Today we had our first outdoor excursion since the rescue. Happy was very into it, and contentedly ate his way through delicious greens. Sleepy however, was very scared and immediately went into ‘burrow’ mode. He spent his time outside under the greenery. We took the top off the cage and placed it over them just in case they decided to run but that wasn’t a worry.
I’m still worried about Sleepy. He hasn’t gained any weight in the last couple days, but he hasn’t lost anything so he’s holding his own. But Happy gained 2/8 of an ounce in a day! That’s really great and I’m getting more confident about his eventual release back into the woods (away from Patches!)
