It was my great joy to get to volunteer at an animal sanctuary in Bolivia this spring! For 2 weeks I got to care for, walk, water, feed and clean up after this magnificent creature! A puma named Gato! He was very old and quite tame so I could scratch his ears and fuss on him all day! Yes he would try to bite me, but he didn't try very hard! I also got to work with the 50+ parrots, macaws and toucans for 2 weeks! They were a handful, Gato was a dream! I dream realized actually! Sadly Gato passed away this July but not without taking the heart of every volunteer who ever worked with him, with him! A great priviledge, my beautiful Gato, thank you for enriching my life. I hope I did the same for yours.
