I hadn't seen him in about six months although I saw some tracks in the snow near my garbage cans a couple weeks back. I've been feeding him on and off for almost three years. Last year he showed with battle scars across his nose and also cut his nose trying to escape the trap. Still a handsome dude though. Thankfully on Monday he showed asking for food and I set a can in a trap. Minutes later his new life began. Neutered and vaccinated and no longer fending for himself in the bitter weather. He's not sure that he likes being in my house yet, still segregated from my other cats although I suspect Hobo has faced him at the screen door. They've encountered each other outdoors as Hobo sneaks out with the dogs. The long hoped for project of capture completed, the new project of becoming part of the family pack begun. A promising start for the New Year.
