We are all delighted about another cat finding a home - Cross eyed Monty see here on left was spotted on the website and he has gone to live with four other felines and their carers. We all thought Monty was great and loved his unusual appearance so its good that someone else agreed with us enough to offer him a home.
Little old dog now named Pippa has been to the vet and she has been given an injection to prevent puppies, she has to go back tomorrow for another.Springer Max is being neutered on thursday so we have decided he can been found have his legs/hips checked at the same time. Two more lurcher/greyhouds have been found, one on a local beach, no ID of course, we have had to put one in a local kennels and the other has a foster home already so there is either time for the owner to claim him or another home to be found for him He is a very pretty fawn colour and the other we have named Teddy is similar to the Dog Pound lurcher(could they be siblings?) What is going on with these dogs? Probably the nice weather has all the lurcher boys out hunting and they are probably of the attitude if one fails to return it is no good as a working dog! Of course I am just assuming this because there is no way I could ever understand the mindset of these killers of the countryside.
Mary lamb has joined our three resident sheep and is more than happy to be with her own kind. See the photo of her shortly after they were all introduced to each other. In the next field Caradog and Phoebe are very interested in the new arrival. Vanessa rode Caradog yesterday and it was felt that with a little more schooling he would be suitable to go to a home with an experienced rider. What we really need is someone willing to take on the pair as they are very close to one another. They are both far too healthy and fit to spend their lives here and we need all the space we can get for the infirm and needy animals which need sanctuary for the remainder of their lives.
The photo of dear old Noddy is not advertising his demise! The old man is simply having a snooze in the sun and is completely oblivious to any activity going on around him, like any senior citizen he likes his afternoon siesta, at the age of 38 he is the equivalent of a 100 year old human being!
