Things were awfully busy in the comment section this morning and there was much chit-chat about the possibility of us making one of the Dearborns a permanent resident in the home.
Just to let you all know we have no intentions adopting any of these kittens, or any other kittens or cats anytime soon.
The two main reasons are:
1. It works the way we have it. Why rock the boat? Charlene is open to the parade of kittens coming through our house, but I know that she's a special case and most cats wouldn't be as receptive. If we changed the dynamic, and brought in another cat, fostering might not work for us anymore, and I'm not willing to risk that.
2. We have plenty of cats. We have Charlene, and most of the time we have four, five or six kittens. That's a lot of poop to scoop. That's a lot of mouths to feed. It's a lot of work, and litter and food for so many does get expensive. Honestly, I don't want to increase the work load or cat care budget.
Now that we're all clear, let's end this discussion and move onto more important things. Like kitten names.
I'll be back shortly.
Thanks for understanding.
