I asked some questions about stormie but i didnt really get answers to them just the fleas and the ear mites, which all this i known because i have has numerous cats all my life lol!
Mabey just humor her, and say the fleas could have been there, what ever, and ignore that you know where they came from, LOL. Try just talking about the kitten and how she is doing, (now) and just not mention any thing about fleas or the mites, you have told her, if she checks hers she will know. Let her know that the vet thinks she is older then said, but because she told you her age, and the fact that she has them big ole feet you think that the age she gave you was right, and ask if she remembers a birthdate, just so you know it, and you can be sure when you tell the vet. It is hard to deal with some people some times
I am having a hard time with the lady I sold my horse to, infact I haven't been able to email her back. She sent me a nasty email about how her vet told her that MY horse was so lucky she found him and saved him (from me,
I just want to scream at her!) I rescued the horse 2 years ago, all 4 of his feet were abceses,they were all chipped and cracking, he was about 260-300lbs under weight, and about 40% of his body was covered in rain rott and he was loosing his hair! I spent 2 years working with this horse! I got most of the weight back and cleared up the rain rott, heis hair wouldn't grow and he was under weight so I had to blanket him all winter. I soaked all of his feet every day, as well as picked nasty scabs from rain rott, and had to take a rag soaked with anifungel crap and soak the scabs he had every where! I spent several hours every night in the freezing cold with this horse. In the end I decided (after getting his feet pretty much under control, they just needed a little more time growing out, getting most the weight on him, and getting the rott completely cleared up) that he would be better off with some one that had a drier pasture and more money then I do, you know, to finish what I had pretty much taken care of. Well she has the nerve (knowing what I had been through with this horse) to tell me how he is doing good now that she has him, and her vet, farrier said that he was so lucky she has him, and his feet and teeth hadn't been done in years! Then tell me who ever put his shoes on put the wrong ones on, well, shoes usually need to be reset, and wont stay on for years (a week before she bought him, I had his feet trimmed and had shoes put on the front to try and support the crack, thats all they were used for.) I sold him for way less then I should have, because he needed shots, and some wotk still, ect, but she knew it when she bought him, and to turn around and treat me like I put that horse in a bad condition, and how she would never sell him back to me after all the work SHE put in him, she wouldn't want him back in that condition! (she has had him for about 2 months) She says he has gained all this weight and he is doing so mich better now, come on, what could she have possible done for him in 2 months? All she had to do was put a few pounds on him and finish what I already mostly did for her, and now he is this 3000 horse that every one wants, and she almost traded for another horse. She is going to trade him in after 2 months, and I worked so hard with him for 2 years!
Sorry, this is completely off topic, I was stating that some times you have to try a different approach if you are going to get any where with them
