Can we have a smiley for drumming fingers, twiddling thumbs?

SJ, use the time to get some rest - I think you're going to need all the P&Q you can get before the happy event!

Good luck!  :luck: :relax:

Well i couldnt wait until monday so i popped along yesterday, karol was lovely, and had 2 kittens that she had been hand rearing since they were seven days unfortunatly there wasnt a good oppertunity to steal them but im sure ile get another chance!!! And the biggest fluffy monster babe iv ever seen!! Who kept interupting wanting a drink from the tap soooo cute lol

Ile be on six month trial period and then after that ile be able to rehome from my house atm ile take the little ones to her house to meet prospective homers and theyll be rehomed from there. She said that ile only ever have either a litter of kittens or one cat, or 2 if they are rescued together at a time. The vet they use is the one twix is registered with so thats good. And im under strict instruction that im not allowed to keep them all she sad it was ok if i decided i wanted one or 2 but as she has had 3 fosters who had to quit after they fostered up to 13 cats and kept them all  she didnt want me to just keep taking them in and keeping them forever :rofl: OH was very happy about that  :rofl:

Now its more waiting!!! But i was told that jean will ring me soon and then bring over a cage and everything and probably 2 kittens that came in yesterday!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I have no patience!!!!  :rofl: going to keep myself busy cleaning house and looking for toys i can buy on pay day!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Iv been trying but the ones im really after as they're closest and smaller so dont have bigger funds behind them dont operate at weekends obv cos theyre so small so im all impatient, the blue cross iv emailed and got the auto email reply, lol so iv spent today scrubbing the sapre room and fixing a lock to the door so critters can be quarentined (or how ever u spell that) turning into quite the DIY queen lol, dogs aint happy like wondering where theyre sunday walk is lol but twix is enjoying chasing the spiders that get uncovered.
Is there anything specific im going to need, apart from the essentials, first aid kits, carriers etc.
Im so excited da da da i just cant hide it u no u no u no i like it  :rofl: :rofl: honest been in such a good mood since i decided to do it lol

:luck: with it Sarah Jane  ;D I don't think we have any Durham based rescues on Purrs but that list that Janey posted will have all the ones local to you.

I've heard a few people in your position say that some rescues never even get back to them when they email offering to volunteer (I presume due to being so busy or not particularly internet savvy/focused). If you don't hear anything then I'd give them a quick ring  ;D

Rescues are always in need in fosterers/volunteers so best of luck!

It may take a while for them to get back to you but fingers crossed.  If not there may some more rescues here you could contact:

Well after a hectic few days,  :Crazy: :Crazy: and some hard thinking and a bit of research and some twisting of OH arm :sneaky:  and a bit of bad/good news from work (depending on whether your my dog or my landlord) i am dropping hours so will be home alot, I have decided to foster. Never done nothing like it before but after talking to OH and him not wanting the commitment of another animal and me being me and knowing fine well if i rescue one i will want to rescue them all i thought well if you foster you kind of are rescueing more.. :sneaky: lol and if the what everyone says is true i  might end up keeping a few. ...  :sneaky: :rofl:

 And reading posts on here of all your hard work and how many cats are needing homes atm i really want to give it a go. Iv emailed a few local rescues and havent really got anything back as of yet, but it is the weekend, but me being me i want it to happen now!! LoL so i thought id post on here see if this gets me anywhere today lol

Now im going to sort the spare room out and turn it into the cat room,  :rofl: :rofl: didnt mention that to OH  :rofl:
 Oh i live in durham thanks!!
