Sunday Selfies on a Monday….I know I’m late for a Very important date!

Hay Guys! I know I’m very late for an important Date! That Date is obviously Sunday Selfies….

The reason why I’m late is because mum had lots of chores to do and it was a lovely warm day more like Spring than winter so she took me out in my stroller for a nice walk and then I even had a little romp about in a field too. See I didn’t need my fleece sweater on today! Then it was time to get back for lunch and then Mum for the first time in years put up some Christmas lights in the back garden for us to enjoy. She didn’t have many sets left as a lot of the old lights had stopped working and the old twig tree had wore out and she had recycled them and not replaced them but she did buy a little projector which has 2 Christmas slides one with snow flakes and the other with coloured Christmas images so that with the lights she had left and our old snowman it looks quite pretty. Any you’ll get to see them soon Because My other important Date is the Launch of my Annual Christmas and Holiday Countdown which Starts TOMORROW!!!!!

That’s Right Tomorrow is the 1st day of My Annual Christmas and Holiday Countdown so I need you all to send in your Photo’s of you with your trees, in your Christmas outfits, anything to do with the Holiday Season no matter what you Celebrate! Then I will pick my Favourite 3 after my final post on Christmas Day and they will get a little gift for the Holiday in the new year!

Sunday selfie with Speedy

It’s Sunday and we have been in Lock Down a few days now. Mum has been back out in the garden doing some autumn tidying up. Bird has been coming everyday for Breakfast and Dinner. Bird sat in the Acer Tree watching mum in the garden, for some reason Bird loves to watch mum in the garden so she gave Bird a treat which was scoffed down. Mum has managed to collect some extra Christmas photos for my Christmas and Holiday Countdown, so even with the Lock Down we are still preparing for that. And Don’t forget I still need you to send me your photos when you are ready for Christmas.

Anyway just me for Sunday Selfies from a recent walk.

Before I go I just wanted to say that we are very sad That Boodie from Summer’s Fabulous Cat Life , Raven from Induged Furries , and Pipo from Meezer’s Mews & Terrieristical Woofs have all crossed the Rainbow Bridge…..Run free my friends in the Heavens above. Until we meet again!

Hello from the House of Speedy

 Hello from the House of Speedy! I seem to be starting out a lot like this lately don’t I?

Well its been a while again since my last blog, but it’s safe to say we are ok. We haven’t been doing much because well Covid has been increasing again and the safer places to go have been to difficult to visit due to lots of rain. We did get to go to Cornwall for a couple of days but the weather wasn’t great but we did go here….

 Mum did manage to take me to one of our favorite garden centers a couple of weeks ago and they were getting ready for Christmas so most of those we will save for my Annual Christmas and Holiday Countdown….Yes that will still be going ahead. The Bad news is The UK is going in to full Lockdown due to Covid till December 2nd so all non essential shops and business have to close from Thursday this coming week so no more collecting Christmas photos to get a head for my Countdown.Anyway here I am at the garden center….

Mum Got fed up with the weather so put up 3 of our Christmas trees….in out house Christmas is here! And she is already getting the presents in just incase things get worse with covid. But I am saving the photos for my Countdown.

We still have Hedgehogs coming for Dinner and we have one Late summer Juvenile staying over in one of the nest boxes so they are doing great as far as we can tell. But today we have a guest Selfie from Bird the Jackdaw. Bird has been hanging out in the back garden as well as the front due to us haveing some very stormy weather….Bird even stayed over one night and a day and sheltered under the garden furniture to get out of the wind and rain. Yesterday afternoon Bird left as the weather improved but we are expecting Bird to come back cause another storm has arrived. So lets get up close and Personal with Bird…..

Bird even eats out of mums hand now too…How Cool is that? Anyway that’s all for now, Until next time stay safe everyone!

THE CONTENTED CAT

Guess Who?

 Guess Who?Yup its me Speedy been a while hasn’t it?Well we are all ok not doing very much because the tourists are down here in their droves and well they have no idea on social distancing So there have been no new adventures for me.So here’s a selfie of me to remind you all of me….

Its a good one of me considering I am all scruffy.I am shedding my coat everywhere my back has gone and left me with a short patch,I have short patches everywhere and it’s driving mum crazy with all my fine loss fluff going up her nose and in her eyes..

Well Bird is doing well pretty much independent though still comes for breaky and sometimes later in the day for snacks and water and of course a bath.The hedgehogs are eating us out of house and home,So we are all good!Hope you are all doing well too!

New Arrivals at the Hotel Speedy

Meet Pupmite! Pupmite is a new Baby Juvenile Hedgehog.It was brought to our garden by its mum…who we think is Pup. Pupmite has been staying in the middle nest box in our garden…

And this fellow is a young Jackdaw that hangs in the garden all day for the last few days.At first it seemed a bit weak,like it was struggling a bit but now its much bright and flies off and then comes back.Mum and Dad have been feeding it so it can get stronger.Dad reckons there is something not quite right with it but mum reckons its a late developer from this years batch.just unusual to see it hanging around in our garden and not mixing with the others local to where we live.Anyway Bird as Dad calls it is doing much better…bet Bird will be at our place at 6.30am tomorrow!Any way meet Bird…

Well that’s all for now at the Hotel Speedy!

Where has the time gone?

Where has the time gone?Mum was supposed to have done a post about the Hedgehogs in the garden but that went bye bye….The reason is I have a swollen right front paw.don’t mind the photo it was taken before mum bathed it….

So since Monday I have been on a course of antibiotics and painkiller with daily foot baths to keep it clean,it now looks like this..

the redness has reduce and a little bit of the swelling has gone down,but it is still a bit swollen and sore so this is being emailed to the vets to see if they want to see me or give me something else.

As for Pup the female and Hogmite the male hedgehogs that over wintered in the green house they have successfully been released….but to our surprise they mated before Hogmite went off on walk about looking for more ladies.Pup stayed for a while but she has gone walk about too but I think hse still comes for a bit of food and water sometimes.But We have a new visitor another male who comes for dinner one of last years babies…could even be pups brother who disappeared.And Pups Mum has moved back for a bit too.Mummy has some video footage to upload but she has been busy with me and the garden so she hasn’t had much time to do it but she will…at some point!

Also we heard Brian’s Dad Terry has been poorly and is in Hospital so we Hope he feels better soon!

Sunday Selfies with the Cat onMy Head

Hello!I’m Back from a little break

I know its been a few weeks since I last posted.Who knew the being on Lock Down would create so much work at home.So when the restrictions started Mum started this…

The Garden went from this to this…

Then she started doing veggies and repurposed some stuff to make a raised veggie bed….

she did some herbs,dwarf runner beans,carrots,potatoes and tomatoes in the greenhouse!

The garden then looked like this….

Mummy has got some other veg and herbs going in the green house and the tomatoes are now little plants.Mum has some new seeds to start and she has some more on order,So that is a work in progress.However the garden now looks like this….

As you can see the grass is growing,as are the potatoes,carrots,strawberries and some more runner beans.Mum has been very busy even the sheds have been painted but need some new felt for the wooden shed roof. ans there are some other jobs to continue with like cutting the grass in places out the front garden.But all the Hedgehog nest boxes are out the front but I’ll tell you all about my prickly friends in the week…I have so much to tell you about them.

But today I got to do this….

And I had this great thank you gift from Valentine  at Noir Kitty Mews,he invited me to do a fun interview with him.It was lots of fun so you should go take a look if you haven’t already

Anyway I’ll tell you all about the Hedgies in the week…Stay safe and have fun!
