It's Official, No More Fostering

The owner of the rescue group is going to take the cats and put them back outside where they came from--out of spite?  To show us?  So all of this was for nothing.  
They wrecked the room and we tamed them and people are waiting to adopt them but she's going to show us, alright.

Honestly, I may not foster again

It was suppose to just be a couple of weeks and then the 6 Siamese would be adopted.
Until it was discovered that they had ringworm and WE had to quaratine them.  6 kittens in a bathroom for over a month now.  Out of boredom , they have chewed and scratched the wood baseboards so on top of having to scrub the walls, I'll have to paint them too.  They tore off all the veneer on one side of the cabinets.  Today they removed a decorative piece of the sink.  Lord only knows what they'll destroy next.
We didn't sign up for this.  I can't use my broom and dustpan because it's for their bathroom and it's contaminated.  Cleaning the rest of the house means using a combination of make-do things just to sweep the floor every day and it's annoying as hell.
No one else will take them because they're infected and they don't have any cage for them because they're infected so we're just stuck with them.
Never, never again.  And this weekend, I am going to demand that they take the 3 that have no lesions and do something else with them.  2 never got a single spot and 1 is all healed.  They need to go.
These are not MY cats and I'm done with this being MY problem.
The week after that, the next 3 are going, healthy or not.  We're having guests and I need that bathroom back.  I sure as shit am not moving them to a smaller bathroom to infect and destroy.  
In another couple of weeks the 3 bottle babies will be big enough for surgery and once they're adopted, I'm really thinking that I'll never do this again.  I'm not getting stuck again and they are absolututely going to take this personally and likely drop me as a foster anyway but dammit, I'm taking my home back.

Best Kitten Warming Pad I've Ever Used

All big now and weaned!  More or less. 

This warmy right here

saved the day when they were little and sick and couldn't regulate their body temp. We actually borrowed it from the rescue group and had to give it back but I think I need to get one for the next time a cat or kitten gets sick. 2 minutes in the microwave and it stays warm for hours, plus no wires!

We used it covered with a towel, even though it has a fuzzy cover, but that was mostly because tiny kittens are messy.

It CAN'T Be Parvo

She's better!  The antibiotics and the Imodium and the meds for vomiting and the IV fluids have brought her back!

I'm thinking of naming her Serenia, LOL

Aw man

They suspect parvo.  Most likely the kittens won't make it.
Maaaaaaaaan, this is why I never wanted to do hospice cats.
