Had a request for a Shadow update. Our wayward guy made his way back from the vet after escaping their confines. From Monday afternoon to Thursday morning he made the one mile trek to our backyard, what a pleasant surprise when we saw him. He wasn’t a feral and was quite people friendly once he got used to during the backyard feeding. When we first saw him last February he had a big sore by his left ear. After time, before we started feeding him it was getting smaller.
Ok, fast forward to getting him to the vet. Once there, we found out that he he had ear mites, an additional infection in his left ear, hook worms, a
weak positive for feline aids and a upper respiratory infection so he is in our garage resting comfortably and recovering.
There is more medication and another visit to the vet in a week and a half for more possibly but he is so ready to come inside as he hears us in there doing the food thing and talking to the indoor guys. And the indoor guys know he is out there and are curious also. We would both love to let him in and be at home but for now he is better in the garage than outside. BTW I am sitting out there with him as I am composing this.
