"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Help Medicate Foster Kitty

Mom n' Mooshoo socialize. He likes to snuffle ears.
The project:
Help medicate and socialize with a kitty Mom is fostering during our stay in Washington.

It only takes a couple of minutes to hold the kitty while Mom gives him his drops. No big deal. Wiping a kitty's dripping eyes and oozing nose takes seconds, and is probably among the most disgusting things I can think of...strangely. And socializing the kitty - it's a cinch with Mooshoo.

Why bother?
Whenever they're in Washington, Mom n' Doug foster kitties from the local no-kill shelter. The shelter, now knowing them, usually gives them the bottom of the barrel - unsocial kitties, frightened or shy kitties, or sick kitties; basically, kitties who need extra love and care that is hard to provide in a kennel/shelter situation.

When we visit, we're just along for the ride on this fostering program, but the girls and I enjoy the extra furry company - particularly when they're as friendly and playful as this boy turned out to be once he could see and breathe again.

Worth it?
