Example text

We were lucky that the Old Windsor site was surrounded by rolling fields and beautiful walks along the Thames. The surrounding area was rural, with towpaths and meadows, plenty for dogs to sniff and see. On one freezing cold day, we set off briskly out of the Battersea site, crossed the main road and went down the hill towards the river. Despite her strength, Foxy was lovely to walk. She never pulled you forward or tugged at her lead. We bounced along at a comfortable pace alongside the fields that stretched out to our left, and Foxy was enthralled by all the sights and smells.

When I glanced back, Faith was standing to attention and watching me with an expression that could only have meant: Where are you going? That was what I found so hard about fostering. The dog doesn’t know it’s a temporary arrangement so it gets attached to you, as it would to its loving owner. My only comfort was that I knew where Faith was going: she would live a comfortable and happy life. I returned to my regular Tuesdays, and Foxy was still waiting for our walks. In time, a man and his son fell in love with her and, though she was still wary of men, they were determined to give her a good life.

In the cattery, the cats enjoy social time with volunteers like Eunice, who sits in the frosted glass pods and gives much wanted and needed pampering. During her time as a volunteer, she’s learnt a lot about what the cats might want from their time together. Some like to be stroked and to sit on her lap, others want to play while a few may be a little bit scared of their new surroundings. In those cases, Eunice usually takes a spot on the floor and talks gently to the frightened cat. She’ll tell them about her day, or quietly read her emails to the cat she’s socializing.
