Scruff Scribbles with Bud - 2/12/2007
I know itís been a while since Iíve been in touch but Iíve been a busy Bud.
Itís bad enough washing behind your ears, making sure you get enough food and water and catching a few kips throughout the day but when youíre looking out for a family of three itís hard work. For those of you who donít know, I have moved in with my new pals Sybil and Denver.
I was a bit down in the dumps after I lost my lovely Clara but these guys have really cheered me up and Iím really pleased to be part of their gang. I keep hearing Delia telling people that Iím doing really well and I am. Iím so pleased to be staying with Auntie Karen and getting lots of fuss and cuddles. That nice reporter from the Epsom and Ewell Guardian write another fantastic feature about me and Bobtails so Iím even more famous now. The good thing is Bobtails sold loads more calendars on the back of the feature so we really want to say a big thank you to Kevin.
There are still some calendars left Ė theyíre in the sale now. If you like one, get in touch with Delia and sheíll post one to you.
Talking of calendars, I heard from some of the lads in the top she that when the snow came at the end of last week they were allowed to play out. What good fun they had hopping and making bunny snow angels in the snow. They also posed for a few pictures for next yearís calendar Ė I donít think Deliaís ever been this organised before. Is she ok?
Another thing which is going really well for Bobtails at the moment, thanks to Auntie Pat, is the bunny sponsorship. If our kind followers didnít support this, I donít know what we would do. Some of the buns who come into Bobtails cannot be rehomed because they are too poorly. Thankfully, no-one is put to sleep. Instead they become permanent Bobtails bunnies and are looked after here and the money raised through sponsorship helps pay their vet bills.
Sadly the number of unwanted buns and guinea pigs coming through the doors continues to rise faster and faster each week and the stories of horror that my friends bring with them get worse and worse.
At the weekend a little guinea pig was found dumped near the side of the road on Epsom Downs. Luckily heís here with us making new friends and catching up on some sleep.
I canít end on a sad note, so to finish Iíll tell you about a special visitor we had at the weekend. Youíll all have heard of West Wales Willow Iím sure Ė they supple delicious hay and youíre missing a treat if you havenít had a nibble. Anyway, Billa from West Wales Willow is working in the area as a locum vet and she popped in to see us on Sunday, giving quite a few of us a welcome nudgey cuddle.
Anyway, Iíll be back in touch soon. In the meantime keep warm with a few nudgey cuddles of your own.
