Welcome to Miss Wendy!

Hi Woofers!

The Gang is back again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy De Ferret!

Yep! You are right, there is a new name on the list!

Freddy has been all excited this morning and both May and April have been winding him up by giving him some tips on how to make friends with a lady ferret. According to May and April it all involves butt sniffing and ear licking and giving up your Chicken Strip Treat!

Freddy says he is OK with that, except the bit about the Chicken Strip! Mind you, he did say he would share it, providing he got first nibble!

Down on the beach May was charging about and Old Two Legs took some video of her getting a wet paw as the waves came in!

You will have to wait until tomorrow for that 'cos we are all behind like a Woofer Tail!

Lunchtime Holly and I escorted Freddy Boy over to the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue, made sure his fur was brushed and he had clean paws, patted him on the butt and sent him to meet Miss Wendy!

There were several mighty big woofers in cages giving us and OTL some serious woofing, so Holly and I stayed in the car, with the windows wound up!

After a while, OTL came back with Freddy and Wendy and put them both in the big travelling cage together to see what would happen.

Now, two things can happen, first is 'Warfare' where they fly at each other and a big fight starts over the 'Territory'  which is the cage. At this point they are separated and it's back to the drawing board!

The next thing that can happen is, loads of butt sniffing, investigating all over each other. Now that is a good sign!

That is what happened when Wendy and Freddy joined each other in the clean cage. You see, OTL had cleaned the cage out and washed the bedding and put new food in the bowl and clean water in a well washed water bottle and..... well, there were no ferret sniffs in the cage, so it was 'Netural Territory!

After a while Wendy tried to give Freddy's ears a good licking, which is a sign of dominance but Freddy wasn't having any of that and gave her a perfect 'Butt Shove' which knocked her out of the bedding and into the poo pot!

So it went on like that for about half an hour while we all watched. In the end they both snuggled under the bedding and had a snooze!

It was declared to be a success, so home comes Miss Wendy.

By the way, it was OTL who decided on her name 'cos she came with no name as she was found wandering in the open and handed it to somewhere and finally found her way into the Harrietsham Rescue Centre.

While OTL was there he handed in a couple of donations from the Crafty Ladies, there was Di Ward who sold some of her cards and decided the ferrets could do more with the donation than she would. The other donation came from The Missus who sold off some stamps and stuff she no longer had any use for and the money also found it's way into the 'Donation Pot'!

Chris and Roy say thanks for the donations as every little helps keep the centre running for lost and abandoned ferrets!

By the way, the previous owners of May and April were told about this blog, so they may drop in to see what is happening to these two tearaways!

On the way home OTL telephoned the vet and got an appointment to get Miss Wendy a jab to prevent her getting Distemper and some other nasty bugs! So, that it why we are terribly late in getting the blog up and running!

Now, I know you are all wondering what Wendy looks like and we apologise 'cos we have only managed to grab a quick photo while she was investigating her new home, so, here is the little lady!

Miss Wendy having a sniff!
 So, sorry for the lack of photos, I expect there will be loads for you to see in the near future but first our little lady has to settle down to life in our house!

See you all tomorrow!


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy De Ferret.


  1. Oooohh welcome to Miss Wendy, isn't she pretty. I bet Freddy De Ferret is well pleased with his new snuggle buddy. Freddy sure knows how to spot a pretty girl. I reckon it's his wiggle that gets the girls going weak at the knees. Paws crossed all goes well for them. Maybe them big woofers were barking because they were trying to attract 2 lovely lady woofers. So, did April stay in bed this morning or did she go down to the beach with Miss May? Looking forward to seeing more pics and some video when OTL has time to put it on. It was really nice of your Mrs TM and Di to give some donations to the ferret centre. Hope you all have a lovely evening and that the little love birds settle well together, Freddy is a gentle chap so Wendy has found herself a nice little boy to snuggle up with. Mr Nipper says he wants a lady friend now but we're not so sure that he would be much of a gentleman. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch & Mr (me not a gentleman?)Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. A big Welcome Miss Wendy. She is very pretty but don't let Izzy know that I said that. I'm very pleased that Freddy de Ferret has found a new companion to share his Towers with. I hope she knows how to use a poo pot properly.
    Those woofers at the Rescue centre sound a bit scary. It's a good job you stayed in the car. TM and Di were very kind to help the rescue centre.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the photos tomorrow and especially the video of Miss May getting her paws wet. Hope you have a lovely day tomorrow and that Freddy and Wendy have a cosy, snuggly night together. Licks, wags and woofs from Hamish xxxxxxx

  3. Such good news. With Wendy having been homeless I hope she settles in nice and quickly and without too much need for TCP for poor OTL. Really hope she loves Freddy boy too X

  4. Wahoo . . . welcome Wendy. You will be very happy in your new home with Freddy for company x

  5. Wahoo . . . welcome Wendy. You will be very happy in your new home with Freddy for company x

  6. Fabulous news, welcome to Miss Wendy, she sounds as if she's got Freddie well and truly sussed out xxxxx

  7. Ah yes, welcome to miss Wendy and she is very pretty, we will have to wait to see pictures to know her size but she seems to have found a new friend as well as a lovely new home. Well done on the donations because otherwise all these little ferrets would be homeless. You are forgiven the lack of pictures as I know OTL has been very busy with his main prima Donna, he did a very good job with the editing and wonder if he found a new programme as he was looking. Still been cold so I don't blame the little ones for staying in bed, good idea, we were going out to lunch but Michael's sinus is bad and his eye all swollen so I went to the TL vet for tablets for him. Our doggie friend Ted in America has had an operation on his spine as is home but can't walk yet although he can take some weight so paws crossed.
    Hope the new Miss is happy in her new home and that Fred doesn't give her a hard time. xxxxxx

  8. How lovely, Miss Wendy is so so lucky to go from being homeless, which must have been scarey and now she has found herself in the luxury of Godwin Mansions with Freddie da Ferret. Freddie is very lucky to find himself a lovely new snuggle buddy, think Archie's right it's his wiggle that does it, he is so cool!!! Glad you stayed safely away from those big barking woofers, girls some woofers just don't know how to behave in front of ladies like you. Looking forward to seeing how Wendy settles she's in good hands with OTL, just hope he doesn't need too much TCP. Love, licks and little woofs from Jasper and her indoors, Annie xxx
