Part of my decision has to do with the enormous amount of time and energy I put into my rescue work and fostering of cats and kittens. Just recently I took on this little guy:
I also brought home these three cuties plus their momma on Tuesday because they needed a foster home. We have been inundated with kittens and cats these past couple months and all of our fosters are completely full. How could I say no to these adorable little faces? Mom who is not pictured is named Calpurnia. Her baby boys are Jem (kitty in back), Atticus (kitty w/spot on nose) and Boo Radley (fluffy kitty).
I also have 4 other adult fosters and 4 cats of my own to take care of. Time is lacking because I work 30 hours a week and every Saturday and Sunday I am out at Petco doing adoptions all day long. I also have an energetic eight year old who has been wonderful about helping mom with all the kitties. It may be a lot of work but if I didn't have bills to pay rescue work is what I would do full time. I've never been so worn out in my life but the kitten kisses more than make up for it. So there you have it-I'll still be posting about what I'm reading but after I finish this current batch of review books I am done til 2014!
