A Capy Mother’s Song

Wild capybara mother with three babies

Tell us a story!

I left my mother when I was only seven days old. I know! Way too young. I don’t know why my mother’s people took me away from her, it just happened. But even so, I learned some things from her.

Sorry I’ve been gone so long, y’all. MelT’s been lazy.

Do you ever have that feeling that something bad is about to happen? I had that the other day. Strange things started appearing in our house. Things that seemed to have no purpose.
