    Hi Natrah & everyone. Sorry ive been absent for a while had a few things going on. Dickie decided to eat a bit of kale today (below), that is until I tried holding it for her which she didn’t appreciate & walked off 🥴 She has some elevated white cells so Monday will start with antibiotic...

    That would have been a brilliant picture, if only he had another hand!

    George is doing well eating as normal except for his biscuits as he can’t have them until his gums have healed. He is trying hard to reach the area where the cyst was removed & with a lot of effort can only just reach the end part of the incision so I’m keeping an eye on that. The vets don’t...

    No Dickie hasnt eaten today but she did come out of her box herself, without one of us having to get her out, although it was 2pm by then. That’s when we had the most sun although it wasn’t that warm. Its rained this evening & the forecast looks like rain tomorrow for some of the day so not...

    Natrah I always find the well meaning advice on here helpful so I agree with Angie to continue with what Jacky is used to. We have followed your suggestion of using a heat lamp & today for the first time Dickie had a few bites of a cherry & a bit of cabbage once she went back outside in the...

    They look really yummy. Did you make them? I wish Dickie was tucking in like Jacky & Zola. She isn’t interested in eating as it’s too cold. I put her out on the grass where the sun was & she gradually moved away & eventually ended up next to the fence where she stayed for the rest of the day...

    No the weather is getting worse as the day goes on. We set up Dickies box & run in the dark last night & have used breeze blocks & wood to block off the escape routes against the fence gaps. Luckily the breeze blocks have large holes in so I’m hoping the hedgehogs will be able to get through...

    Dickie has finally moved to our garden... I will take some photos over the next few days assuming she leaves her box. The weather is pretty cold & wet & it doesn’t look any better for tomorrow. A big rainbow appeared as we put her in the car. It was also raining. The house sale completes...

    You could be a giddy Jacky if you spin too fast! I haven’t been out today. I stayed inside my straw with my head poking out watching all the bird visitors. I get the sense some changes are on the way, I don’t know what they are yet but hope I will like them 🤞 Hoping for some sunshine tomorrow...

    Rather you than me dealing with teenage attitude! Seems like you know her well after teaching her for 9 years. You’re right permission to move the pole would be required as it’s a conservation area but we don’t intend to do it. It’s up to whoever buys the property to do that or just leave it...

    Yes Dickie has started to eat a bit more & is foraging in the lawn. It makes such a difference when the sun comes out 😊 Would you believe it if I told you it was looking likely that the sale will fall through again?! The buyer has asked for us to contribute to moving a telegraph pole that splits...

    Daisy's Anniversary

    That’s interesting, could the grass be fermenting? I don’t know if that gives off a smell. I remember reading something about not giving any cut or picked grass to my rabbits due to some process within the grass that starts as soon as it’s broken.

    No news no news on the contract exchange today 😟 Not a lot of sunshine today so Dickie is still a bit slow. Got a potential problem, saw a fat rat or two having a drink down near the shed. Not sure if rats pose a risk to tortoises, I know they can do if they are hibernating. Pete wants to...

    Dickie had a nibble at some cabbage, Pete could see it hanging out of her mouth when he went over there. He’s been picking some dandelion heads he saw on the way over but at the time she didn’t seem interested. This afternoon we had an unexpected heavy shower so I expect she went back in her...

    Lots of rain again here today so Dickie had another day in the kitchen. Contracts to be exchanged this Friday & completion 2 weeks time. Dickie will need to come here very soon so we’re hoping for some better weather. With Sherman, I think the plan is to keep him away from the pond! I think...

    Hello Natrah No Dickie isn’t eating yet. Pete has said before she won’t eat until she is back outside permanently but no chance of that today as it’s rained all day. Sherman was about on Saturday wandering round his garden. He wasn’t out at first but after Pete had gone into his enclosure he...
