I haven't seen much of the ferals under my care in the past weeks. Mangey showed up last night, and much to my dismay, once again, he is showing signs of his mange on the backs of both ears, on the top of his head. It is not nearly as awful as it was, but his coat is dull and rough.
He looked at me in such a beseeching way. He got an entire can of cat food. It was a flat out bribe. I need him to come back because:
Fact: Mangey needs to be brought inside for the winter and given regular doses of medication to clear this up entirely.
Fact: Tim will be more than a little pissed about this fact.
I am already casting about for a large dog crate to keep him in while he's recuperating.
LATE UPDATE: Tim saw my facebook ad for large dog crate and seems resigned. I have a special supper for him.
LATER UPDATE: dog crate purchased. It is a big one.
