It's Monty's Birthday today!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret back again!

Well, today it has been brighter but it was still cold this morning, I'll be glad when summer gets started proper!

It may be sunny but the frost had only just melted!
 One good thing was the Daffy Dilly's were all getting their flowers and waving gently in the breeze!

Trouble is, they are only down one side of the path!
 We still can't make out what these things are but whatever they are, they are growing all over the place! These are the patch we saw the other day, they are looking like they want to burst into something but we are not sure if it is a bloom or fungi head!

No, we still don't know what they are!
 Lunchtime it was warmer but not warm enough to leave Old Two Legs hat behind and to be honest, we didn't see too much that was interesting.

OTL was trying to get some action shots of the birdies that were diving in and out of the trees. As the leaves had not got all their leaves yet, it was easy for the birds to see us and and by the time OTL whips his camera up, they had flown!

OK, it's a Wood Pigeon escaping!
His attention was taken by a couple of insects, one is a bee but we are not sure what it is yet as we haven't looked him up in the Book of Bees and the other looks like a weird Solder Beetle but it is too early for them, so that's another we have got to look up!

It could be one of the Solitary Bees?

This one is seriously weird!
Now, the best thing about today is that it is Monty's Birthday! He is a whole year old today and Monty, being Monty, had a wonderful game with Miss Wendy this morning chasing each other all over the house!

He is a different Monty to the Monty that first turned up here all scared and afraid of everything. He was being picked on by the others and even had to sleep on his own out in the cage instead of sleeping with all the others. It took a little while for him to settle down with Wendy 'cos she was a little scared of other ferrets as well, but, now they couldn't be happier together!

So, all together, after three........6, 97, 3!

Happy Birthday Monty Chops
He loves games in a box,
Does Poo's on paper squares
an' wee's on the stairs!

Monty is good at poo'n on the paper Old Two Legs puts down in the mornings when the ferrets come out for a rampage. All the other ferrets sort of poo around the paper instead of on it!

Miss May has had two helpings of the Convalescence Powder that arrived yesterday. She slurped down the first bowl full this morning but didn't finish it, we think that OTL put too much powder in the bowl and mixed it with Lactose Free milk. She lapped up half of it and Eric helped her finish off the rest!

This lunch time OTL mixed up some more but this time it was a 'Level Teaspoon' and Milk and she finished off the bowl down to the last lick!

OTL says he is going to give her another helping tonight before bed, she certainly is a bit livelier today, we are not sure if it is the Convalescence Powder, the milk or the lump of raw beef or even the cooked beef!

See you tomorrow!


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