last night, my one wanderer Cleo came up to me. He is 10 years old and I rarely do see him. But until now has been the strongest and healthiest of my bunch. I went to pet him and my hand came away wet and smelled nasty. =( He had been in some sort of fight and had a wound on his neck that had abscessed. I picked him up and he was really good while we debreeded it and cleaned it and gave him some antibiotic. I can't keep this guy contained it would stress him out so badly and compromise his immune system which he needs to best this. But in all my years of doctoring wounds this was as bad as I have ever seen. I let him go afterwards so if you could just pray that he comes back home today, tomorrow and the next day so I can get more medicine into him- I would sure appreciate it. We are both keeping our eye out for him, and the cage that has no door that he spends the winter sleeping inside, we put out on the patio last night. He will sleep in that when the weather is nasty- but it is opened on both sides so he knows he can escape easily. It is my custom-made feral cage and the doors have been put aside until I need them.
