AG,Tux don't usually come in the morning,but today,like every day I looked out from my livingroom window and there he was.
I thought"OMG he's dead!!",his head was at a strange angle,but he was sleeping.
I grabbed a can of food and he did not wake up until I was right by him.
As I put the food in his dish,he came to me,before I even got all the food down.
I could have touched him.since he was right by my hand,but I did not,he shies away if I raise my hand,,
He makes strange noises when he eats,probably has to do with his jaw:sadr maybe it was a weird purr
Later hubby went out with some treats in his hand and he was excited as Tux came towards him,but not too close

Oh, it sounds like he's starting to work his courage up. Do you think he might be hanging out around your place more and you just don't see him?

I've seen this video of a kitty eating, and the little guy is making this sort of growl/purr sound. Maybe that's the same thing Tux is making.

chico, it's so good he is starting to trust you so much. It's possible if he keeps up at that pace you won't need the trap. You may be able to just put him in a carrier. That would be perfect!! Is there a spot you could put a spare carrier near where he eats so it's handy if you can get him? Under the trees or even near his nifty house maybe? You wouldn't feel guilty about a carrier like you would a trap, right?
I bet with this rain we are having you don't have the trap set today, right? I wouldn't either. I'm hoping Tux uses his new house too. It will keep him nice and cozy today.
Keep up the great work m/f!! Everything is possible. You saw the way Jupiter is now and I never thought that would work!!!

Chico that is good news about Tux. It would be really great if you just put in some food into the carrier and snap it closed while he was eating.

Sending some that he is trapped soon and off to get neutered.



Chris:

No doubt, no doubt what so ever that 14+ has something worked out already.

What a face he has! I could totally love up a kitty like him. I'm hoping that he cooperates and all is well. Sounds like he's coming around though, I'm sure it's just a matter of time. that he gives just a wee bit more... You guys are angels.

I don't know about that,but I'll certainly try,very slowly
I've been feeding him for a while now and talked to him,so you'd think he would not be scared anymore,but who knows what he's been through:sad:

I remember one day last winter,I was walking Bailey and I heard this awful cry from a cat,then I saw him,it must have been just about that time he got hurt somehow,he ran away when he saw us at that time.
Then he started coming here and I've been feeding him since.
14+,how did it go at the vet for your little guys??

I am going to try with the carrier tomorrow

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Tux cooperates soon.
I didn't get a chance to talk to my vet today. Her partner was there instead. I have to take Meowzer in for a recheck in another week or so and TT will be going too. I will make sure it is with my vet and see what she has to say. I showed his pics to the vet tech today. She said she couldn't see any reason why she wouldn't fix him. If there is a problem then we head to TO. Easy peasy.

I noticed it is a beautiful autumn day in Oakville (the kind of weather cats really enjoy being out and about in). I know it is such a worry though. that he shows up soon.

I would not say it's a beautiful day,but it's not raining +10C,or snowing,so it's ok.
He is actually waiting right now to cross the street,he's sitting there watching the cars go by.
Looks from side to side until he sees a chance to run,it's really nerve-wreckingbut at least he's come back..
He made it! I live on a very busy street,especially this time of the day and he always makes it,so far.

He continues to make it until you can get hold of him.

Have u tried sitting down to talk to him? Maybe he wouldn't be so scared if u were sitting and making yourself smaller?

I hope he goes into the trap soon. Every time I read about that road and your watching him, I get chest pains and find myself holding my breath. I can't imagine what u are like watching him.

TQ,I always sit down and talk to him softly,after he's eaten,he goes in to his house,where I put a little dish with treats,but he does not stay there.

I have not had the trap out yet,today it has been pouring rain and as soon as I am able to catch him,I have to drive him to 14+,our kitty-whisperer and hopefully he can get neutered.
After,he'll either come back here or stay at 14+(which she so very kindly offered),we'll see how he is,but first he has to be caught
However she is busy worrying about little Timmy right now,so I won't add another worry.
Once again,here I am waiting for Tux,it is nerve-wrecking for sure:sad:

Chico, please don't hold off on Tux till TT is better. I can't get him back into the vet until Mon or Tues for a recheck. I am setting up the crate tomorrow after work so any time. The sooner we get Tux the better.
He is trusting you enough to go into his house? That is marvelous!! Maybe if you set a carrier beside the house with treats he will go in and you can close the door quickly. Let him go in and out of it a few times first though so he doesn't suspect anything. It sounds like he is trusting you more and more. That is so great!
You are such a sweet lady to care so much for this little guy. I'm sure you will get him soon and then we can move forward with his neutering.

Thank's 14+,I'll do my best..He obviously does not like rain(who does!),must be hunkered down somewhere.
OMG can that kitty eat,there is a new spring in his step As I watched him walk away yesterday he was spraying the neighbors car..
Halloween is not a good time for stray kitties,wish he would stay in his house tonight.

Halloween might work in your favour.... KMK stuck to me like glue last halloween as I was handing out candy outside, he seemed pretty freaked by all the people and was hiding just around the corner from me (and I caught him just a day or two later). So maybe if hubby hands out candy, you could sit in the back with Tux....I imagine he'll try to find a quiet spot as his usual spot across the street will probably be crawling with trick or treaters! Ya never know...you might be able to nab him tonight!

KR,your idea is not going to work,he comes earlier than that,I just saw him crossing the street from the Townhouses and now he has to cross my street.
I'll be putting the trap,or the carrier out tomorrow afternoon when we get back home,he has only been here 2 mornings.

chico - the crate is set up for him with lots of straw to curl up in to stay warm. I just need to get a litter box in it and it's set. Now Tux just needs to cooperate with you.

14+,I think I have a couple of litter-boxes in the shed,I'll bring one and some other things,when I finally catch him.
He just finished his dinner,I was busy in the kitchen,but he gave me a thank-you smile and off he went again,towards the street.

Rainbow,I like my neighbors,it was their visitors the cat-breeders,I did not like,but they are long gone.Thank Dog
