Fostering Stories: Mistletoe the Christmas Kitten

IntroductionI have been lucky enough to become a fosterer for the RSPCA. I have mostly cared for Kittens and Dogs and once I had some puppies. This is such a rewarding hobby as not only do these animals need a loving and supportive home which I try to give them, they help me too. I struggle with periods of low mood and been able to care for these animals is fantastic therapy and is so rewarding and brings me such joy. To see the change in adult animals from anxious and nervous when they arrive to playful and confident when they leave, and seeing baby animals grow safely and correctly and see them develop into friendly pets. To know that I have had a part in their lives and have helped them on their way to a better life is a very worthwhile accomplishment. They may forget me but I will never forget them.

Mistletoe the Christmas Kitten

A 3 week old kitten found wandering the streets missing two toes at Christmas, came to me over Christmas time which was wonderful. Again bottle fed, feeding one kitten is a lot easier then 5, and easier to put down so you can get on with your life. This was a very relaxed kitten and fitted in with the family Christmas well. Playing with wrapping paper on Christmas morning then losing him in the Christmas tree was a joy and gave my Christmas a special twist.

At 12 weeks old he found a home straight away.
