The animal I left with someone was abused by them?
I left my hamster, Autumn, with my 16 and 9 year old neighbors to watch for a week while I went on vacation. I told them that they shouldn't play with her since she is skittish and bites people. I also told them specifically how to feed and water her. Well, she bit the 9 year old because she tried to pick her up. The 16 year old poured out her food and took away her water, then hit Autumn. Autumn is a HAMSTER and he HIT her. She used to let me hold her, now she is SO SCARED she won't even let me touch her. Should I pay them like I promised? How to I regain her trust?!
