Wendy gets lost!

Hi Woofers!

Us again! Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.

Well, there is no wind yet! The best we got today is 0.0mph! So, that means it has been grey all day!

Look! I see the Tower!
 May and Eric didn't seem bothered and ran off to have a dig in the sand!

We could pinch the dog's ball and bury it!
 Back home Holly and I retired to the bedroom while Old Two Legs did the cages. First out was May and Eric who had great fun diving into the crate full of ping pong balls!

Then it was Fred and Wendy's turn to have a good hour's rampage around the house.

OTL finished their cage then played a game with them and they all played 'Chase' around the lounge.

Then OTL went off to do some stuff on the computer leaving the ferrets to get into trouble!

After an hour or so OTL went looking for the ferrets. First he found Freddy asleep in the drawer of the office desk. He was gently lifted up and placed into the cage. Then he went looking for Wendy.

She was nowhere to be found! All the normal hidy holes were searched but no success, no a sign of her at all!

The house was turned up side down in a search for her but no sign.

The chairs in the lounge are leather covered and there is a flap at the back that is secured with strips of Velcro and Snowflake used to get in there for a quiet snooze and remembering this OTL looked inside, nothing.

Off he went again turning everything up side down and The Missus said that OTL was being silly looking in the places he was looking, like, oven, washing machine, dishwasher, booze cupboard!

OTL said that after we had looked in all the sensible places then all was left was the silly places!

OTL was back to the lounge chairs again, pulling off the cover and feeling the inside of the springs and he was looking at the underside of the chair TM uses.

Underneath the chair there was a sagging sort of bulge and OTL was going to write it off as a result of TM's time spent sitting there. Just as a test he put his hand there and sort of lifted it up, it was warm, and when OTL moved it, it moved back!

That was it, Wendy had been found!

Now was the problem of getting her out, without hurting her, while she was still half asleep!

In a move that OTL described as 'Squeezing Tooth paste out of the Tube' he finally got her out!

Well, there is another hidy hole that goes on the list of places to look for her the next time she goes missing!

We left them asleep at lunchtime and headed down to the beach again.

It was still foggy!

We are definitely going to get Archie Babe down here to blow it away!
 Down on the beach there were a couple of fishermen throwing worms into the sea. We decided that we would leave them to it 'cos a bit later the tide is going to come up past where their little camp is and they will have to get up on the Sea Wall!

It's going to get wet!
 Back home we got an email from Roy at the Harrietsham Ferret Rescue thanking OTL and TM for their help in fund raising for the Centre.

We have re printed the email for you to see 'cos we know a lot of you have made contributions and deserve all the good praise possible!

See you all tomorrow!


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