The little raggedy guy
He's been here one month and little Raggedy Man is still raggedy, but he's putting on weight on his back bone and his skin is getting better. His nutrition was neglected so he has very scaly skin, like a crocodile. He's shedding out better after being neutered.
But the biggest change in this little fellow is his demeanor. Always gentle, he was hesitant and skittish when he arrived. But now he doesn't run from me, and likes to get brushed. He has the most innocent little expression. I have really fallen in love with both Lofa and Raggedy Man. Having so many small dark pygmy creatures around is quite comical - like a barnyard set from "Wizard of Oz". Thank you to Northern Mother and New Moon Goat Farm and Rescue for once again taking them in and getting them down to Apifera.
