Meet our Forever Fosters!
What is a Forever Foster?
Sometimes the cats we bring into foster care have been through so much that moving them to another home would cause more harm than good. These are cats who have medical or behavioral issues, who are not necessarily able to be adopted for those reasons. They receive all the care they need through F.A.C.T. by their wonderful fosters, and their fosters have committed to caring for them for the rest of their lives.

Jerry was surrendered to us after his owner passed away. He is about 12-13 years old and diabetic. After he was moved into his foster home, it took several weeks to get his levels back to where they needed to be. It required many vet visits and changes in insulin dose. Fortunately, he finally settled into his foster home and is doing well now. We felt he could go through the same health troubles if moved again, and decided Jerry should be a forever foster.

Atlas is a 15-16 year old male who was on a list to be euthanized. He came to us extremely skittish. We don't know what happened to him to make him so scared of people, but after several months, he is still skittish, but not as afraid of his foster mom. We felt moving him would be detrimental to the progress he made to feel comfortable enough in his foster home, and decided he should be a forever foster so he could live out his golden years comfortably and not have to worry about being moved again.

Buca was surrendered to us because her previous owners were moving. We knew something was off because her tongue was always sticking out. As cute as this looked, we brought her to the vet to see what the problem could be. After having all her teeth removed, we learned she had stomatitis in her gums, which caused constant inflammation and discomfort. She started on medication to keep her comfortable, since there is no cure for it. After some time, a growth suddenly appeared on the side of her face. It grew rapidly, and she had surgery immediately to drain and clean up the area. Even after surgery and medications, it started growing back, which the vet determined was an infection, so she went on antibiotics, which, fortunately, cleared it up. She is now on two medications per day and can only eat certain types of canned food. She is doing well now, fortunately, but her foster mom has to be very hypervigilante to make sure she doesn't have another flare up. With how well her foster mom knows her and her issues, and how much Buca loves her foster mom (she even sleeps with her at night!), we felt it would be best to keep her with the person who has been so on top of her care, and not risk stressing Buca with another move, which could potentially lead to another flare up.
