First thing is first. I want to apologize to you all! With all the excitement of planning, setting up, and watching Dora’s birthday celebration yesterday, I forgot to provide all of you, our wonderful supporters and followers, an update on Jamie’s recovery. Dr. Erin said she was recovering so well that she could be reunited with her family, and just in time for the Tiny Forage Celebration yesterday. I will take the blame on that one.
Yes! The boss has returned and it was as if nothing had happened during her absence. She seamlessly reestablished herself in her group with no fuss from the others. We are still monitoring her recovery sites to make sure everything continues to heal properly and no one messes with it too much. *ahem*Dr. Missy*ahem*
With Jamie’s couple day absence, she has been eager to get back to her morning patrols around Young’s Hill.
While we were on our first patrol of the day, I watched as both Missy and Annie foraged for morning prickly lettuce.
With it being such a nice day, Missy and Annie’s morning foraging made it seem like it was a great day to hold a lunch forage. Since we had some leftovers from yesterday’s celebration, and they seemed excited for that menu, we included that into their lunch! (With the addition of bok choy.)
As they went onto Young’s Hill, Jamie was carrying a bag of primate chow that was given to her earlier. As she made her way up the hill, she decided she couldn’t be bothered carrying around her bag of chow. Once she left her bag behind, there was a very exciting food grunting of the one who snatched it up. It was none other than Negra!
Jamie seemed to think carrying around her chow occupied her hands, which she needed to grab as much food as she could:
Missy made her rounds collecting as many tomatoes as should could:
Jody made off with a nice haul:
After finishing the extra bag of chow she “found,” Negra’s eyes were set on bok choy:
And then there’s this guy:
He was enjoying his forage and got a good amount…
After having his fill, he noticed this caregiver taking photos.
And the Bronx cheers began:
It was off to the races for us and that ended my photography duties on that side of the Chimp House for the day.
It was a pleasant day all around!

Once again, I want to thank everyone involved in making yesterday possible. Without your support and donations, we wouldn’t be able to throw such a successful party! There are other way to help as were continue our day-to-day tasks and prepare for our next celebration (Honey B’s birthday June 11th!). Be sure to check out our wishlist to see what we need to continue providing the best care that we can for these 20 (bovine included) unique personalities.
