Merlin was one of those cats who lived at the League for a long time. A big bruiser, who liked to hang out, Merlin went unnoticed by potential adopters, but not staff and volunteers. He was always a favorite. So, when a loyal League volunteer offered to foster Merlin we all celebrated his move to a temporary home. An appeal on the League's Facebook page struck a chord with a potential adopter, and in no time Merlin moved on to his forever home where he is "doing great," reports his new person. Being a foster home is not easy -- it's hard not to become so attached that it's impossible to give the animal up. But, when fosters end up becoming adopters, we lose those foster homes. Merlin was lucky to be offered a foster home, and lucky for the League that Merlin's foster person was able, with reservation, to let go. Maybe she will open up her spare room to another foster cat soon!
