Every home needs to be freshened up from time to time, and Herman’s home was no exception. After initial efforts to maintain moderate levels of humidity in his home failed, the guardian sought expert advice and it was decided that forest moss was the solution. The new flooring was softer and, though his exploratory mouthfuls proved that this new green stuff was not edible as he had hoped, Herman approved the change. Although he didn’t particularly care much about the flooring, the change included a new climbing rock and he was quite excited about that. Unlike the pond, the climbing rock had an easy and a difficult slope that he challenge himself with. It also gave him an excellent vantage point to stare back at Lucy, who often spent her mornings watching him from her perch on the bed.
