Maybe at night when it's cooler out you can set it up in stages? If the skeeters will let you of course. scratch

So far the mozzies haven't been a problem. I'm just going to let slide until Sept.

Just thought I would give you an update on the Rodent Patrol. GW and Sport are doing fine. My off and on visitor has become more regular. He's known as Scurffy, while he's not as scruffy was he once was he still pretty thin. I'm going to try to trap him this week. There were two young adults with him at one point but I haven't seen them in about two weeks. My neighbor down the street got her off and on visitor.

Good luck with the capture. I hope he cooperates. I'm betting he needs a worming, and he'll start to fatten up.

Here, the tiny colony on the corner has 2 kittens who are starting to look big. There were more earlier in the summer, but we all know how that goes with ferals. The two lucky ones are sleek and have that awkward teenager look now. They seem to be packing on the pounds for winter.

I know I need all the good trapping vibes. I also need to contact my transporter to find out a good day to do it.

The rest of the Patrol is doing fine.

Glad to hear the rest of the rodent patrol is doing well despite the nasty weather I was really worried when the hurricane hit. I hope you can catch Scruffy easily and his big boy surgery goes well enough.

Any plans by anyone to trap those two teenager kittens? They need 'fixing' if they aren't already so the feral population isn't added to. Are they friendly at all?

We didn't catch anything from Harvey. I hope so too right now he's taking his ease on the back porch. I let him have the rest of Antonio's dinner. Antonio ate a few bites and then snubbed it. I'm getting ready to contact my transporter to see when she's available.

As for the teenagers I haven't seen them in two weeks if not more.

The teenager kitties in our colony have been hiding too. I think they're prepping nests for winter.

Scruffy is back. He's on the back porch and I will release him the morning. I like to give them overnight to recover. I saw the young adult/mature kitten. All I can say is that I hope he's two pounds. He seemed pretty thin and his ears were huge in relation to his body.

Congratulations, Scruffy! I'm glad you're home and doing well.

As to the kitten... Aww. I hope he can fatten up some and grow. Big ears are usually an immature kitten thing.

I am so glad Scruffy's been seen to and is doing well. And kittens............awwwww. They're cute even when they're at that huge ear-gangly legs age.

Well after disappearing for almost a week, Scruffy made a reappearance. He didn't look as bone thin as he has in the past.

He's finally decided you're not so bad after all despite the trip to the vet. Glad he's back.

He showed for dinner. He started to leave when I set the food out but may have changed his mind when I shook the bowl and set it down.

Scruffy is becoming more of regular and he brought a friend the one of the older kittens. I haven't seen the other in weeks. Also saw I think a tuxie that I haven't seen before. I've named him Whiskey Tango Foxtrot(WTF).
