But this escapade is just one of many for bold Bikuto. In fact, adventure is in his very name. Corley named him after a settlement she worked on in Uganda last summer. She found him on Craigslist in Chattanooga, Tennessee, not far from where she attended college at Sewanee: University of the South. “He belonged to a young boy who became bored with him,” Corley says. “But his original name was Stormy. I immediately changed it.”
While living as an honorary college student with Corley, Bikuto adjusted to dorm life just fine. He rode around on Corley’s shoulder as she roamed around campus, walked alongside her in the shady Sewanee trails and loved to relax by the creeks. Bikuto even has an Instagram account, @fratstarbikuto, for his college groupies to follow.
Now that Corley has moved back to Lake Highlands, Bikuto enjoys his daily dose of blueberries and a wide selection of worms. “He also loves cilantro,” Corley says as Bikuto throws himself off of her lap and sprints away.
