The Ferrets Return!

Hi Ho Woofers!

It's Us Again!

Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Mr Brambles!

All back home again and sniffin' out any changes in the 'House Sniffs'!

Holly and I were out first thing checking the Sea Shore for new stuff an' sniffs. No rabbits this time but we were a bit late in getting out today!

OTL got hold of a couple of miniature Camcorders that are small enough to hang on our collars, so first thing I was selected to try out this 'Daisy Cam'!

..........are you Sure it Turned On?
Wot a load of rubbish!

Look! No Camera's on Meee!
OTL has got to do some work on mounting the thing properly 'cos hanging it from my collar, under my chin was a bad decision!

This needs Re Engineering!
 We spotted a Curlew out on the mud and told it to 'Stand Still' while I took it's picture!

This is my best side!
All you could see on the camera was my feet, my whiskers under my chin and a load of other stuff that we couldn't make sense of!

Better luck next time OTL!

After our walk it was straight off to collect Snowflake and Mr Brambles. We stayed in the car when we got there 'cos there was a couple of big ugly looking dogs down the other end of the garden and we didn't fancy discussing who had 'Rights' in the garden!

OTL went in and opened the cage door only to have both Mr Brambles and Snowflake jump into his arms for a cuddle and Snowflake even licked OTL on his chin to show how pleased she was to see him again!

Mr Brambles snuggled down and licked OTL's hand and asked if it was time to go yet!

Pretty soon Snowy Heights was dismantled and put in the back of the car, the ferrets were strapped into the back of the car and we were heading down the road towards home!

Once home, both ferrets went potty! They were jumping up and down all over the place Dooking or as OTL calls it 'Chuckling', you could definitely see that they were pleased to be back!

 Next OTL did the 'Kit Inspection' which involves us animals submitting to a close inspection of all of our body and legs and ears and tummy and tails and feet and teeth!

He does this every time we have been in 'Dangerous Places' such as were we are likely to pick up things like ticks or fleas and nasties like that!

It was when he was checking Mr Brambles that he spotted a lump with a scab on top!

After cleaning it he saw it was a lump with what looked like two puncture marks on top!

Even closer inspection found another small one!

That was it, not sure about what he was looking at, OTL telephoned the vet and in no time flat there we were outside the vets.

I stayed in the car well outside the vets 'cos there is no way I'm going in that place because of my 'Blue Coat Syndrome'!

Well, the result was this, 'No tick bite, no insect bite but it looks like a wart that he must have picked at or Snowflake might have nibbled at!

While he was there OTL got them to put on some anti flea stuff onto their shoulders, just in case.

That was it, all we had after that was OTL crying at the vets bill!

To compound it all, OTL stopped off at Tesco's to get us some chicken and treat the ferrets to a carton of Lactose Free milk which I'm sure they will absolutely love tomorrow morning!

So, we are off for a chicken dinner this evening!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly Snowflake and Mr Brambles (All together again!)


  1. I like the look of the Daisy cam ............ Have you thought this thru though Daisy, he's going to know all your favourite hiding places, where the best smells are ........ are you sure you want him to know? I think all us readers should club together and buy OTL a huge box of tissues for xmas ............ poor OTL he will be skint with all the vet bills. Glad Snowflake and Mr Brambles had lots to tell you and Holly about their stay at the hotel and that they're also glad to be back home again. Do you think that maybe their hotel had some non paying visitors? Enjoy your chicken tonight ............ pssst maybe don't mug poor OTL for his shortbread, he may not be able to afford another box. Hope you all have a good day tomorrow ........... I have visions of you all sitting round tonight singing songs about holidays :) xxx

  2. What a lovely homecoming blog Daisy. Amazing to hear that Snowflake was kissing OTL. I remember the times when OTL wouldn't have had his chin anywhere near the pointy end! Lazy Sunday's right, it's songs and shortbread around the fire tonight for sure :-) x

  3. Oh yes, songs and shortbread sounds just about right with a couple of carrots thrown in for luck. The Vets bill wasn't such a good home coming but all the rest made it worth it. You will be able to tell us all about the Ferret Hotel holiday and are waiting for the Daisy Cam to be perfected but as Lazy Sunday said you will have to be careful not to give too many secrets away. xxxx

  4. Glad you are home safe and sound and all back together again. That camera idea wants a bit more of OTL's engineering. Looking forward to some video when he gets it sorted.
    Lovely pictures of you two tonight. Luv, Mike XXXX

  5. Good to hear that the gang is all back together. Loving the idea of daisy-cam once OTL gets it sorted we could be in for a treat getting a doggy view of the world sounds exciting. xxx Annie & Jasper
