Lauren Grant’s Coordinator Notes for 4/5/2018

What a day!

We were short handed with senior keepers today, but thankfully Aleesa, Kathryn, Karma, & MaryLou all helped out today to make sure we were still able to get cleaning and feeding done by lunch time! 🙂

Our picky cats were normal picky today, except for Arthur who ate like a champ (15Lbs)! We have to watch when feeding Cameron. He wants to take his turkey drum to the platform and leave it for the birds 😉

Cam and Zabu’s roofed section was cleaned up today. The outside of the enclosure was weed-eated, but still needs to be raked.

That was about it for the day!
