Guillermina has been increasing the amount of time she’s spending inside her transport crate. At the moment, the two crates are still facing each other with a small connecting area. Guillermina prefers to walk in first – and backward – into the furthest crate. Shortly thereafter, Pocha will walk forward into the nearest crate, meaning they are facing each other. Before Guillermina began going all the way into the crates, Pocha seemed to prefer the crate farthest away – but we are letting the two of them dictate who goes into which crate, and in what order.
Both ladies are still doing well. The crates remain open, so they can come and go as they please. At the moment, they tend to hang out in the open space between the two crates. Ingo and Trish spend time with them there, sharing some snacks through the fence and having gentle conversations. The goal is to make sure everyone is comfortable and relaxed while staying in one spot. Their progress remains steady and our priority is to maintain a positive environment as we move closer to their eventual transport date.
