We’ve only just met, but I want you to know how much I love you. I love your little brown eyes and the way they look at me. I love the way your ears perk up and resemble a gremlin when you hear something you like. I love the way your little paws are so incredibly small for your body. I love the way you can’t get close enough to me– seriously, my lap is not close enough for you. I also love the way you trust me so immediately.
However, I hate the way you cower when I move too quickly or the way you shrink when a loud noise fills the space. It makes me sad that you’re so fearful and it breaks my heart to know that something had to happen to make you react this way.
It also breaks my heart to know that there is nothing I can do about the past. All I can do is do my very best to ensure your future home will make you feel safe and secure. You deserve that. All animals deserve that, and I promise to be the very best foster Mom until that family comes along.
Love you more and more.
