Little Orange

Little Orange came to RAPS around two years ago when the woman who'd been feeding the semi-feral moved and couldn't look after him any more. She said she hoped to be able to come and get him after she moved to the new place, but unfortunately that hope never came to anything.

Volunteer Julian remembers remembers when Little Orange, or Rowan, as he likes to call him was a new arrival at the sanctuary. He would apparently spend his time just sitting up on a shelf in his cage and peering over the edge. Gradually, he became more and more comfortable with the people at RAPS.

These days he's a friendly guys and likes few things better than a good tummy rub.
