Everyone is now happily settled, and the escape attempts have stopped now that Valleray is in with Sappho, Leto, and Lola-Grace. Yes, Valleray. It became quite apparent that Demonax was not liked, and was not going to garner any response outside of disdain. So, in the fine tradition of allowing animals to choose their own name, I ran a number of them by our rescued boy (I pushed for Hellequin, but no go), and Valleray was the one he liked. (From The Ghost Riders of Ordebec, by Fred Vargas, the character of Comte Rémy François de Valleray). So, anyway, no more desperate chewing of mats, suicide leaps and all that. Valleray has been doing wonderful, and he has a very gentle, sweet temperament. I’m seriously at a loss as to why anyone would have abused him, then dumped him so cruelly. Only Sappho and Lola-Grace were up and about for photos, click for full size.
