Update on Stray Kitty

Mama Rhonda here, first I want to thank you for your advice & caring words. I just can't tell you how much they mean to me. Second, Stray Kitty a/k/a Smokey Joe is in the house. We actually had a nice day here, so I sat outside with him while he ate. I took the flea comb out so I could make sure he didn't have fleas. I combed him while he ate & he just purred so loud! Good news, no fleas!! He let me pick him up & love all over him & even comb his belly. That's when I noticed he was a he...hence Smokey Joe.

I have him shut in the bathroom right now...he's not too thrilled with that & neither are the other cats. I held open the door after he ate & he just walked right in. I knew Sammy would be nice, he never growls or hisses. Fes wasn't as bad as I figured he would be, but there was a bit of hissing & growling from him. Smokey Joe was actually worse than Festus! The biggest surprise though was Emma, she is the worst about all that. She still hisses & growls at Fes if he gets too close to her. She never made a sound, they just sniffed each other & that was it! I was more worried about stressing her & she just takes it all in stride.

I have to call a new vet Monday as our vet passed away last week. I'm going to see if he will scan Smokey Joe for a microchip & examine him if I can make payments. I would appreciate all the help I could get as I'm not sure when I will start my job & I'll get paid once a month when I do. Thank you all so much, I just couldn't stand the thought of him being outside with no way to defend himself.

Thanks so much for helping this guy. Outside alone is no place for a cat. That is so sad he's declawed. He must be so happy you helped him.
