Wiggles came into the CHS as a transfer from a rescue in the Yukon – young, scared and pregnant. Knowing the best environment for a mama dog to give birth and raise puppies is in a home situation, our Foster Coordinator quickly began her search for the perfect temporary home for the small white dog. Long-time foster parent Susan (and occasional CHS blog contributor!) offered her home and will be caring for the pooch family for the next several weeks. She will be documenting her foster adventure in a weekly series, Wiggles & Co.
I returned my foster kid (Simon the cat) to CHS so he would now be able to move forward in Adoptions . Hang in there Simon, your forever family is coming – you are a pretty cool feline even if you are the poster boy for the term “Cattitude”.
When the next foster list was sent out I joked with Jenn (Jennifer Finnegan, CHS Foster Coordinator) that I wanted the pregnant mom on the list. I was only kidding. “I will take whatever cat you decide to give me me now,” I said. Jenn has the habit of sending me the nicest cats that turn out to be Divas or Divos. Maybe they just sense that I am a dog person.
Jenn did not take my request as the joke it was intended to be. (more…)
