@glumshoe for some resolution.
I kept him in the back for a little while, but I didn’t want him to die inside. When I took him out, he immediately started to perk up and move around! I set him on a bush above the ground, and in some light colored leaves so hopefully the ants and the birds can’t get to him.
I showed him to a lot of people today, and they all thought he was beautiful too. I hate to let him go, but whatever happens to him, he’s outside on a beautiful day in the sunshine.
