This incredible lad (I'm thinking he's male) came onto our patio last night about feeding time! We don't get many strays at all, and, fortunately, most cats in this area are well cared for. He is covered in mats, is thin and weak, and has a respiratory infection. He went into a trap, but didn't freak out. Bless him, he has known humans. He let me caress his head just now, but is wary. Goodness knows what he's been through. It takes months for mats to get this bad. I couldn't get an appt. with the groomer till next Friday, but he sees Dr. Han Monday. That will give him a couple of days in which to de-compress and gain strength.
He's getting flower essences for trauma relief and lots of good food. Send him some love!
