This time he didn't come around until much later, so that gave me some time to play with the camera. Managed to get one picture of the stars that was somewhat decent.
Once inside and full from his snacks, he settled right in for some serious cuddles and sleep!
I don't think the bonding time had the desired effect I was hoping for. Come Sunday night, Oliver once again disobeyed curfew, he was no where to be found. Dang! Now, I've taken to pulling all the feral food except for what's on the back porch. That way, if he wants to eat, he has to come in.
Meanwhile, have you met Marvin? He's my latest rescue. I got an email from someone that they had been seeing him come around for about a week. He was (is) super skinny. So, I went over a week ago last Friday and trapped him (you can read more about him here).
He's an older non-microchipped, neutered boy and thankfully he tested negative for FIV and FeLV (yah!) and appears generally healthy except for being way too thin and for having a mouth full of rotten teeth. The vet wiggled his right top canine and it was quite loose. Poor guy.
I LOVE his coloring, he's such a good looking boy and he seems to have a sweet temperament.
You can see his right upper canine sticks out more than the other.
Marvin will be going in for surgery this morning to have all of his remaining teeth extracted. He'll be feeling so much better when this is all done. He must be in so much pain with all those rotten teeth. I can't wait to get to know his personality when he's healed up and able to fully relax! Meanwhile, I'll be doing some research on lost cats to see if someone could be looking for him.
