Julius is now undergoing de-flea treatment in preparation for being taken indoors. This is a landmark event in his life. Soon he'll join his brother Jolson as a domesticated house cat in my neighbors' (Katie and Ellen's) house. He has been neutered and has his rabies vaccination.
And in two weeks Wonka is going to be trapped and neutered, vaccinated against rabies, cleaned of fleas, and brought inside. The sooner the better; recently his brother Slugworth was killed, possibly by a motor vehicle.
Three cheers for Katie and Ellen, and the Humane League, and the work they do.
