Happy TailsStories that make our tails wag!
Next month will be my one year anniversary as an employee at MCPAWS. While being an employee here is wonderful, one of my most favorite parts of the job is getting to foster kittens! That brings me to my failed foster Freckles.
Freckles was the 13th kitten that I had fostered and I can truly say it was love at first sight, or first hiss if you ask her. I had finished my dog kennel shift and I had heard that we had a pretty cute little yellow kitten upstairs. When I approached her kennel she started hissing and spitting and falling all over herself while head nudging and purring! It was quite the combination of emotions, if you can imagine. It was in that moment that I fell in absolute love with this darling, overly dramatic kitten. I took Freckles home to foster and it was quite clear she had cattitude. She did pretty much whatever she wanted, when she wanted, and it didn’t matter what got in her path.
She quickly made friends with my other cat and my dog Sid. The more time I spent with her, the more obvious it became that she was home, and none of us had any intentions of her leaving. She really is the best. She loves to snuggle with us, the dog, and the other cat. She gives the best kisses. She is always making us laugh with her silly antics and uncoordinated demeanor. She’s a lot more doglike than she is catlike, but it makes her unique and it makes for some funny entertainment. She is just the best and fits right in with the rest of us!
