Re: cat and dog feces

So, you're saying that the animals are using the whole house as their bathroom? One interesting fact...no animals would live like that normally, they don't live in their own feces unless they're forced to...which is what it sounds like.

Maybe caling the health department would be a good start? The kids are living in a hazardous environment that's beyond their control...and if the parents aren't smart enough to know that, then it would be good to bring in the authorities.

I don't think you'll convince the parents to understand they're hurting themselves or the kids. Common sense has left the building.

Re: cat and dog feces

All kinds of bad things are present in feces... e-coli, parasites, salmonella, etc. There is little doubt those children are suffering from that kind of filth.

You alone will not be able to change these people's minds or behavior. I do not readily encourage anyone to call a children's protective hotline without a darned good reason. This is a darned good reason. Please get the health department or a protective organization involved ASAP.
