Every time I post about Milo's progress with his fears he takes a giant leap backwards so I can only conclude that he is logging into this site and reading about it and is feeling self conscious. We've taken a giant step backwards with the stairs since my last post. He has to work this out for himself to gather his confidence.
On a completely different vein, we met up with a volunteer from RLRR to turn over some items which will go up to Red Lake and she had the opportunity to visit with Milo. She expressed her surprise at his age as she told me that most of the animals at Red Lake are only a year or two old since most have to fend for themselves and only make it through one or two winters. So very sad.
Milo may have been cared for at some point to last as long as he did on his own. We suspect he was between 5-6 years old when he was saved by the kind people helping RLRR.
Coming in from the outside - especially in the bitterly cold weather - has been an easy choice for him. No time to think about it with cold feet/paws!
