Coordinator Report - Erin Carden
It was a great Wednesday! Pretty hot out from the get-go, but cloud coverage helped us out.
Interns Lexi, Erin A, Elizabeth, and Kate were able to get feeding sign-offs in the morning thanks to Dylan and Fred. Erin A, Elizabeth, Lexi, and Fred worked on the empty cage by Keisha this morning while Gina rocked out food prep. Marie, Sue, and Mary Lou gave out cicles in the afternoon heat.
It rained for a bit in the afternoon so some of our annual appeal letters were addressed thanks to the interns. After the rain the cage by Keisha was worked on again, it’s almost finished and ready for Kali to move in!
I took Dylan, Kate, Lexi, and Elisabeth to get operant and enrichment sign-offs.
Thanks to our interns especially for working so hard in the heat today!

Sample Keeper Moments Video – KEEPER MOMENT – Breezy Bobcat is loving being groomed by Karma. Some of our cats have trouble grooming themselves, either because they were declawed at some time in the past, or they are older and have arthritis. Though we never touch the cats, using a scratcher that extends like this allows us to help them keep mats away.
