I totally agree. Oddly enough, this was a different sitter from the previous year. The odds are incredible... And yes, we have severed our ties with the sitter in question. What's now disturbing to us, however, is the amount of retaliation we are getting from the sitter's friends who are now taking it upon themselves to attack us personally for posting a bad review. The attacks go as far as blaming Shae for her own disappearance, which is a logic we simply cannot follow.
Ah well, we just try to focus on the positive: Shae is back and ultimately that's all that matters. She lost nearly a pound from her 5 lb frame, which she is now slowly regaining. She has also been sleeping tons (20+ hrs / day) and seems to be suffering from separation anxiety. But we are slowly starting to see the old spark in her eyes so we are confident she will recover from her adventure soon.
Many thanks again to all of you for your well wishes!
