    Please pray for the little outdoor tuxie

    The little tuxie hadn't been coming around as much lately but seemed fine when he did. Last time I saw him was Sunday night. He wasn't there at supper time. I peeked out at bedtime and saw him coming to the porch to eat. His mom was there and hissed and swatted at him like she was trying to chase him off.

    I went out and shooed her away so he could eat. He ate fine and acted fine. I didn't see him at all yesterday. Still not there for breakfast this morning.

    Then I saw him sitting in the tall grass in the yard of the empty house next door where they hang out. When I called him, he started over here. I couldn't believe it was him.

    He walks with his head tilted to the left and wobbles and falls over. His mom was hissing and growling at him. I shooed her off. I put some food down for him. He only would come to eat if I backed off. So I couldn't get close to him. He ate well though.

    I tried to get hold of him so I could get him to the vet but couldn't. You'd think I could catch a poor kitten who kept falling down but he got back in the yard next door. That is a dangerous yard. It is full of weeds, glass and all sorts of junk. Plus smells like poop. It's like a house on the show Hoarders. I had to be careful not to fall myself. He got under the porch and I can't get him.

    I'm just sick!!! I can't imagine what could have happened to him. I couldn't see any marks on him like he had been in a fight or anything. I'm wondering about ear mites or an ear infection because of the way he held his hed.

    Any way, the little guy could sure use some prayers right now. I could use a few too that I can somehow catch him and get him to a vet.

    I'm very concerned about what this poor little guy might have been through, from what you said it doesn't sound good. I kind of wonder if something in that yard injured him or made him sick. Please be assured that prayers are being prayed for both of you. As you can, please let us know how he's doing?

    I just went out to see if I could see him. I think he must have crawled under the house. There is one corner of the foundation that there is a big square hole. That's where they used to stay during storms when they were little.

    I was always afraid they would drink some putrid water or something over there when they were babies. I keep fresh water out all the time for them here but maybe he couldn't get to it or something. Then there are always snakes. I've seen shedded snake skins around in the spring.

    Prayers for this dear little baby and for you too, that you are able to get him to a vet and the vet will be able to help him get better.

    Is this Frankie's brother? Prayers that you can catch him this evening
    with food. Sounds like he has a ear infection.

    I believe the momma cat usually chases away the male kittens once they
    reach a certain age.

    Yes, he is Frankie's brother. I saw him under one of the porch steps at that house a bit ago. I went and bribed him out with food. I was able to get him, thinking I could put him in my shed for a bit and call the vet.

    Got to the shed door but when I opened it, he got so terrified he fought me and got away. I did notice as I watched him bound through the tall grass that he was running pretty darn fast for a sick kitty and he was not falling over, plus he was still holding his head to the side. I'm thinking it's an ear infection or ear mites. The last few nights have been down in the 50s with lots of dew making it cold and wet out.

    Now he probably won't trust me even to bring him food. sigh

    Liz, I did wonder about the mom cat chasing the males off too but she doesn't do that to the orangie. Since they are the same age, I'd think she would chase them both off.

    Well, I'll see if I can get some food in him tonight and see what tomorrow brings. I can't help a cat who refuses to let me.

    Well, the good news is I've managed to get food into him and he seems better today. He also can walk without falling over if he's careful. He still holds his head to the side but not as badly as he did yesterday and I saw him scrathing that ear this morning. I'm betting he has ear mites or and ear infection.

    He's back at the old house next door. The bad news is he won't let me come very close to him. I can put food down for him and he will come and eat only if I step back out of arms reach.

    Still keeping him fed and getting him strong is very important. Thank you for all the prayers and well wishes. Please keep them coming.

    Oh, that's good news that you are able to feed him again and he seems to be doing a little better now.

    Prayers are continuing on his and your behalf!

    I couldn't get him to eat more than a bite this evening. I followed him all around that yard, putting the plate in front of him or as close as I could get it then scooching it over with my cane. He would just take a lick then wobble off. Hopefully, I'll have something he likes better in the morning.

    This morning when I opened my back door to feed the outdoor babies, I got such a surprise. There sat the tuxie looking at me like, "where's breakfast?"

    I couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry so I fed them. He looks so much better. He ate like a moose. He threw it up though. I stayed out there with them and after a while he drank some water. I gave him a spoonful of wet food and he at it and kept it down. Later he had some more. He stayed in the yard quite a while.

    He still holds his head tilted to the left but not near like he was. He walks really good too unless he moves too fast then he wobbles. He walks like he feels better, with some pep in his step and waving his tail some.

    He even came back later for a snack. Of course, he got one. He is now laying in the sun in the grass at that house beside mine.

    I decided he needed a name. So I named him Mike and his bro is Ike. As in Ike and Mike candy.

    Here are a few pics I took of him this morning. Such a change from a kitty who could barely stand up two days ago. Thank you for the prayers. Please keep them coming. You see they are working!!!


    Here are two pics of his orangie bro: Ike who was sleeping up inside the bush by my back porch. Litterly off the ground in the bush.
