Hi I was just looking to see if anyone else has had to foster out any cats for a period of time ?
The backgound story...
I lived down south with my other half and his mother for 2 years in her flat but I am originally from Glasgow.
His mother decided to downsize and we also found out that I am pregnant so we have had to move up north into my parents house and we do not have the money together yet for a mortgage.
We have/had 2 gorgeous kittens that adore/d us but unfortunately we had to foster them out to friends as they could not come to my parents house. They already have a cat. And the mother in law is staying at a friends until she sorts out her loving situation.
We drove them in a van up to Glasgow and a friend agreed to have them but that only lasted a 2 months as he developed hay fever.
Then we moved them onto my mums friend who only lasted 3 weeks as she has never had cats before and couldn't adjust.
So we recently had to move them somewhere else 40 mins away from us and each time I have gone to see them they are distant from me and I know this will be normal for them to react like this but these cats literally doted on me I treated them like a little Prince and princess and they always wanted to be close to us . They would wait at the stairs for me coming home from work, always sit on my lap and follow me round the house and now when we visit they don't seem interested. The amount of guilt I feel over having to get them refostered again and again has been awful It sends me to tears whenever I think about them.
They are my babies.
They are having to be fostered for 9 months until I am back to work and can get approved for a mortgage.
How can I get my bond/relationship back with my cats when we move them into our new bought house ??
Anyone ever had to do anything like this before just looking for some advice or support really x
