Just a quick update on how Garibaldi Rous is doing, which is surprisingly well! He is a resilient little capybara if he is anything! In the photo above, you can see that he went out for a walk around the house today. Now that Stacy Winnick has finally left, it seems we can rid ourselves of the Seattle weather that she brought with her. Today the sun was out and it got into the low 60s, perfect for Gari’s first serious venture outside since he lost his tooth. He didn’t spend too much time outside today but tomorrow will be even warmer and I am going to move his little wading pool back outside so I think he’ll enjoy that.
I don’t have photos of it, but you’ll be glad to know that Gari has even started eating corn-on-the-cob again! He also came up while I was watching TV and asked for treats. I fed him nearly a whole container of purple grapes before he decided it was time to go rest on the bed, his usual nightly routine.
It’s a big relief to see him acting normally again but this does not mean his situation has materially improved. We made it through the first hurdle but it is a long race with a lot of hard jumps ahead.
Thanks to everyone for their comments and for the donations to the ROUS Foundation and purchases from the store. It really helps to have you all pulling for us. These are hard times but y’all do make it a little easier.
