Guille Also Makes Time for a Scratch

Yesterday we posted a photo of Lady getting a good scratch from a tree after some time in the mud. It’s obvious today that no tree is safe when the rainy season is here. After a short but heavy storm, Guillermina seemingly couldn’t help herself – she had to brush the mud from all her nooks and crannies. She had some serious fun, making sure to get all of the important spots, especially her ears and trunk. And Bambi couldn’t let Guille be the total star of the show. She had to make a brief appearance to let everyone know how much she too enjoyed the rain. (Side note: Even though Guille still has a bit of weight to lose, you can see that she’s gaining muscle in her front legs from lots of walking through the habitat.)

P.S.  Save the Date!  November 29th is Giving Tuesday –  the day when millions of people worldwide unite to support the causes they care about. AND, it’s also Lady’s rescue anniversary!  So, this Giving Tuesday, celebrate Lady’s 3rd re-birthday by providing her the gift of good health (and happy feet)!

    I was just going to inquire about Guille’s weight issue and Lady’s feet. Do you know how much weight she has lost since her rescue? Praying her footsies are not bothering her too much!🙏🏻💗🙏🏻💖

      Guille is due to be weighed soon, so we should know more about that in the days to come.
      And Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!
