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!!!! 8O 8O 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.

NEVER!!!! :twisted: :twisted: We have a male cat named Dandelion why can't he be a honeybee? Cashmere? pistachio(before they are dyed red) latte? Au lait? Lots of good names I like honeybee and Spike said he was about as busy as a little bee! Look I wasn't around when the old man got his nickname and he got SPIKE! :evil: :twisted: :evil: :p I really like him He is sooo cute. I love his little honey colored body! Wish I was home to welcome him :(

Dandelion only comes out of your mouth.....he's Dandy, Dandrew, Dandyman, or just D. :lol: :lol: Anyway, like I said on the phone, he was mad as a hornet. He's gonna be really urinated since they shaved him.

** Just an update, vet said he was FeLV neg :) ......so he got neutered and shaved. I couldn't get back to the vet before they closed to pick him up though. Oh well, on my way home tomorrow.

LOL I love how "urinated" shows up in posts occasionally when people forget the censorship features on here. In fact, I like it way more than the actual "p-word" now. I might start using it on purpose.

Back on topic - Honeybee, or "H-dawg" as we'll have to call him, sure is handsome. I hope his test comes back okay so that we can keep him around for a while. ;) And Spike, I really think you do a great thing, in case I haven't told you.

I actually typed "urinated" cause I knew it'd be censored :lol: I think pi$$ works though 8)

Well, got TheBee back from the vet today. He didn't get completely shaved, just down the sides and his belly. Kinda has a mohawk down his back :roll: Anyway, he's still pretty upset, so no pics yet, sorry.

Course Spike does not want to call the cat Honeybee. He said we would call him Big B. I said "well why not wal-mart, Big K, Target"! Big B is the name of a drug store! 8O Then I told him I didn't think all the bees in the world minded that they were called honeybees, after all I think that usually there is just one female "queen bee" and the rest are male worker bees (drones). I still like honeybee. He looks like a honeysomething to me. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Muffinhands! BTW do you have a picture (somewhere) of a white kitten sitting in a wooden chair (reminds me of a stuffed toy)! Thought I saw it on the randoms, then it was gone!

Tim that is my LOVE name for Spike hahahaha :lol: :lol: :lol:

Awww, he looks like a Honey-something all right, what a sweet face! Poor guy, maybe he just needs a tougher nickname... how about Buzz? You guys do great things for all these kitties I hope his leg heals up well. We'll need some shaved pics of Honeybee now!

Just an update. Got to touch KillerBee's head today. His hair is very soft. Was a bit leary of touching him because he was crying/low yowling, but once I touched him, he quieted down. He's eating and drinking well and using the litterbox. He actually ate some wet food today, which is good 'cause I'm putting his antibiotics in with it. Still a bit soon for pics, but soon, I promise.
