Hi Maddy, Rita and all . Thank you for all your posts. I know it has been tough. I have been watching and so glad to see Simba with a full crop. Earlier at 6:20 Shadow brought a fish for Simba I wanted to share this scap . Thought it would be a relief . If you know what i mean.

Oh Maddy it's absolutely wonderful to see him with a nice crop again. It's been at least a week since we have seen it. Hope this continues. Especially in this heat.

3:11 pm He's been watching something up higher in the tree.
