Ted is doing better but has some healing to do yet. The pictures show him resting, eating, and with his bowl. He completed his antibacterial prescription on Sunday but will get meals through Thanksgiving. We will then be watching as he presumably will settle into hibernation as in the past. We’ll see what happens in this year of surgery. A couple days ago, Sharon gave him more straw that he busily arranged.
Yesterday at the WRI, the fox ate four mice that had come inside during the cold spell. Also, Donna and I had an early turkey dinner with leftovers saved for him. Today, his first choice was the turkey neck. He came back two more times and cleaned up his "plate" each time. Well, not quite. On his last visit he said it was time for dessert and chose four tiny blueberry muffins over a slice of bologna that is still there.
Thank you for all you do.
