Tackling Ear Mites with a Semi-Feral Cat

Today I'm on a mission to help one of our feral cats. Poor Boots, the senior of the group, has developed a horrid case of ear mites. Boots allows me to pet him and he'll roll to his back so I can pet his stomach. But will he hold still long enough to allow me to put drops in his ears? Though he seems to like human touch, I don't dare try to pick him up. I know that would spook him and give me some nasty scratches. Sooo, my best bet is to try and squirt some drops into his ears while he's eating.

Wish me luck!

Do you have a mission to accomplish? Feel free to share, or if you have a tip on how I can handle mine, I'd love to hear from you.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
