As I have shared on another thread, I work with the Michigan Animal Rescue League as a volunteer and foster mom. I thought I would share some of the pictures of my 'babies'. All have been adopted into their forever homes. I had 25 kittens and 10 cats that I fostered between the beginning of May and the middle of December last year. I've already had 4 older ones this year and am waiting for the kitten season to begin. I'm making little quilts to put in the cages so when they are adopted, they can take something home with their smell on it to ease the transition. Last year, MARL adopted over 250 cats/kittens from our Luv-A-Pet center. My goal is to have a quilt/blankie for each one this year. I think I've lost my mind but I'll give it a good try. Many thanks to all who have helped me out with fabric, scraps, batting, good wishes and prayers. I could not do it by myself. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Until they all have homes,

I'm sure. After I asked that silly question I saw where you were from. I really want a kitty. I need to find a rescue shelter close by.

Wow - I have to hand it to you - I could never let go of a single one! They are all too cute. I really admire people who can do what you do.

It has been awhile since I have looked at the pictures and I'm sitting here with tears running down my face. Good tears because I know they all have good home but I miss them. They will all be my babies forever. There are so many more but will stop now, I've got to get going on all those little quilts. Thank you for letting me share them with everyone. If one person thinks about adopting from a shelter because of them, I will be thrilled. There are abandoned kitties in every part of this country looking for their forever homes and it has goten much worse with this economy. Take care and thanks again.
Until they all have homes,
Wendy B

Ohh, that Sandi has my heart!

Why did you call Camille your foster failure? She looks so sweet.
