If you had a choice between fostering and adopting, which would you do?
Since Prince died (it was a while back, last Saturday of the Easter holidays - I didn't post about, it was a complete shock and putting a post up anywhere about it just wasn't really top of my priorities at the time, and now I've finally finished the sob-a-thon I really don't want to start again(!)) I've been torn between:
A) getting another hamster and having the heartbreak of watching them age and pass away;
or, B) fostering and having the heartbreak of having to send them off to a new home! Though at least you'd know they were being loved and spoiled, but I imagine it wouldn't be easy the first few times. And you'd be opening up a space at a rescue centre for another rodent.
I imagine if I did do it'd be with the RSPCA - they seem to have a nice system for doing it and it seems organised and like you'd have someone to "fall back on" if something went wrong, which strikes me as reassuring.
So, your thoughts?
