I am sure there are hundreds of amazing and honest foster parents in the world,
but ours wasn’t one of them. Because of her lies and antics, our guys cost us
roughly a thousand dollars more than they “should” have (given we’d already paid for some things) and cost them and us the stress of the back and forth of a quarantine.
What tipped me off? Her attitude when I told her the kids had ringworm. I knew no caring “parent” would deny the possibility of some saying “positive test result” and continue to endanger kittens by taking in MORE!.
They spent six weeks in a room we had set up for an incoming project.
They missed us, and Sammy continued to be depressed, missing what he has always had — cat buddies! We had to “suit up” (change clothes to go in) and delouse coming out…
two of us three times a day for weeks.
The only good news is that ringwom never killed anyone,
and they are now happily driving us crazy daily.
This includes Sam, who is stalked,
unable to take a dump in peace (the kitten share EVERYTHING),
and generally looks at us with the HELL were you thinking on his fuzzy face?
