It's Mr. Jones to you

Tom Jones is such a sweety. He must have been someones kitty before hand. He'll let you pick him up.
Also, he doesn't completely freak when we rap him up in a towel so that we can medicate his ears and eyes.
Oh, while at the vet, they did blood work on him, and discovered he has FIV (Kitty AIDS), so we won't really be able to let him back out into the wild or hang out with our kitties. Bummer.

Tom Jones is in the house

Martha managed to catch Tom Jones yesterday and took him to the vet to get checked out.
Three hundred and eleven dollars later, his wounds were clean, he is now neutered and on three medications. Eye goop, ear drops, and an oral antibiotic.

He's really friendly though, and seems to be coming around to this indoor thing (which is better than single digit weather).

And he uses the cat box. YEA!

A stray cat

Over the last week or two, there has been a cat that has been staring in the backdoor of the house.

From the first, he would not run away when we approached the door.

He's been in a fight recently, and has a wound behind his ear. It also looks like he's favoring his right front paw, so we would like to take him to the Vet to get checked out.

In the last couple of days, he's come inside the backdoor to eat his breakfast (yes, we started feeding him in the mornings, then he's off for his daily round). So, hopefully, we will be able to get him in a cat carrier and take him to the vet for his injuries and shots and stuff.

So far not too concerned about feline AIDS or leukemia, as one is transmitted by snot and the other by blood, so his food and water bowls are kept outside, away from our inside kitties.
