Yingy didn't appear this morning nor this evening. Of course, I came home rather late and was hoping he would be there so I could feed him.
I got a response to an email yesterday and don't want to bring Yingy to their facility. They're basically a non-kill shelter and there's the "but" portion that I don't like. If the animal is too sick, they euthanize them. If the animal cannot be socialized by their staff or volunteers, the animal will be euthanized. Some strays do not like being caged for a week or more and can't be socialized because of this. And lastly, when an animal is turned over to them, you cannot reclaim that animal if things don't work out. I will not put Yingy up for a risk like that.
I have a fear that he will not take to being caged as he is a wanderer. I may be wrong.
Also, I think Yingy has another home because he's never around when the weather is extremely bad i.e. too hot, too cold, rainy or snowy.
Somebody may be letting him stay in their garage or shed in a nice warm little bed they made for him. There are a lot of sheds and garages in my neighborhood. I hope it's true and he's not sleeping in the woods in a hollow tree around raccoons.
We'll I must go. I'll keep everyone updated. I hope to see him tomorrow or some time during the weekend. He knows he can always depend on me to give him a nice meal.
