Monty is still off his food.

Hello Woofers!

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

Little Monty is still not back to normal yet. Old Two Legs has been trying to get him to eat some special stuff he got from the vet that should help make him feel better. The vet gave him two tins of the stuff plus two syringes.

Now, at first OTL was unsure of the syringes but last night he mixed up a bowl of this stuff, mixed with Royal Canine Convalescence powder and a splosh of Lactose Free Milk. Monty didn't want it, so, using the syringe, OTL managed to get a couple of tubes of the stuff down Monty's throat. He didn't like it and put up a bit of a struggle even though OTL wrapped him up in a towel.

This morning OTL tried a mixture of just the convalescence powder and lactose free milk and once again he struggled like mad trying to get it down Monty's throat!

OTL says that he remembers when he had to give Snowflake some medicine using a syringe but just after he squirted it into her mouth, she shook her head and both OTL and the Vet were covered in the medicine!

That was before we discovered Ferretone!

Yeah, we have tried Ferretone with Monty but he doesn't do Ferretone as much as the other ferrets!

OTL says that it may not be much but he is managing to get some down Monty's throat which is better that nothing!

Miss Wendy keeps cuddling up to Monty and giving him a sniff around his tummy and butt. Then the pair of them creep under the blanket and have a snooze while OTL mixes up some more powder!

It's strange how miss May just loves the stuff and can't get enough but Monty thinks it is poison!

We met up with Olly this morning and told him about Monty. Olly said that he sends his love to Monty and although he rather fancies roast ferret on toast for breakfast he understood about not liking the medicine!

What do you reckon a ferret tastes like, rabbit?
OTL was looking for insects but all he came across was this daytime moth, well, we think it is a daytime moth 'cos we haven't seen a butterfly like it!

Must get the book out and see what this is!
Lunchtime I had a bit of luck, there, on the ground was a brand new shinny tennis ball just waiting to be thrown. OTL spotted me sniffing it and threw it down the path for me. I got a bit fed up later 'cos OTL couldn't throw it that far, what he needs is the throwing stick in the caravan to get some distance!

I'm getting fed up with this, I need a good run not a trot down the path!
The Missus said that there were loads of messages on FaceAche wishing Monty well but as we don't have FaceAche on OTL's computer we can't see them.

Well, a big thank you to all who have send good wishes and mixed with our good wishes we are hoping that he starts eating again 'cos that will be a good sign!

Tomorrow Monty is off to the vet first thing. More news as it comes!
