Visit to the Harrietsham Ferret Resue Centre.

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss Snowflake and Mr 'Bro' Brambles here!

The sunshine is back and we hear that it will be getting hotter as the week goes on!

The ferrets get an 'Ice Pack' tucked under one of their cushions when it gets too warm, that way they can choose where to snooze, in bed or on a hammock or on the cushion with the ice pack underneath to keep them cool.

We have noticed that they move around the beds they have, depending on how they feel!

Cool or Wot!

I think that Old Two Legs needs one of them strapped to his head 'cos he keeps forgetting stuff, like this morning, instead of picking up the 'colour' camera, he picked up the Black & White one, so, today we are in Mono!

We got to the car park and came storming out of the car and raced around the corner to see a field full of rabbits!

The only problem was, they were just too fare away and it was just too hot to chase them!

So we didn't!
 Snowflake said that we should all go for a roll on the sea weed 'cos it was still wet and was really cool!

It's really cool in here!
 The ferrets really love the grass path 'cos they ferret around in the grass and spend so much time sniffing for ferret sniffs!

We sat up the end of the path waiting for them. Of course they were not interested in hurrying up 'cos they were having so much fun!

That's it, Just There!
 Holly and I were enjoying a rest in the sun while these two were having fun. In the end Snowflake came bounding up to me and called out, loud enough for Holly to hear........

Yo Sis! Been waiting long?
I could hear Holly going 'Humph! She looks nothing like you!'

Brambles came up and  called out 'Hey Sis, It's me, your Bro Brambles!'

Yo! Bro!
 Holly was running out of Humph's!

Back home there was some freshly cooked chicken which went down a treat!

It was warming up and all of us decided to have a snooze, except OTL and The Missus who were off to the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue to hand over a donation from the ladies at the Allhallows Crop Cardathon!

Roy & Chris who run the rescue were tickled pink and said that it would go to help with the cost of feeding the ferrets and if they needed any vet treatment.

While OTL & TM were there Roy got a telephone call from a lady who had just moved into a house to find there were two ferrets in a cage with a note saying they (the previous owners) couldn't take the ferrets!

Just how horrid some TL can be! Roy said the lady could bring the ferrets along and he would take care of them. Now, there are two more mouths to feed and maybe they might need to see the vet and that all costs money!

Roy, TM and Chris.
 Roy and Chris will be at the Kent County Show (10th -12th July) so, if you are going you can see some ferret racing and meet Roy, Chris and other ferret owners who will be able to tell you all about ferrets!

When OTL  and TM got back, Holly and I grabbed OTL and off we went to The Sea Wall for our (late) midday walk!

As soon as we got there we met up with a little woofer who was louder and woofier than Holly!

It was good that it was on a lead 'cos it wanted to get rough with Holly but he was held back!

Such a Noisy Woofer!
 We had a great time on the beach and in the end we both sat down in the shade of the Sea Wall and watched the Christina sail out to sea. The Christina had been in Chatham Docks for over two years!

A cruise is OK but I'd rather feel the grass under my paws!
 OTL was in a silly mood and said he would take a 'Selfie' just for fun.

We think it is too much sun!
 Back home to a snooze and then we are off to mug OTL 'cos he has found another packet of Shortbread!

See you tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Snowflake and Bro Brambles!


  1. Wot a super day, it has been too hot to chase wabbits. I bet the people at the ferret rescue were over the moon to get the cheque to help them take care of the ferrets. You're right Daisy, some TL's are very horrible to leave their pets. Glad you enjoyed your snoozes while you were home alone. Shame OTL didn't get a picture of the boat. Hope OTL shares his shortbread with you, I'm sure he will. Enjoy the mugging. Love, licks and wags from little Arch xxxx

  2. What a busy day you have all had, a field full of rabbits who were too quick with you both being too slow! OTL does take care of the furries with the ice packs, what a lovely idea and they don't know how lucky they are. I don't see you or the ferrets being abandoned that the two in your Diary, what a shame and how good it is that Roy and Chris are able to go to their rescue. Lovely pictures even in "monochrome", OTL looks like Mr Dillon in his selfie. Nice to see TM all smiles and in "colour" that was a great achievement to raise the money for such a good cause. Enjoy the shortbread. xxxx
