A new year!

I can't believe it's been a year since we posted in our blog. Since that year we have found a home for a sweet little boy and his new name is Mojo.....We didn't have him long enough for a picture as he was already neutured and was easy to find a home for.The next guy is harder. He is one of the towns feral cats. I watched him all last winter roaming around out in the freezing temps....I just keep feeding him and talking to him and finally when spring rolled around he was feeling like he could trust me....He sprays non-stop, the neighbors are mad and want him destroyed. I took him in and got him to the vet's. Had him neutered and shaved all the bad mats off him. The vet estimates that he has been outside for 4 years. He has the largest jaw muscles the vet has seen in many years. That's from eating wild prey for 4 years. He is so affectionate. He now loves me and lives here at my home but he still sprays. The vet says when the weather turns cold, put him in a nice sunny room and we will try amitriptyline for a few months, hopefully between not going out to spray and the behavior drugs, he will forget come spring, that he used to spray...we are hoping. The only other option is to find him a farm where someone will feed him....
to try and break the habit of spraying. he can't wonder the house as he sprays every 2 feet.

Owen has a boo boo

Owen, the latest stray has a boo boo. He is waiting to get neutered and can't seem to keep out of trouble...I guess he was having a little TOO much fun with the girls and one of them must have bit him. For all I know, one of my girls did it since he is always pestering them. They are spayed (all 3 of the girls)but he still likes to torment them.
The other day I noticed the base of his tail looked swollen so I checked it out and sure enough there was a couple of bite marks that had festered. I luckily keep some antibiotic ointment on hand for cats and put some on.
Well, no sooner do i get it on there and Owen licks it off. I decided he needed a bandaid.
I found some clean cloths to cut up and used the tape gun because it has nice wide tape. I managed to finally get it on his tail. He did not like the fact that I put him in the bathroom sink to do it but I only having 2 hands, it was easier to pin him down in the sink.
When I was done he wanted outside so off he went. I wondered how long it would stay on his tail.
The next morning i found it out on the back porch and it wasn't attached to Owen,lol.
I think it stayed on long enough to get the meds soaked in because today his sore looks much better. I tried to bandage him up again but it lasted about 30 mins so I gave up. I will keep an eye on his sore over the next few days to be sure the meds did the trick.
