Thanks for the information StirBlue.
I have to worry about one extra thing here that I did not have to worry about in California--heartworm. At least by the time I moved here, California did not have heartworms.
Well, the first time I took Little Guy out to go potty he came back in willingly (jumped in ahead of me, in fact). The second time, just awhile ago, he didn't want to come back in. I hated to leave him out there, but he was insistent, and since he really isn't mine, and because he had already started to chew on things and I need to go to bed, I went ahead and let him go. I will see if he will come in tomorrow. I think he has gotten more rest in here, which is good for healing. Our pregnant cat was in hiding the whole time he was in here, so I'm sure she is glad he is gone! She doesn't like Cubbie either, but she can manuever around him. Well, it is 5:15 a.m. I guess I should get to bed!
