Jasper, he is a bit skinny here.
Anyhoo, have an interesting story about the Pacas to share. Especially to the pushy broads. I was going to save this for the weekend. It really isn't a fuzzy cute story and no crias are involved. Acutally, a bit icky if I do say so myself.
One of our Pacas, Jasper, was very ill this spring before we got him. His previous owner spent thousands on vet bills. They were worried he wouldn't make it, but his caretaker was told to give Jasper some spit from his father Artemus. ????? Anyway, they extracted spit from Artemus, shot it down Jasper's throat via syringe and he was much better very shortly.
Anyway, he has been doing okay and has put on a bit of weight but not enough. It was decided that Jasper needed another dose of Artemus spit, so it was collected last night.
Extracting spit into a cup involves holding the head and cup just right and someone on the other end messing around with shall we say, his reproductive organs.
Pisses em right off!!!
