Great day today!!! It started cold, but it turned out really nice weather to work in!
Before lunch: A bunch of keepers took classes and got sign-offs. Food prep was done, double checked, and the cooler was cleaned. The Windsong hospital was vacuumed and mopped. Fred and I took out a bunch of enrichment out of the enclosures.
**After lunch: **All of the interns went to do tours with the help of a couple partners. Steph, Bonnie, and I worked on Ginger’s enclosure and a bunch of the raking around the outside and tour path got done.
**Projects to get done: **Ginger’s enclosure could use some grass seed and hay in the dens. Finish raking around the outside and tour path of her cage.
The squeeze cage on the left side can get put away, but the other still needs to be cleaned as well as the one still in the recovery hospital. That hospital needs a sweep and mop as well. We got an empty blue dumpster today, so the trees on the ground next to it can be thrown in.
I think that may be it?? – Afton Tasler

Really good day today, weather was good, most of the cats ate well. Had enough keepers and interns to get everything done. Got trees put into the blue dumpster thanks to Barbara Ann. Tanya put hay in Ginger’s dens and spread grass seed around and watered it. She was raking on the tour path but more still needs to be done.
