So awesome to read about this. The first cats I adopted as an adult were from CAT, when I lived in Portland. I loved those boys! Sadly both have passed due to age but they were wonderful first cats and my experience with CAT was excellent as well.
As a former Portlander, I know how hard ASAP works to coordinate among the different shelters and animal control agencies in the area. Kudos to Kristi for all her hard work! I will have to take a look at the Fostering for Rock Stars program...we need more kitten fosters so badly.
