Boris


Boris really has his appetite now! Whew am I glad!

He finished his breakfast already.
I wasn’t sure if he was knocking his dry food out with his tail until I discovered the plate empty and no mess on his shelf.
Little Lady loved her dry food also. I had to order some from the UK because we could no longer get it here in Sweden. It’s a lovely Fruit and Flowers blend. It arrived after she had passed so it was just sitting there.
I’m so glad Boris likes it.

Boris Update!


Our newest member of our Gullringstorp family, Boris is doing just fine.
He seems to be enjoying his new home. He watches the cats and our little Max through the plexy glass on his enclosure. He can be found on every shelf and resting area provided him. He has finally found his heated shelf and seems to enjoy it. He hasn’t started to eat yet but I offer him a nice bowl of delicious chopped veggies: kale, carrots, zucchini and apple. If the plate is untouched in the evening, it goes into the chicken’s bowl. He will soon start eating. He’s still adjusting.
I am so glad he is here with us at Gullringstorp!

Boris is at Gullringstorp !!!


We have Boris home with us at Gullringstorp !!!!
He has a lot to become adjusted to. Is say it will be sensory overload for a while. New enclosure, new sights and sounds and new family.
We will give Boris all the time he needs to feel at home at Gullringstorp.

Boris came from a very loving home but his owner was unable to spend the time needed with him. He wanted him to be in a home where he could get lots of consistent attention.

As we left, I have Boris’ dad a big hug. Even though he made this very responsible decision, I know it was difficult to say goodbye. I promised to keep him updated and send photos of Boris regularly.

Feels really good to finally have Boris here with us .

These are items that we brought from his prior home: a humidifier, food dish , heating cord and a netting to climb up on and his bath tub to swim in and potty in. I hope his familiar items help Boris have a smooth transition to his new home.
