Roo is doing well and has kept himself busy this week by collecting all the fish heads off the bottom of the nursery pool, and stacking them in the corner on the haul out area, too munch on in the afternoon.
Ronnie is still in the hospital, learning to feed herself, she is really enjoying the water in her pen, and spends all day swimming.
With Magnet doing really well in the hospital, and clear blood results, Magnet was moved to Nursery pool 2 to join Roo and Pebbles.
Pebbles is slowly getting used to being outside, and is feeding well, she thinks that Roo is a little odd for collecting fish heads.
Koko has had a very busy week, first being moved into nursery pool 1 with Simba and Mutley, not that she went in the water much, and then the shock of the ACT opening the gate to the Convalescence pool. Here all three of them stayed as if the gate had not opened.
Mutley is doing good, just needs to pluck up the courage to go into the Convalescence pool.
Narla has now been moved out of the temporary pen and is in hospital pen 4. She is still a little nervous of new things, but hope in time she will gain more confidence.
Simba, along with Mutley and Koko, spent two days in the nursery pool even though it was open, and would only come out during the feeds, take the fish and head back to the nursery pool. To stop this happening and for the pups to start their last stage of rehabilitation, the ACT have now closed off nursery pool so they have no choice but to be in the Convalescence pool.
Gnasher is still in the hospital, but continues to improve, he should be ready to be moved out in to the nursery pools next week, and we are waiting on clear blood results.
Daisy is still in isolation 3, and her wounds are healing slowly. When they have healed we can move her through to the main hospital.
We have some sad news, Squirt passed away in the early hours of Monday morning. Her body was taken for a post mortem; this will tell us what she died of. Squirt was in poor body condition when she came in and the ACT did everything that was possible for this very sick seal.
Penfold is now in the main hospital, and is feeding for himself. He will be going into the water very soon for swimming lessons and once he is confident, he will be moved to the nursery pools.
Spongebob, Pup No. Thirteen, is in isolation 2 still and will be until early next week. When we have a pen free in the main hospital, he will be moved through for the next stage of rehabilitation.
