The language was like listening to your neighbor talk about her cat's latest adorable antic. No scientific explanations or speculations were included to interrupt the warm fuzzies you feel with each page. Another pass by a proofreader could have been used, but does not distract from the pleasure.
Just reading one of these three-to-four-page stories will make you laugh and warm your heart. All in all, this is a book I'm glad I bought and one I'll pick up and read again and again.
By "gets", I mean she both understands them AND that she takes in fosters cats until they have a forever home. In my opinion what she does is s bloody difficult. Every take-in I ever did, every rescue I enacted (with one exception where I kept only one of six orphaned feral kittens), ended up in my acquiring a cat, a mutt cat. Each time that happned I was literally on the verge of purchasing a purebred cat I'd lusted after. EACH TIME that was an either or decision. I fell for the "need" not the pedigree, every time.
Helen's accounts reveal to us the personalities of her fosters and what they brought to her life. It illustrates how she came to be "crazy" and why "crazy" is often a good thing to be, in my opinion..
Rescue cats aren't free, though you pay less for a rescue than a pedigree, even if it's only "pet quality" not "show quality" pedigree cat.. A fee is charged by the adopting agency for vet services (a small fee, as the services are largely donated and it's supplies and medications that are financed by those fees) for some of the food consumed by these balls of love an claws and also for microchipping and necessary shots. You're going to pay that for a take-in, whether it comes to your door or you go to a shelter.
What Helen GETS and tells you about is what it is that makes people foster throwaways. She tells you that in passing, as she relates the story of her time with some of those fosters she took in and waited to find homes for, as well as those she took in who successfully evaded "regifting" as it were.Read more ›
