    Rescue gander will he fit in?

    Well he’s definitely on the prowl but Waffles is sticking up for his girl. Bruce is stuck to them now and tries to do the before mating poke to pancake but they haven’t gone beyond that I def don’t think waffles will let that happen. They are a little tripod for now so I guess all is well.
