A very big arrival of mice and a stranded seal pup.

The pregnant bitch is too far ahead with her pregnancy to have spayed, she only has around 2 weeks to go, so much for the farmer saying that she was only caught by another dog 3 or 4 weeks ago! I need a foster home for her, someone who doesnt have cats is a must as I wouldnt trust her at all.She is great with people and other dogs but would definitely have a go at a cat.
Problem of the week is the arrival of 100 pet mice, the owner has let the situation get completely out of control and now has literally hundreds of mice in his house running riot.Sandra, a friend in Anglesey has also taken some, she has 30 but there are probably a few hundred more so I have had to send out an appeal to other shelters for help.Our 100 have been split into 2 groups, males and females, it is a horrendous problem,they are prettily marked little things but have been kept in appalling conditions and were very hungry and thirsty.
Tonight Barry (the friend who was to join me on the Peru Trek) has taken a seal pup to the vet, he was stranded on a local beach and needs to be checked over, then we have to find a specialist sanctuary to help with him.More of this tomorrow.
There is never a dull moment here!
