Hi, I’m Jess Thoren!
I stumbled into kitten fostering in August of 2016. At the time, I was “dog person” who didn’t know the first thing about raising baby cats. If I’m being completely honest, I didn’t even start fostering with intentions of making an impact on more than a few kittens. I didn’t really even know there was such a huge need. I considered fostering as just a trial run for me to eventually get a pet of my own. I really wanted a puppy but I also didn’t have the time for one, so I thought kittens were the next best thing! I mean, who doesn’t love a baby animal?
I ended up falling in love with helping kittens. How could I not? Seeing what was once a shy, scared and hungry kitten learn to trust, love and play. I’m not sure if there is anything more beautiful than that.
Fast forward to today and while I still don’t have a pet of my own, I’ve saved 100+ kitten lives!
Kitten BnB is my way of making an even greater impact on the lives of kittens while sharing the joy they bring to me with others.
