Im so sorry that it has been a few days since my last post. It's not been a very good week as unfortunately baby Ben died a couple of days ago. I was quite surprised as he seemed to be doing really good. I know that I did everything that I could for the little fella and there was nothing that I could have done to prevent his death. I think sometimes no matter how much we can do for them their Mummies are still the best to get them through their early days of life. I am so glad though that he died being warm, comfy and loved very much.
I put him into a tiny matchbox amongst cotton wool and me and Martin buried him by the gooseberry bush around the hedgie cabins in the garden. Amazing how something so tiny can touch your life.
Anyway I am going to share some happy stuff now. I know you have all been asking how Harry is!!!.
My gorgeous little Harry is now at the rescue centre as the treatment he was receiving through the vets was not helping. He is receiving the proper medication now and is doing really good. He will be coming back to me as soon as he is given a full clean bill of health. I will let you all know as soon as he is back.
Now for some more pic's of the littlies I am looking after at the moment.
This is little Sam and he is 10 weeks old. He was found in someone's garden laying on the ground. He had some bad head injuries. There was no sign of Mum or any siblings so how he got there is a mystery. Sam is doing amazingly and is such a happy boy, so funny and cheeky. Despite being on his own he is so with it and jumping, climbing and has a massive appetite!!!. When we can we are going to try pair him up with another squirrel/s as they are not solitude creatures unlike hedgehogs. He will eventually be released but only when the circumstances are right for him.
Yay I have got the guinea girls again!!! I am looking after them for Monica as she has gone away for a much needed break. I absolutely love looking after Piggy, Sassy, Blossom & Petal. They are so beautiful placid little things. I have been thoroughly spoiling them (I got them that hay roll!) and with plenty of fruit & veg.
Onto hoggie rescues I have had three in the last 2 weeks. One found in my shed and the other two at the food station. I had to get the rescue centre to come out to all three as they were emergencies. One hoggy had head injuries, another with mange and lung worm and Monday night I found one with a nasty wound by his hind leg and when he was collected and examined we found he had fly strike on him which if not treated is a very slow and painful death.
So all is busy here at the bungalow. Although I am very tired and suffering from a very painful infected thumb (now on antibiotics) it is so well worth it to look after these gorgeous creatures.
I cannot forget about my two beautiful babies so here's a couple of pic's to share.
Here's my Bertie boy who absolutely adores all of the animals here, especially the guinea piggies. He sits down by their pen just watching them and pushes his face against the netting and the piggies come up and sniff him, so cute!!!.
Here's my beautiful girl Simone in a playful mood. She gets a bit jealous of all of the animals so I make sure she gets buckets of love and attention so she doesn't feel left out.
Thank you all for your lovely comments it is so great knowing that you are so interested in my rescue stories. I promise to keep you all updated.
I have nearly finished a card so will try and post that tomorrow. Not getting loads done on the craft front at the moment but after Sunday things should be a bit easier again.
Don't forget to leave a comment on my candy post if you are a follower!!!!.
