VIDEO: Woman Quits Her Day Job to Foster Kittens Full Time

Fostering kittens is hard work — and nobody knows that better than Chrissy Morris, who dedicated her home to caring for rescued cats from her local shelter.

But it’s also a dream job.

That’s one reason Chrissy quit her day job to care for these cats in need. And while the adorable felines with their “kitten emergencies” can be a handful, she says that nothing else could make her so happy.

Thank you, Chrissy, for saving these kitties and giving them the loving care they so desperately need.

    You are a wonderful person, Chrissy. Thank you for fostering all these kitties! I would love to do what you do but am afraid I would be a foster failure and I already have two dogs, two cats and two birds. I would fall in love with each and every one of them.

    Wonderful. I’ve fostered quite a few kittens and older cats too, who showed up at my back door since I’m near a park. I haven’t seen any lately since I rescued a big lab. I still have one of the former kittens, he’s a one-eyed sweetie. He’s the youngest, the others have passed on. I haven’t had any new kittens born around here due to the dog’s presence, I assume.

    If more people took time off to care for vulnerable, sick, or, abandoned Cats and Dogs? The World would be a far Better Place!

    What a heartwarming story of true love and dedication. The video was beautiful and brought tears of joy to me watching all the happy cats and kittens running around and full of life. Many thanks and hugs to Christie and Ed, young people full of compassion, concern and love for the lives of those animals.

    I just wish there were more people like Chrissy and Ed in this world. I’ve fostered, ended up keeping four, experienced the upset and happiness of animal rescue and seen first hand the cruel attitudes and harm done to animals. This story made me cry as such caring human beings can be hard to find. If you adore animals and have the time and money to care for them do go into fostering, there are thousands upon thousands of animals needing the true love they deserve to help them find their forever homes.

    I’m so proud of you! I rescued 5 kittens just 2 weeks old and I know what it was like. Around the clock feedings and cleaning all the time. Just like when you are a new human mom. People that haven’t foster kittens have no idea that kittens can’t keep their body temperature stable and must be kept warm to eat. They must also get their butts rubbed to stimulate them to pee. I mean it’s a really big job. I have 4 dogs. I swore I wouldn’t keep any of the cars but they were all black. I ended up keeping 2 of them and I can’t imagine my life without them!! They love me back as if to say thank you for saving my life. It’s trully sweet every day!

    Lovely people and they are bringing healing and happiness to so many cats. I wonder though if she gives up her job, how does she compensate for the lack of earnings? Does the rescue centre actually pay the foster? I don’t know how the system works. Anyone?

      Hi Cindi,

      I’ve personally never known of a rescue center that compensated fosters, but that doesn’t mean that maybe there is one out there with the funds to actually do so? Anyone else ever heard of this?
      I have a friend who regularly fosters kittens in MO and it’s def a volunteer-based program, no compensation. It seems more likely to me that this family is simply well off enough that she didn’t actually need that day job at all to begin with & prob had it merely for something to do/a way to meet people/etc. (But I could be wrong abt this.)

    In a failed foster of eight! To shy or still but feral didn’t show well at adoption events. I love them even my weird ones. I encourage them to be themselves and they have thrived in my home. God bless you and you BF for your work

    Chrissy and Ed you are delightful. And wonderful. I loved watching your video. I cried along with you. So glad those kittens have you. I did cat rescue in California. I felt so guilty that I wasn’t able to spend more time with them. (I had to work). That is wonderful that you could quit your day job and take perfect care of those babies. Thank you for all you do.
