Talking about friends, Nissa was introduced to Dixie, who is being very tender, acting as a protective older sister, telling the dogs off when her friend get scared. Nissa is slowly being introduced to the young langur troupe. Ella is always very excited to see Nissa, but for now, she is being too brutal to let them play together. However, Foster, of a more timid character, has opened up his heart to Nissa, giving her nice long cuddle.

Blossom the Alsatian dog which was re-homed early June was brought back to us with as little hair as the first time she arrived at the Tree House.

The main concern with Blossom is that our monkeys are frighten of her.
