The Wildlife Care Center called yesterday. Someone found Wailey! Chris picked him up this morning... I went home on my lunch break to see him and got this picture. :) I think he lost a little weight - he's been gone a month in this neighborhood, eating god-knows-what. But he's healthy and feisty... He only let me take a few pictures before he ran off.
He’s in the shower stall for now, since we don’t know what to do about his enclosure. We still don’t think he GOT OUT on his own… But what happened? Did a neighborhood kid let him out? Someone else? Or did he get out? We don’t know. We gotta get that figured out, and in the meantime the poor guy is walking around on a tile floor, trampling all his hibiscus flowers and wondering where the heck his nice little cardboard-box den is (when he goes back to the enclosure, he’ll be in for a surprise: I replaced it with a nicer, Rubbermaid-style box while he was gone – I hope he likes it!).
But anyway, Wailey's back! I really honestly had given up on the idea we'd get him back, so this is awesome. I don't have to worry he's off being mistreated somewhere. What a happy, happy thing. :)
