Weekend Plans and for the next few weeks

Well Looks like We have Spring weather finally so Mum had a hearty breakfast
And I had mine too...
Then I had a bit of this...
As it was very windy outside I stayed inside.But today is a different day the wind has dropped so mum is doing some projects in the garden.All the wind,rain and winter storms we have had has taken its toll on the fencing so it needs a bit of TLC.Mum wants to plant out all the plants she has in pots because she says there are to many and she wants to improve the drainage in the bottom of the garden so that means putting the honey suckles,the bay tree bush,a fancy acer that is pot bound and the apple tree in the ground to drink all the water up plus lots of other plants.She also wants to try some carrots,and some runner beans down there and some tomatoes and may be some other veggie bits, plus some herbs and so pepper she has already started in the kitchen for a herb garden in one of the pots she will free up.she figures she just as well concentrate on the garden if she is going to be stuck at home a lot for the next couple of months.

Don't worry we will still go to people free spots in the countryside to break the cabin fever and stretch our legs.
The Hedgehogs are doing well with Hogmite living in the front garden and chowing down there.Pup is still in the back garden in the greenhouse as it is still cold at night but her heat pad is slowly being turned down with the hope to turn it off at the end of the week and at some point over the next few weeks if the weather holds mum said she will find a nice sheltered spot in the back garden for her box and then she can go where ever she likes.So that's what we are up to for now while we are in partial lock down across the country.Mum will still be working as she is a key worker and is helping to feed the country thought she did say that with all the panic buying everybody is doing they shouldn't need any more for a few weeks...but no people are still panic buying and some are just being horrible to the staff where she works because the shelves keep being stripped bare and they are having trouble getting stock to fill the shelves....So she just smiles but she won't put up with bad behavior from those people who are horrible,she's a tough cookie my mum.Anyway I hope your lockdowns with your peeps is going well so stay safe everyone!

Apparently it is supposed to be Spring?!!

Well apparently it is supposed to be Spring now....Well I can't see her,feel her or smell her....So where is she?We have had rain...not warm rain but cold rain since September and its still doing it...I am so bored with it now.Even the Hedgehogs are bored with it.Hogmite moved out of the greenhouse again so mum move his box to the front garden cause he's been hanging around out there so now last night he moved back into the greenhouse into Pup's empty box...Go figure!Anyway mum said she's not moving his box again as he will move out of the greenhouse as soon as the weather gets better and if need be she can release Pup from the greenhouse in her hutch by leaving the big door open on the hutch.Mum said the forecast for next week is the same as this week but it looks like the week after is going to dry up a bit so she things Hogmite will move out again,she also said his hormones will kick in and he will start to think about all the ladies out there so he will go off gallivanting what ever that means!Anyway yes Pup is home from the rehab lady and has settled in nicely to her hutch and is eating well,we just need better weather to get her ready for release!

Anyway since its supposed to be Spring here's a photo from last Spring....

All systems are go!

5 4 3 2 1 All systems are go!! Yes finally Mummy is happy,the PC is back!All newly rebuilt with pretty much everything inside all a brand new PC only not completely.

Anyway we have News on the Hedgehog front.Pup's mum has come back after her 2nd half winter sleep, and she's moved back into her nest box in the front garden. Hogmite paid a visit to the front garden and well got shoved about by Pup's mum but he's still living in the greenhouse so here is last nights footage....

And well I'm still here same as usual staying indoors out of the wet and the wind....

On the other side of storm Denis

Phew I'm glad that's nearly  over,Denis is pushing away now, its still wet and windy out but not like it was. We're still with out a PC as it is in the middle of being rebuilt so we're relegated to still using the tablet so we can't do links....and with that in mind you need to pay a visit to my Facebook page  with there is a link some where on my side bar of my blog,because mummy managed to upload some new videos of Hogmite the male juvenile the was released  from the greenhouse that you really need to see.
Hogmite had been roaming about doing what hedgehogs do. He would occasionally stop by for a snack in the front garden food station  but not the greenhouse  and after we got hit by the previous storm Ciara  last weekend  and it being wet and windy on and off all week, Hogmite decided to check the greenhouse out on Wednesday night. He enjoy  a meal and drink from there and in the front garden food station  and trundled  off,Thursday night he came back and moved back in to his old nest box and  he is still  there  after eating all the food in the greenhouse. He did go out a couple of times but wasn't keen on the storm as it spooked  him a bit and well it was horrible last night so he stayed in there  dry most of the time. He has lost a  little weight  and picked up a couple of ticks but otherwise looks  in good shape.  We are very happy to have Hogmite back.
Pup is at a local  rehab  as her weight was still going up and down  and sometimes she wouldn't  eat so she is there to figure out what is going on with her for a couple of weeks. The  rahab seems to think she may not  have been  quite  warm enough so the hospital  hutch in the shed has had some extra insulation  added ready for Pup to come back.
Any way we are all ok so here's  a little photo of me!

Sunday Selfies....Update with the Hotel Speedy!

It's Sunday again and well I'm kind of over winter now,not that its been winter really.It's just been wet really either cold and wet or milder but wet with just a couple of frosty days.Everything is just mud and yet more mud.The ground is so soaked it squelches! So now I want Spring to come and the rain to go away!So we can have this....

Pup finished her course of Lung worm injections on Wednesday and her weight stabilised at around 580g ,not moving just staying the same and then all of a sudden she started to eat more and Mum weighed her on Friday and she gained 25g over night so went up to 605g.Pup is still eating more now but mum didn't get the chance to weigh her yesterday so she will do it today when she cleans Pups Hutch out.Pup will stay in the Hutch on the heat pad where mum can keep a close eye on her and can adjust the temperature of the heat pad with the weather so if it goes a bit colder it can be upped a bit and dropped back if milder like it is at the moment.Plus Mum needs to check her weight because the lungworm could come back in a couple of weeks as new eggs can hatch out.Mum had a sample of Pups Poop sent off to a special wild life hospital and it came back clear so its now about keeping Pup warm and checking her weight and food in take.If everything keeps going the way it is in a few weeks when Spring is here she can go back in to the greenhouse to get used to the back garden and then released to the front a bit later on....well that's the get Pup back to being a proper Hedgehog doing what they do by May.

Now for stuff about me!Can you believe that tomorrow is my 8th Gotcha Day!?? Me neither! 8 Years ago on the 3rd of February my parents went looking for me and Brought me home that very same day!Where does the time fly?!So I think a little party is in order Tomorrow Don't You?So Join me tomorrow where we can relive some of my past adventures and have a few snacks and may be a few Carrotini's!

Hello are you there?So much to catch up on!

Gosh what whirl wind of a few days....Sorry we haven't been around we had PC problems with our operating system but its all sorted now but blogging is just to much faffing when you only have a tablet or phone to use.

We have had horrid weather too over the weekend strong winds at times rain and Hailstones!And feeling ever so cold so we haven't been anywhere.Mummy is still fixing up the bathroom cause well you know the story you start a job and well you run in to problems.So I have been lounging about a bit with everything going on.

And well Hogmite left us which is fine cause he was a big boy at nearly 800g. Mum has been leaving food and water in the food station in the front garden and in the greenhouse in case Hogmite decides it's to hard out there and wants to come back.But Pup well after having her Antibiotics well she started to gain weight then we had a cold snap....which is still cold I might add and she started losing weight again so mummy decide Pup needed to be kept warm so she is in our new Hospital Hutch on a nice heat pad in the shed to keep her warm.

 And she still lost more weight so another trip to the vets yesterday.Pup has to go back today and tomorrow as they started her on a course of lung worm treatment which also treats other parasites and depending on how she responds to the injections depends on whether she needs more antibiotics or more injections.The good news is Pup did eat more last night so lets keep our fingers and paws crossed for her!

Sunday Selfies with Me!

I thought it was time to get back to doing my selfies again this week, as cute as Pup our female hedgehog is this is my blog and after all it is supposed to be about Me! Well I took 2 today the first one is from this morning...I was taking it easy....
And the 2nd one is from a little outing this afternoon,we finally have some dry sunny weather....but it is oh so cold.Its frosty in the mornings till lunch time and even then in shady places the frost and ice is not melting.....
And just a little update on Pup as mum checked her weight yesterday and she has gained she is now 617g which is an increase of 17g and a full week is not over yet.Mum is keeping a close eye on Pup as its so cold at night and we really don't want Pup to go into hibernation just yet after been poorly.Mums new heat pad is on stand by and in case of emergency we have a storage box to use and Mum has a special hospital Hutch being delivered Tuesday.Mum was busy cleaning and moving stuff in the shed to make room for either the storage box or the new hutch when its delivered and she has been busy in the house decorating too....I was lucky she found time to take me out today!

Guest Selfies today!

Hi Ya ,Today we have a guest selfie....We have Pup the Hedgehog making an appearance....

The reason Pup was out of her nest box with mummy is,Pup has been poorly last week she lost some weight and wasn't eating quite as much as she normally would.Plus her poops are a bit off.So she had another visit to the vets Tuesday and it looked like she still had a little bit of mange so they gave her another injection at a higher dose and they gave her a 10 day course of antibiotics for the poops.Well mum weighed her 2 days ago and she had still lost a bit of weight but not at the same rate as last week and today mum weighed her again and she only lost 1 or 2 grams so she is stabilising and it looks like she is eating more too.Fingers and Paws crossed she stops losing and starts to gain weight again.On a plus side Mum said Pup is being a real trooper with taking her antibiotics and seems to turn around to climb on mummy for snuggles and warmth so no curling up and stabbing mummy with her spines except for when mummy has to take her out of her nest box....Mummy said gardening gloves are a must for that but she can't wear them when giving Pup her meds by syringe so it good she isn't scared of mummy and trusts her.

Sunday Selfies Announcement....My Favourite 3 from my Christmas and Holiday Countdown

We took a few days off cause mum had to work Thursday and Friday and well I also had to decide which entries were my favourite 3 in my Christmas and Holiday Countdown......So here they are!
We have Katie from Savannah's cute does she look!
We have Hailey and Zaphod from The Hailey and Zaphod Chronicles with their Hanukkah themed upside down tree.
And we have Teddy bun with his little tree.....again so cute!
So there you have it my favourite 3!Mum will be contacting you all for addresses so she can send you all your little gifts from me you very own Santa Speedy!

On a sad note Mummy rescued an adult Hedgehog on Monday before New Year...
He was Very Poorly But sadly he crossed the rainbow bridge on New Years Eve.He was under stress and really didn't know what he was doing and wouldn't curl up when she picked him up,Mum rushed him to the vets and they tried to save him but it was to late.Had mummy found him sooner then maybe he could have been saved.So RIP little man sorry we could save you.

So I'm now wishing for Spring and Summer to hurry along and with that in mind here's one of me from last summer!
