Imaginary Karin - Maja the cat

Let me introduce our new foster cat Bella!

A few months ago I talked about whether or not it would be a good idea to get a cat. Well, we decided to go with the foster home option and signed up to be a foster home for the local animal protection association :) The summers are always busy with unwanted cats and kittens and this year has apparently been unusually bad, so we decided to help out.

Bella have been living with us for little over a week now and she’s adorable :heart:
They told us she was pretty shy, so I expected her to go hide under the couch all the time, but she’s actually quite social and seem to like hanging around us. Every time you sit down somewhere she comes and wants to be cuddled with and if you talk to her she usually talks back (meow?). She’s only shy if there’s lots of people and commotion around, but that’s hardly unusual with cats.

The deal is she’s going to live with us until she finds a home of her own. Markus is already in love though, so right now I’m not sure he’d let anyone take her away :P

    Oh my god, she is precious!!! And I love cuddle bug kitties. :love: If you guys fall so in love with her that y’all can’t part, can you adopt her yourselves???

      Yes, she can stay here as long as she wants to :) Should we decide to keep her we’ll just tell the association and they’ll take her off their records.

    Ahh…another little tortie. I have actually had a total of six torties in my life. Got the first from my Princess & then every single tortie had another one. She is adorable & I imagine that your foster home is going to turn into a permanent home, lol. I know I would have a hard time giving her up. Plus, were you not saying that it would be nice to have an animal to cuddle with that wasn’t the size of Zappo?

      Wow, that’s a lot of torties. Bella is my first actually, I’ve had cats of most other colours/patterns before but never a tortie.

      Haha, yeah I think I’ve compared Zappo to a kitchen chair a few times XD That dog is the opposite of small and fluffy… He’s still very much my favourite, but it IS nice to have someone small and fluffy to hug for a change :)

    She’s so cute! It’s great that you guys are fostering cats. I would have a hard time parting with them, though! ;)

    She’s adorable! It looks like you’re being convinced to keep her. If you do, will you get other animals to foster? :heart:
