Today’s post is only minimally about organizing. After much consideration, I decided to foster a cat for the Humane Society. He followed us home one day and, after a month at the shelter, was still up for adoption. He has settled in very well and gets along with everyone, which is fortunate for us in the event he doesn’t find another home. I had no desire to bring a cat into my home, it just happened serendipitously.
What allowed me to make the decision fairly quickly was the fact that my home was ready to accept a pet. We don’t have clutter that would make the house dangerous for an animal and we have routines in place that allow us to keep doing what we do, even with an additional creature.
He is very low maintenance. So adding the feeding, box cleaning and grooming only take a little work each day. Just like an organizing project, you have to deal with a pet every day instead of saving it all up for a time that’s more convenient.
If anyone is interested in finding out more about a lovely, well mannered, 5-year-old neutered male cat, please let me know. He likes kids, but not other cats. Please help me find him a loving home.
