The doctor suggested that I get a rabies shot -- just in case. The first of three shots I got today will prevent rabies, but won't help me if I am already infected. For that, I will need a series of different rabies shots.
The doctor said if the stray cat dies within the next six days -- then I will need to take these different rabies shots -- which cost $1500.00. So....I need to make sure the stray tomcat hangs around the compound so I can watch him.
Tonight -- I fed him for the first time. He looked at me -- suspiciously -- before he started chowing down. He cleaned the plate.
Just now, he's hanging out with one of the female cats -- she's doing a mating dancing for him -- lying on the tile patio -- turning herself around and around. He's sitting in the corner -- contentedly watching her.
Only five more days -- hang in there Stray Tom. Tomorrow, for breakfast, maybe some caviar?
