It's a 'Sore Paw Day'

Hi Woofers!

Us again, Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss April, Miss Wendy and Freddy de Ferret, back to see you again!

This morning Aprils paw was inspected by Old Two Legs and while he can judge the size of the pad, he can't see what the cause is. All we know is that the pad is swollen and is the same size as last night. So, no improvement there!

While we were out on the beach, OTL made a call to the vet for an appointment for April and managed to get one for 10;30hr today. That means we couldn't stay as long on the beach as normal. We did however, meet the lads, Poppy, Beau, Bryn, Max and Oscar!

So many woofers on the beach and they all wanted to say 'Hello' to the ferrets!

All the ferrets wanted was a wee!

It wasn't long before we had the beach to ourselves and we all enjoyed a game of 'Bulldozers' in the sand and even Holly got into the game as well!

Back home we had time to let OTL clean the cages out and for the ferrets to have a 'Rampage' around the house!

Little April fell asleep under the furniture and OTL had to move it away from the wall before he could extract April from underneath!

Pretty soon it was time for April to visit the vet and May decided she would come along as well to keep April company and hold her paw if she got worried!

The vet had a look, poked around and decided that it was an infection that was causing the problem, so she decided that what was needed was a gallon or two of Anti-Biotic  stuff to add to the other medication she is taking!

OTL was heart broken as he handed his wallet over to the lady who works the till!

He was sobbing all the way home and both May and April had to give him a lick and a cuddle, just to help him get over the shock of it all!

What was worse, OTL has managed to break the memory card in the camera, so bang goes the photos for today!

Just as he was getting over it all, one of his customers rang up with an URGENT PROBLEM!

So, that was it, off went OTL and we got walked at lunchtime by The Missus!

We are still waiting for him to come home, you see, he has steak and chips tonight and our poor stomach walls are banging together and the noise is terrible!

We need OTL home, NOW!

We will let you know how it goes!

Bye for now!


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


  1. Sorry to hear that April's paw didn't get better overnight but them antibiotic things are pretty good and I hope it gets better very soon, she's a very brave little furball to go to the vets but Miss May is a good sis to go with her and make sure the vet didn't hurt April. OTL will have to get a big plaster for his wallet and get Mrs TM to kiss it better. Now, you need to all be sitting in front of the telly this evening and watching the Yorkshire Vet, he's going to be treating a feisty ferret, according to the programme details. You can watch and see wot happens to the vet if he gets on the wrong side of the ferret. I've been to the vets this morning, I got lots of cuddles with 3 nurses and my vet Catriona, I also got a needle stuck into my neck to take more of my blood but the vet was quite happy with my results, I still have a little bit of pancreatitis but she said she was not surprised after how ill I'd been, so I have to go back next Tuesday and see her again and get another blood test to see how things are going. I'm still having to stay on my lead, even in the garden and I'm only allowed 2 x 15 minute walks a day and I still have to wear my muzzle when I'm outside so that I don't snack on anything nasty. Shame about the photos but I'll look forward to seeing some as soon as OTL sorts out his memory card. I hope he gets home soon so that you can share his steak and chips, I have to stay on my diet and medication for another week ......... yukkkkk. Paws crossed that little April's paw isn't sore. Hope you all have a good evening and don't forget to watch the ferret teach the vet a trick or two. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Hope the vet has given a good medicine, I say give, should have said sold. OTL's wallet seems more healthy than the memory card, how did he manage to break it, did he drop it and then drive over it? Hope he finally came home for his steak and chips and quieten your stomach drum beats, poor little darlings you know how to get the sympathy votes. I have just come home so we are watching Dexter the ferret in Yorkshire being stitched up. Looks like he will be alright, seems like Peter, the vet has been on the wrong end of Dexter's teeth! Archie seems to be getting there, that's a good boy Archie you carry on little man. x. Did OTL look at those doggie bags, maybe expensive, I don't know how they compare. Enjoy the sunshine, perhaps a little swim is in order. xxxxxx
