Life in the zoo

Leash boy

Posted by AnIGma, 01 August 2012 - - - - - - · 2,413 views

For the time being I've decided to keep a leash attached to Harry when he's not in his crate. My big challenge with him is getting him to poop outside on a leash. He's used to pooping in privacy while turned out in the back yard. I don't have a back yard so he needs to learn to do it on leash. If left to his own devices Harry will take off...

A little bit of progress

Posted by AnIGma, 27 July 2012 - - - - - - · 2,097 views

I can tell that things will progress slowly with Harry. He is very shy and untrusting. On the other hand he is docile and will do what he is shown to do. For instance I can manipulate him to sit on my lap, slowly but surely. But he gets really scared and cringes if I try bending towards him, to pick him up for instance.

When he is loose in the house,...

Last night we went to pick up Harry from the foster mom. I have decided to call him Harry after my late father. I always liked that name. It's not short for "Harold" contrary to popular belief.

Foster mom gave me two bags of stuff for him. Two bags of treats, coats, harnesses, toys, and numerous collars! Nice looking collars but only one...

Surgery Day

Posted by AnIGma, 23 July 2012 - - - - - - · 2,040 views

Today Gixxer had his neuter surgery. The rescue rep sent me an email at 5 am to remind me. You'd think it was her son having the operation! I thought it was cute anyway. She emailed me again after she picked him up. She said everything went well and he  also had his 3 year rabies shots. Apparently the only complication that might arrive is excessive...

Shopping for the new arrival

Posted by AnIGma, 19 July 2012 - - - - - - · 2,104 views

Today I took Fifi with me to Petsmart to pick up a few things for her new brother. I needed a crate and possibly a bed.

I bought a soft-sider canvas portable crate because I go to my partner's house to stay on weekends. This way I can easily take the crate back and forth. Apparently Gix is used to a wire crate, so I hope there won't be any...

My adoption application was approved! I'll be an IG ma starting next week!Posted Image

The adoption rep asked if I had any questions. I think I sent back about ten or so. I'm sure I'll think of more.

The zoo, front gate

Posted by AnIGma, 17 July 2012 - - - - - - · 2,001 views

Maybe I should have written "the insane asylum, front gate". I keep a fair number of pets and I might as well introduce them before I go on to talk about the new rescue IG. Currently only one of my references stands between me and IGdom (IG owvnership). The rescue rep is waiting to hear from my last ref, but the other reviews from references were...
