At this point I still have to go searching. It is the chance that there could be traps and I just won't be satisfied until I know for sure. Looking
at some trapped kitty pics, you really can't tell. Some have their whole paw cut off and some have just the tip...I guess it just depends on what size
of trap and how much of the paw got caught in it.
Looking at snapper wound pics...It is the same really. Just gotta know for sure. I can't do anything if it was another animal...but if it was an old
trap or something man made, I can do something and I should try. Nothing but a nice walk around my property anyways..with a metal detector..and some
really tall, tough, rubber boots (I don't like snakes..lol)
If I find anything, I will update..but it will take a week or so to get the metal detector. So it won't be for a few weeks.
I was actually was really upset when I came home from the vets (thus the rant) and she had said it was a trap (might have been better if she hadn't
said that initially) mostly because everything is posted. But people are right..I can't get upset until I know for sure what got him. It could be a
trap that was left years ago, or a turtle (we have a small river running through our property so that is a possibility). But I still have to look. If
it is a trap and I just don't check and one of my other animals gets hurt... it is just worth it for me.
As I said above...once I get the metal detector and if I find anything..I'll update.
Patroclus is doing fine..still hates his cone...and mostly slept since he got home. It is funny because his "meows" sound like "nooos". So if you ask
him if he feels better ..he meows "nooo". If you ask him if he likes his cone, he meows "noooo". But he is enjoying being pampered a bit I think.
Thanks everyone for your concerns and thoughts.
