Adopt Loomster

Patient Progress

Weaning Loomster is still being fed a zoological milk formula, but as his teeth are beginning to erupt, his diet is being supplemented with fish. Soon, he will enter fish school where he will learn how to eat fish on his own.

Patient Updates

Loomster is receiving supportive fluid but otherwise seems to be doing okay. He was alert and responsive this evening, a good sign!

Guestbook for Loomster

  1. I’m thrilled that this little guy arrived safely. What a surprise he/she was to find on the beach!! I was impressed at how quickly the young lady from your organization came and how caring she was in collecting him. Take care, Loomster. I will be checking on you. 🙂
