Well, the pest fostering experience did not go very well. We loved them while they were with us but sadly they could not stay.
1) The kittens didn’t eat at all for the three days we had the dogs.
2) The kittens didn’t move from their hiding places for the three days we had the dogs.
3) The kittens didn’t show any sign of even attempting to get used to having dogs in the house.
4) Man oh, boy, am I allergic. I’m only just now getting back to being able to breathe.
So, sadly the dogs had to go back to their owner until they find a new foster family and then onwards to a new home.
The only good news to come from this is that my talking about the dogs at work convinced Heather to go adopt a dog from the Scottish SPCA in Ayr and she picked up Millie the puppy today. And while talking about Millie at the Christmas Dinner today she talked two others into going to the Scottish SPCA and picking up the brand new Rotweiler puppies that arrived today (and are only 3 weeks old!).
So, although Stuart and I couldn’t keep the doggies, three other dogs got adopted because of our venture.
And, Natalie at the Pet Fostering Service Scotland has promised me that I can still contribute to the cause by going and talking about the service or handing out flyers, etc, so hopefully there will be a lot of that in the near future.
