Good News for April!

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret here!

Well, we have some good news today!

Yesterday we got Aprils meds and Old Two Legs started her off with a dose of Diuretic to get her going, and it did!

She was in and out of the Poo Pot all evening and through the night!

This morning she was all snoozy in her bed, tucked up with Miss May.

Normally what happens is that OTL gets his breakfast and a couple of bowls of Lactose Free Milk for the ferrets and while he is slurping away at his rabbit food, the May and April have a small rampage around the office and slurp their milk down. Now, of late, April has had a slurp then headed off for a snooze. This is all to do with here heart condition, however, this morning, OTL gave her another dose of the Diuretic and  a quarter of her 'Heart Tablet'.

She slurped down the mixture with the help of a slosh of Ferretone then she was out of her sleeping bag and then set about trying to have a fight with Freddy and Wendy!

This is, 'Back to Normal' as far as she is concerned!

It looks like the meds are working!

OK. we know there is no 'Cure' for her heart condition but it is good to see her all bright and bouncing around. You know, she even flew downstairs to raid the biscuits and hide the stash behind the telly!

OTL said he was 'Well Pleased' with the results!

We still have to keep an eye on her but claws crossed things have improved no end!

We went out for our walk this morning and April came along as well but other than a wee and a poo, she stayed in the ferret bag 'cos it was rather chilly and raining!

We didn't mind and we issued an 'Excused Duties' chit for her this week!

Lunchtime came, Freddy and Wilma came out with us but decided that it was really too cold for walking. Freddy did his 'Rolling on His Back' bit and refused to walk! In the end he got a lift but only up to the bench where he was put down to walk all the way back to the car!

Too cold to walk!

While we were out OTL stopped by the power station and got his big camera out. We were all wondering what he was doing when there was a Big Bang!

Freddy jumped and said it wasn't him! Wendy shouted 'Incoming' while Holly and I ducked under the doggy towel in the back of the car!

This what happened............

Just before the Bang!
 Then it all started to fall down...................

Going, Going
 Then it all went 'Whumph!' and the dust went every where!

OK, who's got the broom?
Now, if that made a big crash, just imagine what it will be like when the chimney comes down!

That's Next!
We were glad to get away from that pile of rubble and back to a nice warm cushion for a snooze!

April is OK and snoozing and even May has moved to another bed for a snooze.

She has been spending a lot of time cuddled up to April and we think she knew that April wasn't feeling too well.

The fact she left to have a snooze in another bed is good news!

Looking over to them I see they are back together again.

Freddy and Wendy are also sharing the same bed, so, everything is peace and quiet at the moment!

See you all tomorrow!

  1. What lovely news... April is feeling better, May is taking a well earned rest from nursing duties, Fat Freddie and Wendy are in bed together.... lovely round up Daisy. Long may it continue x

  2. Evening little friends. We are so pleased to hear that Miss April has improved on her new medication and had a good day, we hope that she continues to do well and gets her sparkle back. To hear that she wanted to beat up on Miss Wendy and Freddy is showing just how much better she must feel. Good on Miss May for looking after her as well. I think though the biggest thanks have to be to you and Holly for going treatless so that OTL could afford the medicine for Miss April, I know how hard it is to go without treats. It was very cold out this morning so I hope Miss April didn't get a cold tum inside the bag. You're very kind to excuse her from her duties this week. I went out but didn't bump into any of my woofer mates or any TL's, I think it was too cold and everyone else stayed at home in the warm. Loved the video of young Freddy De Ferret, perhaps his little paws were very cold and that's why he wanted a carry. Good to hear about him and Miss Wendy sharing the same bed, it's nice to have a snuggle buddy. Wow, those pictures of that building falling, glad I wasn't around, I might have been a bit worried. Is Freddy sure it wasn't him that caused it to fall down? OTL certainly has the knack of being in the right place at the right time. Hope you all have a lovely warm, snuggly, peaceful evening. Love little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  3. All seems quiet in your neck of the woods except by the Power Station. Good news all round, fingers and paws crossed that it all continues. OTL did a fantastic job with the demolition photography, he was in just the right place at the right time, please pass on this message to him. Poor little sore footed Freddy, I think his legs are too short for his body, we must give him a new name Freddy de Shorty Ferret. Meanwhile keep on taking the medicine Miss April and have fun. xxxxxx
