Most of the cats that I foster have been through some traumas. If I look behind, five of the kittens that are with me were thrown in a closed bag at the garbage together with their mother. Another cat was living at a market mostly on the roofs being unaccepted by people. Molly was thrown out of a moving car together with her three kittens who thankfully were already adopted.
Each cat has a sad story. The most important thing that they need now, of course beside food and a safe place, they need to feel they are loved and accepted. For them is very important for me to spend some time with them daily and give them those cuddles they are so desperate to get. This helps them to get over the traumas they have been through and makes them ready for their next families.
