There are a few important things I wanted everyone to know before I update with our new babies . . .
Thanks to Amazon Cares NGO, I recently received 145U$ donation — it took some time, but finally we recieved the money.
Now an exvolunteer who has helped me a lot while he was here, and wants to keep helping, has opened a pay pal account for Pilpintuwasi. So I can recieve donations now via pay pal. The account is:firstname.lastname@example.org
As in Peru paypal doesn’t work, the friend also opened a new hotmail account for Pilpintuwasi where I can check on any donations—and if there is a sum of money he will treansfer it from the UK to my bank account in Peru.
We also got a little ozelot we got in March. First it weighed less than a kilo (above), now Harry—that’s her name—weighs 5kgs . . . that’s a picture of her on top of the page.
A Reminder: Please do not buy baby animals; the black market has to be stopped and won’t be as long as people can sell these orphaned animals to unsuspecting tourists. (The sellers generally have killed the parents of the animals; parents do not abandon their animals in the wild.)

a new baby and toni is in “jail”
We got a new anteater—again the mother was hunted and eaten, and the kg baby left at Pilpintuwasi-with a bullet wound. She’s also named Rosita. Her caretaker —a boy from the village— carries her around and looks for ant nests for her). The vet cured her bullet wound. Rosita has been a month with me—she’s still very small, weighs 4kgs she needs extra proteins, similar to those used by a bodybuilder. It is more expensive to feed her right now than the jaguar as she consumes weekly 3 jars of powdered milk without lactosis, needs daily vitamin K and the proteins. Cross all your fingers please that she gets big and strong.
Last week I also got two babysloths from some people who had killed the mothers to eat them.
Chavo is fortunately still with us, but we have not yet found a medication that really helps with her epileptic seizures. Some veterinarians recommended Pottasium Bromide, but Istill don’t have the exact information about how to use that drug, so she’s still on Fenitoina—but has many seizures. It’s almost a miracle that she’s still so nice and good natured.
Toni the pickpocket had to be put into jail. She started to get really aggressive with human females, bit a few girls, and finally we had to put her in a cage, together with Junior, the black cappuchin, who started to bite children. Both of them now have company—a little white-fronted cappuchin who was dropped at the farm by a tourist, who had bough ther on the way to Iquitos in one of the boats.
Tony adopted the baby and all of them are fine.
Best wishes and all my love,
