What It's Like To Be A Foster Mom To Cats

Beth Ostrosky Stern may be best known as the blonde bombshell wife of radio host turned America's Got Talent judge Howard Stern, but the TV personality is much more than that.

To say she is an animal lover would be a massive understatement. Beth is an avid North Shore Animal League America advocate, and she fosters dozens of kittens at a time. Her Insta is filled with the most adorable cat pics, plus the heartwarming stories of those that find their "forever homes."

What's refreshing is that Beth shows all aspects of fostering — it isn't snuggles and cat selfies all the time. Cats come in all shapes and sizes, just like people. Some even have disabilities. For instance, Beth's cat Bella is blind, while another foster, Buddy, has no eyes at all. Beth doesn't shy away from showing those issues, or the hard work of dealing with many, many litter boxes.

If Taylor Swift made cat ladies cool, Beth Stern is making their tiny kitty voices heard. Up next, Beth's brood in all its furry glory. Prepare yourself for cuteness overload.

Fostering cats can mean little-to-no privacy. At least Beth is keeping it real: "Trying to pee in peace and Mr Friendly Peter Parker pushed the bathroom door open and jumped on my lap.... #PeeingAndTexting ❤️"
