We got up yesterday, had our coffee and then slowly started packing up to head home.
The biggest problem was getting the kitties back in their carriers for travel. Our two wild ones never would let us catch them, so they rode home “loose.” They have to get in their cages in order for us to transport them to the house and they are afraid now, knowing something is going on. They still don’t realize we won’t hurt them. We have a live animal trap which we set with a can of food as bait….I think they will spend the night in the motorhome and will get real hungry if they don’t “take the bait.” The little buggers.
We saw our injured Cormorant before we left again. He still had a problem with his wing, but it looked a little better. He was swimming around near shore. I read that they eat crustaceans and there were plenty of little crabs along the shore for him to eat. Someone from the fish and wild life department told Lynn that sometimes they injure a wing and then favor it a while until it heals. I certainly hope this is the case here. We feel sure he will be able to eat. We’ve seen them dive 30 feet straight to the bottom of the water in pursuit of a fish, so I think he should be able to dive for fish also, as they don’t just their wings when diving.
Follow up note…
It is now Wednesday morning. We set the live animal trap for the kitties. The food/bait is gone, the door sprung shut and there are still two kitties in the motorhome! Now they are REALLY afraid!
I guess we’ll have to go to plan “B”, I just wish I knew what it was!
