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...

  2. Your mom does such a wonderful job with those little hedgehogs she finds. We think Louie found the perfect home and is happy for all the help he can get. It looks like you enjoyed your outing to the beach too, Titch.

  3. We sure hope Louis learns to be the nocturnal creature he's supposed to be, but we know what ever happens, he'll be safe with you, taking such good care of him.

    We hope you get to go on some cool bunny adventures, Miss Titch. That does look like a great beach, too bad it rained....

  4. It's nice to see you sweet Titch! Hey, the 23rd of September is International Rabbit Day. You're Mum sure takes care of Louie and we're so glad she is there to help him out when he needs it.

  5. Maybe Louie will eventually learn how to be a proper hedgehog.
