Just checking in to say that we left Alicante this morning around 8:00 with our two darlings and began our journey to Madrid. The first half hour had us a little concerned as we thought the two of them were going to chew the transport apart and then come after us. The back seat was literally rocking and rolling. After a while, they settled down and slept the rest of the way to Madrid bellies up and arms and legs pointed to the sky.
We have just arrived home from leaving the cubs at their new center. There, waiting for us, was a famous wildlife American Veterinarian named Deborah McCauley who is currently building a Field Laboratory in Nepal. She lives here with her husband and sometimes visits this reserve. She has trained a very young vet named Irene who we talked with several times before we left Alicante. The Director of the center in Alicante, Raul Merida, recommended her to us. She works at this new center as well. So, she was waiting for us as well. I will give you more detail about the place and what goes on there when I can catch my breath. Its been such a long day! We would like to thank Dr McCauley for all her dedicated h
Both Vets, like me, are concerned about little Spain. He is way under weight and has been very poorly taken care of. They are going to run a number of tests tomorrow, including an xray on his back left right leg as they think he may have a poorly healed over fracture. Oh dear me. There is something wrong, but I am praying that these two amazing young women will make him right again. Please say your prayers. Most of the results will be back tomorrow as well.
CACH is doing well and is the sweetest thing ever. Looks after his little brother most attentively.
Veterinary expenses are already in excess of US$550. So please can we ask you to be generous with your donations and help us give the best care to these little cubs.
We would like to thank Dr McCauley and her staff for all their dedicated help with the cubs. Please take a look at http://www.viewildlife.org/ to see how much good work these wonderful people do.
