2015.09.26 Adventures with cats and dogs
Last updated: None
It all started in 1995 after our cat Tanya, which I got from my sister-in-law Linda, died my husband and I started volunteering for Toronto Cat Rescue. I remember fostering our first cat on March 4, 1995 his name was Albert and there was no turning back since. My husband thought I had enough with one cat, but did I have a surprise for him. D'Arcy was all right with this when I accepted all the cats Toronto Cat Rescue sent me.
This went on for a while. We would get cats in then adopt them out. People would phone our place on Toronto Cat Rescue approval and come down to see them and pick one out that they liked. We had the people sign papers saying that they will not give them back to any other organization but Toronto Cat Rescue if they couldn't keep them.
The cats would come in with names and when my husband and I got them we would change their names with the help of the alphabet. That did not work out because every time I would bring the cats for check ups since we had many cats they asked me for the names the cat came in with and sometime I couldn't remember.
Other cats in our house caught the virus. Because of this Toronto Cat Rescue could not send me healthy cats so they started sending me the ones who had contracted FIP and FIV. Instead of adopting them out we kept them as happy and healthy as we could as long as they lived. You can read all about The cats that passed away in our care.
I had the opportunity to take care of a diabetic cat and learned a lot about feline diabetes. Here is how to administer insulin to your diabetic cat. If you want to try to protect your cat from most feline diseases keep them inside. You may keep you pet with you longer if you do.
I had three cats under our care when I went into the hospital on October 19, 2013 and D'Arcy couldn't care for them and work and come and see me in the hospital and get the house ready for my arrival back home. He asked the help of Ferne Sinkin of Toronto Cat Rescue to help put them in great foster homes. All the food and cat litter went back to Toronto Cat Rescue.
D'Arcy and I had the opportunity to help save some dogs as well. A terrific couple Ann and Pete who run a foster home for dogs. They were full at the time and asked me if I could take in some dogs. Although I still had cats at that time, without hesitation I said Yes!
I liked writing about all my animals.
So if you are thinking about adopting an animal. It would be wise to choose your pet from a place that fosters rescued animals like Toronto Cat Rescue or Ann and Pete’s Rescue and Foster Home for Dogs. The animals seem to know and are thankful.
