Well, another busy, busy week comes to a close at In-Sync Exotics!

We started off the week with an update on Lassiter’s health condition.  Bless his heart, Lassiter required dental surgery to remove one of his canines.  A blog reader left us a comment asking if this tooth performed any function.  Well, canines are primarily used to “kill” prey and to help strip meat from animal bones.  So, in a sense, Lassiter may miss this right canine during bone night as there usually quite a bit of meat still attached to his tasty treats!  Lassiter is recovering well and has resumed his normal activities.  Thank you everyone for your kind words of encouragement and prayers for our cougar during his time of need!

On Tuesday, we reported the adventures of our interns as they took an educational trip to Fossil Rim last Friday.  You have got to see the amazing photographs taken on this trip!  We also congratulated Andrea Torino as she was selected as our new keeper!  Monday will be her first day as an official In-Sync Exotics’ employee—so if you see Andrea on Monday, be sure to congratulate her on her “promotion” from volunteer to staff!

Wednesday’s posting was about a couple of animal moves that we made to enhance our bobcats and coatimundi's quality of life.  We decided to move Chance, Lydia, and Isaac into a larger space formerly occupied by Nugget.  We moved our coatimundi closer to the commissary into what used to be the former bobcat enclosure.  Nugget just loves, loves, loves his new home!  He spends a lot more time outside his den.  He is no longer oblivious of his tiger neighbors as he is often seen mimicking their behaviors.  The bobcats also seem very happy with their larger living quarters, but due to the cold weather they seem to want to spend more time in their heated dens than outside playing in their playground! 

Thanks to some questions from our audience, we thought we’d officially introduce Nugget to the blog!  So Thursday’s posting was all about our “honorary” wild cat, Nugget!   Who knew this little critter has such a passion for shrimp!

If you haven’t noticed yet, we’ve been very busy adding new cards and gifts to the on-line gift store, just in time for Valentine’sDay!  The new cards and gifts feature our animals—and if we may say so, they are absolutely stunning!!!  You can find cards, key chains, journals, and mouse pads on this site.

Aasha's Journal!
We are also offering a special feature.  If you see an In-Sync Exotics card that you like, and you’d like to personalize it with your special someone’s name, send us an email and we’ll create it and place it in our store.  Please do not use last names on the cards or places of business.  You can add limited text, but it has to be “G” rated.  We will create and post the card to the store and advise you when it’s ready for purchase by return email!  This will be for a limited time only, so send in your requests today!

And remember, proceedes from purchased gifts and cards benefits the animals of In-Sync Exotics!  Thank you!

We hope you had a terrific week!   Please join us once again next week for more interesting and educational postings on the happenings at In-Sync Exotics!
