Not sure about the crate, she was always good in it when she was younger. I'll try it out tomorrow, see it she'd go into her crate now, and if she'd get aggressive about it. She tolerates her harness and leash. Muzzle...doubtful.

I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to rig up something to allow for someone to give Tribble food and water without having to go into her enclosure. A slide open that locks from the outside, or something.

You can get a calming drug from the vet to give her for the trip to the vet, long as she's seen him at least once already(they can't prescribe without having seen them). AsterGirl does this for Barret and it works great.

She's been to see her vet a few times, it's just been a LONG, LONG time since she's gone so i don;t think she'd be very manageable. The vet is a wildlife vet, though, so I'm sure she's used to unmanageable wild animals.

Think about training a fox sitter how to interact with her before you have to go out of town. There are some great professional pet sitters out there. Vet assistants or zoo keepers are usually the way to go. We pay ours a small fortune for twice-daily feedings, but the cats' well-being and our peace of mind are worth it.

I can never remember the name of that for some reason. It basically just calms him down rather than sedates him right?

The vet said she would give me something like xanax for Tribble when it's time for her annual check up. -_-

Here's a video of Tribble's new obsession...my neighbors just love me...

Haha, she loves that squeaker toy. I'm sure it drives the neighbors crazy if she's squeaking it day in, day out. It looks like she's adjusting very well to the outdoor enclosure. :)

So my mom got me a super cute purse with a fox on it...Tribble peed in it at some point today. I realized it as I was paying for some groceries at the store, the had to root around for coins. The unmistakable smell of.fox pee wafted into my nose.


On an unrelated note, here's Tribble NOT sharing her toys.

So...

There is a dead raccoon in my backyard, and it looks completely uninjured as far as I can tell. I'm freaking out that it died of a disease, and what if it got to Tribble?

Tribble doesn't seem to have any injuries, but her fur is so thick and she so wiggly, I can't get a complete inspection done.

I called Animal Control, Florida Fish and Wildlife, and my local Health Department. No one seems overly concerned about it cause the raccoon didn't for sure bite anything. :/

Could be distemper with a fairly high probability. Could be it got a bump on the head too. My neighbors dog got hit by a car and ran way down the street before falling down and seizing and dieing. There was really no visible injury but she got hit on the head.

I buried it, as my local animal removal guys wanted $230 to come and take it away.

I saw a bite wound on the raccoon's back leg, it looked very fresh. I think it was only dead a few hours at most, as when I had to move it to bury it, rigor mortis hadn't completely stiffened it(it was still stiff, but not quite fully into rigor mortis yet).

I really hope it was hit by a car, or something else like that. I don't know what I'd do if Tribble is sick, it would break me to watch another fox die from distemper, and I can't even think about rabies.

I doubt he got to her through the cage. You could bleach or burn the area where the body was found and look for any signs of raccoon scat or anything suspicious and sanitize it too.
