Kate and Paul Miller have a full house. Permanent residents in their Kennedale home include 2 adults, 2 kids, 2 dogs and 2 cats. But the Miller’s say there is plenty of space for more.
About a month ago, they invited Bob into the family. He’s a 6-month-old kitten in foster care who loves to play and cuddle. “They needed somebody quickly so we stepped in,” said Kate. Through Dallas Pets Alive, they took him in with open arms.
Bob was two days away from being euthanized. He was sick and needed care and a place to stay. He was underweight, spent a lot of time at the hospital getting treatment, and had to get his tail amputated.
The family named him Bob after Bob Marley. They found hope in the lyrics “Everything’s gonna be alright.” They hoped that with a foster home, Bob would soon be alright.
The Miller’s have now raised him into a healthy and happy kitten. Bob is ready to find his forever home.
Georgette, their 7-year-old daughter, knows how fostering can change lives. “I like to foster so we can save animals that are hurt or sick, that they don’t get put down, said Georgette, “Animals are the best thing that God made ever.”
This family has fostered 23 cats and dogs sand found all of them adoptive families.
“It brings so much to our lives because our kids are learning in a very small way how to love something that is not their and they know is going to leave. And they love it," Kate said.
