Happy Nomday!

Today Garibaldi Rous decided to wait until after he went swimming to finish his Swiss chard. Usually he eats it in the pool.

1100 of these little Super Capy plushes are about to descend upon our house. I wonder if I can get a photo of Garibaldi with just his nose sticking out of a pile of them!

Cats and capybaras can become friends although Flopsy seems a little uncertain about Garibaldi Rous in this photo.

It was cold this morning and 1.5-year-old Garibaldi Rous couldn’t decide if he wanted to go outside or not.

Today was a big day for 1.5-year-old Garibaldi Rous, it was his first time out in a public place. We took him with us when we had lunch at a Vietnamese restaurant near our house. He even got to meet some people and he did great. Okay, he was shaking the whole time but we are hoping that some short, low stress excursions will prepare him for his first school visit on Oct. 31st.

Continuing on the theme of capybaras with other animals, here is a shot of Garibaldi Rous sharing a bowl of lettuce with his rabbit co-pet Maple.

SHOPPING SPREE SQUEE: Who wants a Super Capy plush? We do! :D

This is the prototype for our new Super Capy plush toy. It should be available soon from our website. Even though Gari’s super power is rolling, the plush toy is standing up.
In case you’re interested, Garibaldi Rous’ littermate, Bob, is in the Big Apple Circus currently performing in Washington, D.C.

This is Garibaldi Rous with his two domestic rabbit co-pets Maple and Oakley. He also has some wild rabbit friends that live in and out of his yard. Gari sometimes chases the rabbits at night but it’s just a game, although I’m not sure they know that.

HAPPY CATURDAY!

1.5-year-old Garibaldi Rous got a chance to meet a kitten today. He was very curious but the kitten was scared. Capybara typically get along well with other animals.
