Quarantine Area

The supposed quarantine area. Or extra runs for the animals he has no room for? A foot or less between fences where anything could be transferred. The Parvo virus can live in the soil for up to 6 months, Giardia can also be passed easily through feces and live in the soil. There is nothing preventing them form passing URIs to other cats. A very poor quarantine area. Or is this how its done in Mexico? What we do know is, as told by a visitor to the Foundation, and seeing aerial views of Stage 2, many small enclosures, on very small land. The feeling the visitor had was not comforting, in fact, they were struck by the unnatural environment. It did not strike them as a sanctuary, more like a zoo. The house visit was also uncomfortable. They saw an extremely unnatural scenario where they observed many visitors interacting with the cubs while Serio stood in the background encouraging his guests to do so. This only confirms the commodification of the animals in his care.
