Is there any way the kittens could stay in the master bathroom, so your cats could have the master bedroom and more space. Also, the rescues you contacted....contact them again and ask about courtesy posting on their website, this will help them get exposure to people looking for cats/kittens.

Good Luck

I have fostered many cats/kittens/moms and babies and my cats have been fine. I keep the fosters in a room and did not let my cats interact with them (except for once and that was an accident!) When I first started fostering, my cats would go up to the door and hiss and then walk away. After a couple months, my cats realized that the fosters were not staying and they basically forgot about the fosters, sometimes I would even catch my cats playing with the fosters under the door.

It got to the point where my boys didnt even react the one time fosters got out. When one of my fosters Trudy (1 yr old, spayed female, cross-eyed tabby) decided that she needed to come out and actually broke her way out while we were not there. I came home to Trudy loose with my boys and no one was hurt or fighting. Trudy had made herself right at home but her "foster-roommate" Audrey (3 yr old, Spayed female, LH tabby) was not that pleased with my boys so he was hiding in the foster room. My boys walked up to Audrey, she would hiss and they would leave. Trudy on the other hand was having a blast playing with the dogs and my cats.

I have fostered kittens with Giardia before, its such a pain!

sounds like you are doing everything right to keep your kitties safe, but dont forget that people can also get Giardia so make sure you wash your hands after scooping the litter box and when leaving the room they are in.

The suggestion about using Clorox wipes is a great idea!!

We had the same issue with Larry and wet food. He refused to eat it and we eventually had him locked in a room (he had surgery and had to be confined) and left the wet food down for 2 days before putting out fresh and he never touched it!

I kept buying different kinds (both flavors and textures) and then fancy feast came out with the appetizer things. I tried the chicken one and Larry LOVED it. He only eats the appetizers chicken and beef flavors (my other cats love the seafood flavors). Its strange but keep trying different flavors and textures and you might find something that she likes.
