Jack had to go back to the vet and stay over for 2 days. The would where his eye had been removed had started to bleed and it was causing him a great deal of pain.
Blood samples were taken and were mercy fully normal so no worries there.
He was given a course of antibiotics and we were told to try using a cold compress to help reduce the swelling.


He seems to be returning to normal now.

Been the owner of our wee rescue cat, we named her Holly, for about a year now. She had been treated awfully by her previous owner, but took to us instantly, abd suffered from atrocious anxiety. Now she’s a firm part of the family and loved by everyone locally. Adopt, don’t buy whenever possible.

Adopt, don’t buy whenever possible.

Excellent advice - loads of animals out there, with various rescues, in need of a good home. One of the reasons our house has 11 guinea pigs at the moment...was 12 up until recently (nearly 20 overall in the last almost 4 years)

Unfortunately we lost the legend that was Frisbee, an older piggie we took in back in April following the death of his brother. His previous owner didn't want to take on a new younger pig and knew that Frisbee needed company and we jumped at the chance. As he was well over 5, we decided he was too old for the snip so we couldn't pair him up with any of our existing sows but we kept him alongside Scarlet (who lost her own male companion around the same time) and the two of them were perfect together.

When we became aware that he may be on the way out, we took down the divide between them and let them have some time together knowing that he didn't have the energy to get busy with her....and within minutes this was them (Frizz on the left)



Gonna miss the little bugger.

Guinea pigs are great. We lost one earlier this year and adopted a long-hair to keep the survivor company. Despite the extra work of taming that mane, he's settled in nicely with no squabbles. Just doesn't like running outside of the cage, so the other one does laps around him...

With only one ageing cat left from our rescue-splurge of two decades ago, we fostered a new one the other week.  Starting out as a runt with partial alopecia coming from a feral litter, Wulf has fitted right in, remorselessly bullying our lurcher (whose head alone is twice his size) and quickly buddying up with his 19-year-old deaf and partially blind foster brother. Reckon he's a keeper. Bloody cats.
