The fawn, named Granizo, modeled for Kahlo’s painting The Wounded Deer and was one of her many pets. There were at least two spider monkeys, several parrots, doves, two turkeys, mexican hairless dogs (undoubtedly helping her to feel part of the MesoAmerican tradition) and a tame osprey named Gertrudis Caca Blanca because it white-shitted the stairs.

One of the parrots, a heavy drinker of both beer and tequila, would startle visitors when loudly shouting “No me pasa la cruda!” between sips – meaning he was not going to survive this hangover.
