Update April 19/17. Today I trapped Boots, and took him to the vet to be neutered and vaccinated. I was very surprised to find out he is a BOY (good thing I gave him a neutral name!) which was good for him as he was only at the vet for a couple of hours. When we let him out of the kennel he was all over the little room. The Vet had to inject him up on the window sill to put him to sleep. Boots appears to be around 8 or 9 years old. The Vet said he might calm down and be more friendly now that he’s neutered.
March: Now that the weather is improving, Boots is wandering around more.
May: The b/w photos are from the wildlife camera inside the quonset. Notice the skunk!!
August: Boots is getting much braver with Waldy as he gives him lots of treats. One day soon, maybe Waldy will get to pet him.
Boots is still with us but still afraid of humans. I often see him wandering around the house and once he came over to the ‘cat run’ to check out Moxie and ET. Moxie wasn’t too pleased! I managed to get Boots to trust me feeding him every evening when Waldy was away – he doesn’t run away from me now.
These photos of Boots were taken with our wildlife camera and telescope. I have photos up to date but they are all basically the same I’ll not add any more.
