Anonymous asked: You shouldn't foster kittens if you cannot afford their vet bills.
I understand that you might feel that way - But these kittens would have been living on a farm with 30 other feral cats, dying of starvation, roundworms and botfly infections - No one was going to save them. In fact, they still have four brothers and sisters romping around the farm that no one is going to save - It will be a very slow and painful death this winter - At least with me, these three will have a chance at survival - Survival is good and survival is awesome.
If I dumped three feral infested kittens at the shelter - Know what would happen? They would be euthanized - Shelters are full - And if even if they *weren’t* full, all feral kittens are humanely euthanized because they only get worse in the shelter. Rescues are full.
Reading about Botflies, I am finding that they are pretty common - Lots of fosters just do the removal themselves …I’ve had lots of foster-animal-parents write me on Facebook to tell me how to do it step-by-step…. Just a new parasite to me… I have to start somewhere…
