We used to be involved in cat rescue. We both have some guilt about buying a cat, but of course we are not talking about that. We are picking said kitten up tomorrow.
Yesterday, a casual friend and very dedicated rescue person posted on Nextdoor that her group was helping a hoarder and she currently has 22 kittens in urgent need of fostering and that there are another 70 cats and kittens waiting for places to go.
I suggested to hubs that since we can’t foster while introducing a new kitten to the resident cats, that we should buy some kitten food and litter for them. Hubs made a big enough Chewy order to qualify for free shipment.
Guilt is expensive.
