For the past week and a half an absolutely gorgeous smokey grey male has been hanging out in the yard. He is friendly and let me pet him within a day after showing up. Unfortunately, he is not neutered and by last night was spending a lot of time trying to assert his dominance over the very mellow boys in my group. So, last night I snatched him up and put him in a kennel in the garage. Today he is at the vet getting neutered & vaccinated. I hope the testosterone clears his system quickly so we (and the neighbors) don't have to listen to any more yowling matches in the night.

Job well done!! Hopefully this does help. We found it helped with some of our ferals, but not all! Keep us posted.

I just called the vet to see how Carlin (the new cat) is doing. Luckily he tested negative for FeLK and FIV (both of which were a worry for me since Scooter and Caruso tested positive lately). Whew!

Once I can figure out how to use my new digital camera, I'll take a picture of Carlin and the rest of the crew so y'all can see my sweet feral boys.

That is what I am hoping for. He is friendly and even though he was obviously very frightened by being locked in the kennel over night, he let me pick him up this morning without a struggle. I think he must have been dumped at our house or he may have had a home when he was younger and then got the boot. He is a bit heafty, so he has been eating well -- though it easily could be that he has been eating the food I leave out for quite some time, but took a while until he was brave enough to show himself.

He will go on the adoption page of our local humane society as soon as I get that picture!

Sadly a lot of cats are treated that way .

That is great news that you will place him on your local site and the way you were talking about him I am sure he gets soon a home

Wow, that was fast! YAY RENAE!!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder if he was a stray? There are too many people out there who just don't get it.... Either way, if he was a stray, you've done him and his family a wonderful service, and hopefully they'll find him posted at the humane society. Digital Cameras are wonderful things, aren't they?
