The Furrtographer: “So, I Was At This Shoot….”

“….with a sweet grey kitten this morning when this bystander kept attacking me, then diving inside my camera bag. I’m going to need a security guard/bouncer one of these days!”

Pineapple Rules The Roost!

FUR_2954-X3This girl’s not on the adoption list at SF Animal Care And Control- she runs the office!

Photos by The Furrtographer, who says: “Pineapple flew into someone’s office window, so they brought her to ACC, no idea where she came from but she’s very sweet. She does live at ACC and is taken care of by the staff there.”

Back To Costa Rica With The Furrtographer

Cuteporter Holly H. spotted this Sloth-Tacular on The Telegraph. (Well, it turns out The Furrtographer was down at the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica two years ago, but The Telly is just now on it. They must not have seen this post!) His comments are below.

“In 2012 I was lucky to be accepted as the “artist in residence” at the Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, also known as Aviarios Del Caribe. My primary goal was to take photos of the sloths, as I had never seen one in the wild or at a zoo, and was curious to find out what they were like.”

“Over the course of my two week stay at the sanctuary I took many pictures, but also served as a volunteer alongside several other visitors from all around the world. The sanctuary has since discontinued its visitor and artist in residence program in order to focus its energies full-time on the sloths in its care, so I was extremely lucky to be able to experience the sloths up close like I did.”

“We were able to feed them twice a day which included preparing their meals, then delivering plates of food to them inside their roomy enclosures.”

“In the mornings after breakfast we’d take some of the younger orphaned sloths and train them to climb on a small jungle gym the sanctuary created out of large sticks.”

Sloth_sanctuary_3_2928188k
“Since these sloths were without a mother to show them the ropes, they had to learn on their own, and with the help of other sloths.”

Sloth_sanctuary_4_2928191k
“After some jungle gym time, we’d put the sloths back in their areas, then take a break for lunch. We’d repeat the process again in a few hours for dinner, which usually consisted of a plate of vegetables all freshly prepared by the volunteers and staff.”

“All in all it was an amazing trip, and I got to know many of the sloths on a personal level through spending a lot of time with them over the course of two weeks. They are sweet, curious, and have very sharp claws and a few sharp teeth as well.”

Sloth_sanctuary_6_2928194k
“I learned the females have a high-pitched mating call, and that most sloths only defecate about once a week at the bottom of whichever tree they are currently using for shelter.”

Sloth_sanctuary_7_2928198k
“Overall it was an amazing trip, and Judy and the rest of the staff were extremely hospitable.”

Sloth_sanctuary_9__2928204k
“I’d love to go back someday, and the sanctuary offers tours and lodging if you want to experience the sloths for yourself. I highly recommend it!”
