A: A foster (parent) takes care of a child (or guinea pigs here) temporarily. The writer and whomever they live with "failed as fosters" because they adopted the guinea pigs.

It is confusing because the writer switches from talking about the guinea pigs (Tom and Jerry) and using "they" to suddenly using "we" (the writer and their family/cohabitants).
There is a hint of humor here too since adoption (of a child, guinea pig, etc.) is more desirable than foster care. Adoption agencies/animal shelters would like for people to adopt the children/animals.
