RJ joins the older babies.

A lot has happened lately! Unfortunately we lost one little guy. The little boy that came in with the older female died 2 days prior to his quarantine ending. It was very sad and a parvo test showed up negative so I had a necropsy done. It showed his liver to be the problem. The damage was probably done before he even made it into helping hands, poor little guy.
His adoptive sister who I have since named RJ (she looks just like Roxy did at this age, she is a Roxy Jr!) was beside herself over his disappearance. As soon as the autopsy showed nothing contagious as the cause of death, I brought her out to meet the big girls River, Baloo & Scootch.
Baloo was quite calm about it!
Scootch was less than thrilled as you can see!

And RJ was just like...what the heck!

But River as usual was thrilled to have another friend and it wasn't long before all 4 were playing up a storm together!
RJ loves the new climbing room!

A great big Hello from River!

RJ is still wary of me, but warming up to me more now that she's outside with the girls and sees that they interact with me and trust I'm the one that brings all that yummy food she loves so much!


  1. Thanks SO much for posting info on RJ! I'm so relieved and grateful that I brought her to you! The world is a better place because of people like you...
