Here is Snickers eating from his syringe feeder and in his house... he still sleeps in his basket with the tee-shirt. Isn't he just the cute-est thing you've ever seen?
Before feedings, while I'm getting his dinner ready, Snickers is put into a playpen ...covered and secured to keep the cats from getting in to play with him... instead the cats and dogs sit around watching through the mesh as Snickers plays. Snickers doesn't even notice them being around, he is toooooo busy playing! This is the only contact any of them have together... once back in the wild, cats and dogs can be dangerous!!!! We do not want Snickers to think these guys here are his friends.
Right after feedings he is put back into his house... he has this path that he follows, I think he is checking "his place" out to make sure everything is still there, then he is off to his basket, curls up into a lil' ball and falls asleep. Yesterday, right after feeding, I didn't put Snickers back into his house right away... that is because when he was done eating, he crawled up my shirt to get to my hair... this time, he noticed a "pocket!" and in he crawled... rolled himself into a ball, and fell asleep! This worked out perfect! Gave me some extra time to clean up his house before putting him back in so he could sleep in his basket.
