Cocoa Bean & Pinto Bean came to me with their mom, MarMar, and sisters, Poppyseed & Pepita. Unfortunately, MarMar hated it here. She went on a hunger strike, stopped taking care of her babies, then actually started attacking them. It was the worst thing I’ve ever been through in my fostering career. In the end, both sisters died. MarMar was returned to the shelter, spayed and adopted out. Cocoa Bean tried his hardest to die but I talked him out of it. Pinto Bean just kept plugging along like the easy going boy he was.
Extra special thanks to @lafosterkittens for being my late-night support system during this time 👊
