I hope you liked my first post. I’m kinda new at this blog stuff so it may take me a while to get the hang of it. Learning to skateboard was a lot easier than this. Of course I skateboard, but that’s another story.
Today I’d like to tell you what my day is like at In-Sync. At 7:00 AM I get a wake-up call and someone brings me breakfast sandwiches at 7:30. Only kidding. I eat at night. And not sandwiches. I usually eat 2 lbs. of ground meat. Like 8 Quarter-Pounders but no lettuce, pickles onions or sesame seed bun.
During the day I can really do whatever makes me happy. I can play, sleep or simply relax and watch all the goings-on around me. I can spend time in my den, on my den, outside my den, on the playground or IN MY POOL! It’s really up to me.
I go on the playground everyday while my buddy Rafiki is in his own enclosure and he goes to the playground when I’m in my enclosure. My playground is really big. It has our cool pool with the fountains but also a big platform (kind of like a picnic table) that I can climb up on, crawl under or simply use it as a resting place to soak up some rays. It also has big truck tires suspended from a big pole that I love to play with. I can spin the tires around or chew on them or stick my handsome head through them. All great fun. I have lots of other toys too. Some people call toys enrichment. I just call them toys. Way easier. I’ll show you some pictures of me and my toys. Well, they’re not exactly just mine. Rafiki plays with them too when it is his turn on the playground. The other cool thing is that when I am on the playground, I can always go back inside my enclosure if it rains (or hails) or it gets too hot in the sun. There is a roof over each enclosure at In-Sync to protect us from stuff like that.
So when it is time for Rafiki to use the playground, I have to come into my enclosure because we can’t be on the playground together. I love my playground so I sometimes try to stay there longer than I’m supposed to. It drives the staff and volunteers crazy when I won’t move back to my enclosure. It’s fun watching them trying so hard to get me to move. They know that I am only playing hard to get and that I’ll eventually move but I still love the game I play with them.
Each morning, my Mom Vicky comes to visit. You can hear her all over in-Sync. She is very loud when she calls “Hey, little boy, little boy” to let me know she’s on her way. Then we spend a little family time together, discuss some things and then she goes back to work running this place.
