I got an email the other day about an event that the Yavapai Humane Society held at the Canyon Run Senior Apartments as part of their Senior for Seniors program. The Humane Society took four sweet senior cats and had an adoption event. The senior kitties met seniors at the senior apartments and new families were formed! All four cats were adopted!
The senior for seniors program waives the adoption fees of animals over five years for adopters who are aged 59 or older. It is a really nice thing to do for those older cats and long term cats, and a fabulous thing for our seniors!

I have been qa kitten foster mom in the past, and after reading about this event really makes me want to jump back into it. I just loved that time with those babies. :)

And of course as I mentioned I used to be a kitten foster mom, I just had to share some pics!
|Fostering kittens means you get to enjoy lots of cuteness, but it is also lots of work.|
|Chance was absolutely one of the cutest and most toy-like kittens ever.|
|Being a kitten foster mom means you get a lot scratches, but it is worth it.|
|I called him Phantom, because he reminded me of the Phantom of the Opera.|
|This is Abigail (We had to keep her extra long because she didn’t gain weight like the others. It all worked out though, because Dave adopted her!|
