Word on t he
I foster, and at one point this year I had 17 fosters in my
home (two mamas, both with large litters). I really felt
overwhelmed at first, but knowing all the lives that were
being saved made it well worth it.

Have you ever had more cats than you could handle? Q:
At one point, as a professional cat
sitter, I was looking after 15 rescues in
one home. It surprised me that, in no
time, I could say it was no more time
consuming or difficult than looking
after two! Watching that clowder —
after all the “chores” were done
— was an enlightening, rewarding and humbling lesson.

I have six cats and
one dog. This is
my limit. I also
feed about five outdoor
neighborhood cats. If I didn’t
limit myself, I would go
overboard with cats in the house.
