• New foster babies in the house!! 🐱🎉 Meet Melody (left) and Harmony (right). We've been hanging with them for close to 4 days now. These 2 sweethearts are sisters! Melody is just a tiny little thing and came to us very underweight, but we are working to fix that! She's already gained 50 grams, yay! She's made big strides since we got her, she came to us very hissy and very low energy. The hissy bits are behind us and she's really been coming to life! Harmony is fearless, she loves to explore and eat. I'm not 100% sure about their back story, but I know they are about 4 weeks old and definitely spent a while outside (I spent a while picking burrs from their fur.) We'll be sharing our home with these cuties for another 3-4 weeks. I can't wait to see their little personalities come out out as their weight increases and they get a little older! 💕🐈 We haven't been doing this long, but if you want to know more about fostering, leave your questions in the comments below! 👍

  • 🐱🎉 Success!!! Less than 2 days of being officially adoptable, Forrest & Gump have found the forever home TOGETHER!! I already miss these guys so so much. Here they are "helping" me bullet journal. In the next two pics, we'd only had them for 1 day. With a lot of love and attention they went from hissy little things to curious, playful, cuddly little babies. (Gump is grey/white, Forrest is black)

We successfully fostered these little guys, and I am SO insanely happy they get to stay together because they love each other so much. Our rescue said that black kittens never go that fast and that having beautiful pictures of them really helped.

If you foster and have the ability to take nice clear pics showing your furry buds in an environment where they feel comfortable, DO IT. It's so much easier for potential adopters to imagine their new friends in there home when they are not seeing photos of them looking uncomfortable (or even in a cage.) Congrats to Forrest & Gump, I wish you guys the very best!! 😘😊 Lots of happy tears today!

  • New Recipe! Vegan Spicy Buffalo Tofu "Wings" 💥🔥

Making these spicy Vegan Buffalo Tofu “Wings” is foolproof! The crispy tofu soaks up plenty of the tangy & spicy Buffalo sauce. Mellow out the heat with homemade Vegan Ranch Dressing. These Vegan Buffalo Tofu "Wings" with ranch are ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. Leftovers are great for repurposing in vegan Buffalo Ranch wraps. 😋

  • 🐱❤ EXCITING UPDATE: We've been fostering these 2 adorable gremlins! Meet Gump (first pic) and Forrest (second pic). Forrest and Gump have been staying with us for the last 2 weeks and will be here for another week and then they all be ready for adoption! We've always been "dog people" and this is our first time caring for kittens together. It's been quite the experience so far! 😊

We'll be working with kittens who are too young to be adopted. Some of you may know that our sweet pooch Lacey was a foster fail from our first time fostering with senior dogs. Sadly she is no longer with us after being diagnosed with aggressive bone cancer this past spring. This left us with space in our hearts and our home to help other animals in need. 💕🐶🐱 Lacey managed to teach us many things, one of which was that fostering is the absolute best!! SO many rescue organizations are desperate for foster homes. I highly recommend giving fostering a try if you have time and love to offer. Most organizations cover ALL costs, you just need to provide a safe environment and tons of love. Many rescue organizations see a huge influx of animals in the summer, so now is a great time to get involved. Our small city has at least 4 organizations with foster programs.

Thank you to William for being open to trying new things and being willing to try fostering again even though we "failed" our first time 😆 
Thank you to Hannah of @kittenxlady for inspiring me to try fostering kittens and teaching me everything I needed to know (and for convincing me that you can help even if you have a very small space.) Thank you to Margaret of @plantphilosophy and her beautiful cats, Hunter and Noodle, for making me question my "dog people" ways.

And thank you to my fellow foster parents of every variety!
