TJ is a sweet boy who loves a game of chase. He’s also a master nest builder, and especially likes using plastic toys to make himself a nice nest. He became fast friends with Hawkins who shares his love for a good game of chase, and he’s also very fond of his caregivers, specifically the ones he knows well. If you’re new, TJ needs a little time to feel you out, and if you try to get familiar too quickly he’s been known to throw a little poo to let you know he’s not feeling it. (However, he’s very careful with his aim so as not to accidentally get anything on his friends!)
“TJ’s always up on his platforms with his pal Nicole; they both love to know what’s going on at the sanctuary. When he’s not being nosy, he’s been enjoying hanging out with his friends Hawkins, Leann, and Starburst playing chase and climbing around their corral.”
