Today Steve has learned that he can hop over the baby gate keeping him in his room. By hop, I mean sorta gracefully flop over the baby gate, but either way, Steve has learned to escape. He figured it out last night for the first time and apparently did it again today because he wanted to go sniff all the other animals at The Pipsqueakery.
Luckily, we can contain him with 2 baby gates stacked on top of each other, but when we are home with him we like him to be able to peek over the top of the gate. I guess this could be considered progress though since by hopping the baby gate Steve is actively moving towards us. Alas, I worry this “progress” is the first step to waking up with a capybara in our bed one morning.
Steve apparently needs more space though so I guess I should ask you all to check out our fundraisers for the rescue center at bit.ly/pipcenter4, Gofundme.com/pipsqueakrescuecenter. You can also donate through Venmo to @thepipsqueakery, or through PayPal to paypal.me/thepipsqueakery! #capybara #escape #sanctuary #rescue #capy #cantaloupe
