PLOOPY AND SHUNUKIE
Several years ago, a kind individual bought young meerkats kept in terrible conditions to give them back their freedom in a farm. Others who had second thoughts about the meerkats they purchased ended up giving them to that person.
Eventually, the meerkats had offsprings. Ploopy, rejected at birth by her mom, was hand-raised by her human companions. Shunukie’s mom would leave the litter with their human companions while foraging so he became very sweet. They are free to do as they please in the farm and have never been caged. They even have their own burrows.
