    All of our kittens will be examined prior to entering your home, one of the things we look for is ringworm, which is a prevalent fungus in this valley. Some kittens may have been exposed and don’t present with symptoms for a week or two. Although, we will never knowingly give you a kitten with ringworm, the prevalence of this in the valley and the time it can take from exposure to becoming symptomatic means that some kittens may have ringworm without us knowing. While we will do our best to avoid this situation, should any kittens come down with ringworm while in your home, we would ask you to continue to foster them through their treatment as we have no physical set up for them to be transferred to for care. All supplies would be provided for the treatment and support would be given along the way if needed. Treatment can take up to six weeks, however with aggressive treatment we hope to lower that timeframe considerably. Please check the box below to indicate you have read and understand the above statement, further details will be provided at the time of the home visit.

    Yes, I have read the above statement and understand if kittens develop ringworm while I am fostering them, I would continue to foster them until they are healthy.
