Beanie had an injury to her left front leg possibly requiring amputation and needed a foster to provide rest, pain management, and feeding since she was not eating well. I decided to become her foster mom. I thought adoption was a possible outcome, but had concerns about my cat’s acceptance of a new member to the family.
Beanie thrived in the home environment, and her leg injury improved. We became very close. She is so sweet and cuddly. Beanie lets me hold her and cuddle her whenever and for however long I want to. She fills an empty spot I didn’t even realize I had. She and my cat co-exist, so adoption became a very real option.
This is considered a “foster fail” because it doesn’t follow the planned progression of foster care provided to potential pets with special circumstances. But for me, it has been a foster success. The final goal was met: Beanie got her home!
