

    HA!

    …and you think you are in possession of a cat!

    Methinks a cat might be in possession of you>, dear Michael!

    Just do what comes “Natur’lly”: (I hope you enjoy this lil’ bit ‘o Americana) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1R1-oRO6RY

    Just get that handsome devil his shots, papers, and a nice carrier, and travel with him!

    1. There’s an idea. I have never travelled with a cat and it is certainly very possible nowadays. Thanks for the idea. As for “possession”….yes, it is as you describe. It always has been for me.

  4. Oh He’s Gorgeous and a tabby Cat Great Choice…..he’s Lovely….
    So lovely he’s a Quiet Cat. Quiet Cats are lovely. He Blends in lovely with your Decor. So Happy you got someone even if for a wee while to have in the House.

  5. What a beautiful cat and he looks so perfectly content to be with you.

    Michael, how long before “foster” becomes “adopted” ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think he was sent to your care for a reason.

    1. I agree Michele we will have to see what Mr foster cat thinks of Michaels plans to travel he may have other ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ He is beautiful and so sweet that he calls you Michael you are his human

          1. How do cats make us become so emotionally attached so fast? Big question. It is about us and our fears and loneliness etc.. Another big question is, “do cats become as attached to us as we are to them?”

            I don’t believe they do to be honest.

        1. I think about adopting him but if I do that is the end of fostering on my first attempt and I was hoping to have a bit of time to travel. I was half thinking about travelling to the US and/or Pakistan and India to meet the PoCers and photograph cats.
