Vets and Health checks

OMB Mummy took me to the vets this week for My annual Myxomatosis/RVHD type 1 combi vaccination and while I was there the vet gave me a health check. He checked my teeth and gave me a feel around the tummy and a few other checks and that was all ok….but then he weighed me…..and that was not ok! It seems I have gained some weight a couple of hundred grams !Mummy explained that I haven’t been very mobile for a while with my arthritis and that she has started me on my CBD Hemp oil which is now helping me alot. The vet was very interested to see how I was doing on it and mum told him I can use my litter tray,I want to play and go out in the garden and just generally more active.Anyway the Vet said that is good and should help me lose a bit of weight but he also said to cut back a bit more on my pellets too….Can you believe it The Vet is trying to starve me!!!!

 

So here I am playing in the garden!

Mr Mickey the Hedgehog is due to be delivered back to the garden on Tuesday so mummy made a new big feeding station and swapped it for the smaller one which she has moved to another part of the garden ready for Mr Mickey to use for a bit.The plane is to gradually phase the smaller one out and get them all using the same feed station as its huge!Its big enough to accommodate 3 or 4 hedgehogs depending on how big they are….all at the same time.And then the smaller one will get cleaned and changed back to a nest box.So here’s mummys handy work…

See what I mean by Huge?!!!Anyway we are off on a road trip tomorrow for a vacation so one of our neighbours is going to feed the Hedgehogs so Lola,Reggie and Mr Mickey will be just fine!Even the birds will be taken care of with feeders, bird cakes and leftover hog kibble from each day plus they will have the bird bath topped up too!Anyway time for my close ups!

Sunday Selfies Update on the House of Speedy!

Well Hello There! It’s been a crazy time with Easter and Tiny Tim the Baby Robin and waiting for Mr Mickey the Hedgehog to come back from the rescue. Well as for Mr Mickey we’re still waiting,every time we think he’s coming home the weather decides to do a screwy and turns to cold at night and to rough. Would you believe it we have woken up to a frost again this Morning?So it is supposed to be turning milder again with a wet spell but drying up at the end of the week so keep your paws and fingers crossed. We do have another Hoggie who has moved into the empty nest box….we think it’s Miss lola who we think is a girl and of course Reggie is still visiting most nights for some dinner.So now we are caught up with all that now its time to get caught up with me…..

So We all know that I have a touch of Arthritis well it’s been bothering me a bit more lately and making it harder to get in and out of my litter tray to the point I couldn’t be bothered with using cause I was too sore and stiff.I still go out for walks but only little ones to free me up but then I have a nap and seize up again. So mum tried adjusting one of my litter trays which has helped but not totally successfully as well sometimes I lift my bottom a bit to high and well it goes over the top…..well you know when your back is turned you can’t see where you’re aiming right?Hehehehe well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

Any way Mummy ordered me some Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil as a lot of people use it one their pets for helping with this sort of thing and Humans use it for similar pains and other conditions. Now before anybody says anything this isn’t made from the illegal drug cannabis and marijuana, it’s made from the Hemp plant which is a different plant that doesn’t contain the illegal stuff but Hemp is a related species of plant without the illegal stuff.Which means we can all use it legally for lots of ailments. And the best bit is it’s completely natural and keeps the body and tummy balanced unlike Metacam from the vets….so no long term side effects for me! I have been having a drop mixed with water each day since Tuesday and I feel much happier, I’m not so sore and so much more active! I even want to come out and play with mummy and daddy like I used to and keep wanting to go out in the garden to play as well. And Mummy gave me back my other litter tray to try again. Mummy did say she might lower the front for me if she can because I do prefer my normal tray rather than my blue one, but we will see how I do for now cause that is going to be tricky to lower as the plastic is thicker. Any way here is some more photos of my last walk at Buckland abbey with Mummy.

Happy Hoppy Easter Guest Selfies

Hi Everyone first I have to say sorry for not being around as much as we should have this week but in a moment you will so why.Now its Easter so Happy Hoppy Easter to you all!

 Now on to our guest Selfie and the story behind the Guest……….

This is the Guest…Say hello to Tiny Tim it may be a boy or a girl we don’t know and we believe its a baby Robin about 80% sure on that.Daddy found it in the middle of a road shaking with the cold weak and starving.He watched to see if the parents would come for ages but they didn’t so he found some worms and gave them to the baby and then watched some more but still no parents there were Rooks eying it up so Daddy decide that in the end he couldn’t leave it as it was too vulnerable to either being breakfast for the Rooks or being run over by a car so he brought it home.It was very cold dad warmed it up and fed it at home till mummy came home from work….

This was a few hours later after mum had come home and fed it a bit more already looking better compared to when dad first brought it home on Thursday.

This was Friday afternoon when mummy came home from work she sat outside in the garden with Tiny Tim so it could get so exercise to strengthen its legs and wings.It sat here for a while and then had a bit of a run around in the flowerbed.

Now Tiny Tim needed to be fed every hour with worms and mealworms during daylight hours but Mummy would feed it early in the morning around 4.30am before she went to work to keep it going till later when daddy would start feeding and then mummy would take over till she went to bed.Tiny Tim was trying to fly but couldn’t but Mummy knew it needed to go to a rehabber so she managed to find one.

These were taken early Saturday morning as you can see Tiny Time has more feathers and has completely recovered from is ordeal.A few more days and Tiny Time will have tail feathers and will be ready to fly so Mummy made lots of phone calls to find a rehabber to get Tiny Tim ready for release and teach it how to fend for itself.Lunchtime yesterday Tiny Tim went to the rehabbers.So it was time to say goodbye to Tiny Tim….

But we do have to say we miss having Tiny Tim around and listening to its little quiet chirps to say it was hungry and it jumping out of the box wanting to sit on mummys shoulder so it could see everything….Tiny Tim was happiest sitting on mum while she was on the pc and this is partly why it had to go to a rehabber before it got too humanised.And because Mummy doesn’t have the time to give it to teach it to find its own food as we are having a holiday soon.Mummy said if it wasn’t for the Holiday then She would have found the time to do it all herself.However Tiny Tim left for the rehabbers in good shape for its next stage in life and that is what matters.So now You see what has kept us so busy our temporary “Easter Chick Tiny Tim”

Easter Sunday Selfies With The Cat on My Head

Sunday Selfies on Monday!

I know we are a day late…..well we were expecting Mr Mickey the Hedgehog to come home Yesterday but due to the weather his return has been delayed but its warming up in a couple of days so it should be later this week!There has been a lot of action with our 2 visiting hedgehogs Reggie and the other one which we think may be a girl cause Reggie keeps trying to romance her but well she’s not having any of it so we will see but for now we shall call her Lola.We will up load some movies in the week for you all to see!

Mummy has been busy working as she now has a new part time job as an in house pet blogger for toypetreview.com this is her first post if you want to take a look,so on top of her normal job she’s having to shuffle a bit with her time.

Any way here’s me on another adventure last week….after all that’s what you really want to see!

Mum had to carry me up to the top!
