Saturday 4 November 2023


 Hello Blogville its your one and only gossip bunny with all her ponderings on this day. Today is November 4th...known as Blog4Peace. I have to wonder how we furbabies can influence the humans that we share this world with, How we can get them to be more peaceful, to take care of one and other and look after this beautiful world that we are so blessed to live in? I'm lucky that my human parents already do their bit. They look after the wildlife that come to visit us or even live in our garden. They also look after the bit of land that we call home so that it is a haven for all of us if only everyone in this whole world did their bit we would all live in a better place....

Angel Speedy would Blog4Peace every year to spread the word, the movement that is Blog4Peace...he was a wise, yet fun loving gentleman Bunny. I know he would join me and you in our quest to make this world a better place....

Just as I know that Little Louie and Jo-Jo the crow wish that we could all join together and make this world a better place. Just know that all of us here love every single one of you even though we may not always say it.... xoxo Little Miss Titch

News and new Looks from Little Miss Titch

 Hello Blogville it's your one and only gossip bunny with all the latest from my neck of the woods...As you can see we've done a few changes to the look of my blog now that Autumn is truly here and with a little help thanks to Aunty Ann over at Zoolatry she made 2 new Headers for me to use

I thought I would use the Top one for now as it is a bit more in keeping with the time of year and of course Little Louie and Jo-Jo is on it too but I love both headers...So Thank You Aunty Ann, you're amazing.

The weather here has been a bit screwed up here after having more autumnal weather we jumped back to summer with a little heat wave and this weekend we're about to jump in to full on autumn and may be a little wintry depending on where one is in the UK with snow up in the highlands of scotland and frosty but dry everywhere else. I did manage to go on a little adventure during the heat wave...

I'm not sure what Little Louie will think of the weather when he comes home....Where's Little Louie you ask?  Well he's back up the vets with Lungworm and Roundworm having treatment and The vet has decided after talking to a hedgehog hospital to do surgery on his blind eye and remove it so he doesn't injure it again so he will be staying up at the vets for the time being while he's having his treatment and surgery. Mummy has to ring on Friday to get an update on how he is but for now here are some photo's that mum took after weighing him this week....

And what about Jo-Jo you ask? Well she has been coming around most days some days twice in a day. She likes Little Louie's food so she tries to get it out of the food station so mum gives her the bowl so she can help herself to what she wants...

And what about Mum you ask? Well She is still decorating the Lounge, she said its slow going because she has to do a bit at a time which means moving furniture, then striping the wallpaper off the wall and then fixing the wall so its good enough to paint ,she has even had to plaster some of it too. But she did say it would be finished in time to put all the christmas stuff up and then you will all be in for a surprise when you see the big reveal! So that's all the news for now until we get an up date on Little Louie

International Rabbit Awareness Day 23/9/23

 Hello Blogville its you one and only Gossip Bunny bringing you all the latest news from our neck of the woods....

Did you know the this Saturday is International Rabbit Awareness Day? Well it is. This is a special day for all things Bunny

Aunty Ann from Zoolatry made this just for this special day! She is and Miss June are just fabulous!

Anyway did you know that Rabbits are the 3rd most popular pet after dogs and cats? But we are one of the hardest to look after too which is why we often end up being neglected,and not looked after properly to then end up being "Set Free". Being "Set Free" is not a kindness its a death sentence for Domestic Rabbits, we don't have the knowledge or skills to survive living wild and will often only last a few weeks or a few months if we are lucky. But if we are very lucky some kind human will save us and rescue us from such a sad fate.

So if you choose to adopt a rabbit please learn as much as you can on how to care for us,what to feed us. Find a vet who is an expert in rabbits and exotic animals, get us vaccinated, neutered or spayed. And give us the room to run around and jump and we will reward you with loyalty, trust and our love just like any dog or cat. But also remember not all Bunnies are like me and Angel Speedy who like to go on adventures using a harness and leash, most Bunnies like to stay at home in their safe environment spending time with their human families.

                  Bunnies Make The Best Pets if we are looked after properly....Just Saying!

Little Louie...Oh Little Louie what are we to do?

 Hello Blogville it's your one and only gossip Bunny with all the trials and tribulations from our neck of the woods!

 I know it's been a month since I last posted but well Mummy has been busy doing some decorating...well she still has lots to do on that front so no point in going on about that. But also we have been trying to help Little Louie adapt plus Mummy rescued another Hedgehog. The poor thing had a MacDonald's Ice cream cup lid around its neck and it was cutting deep into its neck. Mummy grabbed him and cut the horrible thing of its neck but there was a deep wound which was infected so Mummy took him to the vets the next day. Mummy Named him Prickles, He was so lucky that he didn't end up with fly strike because we were having a very hot spell after weeks of rubbish weather... 

You can see the groove around the neck from where the cup lid was. Mummy does have a photo of the wound but it's too graphic to post here but it's safe to say Prickles was lucky to be alive. After a week and a half of intensive care from our vets....who are great by the way and care from Mummy Prickles was healed up enough to be released back to the wild....

Here's Prickles going into a nest box to snooze until dark and he is still hanging around the front garden and doing very well.

And then there is Little Louie...What are we going to do about Little Louie? 

Well Little Louie is going out mainly at night but he is also still exploring in the mornings until 9 or 10 o'clock so as things stand there is no way he can be released. As we were having a hot spell Mummy used it as an opportunity to let Louie roam the garden at night to learn but because she was working and he hadn't learnt how to get back into the greenhouse Mummy would have to lock him in the greenhouse when she came down for breakfast to keep him safe while she was working. But Monday was the start of her days off so she has been teaching him how to get back into the greenhouse and she also but a block of wood near the entrance to help guide him to the location of the door....It worked so he comes and goes as he pleases now but he is still active in the mornings during daylight hours. Mummy has had to rescue Louie a couple of times after he got himself stuck and one time he was scratching a the back door looking for Mummy cause he was a little lost,Mummy opened the door and he saw her and then turned and fell down the steps so Mummy had to pick him up to check him over but had the door been open we are sure he would have come inside the kitchen...Silly Louie.

So then Mummy made a food Station out in the back garden to use and finally after a couple of days Louie figured out how to use it. The one thing Little Louie doesn't like is heavy rain*giggles* I can't say I blame him.When it is really chucking it down Louie tends to stay in the green house. So now Mummy is just waiting to see if he will stop being active in day time hours because he would be too vulnerable to go back to the wild and wouldn't be able to cope with the dangers of being out in the day. But the reality is it's looking unlikely that Louie will improve any more than he has

And what about me? Well I'm doing ok and I like to go and see if Louie is out in the garden and say hello to him, he can be a bit grumpy at times but he seems to be ok with me too. 

These are from my last outing with Mummy at South Molton, it was a great time at the beach even though it did end up raining so we left to get some lunch. I've never been to this beach before but apparently Angel Speedy came here quite a few times

As you can see Angel Speedy Visited South Molton too! Well that's all for now...

A Funny old week

 Hello Blogville it's your one and only Gossip Bunny with all the latest from my neck of the woods. You know this week has been a funny old week going from chilly stormy weather to warm humid showery to warm humid dry days and then back to cooler wet and showery days. Now supposedly it is forecast to get better for a few days this coming week but that keeps changing from a nice whole week to just half a week and going back to rain by the end of the week, so we will see how that plays out.

Little Louie went to the vets this week to get his right eye checked as it didn't look normal. The long and the short of it is that when he was found the eye must have been injured and then with the mange and fly strike it has been permanently damaged and he is completely bling in that eye as for his left eye well that one looks normal but Hedgehogs can't see that well. Basically they are very short sighted and rely mainly on their sense of smell and hearing. but They are nocturnal so they do need to see the difference between daylight and nighttime so that they aren't out during the day when they are vulnerable to birds, cars and other dangers. Little Louie keeps coming out in the day and not much at night so he has been in the greenhouse for the last couple of days to try and get him to switch to being active at night and sleeping during the day so far that isn't happening. And he's had to learn the lay out of the greenhouse and was bumping into things because of his impaired vision. So now he is running about all day from when it gets light to about 8.30pm in the evening before going to bed which is not good. But its only been a couple of days so Mummy said we have to give him more time to adjust but if he doesn't adjust we may not be able to release him fully to the wild and that he may have to stay in the back garden or we find someone who has a safe enclosed garden to live in. But for now it is a waiting game to see if he adjust back to a normal keep your fingers crossed for Little Louie because we want him to be fully wild.

Yesterday was my dads Birthday and Jo-Jo the crow came up to see us and wish daddy a happy birthday. Mummy's friend who looks after her told her to come up and visit and to wish daddy a happy birthday. Dad was so happy because Jo-Jo hasn't been up for a while. She is still Molting so still looks a bit scruffy but she has grown, she look really big now. She's such a beautiful bird.

Mummy has started cutting back the bushes in the garden now that the birds have stopped nesting and she's shifting furniture in the lounge so she can carry on stripping wallpaper and start painting and me well I have just been going out in the garden in between showers so that's all for now

It's a Funny time of year

 Hello Blogville it's your one and only Gossip Bunny with all her latest ponderings and one of those ponderings is about keeping in touch with you all which has of late been rather sporadic at best! It's time to get busy and share more with you, to share more if the little things that wander through my little head even if it seems a little silly....

With that in mind I have decided that it's a funny time of year, what with funny weather consisting of storms, rain and on the odd day when it's nicer the mornings start off decidedly chilly when it should be a bit warmer and a bit nicer. The children are off school and there are plenty of Holiday makers around. Even lots from Europe seeking respite from their extremely hot weather when we would like a little bit of the warmth here. Can you believe it European Holiday makers are come here to see the rain? The mind boggles at that thought.

Mummy is off work this week with some of her vacation time so she will be busy decorating lounge on rubbish days and gardening on the dry days...The birds have finished nesting so it's time to trim all the bushes back. With all the rain everything has grown wild and huge along with the grass needs cutting again both that becomes a jungle again. With all the rain we have had mummy has only been able to cut it 3 or 4 times instead of every couple of weeks.

Little Louie is moaning about the chillier nights so only comes out to eat at night a few times and then tucks up in his bed till it warms up a bit later in the day and then snacks on and off through the day when he should be sleeping. Mummy doesn't want to put the heat pad in his hutch because he will be going in the green house when he gets a little bigger and his fur has grown back so it's better for him to stay used to the natural temperatures. Plus it's up and down with the temperatures and even with the chilly nights it's still not really cold enough to put the heat mat on so she keeps adding nesting material to his bed instead. He is growing but at the moment he's playing catch up to get to the weight he should have been when he was found so most of his energy is getting back to a healthy weight. But he is still Little.

And me well I just want to be able to get out in my garden and get out exploring on adventures hopefully this week I will get to do those things, Mummy said the weather should be a little better so keep your paws crossed for me cause I think I'm going to need a bit of luck from you all for that...

Where Has Miss Summer Gone? Part 2

 Hello Blogville it's your one and only gossip bunny with all her latest adventures and wondering thoughts on where Miss Summer has gone. As I said yesterday May came and for the most part was lovely, then June came in very warm even hot at times.I would spend every day in the garden or going on some adventure depending on how hot each day was. And then July came wet, windy and wild with below average temperatures. It's now August and so for we have had very little change, we're due more wet, windy and wild weather over the weekend again and as for the long term I'm not going to hold my breath for any improvement. Miss Summer has abandoned us here and Miss Autumn has taken up residence in her place, I'm just waiting for the leaves to start dropping early now. Mum Said that Mr El nino is play games with us all and he's not playing nice!

So here are a couple of adventures I have had just from a couple of odd dry days....Starting with a little bit of fun and Shaugh Prior by the river

Then on another day we went to Badgersholt at Dartmeet

And lastly Tuesday we went to Buckfast Abbey where I was aloud in the Abbey Church in my stroller though mum didn't take any photos of me in there so not to draw attention to me and upset anyone we also had a spot of lunch at the restaurant too...

So that has been my July...Mu has even started decorating the lounge because the weather has been awful which she was going to start in the Autumn...Yep Miss Autumn has taken up residence here!
