|This is Delyte. We thought we were fostering these two gray kittens, but it was unofficial and then we got stuck with them! At least if you are fostering for an agency, you don't have to keep them forever if no one else wants them. Or do you?
We've never fostered, really, and our person has not been too careful with quarantining the new kittens when she gets them. I guess she has been lucky. We would assume that the agency would screen them for the big diseases, but some of the lesser diseases? We certainly would not take a kitten who had visible runny nose, eyes, rear end, was lethargic, felt hot, etc. Since you have a large house and can keep them separated, that is good. Not sure about how you would transfer germs. Can you invest in some rubber gloves and maybe those shoe covers to put over your shoes when you go into the room? You don't have to do this forever, just when you first get them. Wouldn't the agencies give you guidelines about this sort of thing?
Wonderful that you want to foster, but I bet it is going to be very hard to give them up. Especially the little black ones ...
