Great Kids Sighting

I am a nanny, I have been following the blog for about a year and I feel bad sometimes when I see nannies dealing with problem children and parents as I am lucky with my NF. I don't know if this is allowed, but I want to tell a positive story about my NF. The family I work with love animals and rescue ANYTHING - fish, cats, dogs, birds - even a lizard and a caterpillar. I am nannying to work through veterinary school and my female charge, almost 7, wants to be a vet too! Well, one of her mother's friends who specializes in cat rescue found a cat in her yard wounded without an eye,right jaw harmed - the conclusion of the vet was sad - the cat had been attacked and left for dead by bad humans. My mini-me, I will say her first name - Shaunie- and the NF brought the cat - Maity ( like a pirate) back to life, Maity forgave humans and goes out with Shaunie to play with all the kids outside ( and share their lunches which is another story). So last week as we three - Shaunie, Maity and I were on the porch and several neighborhood kids rode up on their bikes with a question - they wanted to know what had happened to Maity ( Maity's appearance in the face is something that you have to get used to) I watched my mini-me hold forth on what the bad people did and how important it was to care about animals. All her friends were listening carefully. Before they all rode off I said   " You guys are ALL good kids to care about animals, and I  want each one of you to tell your mom and dad I said so! They all nodded seriously and rode off. There is hope for the nanny world !

I am really glad to receive a story like this - one of the most disturbing stories in the ISYN archives is a nanny who part of her duties was to feed a little hamster which the kids got for Christmas. They played with and loved it for 2 or 3 days and then forgot all about it and kept it isolated in a small cage in the basement. The nanny did what she could but the hamster became crazy basically - hissing etc. and passed away. I am glad for a different story!

Huh? They asked about a cat and that makes them great kids? More like they’re kids and we’re curious about the cat’s face... but sure. GREAT KIDS!!!

In the article - the Op says that these neighborhood kids play with the cat and like the cat and wanted to know what had happened to it. So often there are people that make fun of and are mean to a child or animal who is different, especially their face - it was a good OP - nice people for a change, I'd like to get more like that !!

What’s going with this site. I know you believe you get a lot of hits, but most like myself do check and leave after 10 seconds when we see no sightings. How about running one on Christmas bonuses and gifts, like the older moderator did. It’s been almost a month with no moment on this page.

Have a great day.

Fucking humans! Don't fuck with animals! Damn those that eat meat! Animals over people! It was their planet first!

I'm gonna have to pull my dick out and piss on all these motherfuckers!

And then I'll leave them with a wet shit!

Animal power!

Pretty disappointing to check in after a break of a few weeks and find not only no Christmas posts, but that the grossly offensive response right above mine has not been removed!

Exactly. Site is a joke.
