Capyfest 2009!

My birthday bash is July 11!

My birthday is coming up! I am going to be two on July 10th.

I will have a public party on Saturday, July 11th from 10 – noon at Garrison Park on Manchaca Rd. in South Austin. Look around and you’ll find us. I’ll be the only capybara there. Here is a link to a map.

As part of the celebration, my owner and I are donating $5 to the San Antonio Zoo for each copy of Celeste and the Giant Hamster sold during my birthday week (July 5-11).  The money will be used to “adopt” one or more of their three capybaras. If you buy the book, please send me a photo of you reading it and wearing a birthday hat or eating cake or with some other symbol of a birthday celebration. I’ll post the photos here and next to the book on amazon.com.

At the party you will be able to:

  • Get your photo taken with Caplin
  • Get your pet’s photo taken with Caplin
  • Share Caplin’s birthday cake
  • Get your copy of Celeste and the Giant Hamster signed by Caplin

Thanks! And Happy Birthday to Me!

    happy 2nd birthday Caplin! I hope you get lots of treats.

    you capybaras really dont mind dealing with all the strangers at a event like that??

  • Caplin, I just posted you on my website, by the way. Hope you don’t mind! I’m a brand-new fan, and I found you courtesy Neatorama! I think you’re the COOLEST! &=)

    If we can’t make it to the party (I live in Alabama), is there ANY way we can still get a Caplin-autographed book?

    Our only Cappys are in the local Birmingham Zoo, which always makes me sad. But, when I see your relatives, I always take pictures and say hello! Now, I can tell them about you!

    Hope you have a happy fourth and an excellent birthday! Happy birthday, Caplin!!!!

  • I have already seen it somethere…

    Hi Caplin, we met you last week while we were at the pool. I liked feeding you the cherries! I am excited to get to go to your birthday party. See you then!

  • For those of us who already have the book, can we donate $5 to you for the capys at the zoo? We’d love to do that! Just let us know.
    Purrrrrrrrrs,
    Sanjee and the rest of @HotMBC and Mommy (robynharton on FB)

    If you already have a copy of the book and just want to donate to the San Antonio Zoo capybaras, I have not set up an official way to do that. You can contact the zoo directly, or donate to your local zoo’s capybaras. Or you can send me an email using the contact button on the left side bar. Of course, you could buy another copy of the book and give it to a friend.

    Otto: Generally Caplin is a very calm capybara. He loves meeting new people, especially when we’re out around town. At home he get a little territorial but when we’re out he doesn’t have those problems.

    If you want a signature pawprint for your copy of the book, contact me and provide your address and anything you want printed on it and I will mail a sticker to you.

  • I was told having a pet makes you live longer, thank you my cat.
