    Yes, thankfully the brats, um children are in school. Too bad they can't take their big dog with them.

    Mike showed up last night but wouldn't come near me. He hid under the lilac bush and wouldn't even look at the plate of food I pushed under for him. I tossed some cooked chicken breast under there too. He ignored it. He was under so far, I couldn't reach him.

    He hasn't been here this morning. I checked the lilac bush and the bushes all around and there is no sign of him. I just have a bad feeling about this. He hasn't eaten since Sunday Morning. That was the last time he ate well. Unless he is eating some where else. I don't think he is doing that though. He just looks like he doesn't care any more. I can't explain it.

    Darn. I was thinking by your description of his actions that he was
    probably sick with something. The stress of living outside doesn't help
    either. Have you seen his mother cat around there lately?

    Yes, his mom is here usually twice a day. She hisses at him every time she sees him.

    I hope if you see him again you can throw a towel or blanket over him and get him into a carrier to take to the vet.

    Heartfelt prayers for you and for little Mike.

    Prayers for little Mike, that he is safe and will come around as he did before and that you can get him in to see the vet... and that he can finally get a real HOME.

    And prayers for you too, for all you do for all these lost little critters. God bless you all.

    Poor little guy! It seemed like he was starting to trust you a bit. I'm hoping the brats and their dogs haven't done anything to injure or scare him.

    There has been no sign of him all day. I went out and called for him several times and checked under all the bushes and under my old car.

    There were skunks out and about last night. I smelled them. Maybe they chased him off.

    update

    Mike came home last night but was so weak, he fell over when I touched him.
    I called the vet's cell number hoping she could come get him. I was thinking it would be best to put him down. The office was closed so she said put him in a carrier on the porch for the night and see how he is today.

    He finally let me pick him up. He was so weak what else could he do? I picked him up with one hand. He is almost 7 mo old.
    I put a huge fluffy towel in with him and covered the carrier with a dish towel so two sides were covered. It was below freezing here last night. I put him in the corner of the porch where the wind wouldn't hit him. When I went to check on him at 1:30 in the morning I thought sure he was gone. He was just sleeping.

    He ate really good today twice. The vet said they could come and get him and take him in to see if he can be helped. They don't open until 1pm on Thursdays. I called the vet and she has a new recptionist so she won't do anything until she checks it out with the vet. So I am waiting on her to return my call.

    Meanwhile poor Mike has been in that carrier since almost 6 last night. He's not drank any water even though I have offered it or gone to the bathroom that I know of.

    I sure hope they can and will help him.

    Please pray for us.

    Note: he is on his way!!! The vet tech just picked him up.

    Oh thank goodness! Mike knew to come to you...bless you!

    Prayers that he can be helped. He may have an infection that has been untreated and made him really sick.

    If he can be saved, I hope they can find a home for him.

    Many PT Prayers!!!

    You guessed it Catty!!! The vet just called. He's going to be fine. It was that ear infection that made him walk wonky and feel so bad. He had been out fighting with the other males. He is 7 mo old come Nov 1st.
    He is dehydrated too and weak from not eating like he should.

    She suggested having him neutered while she has him there and get his shots too. He will have to take an antibiotic for 10 days so he could take that before he would come home from getting neutered. She does surgeries on Tuesdays and lets them come home on wednesdays. So just having it all done at once will be best for him.

    I wouldn't have to worry about him not showing up for his meds and he would be fixed so he wouldn't get into more fights. She thinks that's what happened to his ear. He 'came into his own' as she put it. Plus he will be lots stronger by keeping him there until he is all better.

    She said he is a real love bug. Maybe he will turn on the charm and someone there will want to adopt him. Wouldn't that be grand?

    Please keep the prayers coming. I am such a worry wart.

    Oh, what a great turnaround on Mike's story, MoFF! Thanks so much to you and the vet, and to Mike himself too for his spirit to hang on.

    Prayers and loving energies and warm thoughts and good wishes are coming your way.

    Oh, I am so relieved to hear some good news on Mike. I really was
    almost afraid to ask about him. Great news that you got him in to see
    the Vet. and that he can be helped.

    A little stay where he will re-coop & grow stronger and be safe while
    doing it is terrific news. Could you pm me your adress so I can
    send something to help pay the Vet?
