Some months ago I made an application to a local animal resue to become a cat fosterer. I didn't hear anything back in the following weeks so it went completely out of my mind. This morning I received a phone call out of the blue regarding....yup, you guessed it - becoming a cat fosterer. It was so unexpected I didn't quite know what to say on the phone. The woman said that although they could fund food for the animal the majority of fosterers did this out of their own pockets as a way of helping out the rescue further- she also asked if this would be a problem. Having gabbled my details down the phone and the woman saying that someone would be intouch in due course I put down the phone and began to evaluate the situation. I spoke to the OH and we were both sadly in agreement that fostering just wouldn't be a viable option at the moment as we just aren't in a position to fund-well-anything really. The OH is still desperately looking for a job having left the army I just emailed the rescue now to let them know that having had the chance to talk things through with the OH fostering really isn't viable right now after all. I made a donation and offered to help out with home checks in this neck of the woods instead but I still feel like crap TBH. In my heart of hearts I know it's the right decision but just ARRGHHHHHHHH, why did they have to call now?!
