Trying not to foster fail...

...now that Huggy Bear has two applications in, and both look promising. I have a home visit with the first application on Thursday night.

I've had Huggy for almost five months now, the longest I've had any of the fosters. The rest have been adopted out within two weeks, so I haven't had a chance to become too attached. Now when I think about Huggy leaving, I tear up. Plus I don't know how he will cope with the move, especially since he is a senior. I don't want him thinking that he's been abandoned again or that he did anything wrong. I'm worried about him, but I'm also feeling a little selfish ("He's MY Huggy Bear!")

I know the positive is that I can save another dog, but I just don't know how I will cope with missing Huggy so much. Crying

Re: Trying not to foster fail...

  • Im going through the same thing with Joey and posted about it yesterday.  You've had Huggy so much longer than we've had Joey, I dont know if I'd be able to give him up if I had him that long.  I just keep on telling myself that if I dont adopt out Joey, another one wont be saved.  We might still end up adopting Joey and then still fostering another from time to time.  (I know that this probably hasnt helped you at all, but I just wanted to let you know that Im going through the same thing Wink )

    Tangent, I went to the B&B in Key West you recommended to me on facebook. It was awesome! Really quiet but close to everything.

  • i just had someone come visit foster kitten Stanley on friday...she is seeing one of the other kittens he was rescued with tomorrow, and then she'll let us know. we've only had him for 3 weeks, but i love the little squirt.  This is my first foster experience, so i made a promise to myself that i wouldn't fail lol

    I don't mean to be a stalker, but where did you stay in Key West? We stayed at the Wicker Guesthouse on Duval, and it was so awesome.

    Visit The Nest!

    Courtney's Place, just a couple blocks off of Duval on a little alleyway. It was pet friendly which was a plus.
