Foster Tails 2023: Kim Leja

SHARE:

Learn about the joys of fostering kittens from volunteer foster Kim Leja.

I started fostering in the fall of 2017. From the minute I had my first fosters, I knew this was my calling. When I’m in the kitten room, I think I might be the happiest person, seeing those cute faces as I wake them up in the morning. It is so precious and a special time. I enjoy taking cute photos and videos and sharing them with friends in hopes that I will find the perfect home for them. By finding homes through this network, I get to see photos from the new parents through the years – social media has been particularly helpful for that. When potential adopters reach out, I always try to set up a meet-and-greet in a very comfortable setting, so the kittens show their true personality. Looking forward to what 2023 kitten fostering brings!
