Im still not brave enough to touch him, I might loose a hand! though I am thinking of building him some form of shelter in the garden, a second hand rabbit hutch would do, since I have been feeding him on and off for a week or so, he has started looking less ecimated.
if he turns up tonight, I might add some cat biscuits to his feed, a bit cheaper, and will pad out his food. Poor old bully boy that he is, I will try to get a photo of this aging bruiser, he could be a decendant of Grebo.
Bless him and you for helping the ol' bruiser :thumbl: :thumbl: :thumbl:
It might be an idea to pop some worm meds in his food if you have some, as he might well be suffering from some unwanted passengers, the poor old thing.

Quite probably Grace, he looked last year like he lost a battle with a shovel, face on, he has healed from that, minus a few bald patches, and this year he appeared limping badly, and nine months on, he still limps, so i think he was injured on his shoulder, not the wrist/ankle on his right paw.
He is old, cranky, and looks like a night mare, but despite the bald patches, limp, and battered face and ears, Oh and not forgetting the bad attitude,....he is a big softie really. :wink: :thumbl:
He diddnt turn up for dinner tonight, so I am expecting him some time tomorrow.

What is it with skinks and the cat box???? I released yet another one from the dunes of clumping litter this afternoon. They must fall into it, because they sure can't climb out on their own. Are there yummy bugs in there??? :shock: I surely hope not! Ew.

Stinks coming out of the litter box I'm all too familiar with, especially when one of the mogs has had an upset tum, but what's a skink and why is it trying to nest in the poop tray?

Small lizard - extremely cute and normally something I would expect Phalarope to be separating from the cats teeth.

Perhaps a small ladder for them to use (as skinks are good climbers a ladder for them could just be a piece of rope or wood that reaches to the top of the container)?

Jack Cohen has a story about skinks
I'll tell you it next time we meet :)

I love England for this sort of thing: Mike the Magpie and his whippet Boo Radley :D
