This is one of the best parts of fostering – watching them blossom¬†from a nervous, uncertain, or sickly cat into a self-assured, friendly, and healthy cat. At first, Summer was frightened of the new environment and new people, even becoming so uncomfortable¬†that she wouldn’t eat. She recovered emotionally and physically in time to endure a difficult birth, after which she didn’t seem quite sure how to be a mom. Through the weeks, I’ve watched Summer gain trust and confidence in being a mom and being a cat. Now she’s spayed, her babies are weaned, and it’s almost time for her to find a forever home where she can relax and be a kitten again. A happy ending for our mama is just around the corner.
