As some of you know, I've gotten a trap and have started trapping some of the stray/ferals that hang out here. The first was Cracker-Jack; got him neutered, a rabies shot and let him go. He still comes around at night......he stays away from the trap though
I set the trap again last night and thought for sure I'd get Meeko because he was up on the table where the trap is before I could even walk away. Meeko's a smart one though, he let little Honeybee get in there instead. Got Honeybee. Took the 'Bee up to isolation w/the usual food, water, 'box. Took the catch to the vet when I got home today ( I was lucky, 'Bee was laying in a carrier we keep in the room). 'Bee had to be sedated in order to examine HIM.....yes, it's a boy!!!!
Poor guy, he has a sore on his left leg, and his long hair is so matted that it started peeling off at the skin. The vet said they'll shave him while he's under getting fixed. He'll get tested for FeLV and if that's ok, he gets fixed, a FeLV and rabies vac, a nice shave, and come back to a permanent home. Here are a couple of pics from last night.
He was not happy.....and not feeling very good either.
This is the sore on his back leg. Vet said it was probably a bite that he'd licked raw.
I'll get more pics after I get him back tomorrow.
