New Best Friends
22nd Septmeber 2014
A few weeks later, the forestry department brought us another young langur which required surgery for a deep wound on her thigh. Nobody can tell us where she was found or how she sustained the injury, but by the way she is behaving, there is very little chance she was a wild monkey as seems at ease with staff and volunteers.
About two months ago, we adopted a kitten found in the Mapusa market. In order to get him used to human and animal contact, he spent quite some time together with Nissa in our bedroom. Bunty (one of our dogs) saw this as an opportunity to make a new friend and insisted in coming in the bedroom to play with the kitten. The way Nissa was looking at them, I could tell she was very envious of their beautiful interaction. Every day she got a little closer and started teasing them and running away. It didn't take long for them to become amazing friends. They can spend hours running after one another. Of course Nissa knows she has the great advantage of climbing up her hanging toys and is always using it to get out of reach.
After over a month of treatment, Blossom the dog, has had her hair slowly grow back and thankfully, she was adopted for the second time. Her new owner kindly accepted to continue the treatment until she is fully recovered.
