Hi everyone! I have been very busy trying to get the scoop on Brody. He arrived in February 2016 which is way before I was born so I had to read some old blog posts and talk with Penny and Joanie, but I got all the details.
Before I tell you about Brody, I have to tell you about the scare Penny gave mom. Mom was rubbing her tummy, Penny’s tummy, not her own. And she felt a bump so mom was in a big panic worrying about a tumor. Then mom felt it again a while later and realized it was a tick. Dad brings them inside sometimes on accident. Dad has had lyme disease 3 times from their bites, they seem to really like him.
OK, now the scoop on Brody. Mom was helping an elderly lady trap some ferals in her yard to TNR back in February of 2016. The lady trapped him and when mom brought him to the shelter for get fixed, they told her he would be euthanized because he had an injury on his neck. The only way around this was to agree to keep him inside for several months. No way was mom going to let them kill him so she agreed to keep him inside. He had an ear infection so they tipped his right ear got tipped instead of the left. The wound on his neck started to swell a few days later so he had to have surgery to clean it up. He has a bald spot where that was.
At first, no one wanted to be his friend, so he was lonely until Trouble arrived in 2018. Now he has lots of friends. Mom wonders if he is a distant relative of our ferals because they came from the same yard 5 years later.
Brody had a girlfriend named Leia, she was another blogger. He even bought her a house ( OK, it was a cardboard log cabin scratcher). He was devastated when she went to The Rainbow Bridge and has not dated since.
Some of you did remember his previous name. If you didn’t , you can click here to find out.
Mom named him Brody because at the time my folks were watching a tv show, Homeland, with a character named Brody.
Brody is a cool cat. He never gives me any grief.
If anyone else has something they would like me to report on, just let me know in the comments.
