カピバラの本

Don't you think the capybara should be in the front?

カピバラは前に出るべきだと思わない?

僕の本がでたよ!まあ僕だけというわけではないけど、カピバラについて(そして猫も・・・でもカピバラのほうがずっとかわいいね)。僕の飼い主が書いたんだけど、すばらしい本だよ。この セレストとでっかいネズミ は Amazon で買えるんだ!僕のことを「でっかいネズミ」とよぶなんて、ちょっとむかつくけど、なんとなく雰囲気はわかるよね。ビル・ピートの書いた Capyboppy 以来、カピバラが主人公の本はこれだけなので、まあ文句は言えないよね。読んで感想をきかせてよ。僕の飼い主は僕を正当に評価してくれてるかな?

注文するには左の本の表紙をクリックするとamazon.com page にいけるよ。外国に住んでいる人は、infibeam.com の方がいいかな。

もし僕のサインが欲しいようなら、「contact」ボタンを押してあなたの住所をおしえてね。僕の足あととサインいりのシールを送ります。欲しければ、飼い主のサインもあげられます。

Moscow Zoo Capys

Here’s a shout-out to my cousins at the Moscow Zoo! My friend Alex went there with Lina last weekend and took these photos. Notice that Lina has a stuffed capybara toy! Isn’t that cute? And look how great my cousins look. (Although I have to say I am glad I do not live in such a cold climate.)

I'm pretty sure the stuffed capybara does not approve of Lina's food choice.

Capybaras at the Kansas City Zoo!

Starting this weekend Kansas City residents have their own capybara!

If you visit the zoo and see the ‘bara(s), give us an eye-witness report.

Book About Capys!

If you’ve always wanted to read a book about capybaras, I have great news for you! My owner wrote a book about me…sort of. It’s actually about three cats who try to capture a capybara that has gotten loose in their neighborhood. The lead cat’s name is Celeste so I didn’t even get top billing. And the capybara is actually name Caplynn and is a girl, so I’m not all that happy about that. But it is a book about capybaras and it is loosely based on me, there aren’t many capybaras who can even say that much. Continue reading “Book About Capys!” »

Serendipity

For capybaras life is a series of lucky or unlucky events beyond our control. Does the anaconda eat my friend or eat me? That is true even for a pet capybara such as myself. When my owner leaves for work in the morning, how do I know she’ll come back? One time days passed, lots of days, and she never returned. When I had given up all hope, she came waltzing through the gate, gave me a hug and pretended nothing had happened. The next morning she went to work again while I eeped at the very top of my lungs.

I feel helplessly out of control most of the time which is why I am so happy that I (virtually) met Jeff VanderMeer. I was the one who tweeted him. I was the one who became his FaceBook friend. I had my owner take a birthday photo of me for his friend Tessa. I was the one who looked adorably cute in a birthday hat and lei. And I suggested Jeff read my owner’s book about me, Celeste and the Giant Hamster.

So I am taking all the credit for the nice review Jeff wrote of the book on his Amazon blog. Thank you Jeff for finally giving this little capybara some empowerment.

Now I am going to try to control the flavor of yogurt that comes out of the refrigerator each day. Blueberry. I want blueberry…
