The Case of The Prickly Guest Continues

 Hello Blogville its you one and only Gossip Bunny with the Latest news on the Prickly Guest.

So the case continues with mummy checking in on our prickly guest who has a name now as daddy likes to name them....Roddy. We still have no idea on whether Roddy is a girl or a boy but daddy still say he or she is called Roddy. 

The bad news is Mummy found runny poop in the hutch this morning and she saw some yesterday too but managed to get enough for a sample to be looked at. Mummy thought Roddy had an internal parasite problem so she took Roddy to the vet with the sample and left Roddy there so that they could give a good check over and check the sample. After Speaking to the Vets this afternoon it turns out the Roddy has a high parasite burden...Lungworm and roundworm but also that they suspect Fluke as well though that one is hard to diagnose. So Roddy has started treatments and has to stay at the vets for 48 hours as this is the critical time for a poorly hedgehog and well expelling parasites can be tough on them and Roddy could go either way. But the good news is Roddy although small because of being so young has a lot going for him/her as Roddy wasn't dehydrated and well fed with some reserves which should help. If Roddy makes it through the next 48 hours then he/she can come home to convalesce and continue with treatments with Mummy to take care of him/her. So Roddy needs all of our Power of The Paw to help him/her to start getting better and to keep fighting so he/she can come home and that's where you all come in....Send Roddy lots of POTP he needs it

The case of the prickly guest

 Hello Blogville it the latest gossip from your one and only Gossip Bunny!

When is it okay to have a cuddle cut short at bedtime? I'm not sure such a thing exists but here we are pondering the cause that make it okay. For these ponderings we must start at the beginning. And the beginning was last night when mummy brought me in for a cuddle and dad decided to look out the window a our front garden. 1o minutes into my cuddle dad is excitedly looking out the window telling mummy to come take a look at a small hedgehog in front garden.

Mummy at that point jumped out of the bed with me in her arms and stuck her head out of the window next thing she's saying something along the lines " No good too small, it has to come in" and then I was dumped in to my night pen as she is running down the stairs in her PJ's I might add!

Imagine my mummy running down the stair like a crazy person down the stair in her PJ's and struggling to get her shoes one as she is going out the door. It turns out that it was a juvenile Hedgehog one that Mummy and daddy has been looking out for because they were worried that it wouldn't survive the winter. The reason was because its mother had stopped coming for food as have the rest of the big ones with the likely hood of them going off for their winter Sleep...Hibernation. And the little one was only coming sporadically.

Anyway Mummy Scooped it up and fumbled with the shed key to get in so that she could turn on the heat pad in her Hospital hutch to keep warm and gave it food and water she was doing this while she had the little hedgehog in one hand and using her free hand to do everything else. Then about 3am she woke up and went down to check on him or her as we don't know the sex as yet and all the food was gone and half the water. she topped up the food and then left him or her to it. 

This afternoon she was down there cleaning our Prickly guest out as he or she had made a bit of a mess by  way of pooping and peeing. and then she scooped it out of its warm bed to weigh it and give a visual check. Seems our guest weighs only 377g which is quite small but it had no tics or fleas that she could see so she pooped it back into its warm bed but she said depending on what she finds tomorrow she could be taking our prickly guest to the vet for a check over...


So it seems that sometimes a cuddle can be cut short especially for a Prickly Guest!

Until we can update on our guest its time for me to get some extra cuddles

A little Sneaky preview of holiday fun

 Hello Blogville its your one and only gossip Bunny with all my latest wanderings. I thought I would share a little snippet of Christmas cheer...Yes I know that some of you will be thinking its to early but Thanksgiving is just around the corner in the US on the 24th and it is only 35 days till Christmas Eve when the big man in the red suit makes his long journey across the skies.

So is it to early....I say no. Mummy will be getting the real tree next week and she will be decorating the house with all things Christmasy and she has already started taking me on some Christmasy outings too. So with that in mind I thought I would share with you a little snippet from our little outing to Endsleigh Garden Center




Don't worry there is more to come over the coming days and I can't wait to share it with you all

Funny ole thing the Weather

 Hello Blogville, Its time for your latest ponderings from your one and only Gossip Bunny!

Its a funny thing the Weather. We spend an awful lot of time pondering on that changeable thing called the weather. One minute its sunny and warm in the middle of summer the next minute we're in autumn heading to winter and its raining cats and dogs and then we get the freak weather events from very warm sunny days when it should be cold, to cold days when it should be warm and then the big storms that roll in with those high winds rain, thunder, lightening and hail, to even getting snow storms. The weather is always being talked about.


Just this weekend we had some very mild days and we even had some sun but before that it was getting cold and wet. Mummy and me manage to get out on a cold day as the rain had stopped for a bit. The forecast said it was about 14 Celsius but actually it was closer to 10. For the yesterday the forecast said 15 yet actually it was 17 Celsius. Even the Weather forecasters can't seem to get it right....I sometimes wonder if it would just be better to stick our heads outside each morning to see what the weather is doing rather than checking the forecast because quite often it will say one thing when in reality the weather is doing the opposite...


So Blow a big fat raspberry to the weather forecasters and just see for yourselves is a plan to follow or should we just check it just to be sure? Who Knows what is the best thing to do, I just know The weather give's us all something to talk and ponder about. What do you think do?

                            Until next time xoxo Little Miss Titch

Sunday Ponderings on a Monday

 Hello Blogville its your latest ponderings from your one and only Gossip Bunny!

Well Friday was a nice day and I got to go out with Mum to the local Christmas Food and Craft Fair at Buckland Abbey after Mum got home from work. Unfortunately She forgot to take some photos so I can't show you, Such a shame as its horrible ever since weather wise. But I did get to see everything from the craft stalls to the food stalls, I met a few people how had Bunnies for pets and they were amazed at seeing me in my Stroller taking in the sights. and then I even got to have a run around  on part of the walking trails with a nice view of the Tamer Bridge over the river in the distance.

After being stuck indoors again Saturday due to the weather by Sunday I was Moody, Mum had to work in the morning so that left me home with Dad and well he just wasn't good enough. Have you ever felt like that? Do you ever get days like that? Where you just need that one person who is able to be there. I sometimes wonder that even though I love my dad and love having him all to myself there are just days when I just want my mum. When I am in a mood she just knows what I need and yesterday she knew just what I needed. After she got changed she grabbed my cube tent and my 3 way tunnel and put them out for me and she played with me and gave me cuddles...it was perfect.

I just wonder how does she do that? I think she must have some Super Power to know exactly what I need without me telling her. Do you have a parent that has a similar Super Power? Enquiring Minds would like to know... do you have a dad like this or is it just a mum power?



                     Enjoy my Video that my mum took yesterday and keep well until next time!

Peaceful Ponderings From Little Miss Titch for Blog4peace

 Hello Blogville its your latest pondering from you one and only Gossip Bunny.

Today is the 4th of November Blog4 Peace and I have to wonder do we really make a difference by Blogging for peace every year. My Predecessor Angel Speedy would join in every year and Last Year was my very first outing for this event. Have things Gotten any better? I would have to say no. We still have Covid rearing its ugly head but now we have a war in the Ukraine and now the world is also going into recession making things tougher for all especially those less well off. Life is getting tougher for all of us whether we are human or animals. Wild life is in decline with pollution on the increase Things are getting worse....

But There is hope too...Just a spark. That Spark we all are trying to fan in to a blaze that can spread across the world. Those of us that Blog4Peace do our bit to fan that Spark into the blaze to inspire Peace and Hope to all corners of the world, in the hopes that one day we will all truly live in Peace and in harmony. So the Answer is yes we do make a difference its just This year it is a little harder to see.

Join Me and Angel Speedy in Blogging 4 Peace and fan that Spark of Hope in to a Blaze!
