Not one of the best days we have had!

Hi Woofers!

It's Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Eric de Ferret and Monty de Ferret here.

Not the best of days, it started off raining as we headed out for our morning stroll, well the clouds made everything dark and gloomy!

Old Two Legs made it a little darker by doing some fiddly diddly with the camera settings, just to give it atmosphere, well, that's his excuse!

Moody? Well, it still looks just dark to me!
While he was messing about Holly and I headed off to the long grass for some serious sniffing and a nibble of grass 'cos Holly reckons she has a Grumbly Tum and needs a little 'Help'!

I'd much prefer the Spring Grass, it's got more body to it!
Being as we were out earlier than normal we didn't see anyone on the path or even in the woods, it was almost spooky!

Just us and the trees!
 A quarter to eleven arrived and OTL was off with Miss May, Wendy and Monty to see the vet.

Miss May got weighed and pushed and poked then finally she got stabbed with the sharp needle and that was her sorted for the next twelve months!

Young Monty came out of the cage and was pushed and poked and prodded and finally the vet said she had found a 'Lump'!

Unfortunately an X Ray wouldn't show anything 'cos Monty was so small and there was only one thing that could be done, an operation to see what was there.

So, we had to leave Monty at the vet and we are all sitting at home with our claws crossed. It seems that the longer it is that we don't hear anything the better it is, so, at half past one we are trying to keep busy by writing up the blog and hoping we don't get a phone call until late this afternoon.

Well, the phone rang a couple of minutes ago and it was a case of 'Good News/ Bad News'.

It seems that there is no blockage in his gut, 'good news' however, the vet found that the adrenal glands were enlarged due to 'Adrenal Disease' and while he is all sewn up and recovering the vet says Monty has 'Two or Three months at best'. It seems there is no cure and antibiotics may help but if it gets painful there may be just one option left.

It means however, that he will get a load of loving and anything he wants in the way of treats!

OTL is going to pick him up around six thirty, so we will have posted this blog by then. If there is any more new we will tell you tomorrow.


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