    IS schoolgirl wants to return

    If it was my choice (which obviously it isn't 😛 ) then no dont let her back, but I would allow the baby here as it is an innocent and not going to have the best of lives there, it would go up for adoption and the family have no rights to it, total fresh start.

    That does sound like what you would pay anywhere for the treatment, a bit on the expensive side. I thought that the other named pets were supposed to have cheaper treatment...still cheaper than the regular vet? I was wondering how it worked myself as it doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.
  5. Rehome or Sale? Re-home Reason for Rehome / Sale Rescued and now needs her own home Sale Amount Location Sheffield Has the Pet been in Rescue Previously? N/A Can the animal be picked up and put into a basket without the risk of scratching or biting? Yes but she is a ferret! Age & Sex Female a year or under Breed/ Mix N/A Colour/coat type Silver Can the animal be groomed/handled without biting or scratching? Usually Live in / out Either, out at the moment Neutered/spayed Dont know, probably not Chipped No Any Current or Historical Health or Psychological Issues None seen Temperament Lively, happy, busy, playful, not a lap ferret, lovable and friendly Vaccinated & Wormed No Any special knowledge needed A ferret savvy home needed with other ferrets General Information you can share Sparkle was a stray ferret that was living rough for a few days until she was caught, she has now spent her time waiting to be claimed but sadly that didn't happen so she needs a home to call her own. She is only a youngster last years Baby I would say and so is still very giddy and lively, she doesn't bite but can nip when she is playing and is excited so not a pet for a small Child, she has been living here alone but now needs company and is longing for some friends to play with and cuddle up to. Sparkle will only go to a home that will neuter or implant her she is not to be bred from, sorry no vasectomised Hobs or Jill jabs, she needs a home that understands about Female Ferrets breeding cycles. Working homes will not be discounted as long as tracking collars are used and she would be primarily a pet. Home check will apply.

    Dear forum I have a problem.

    Hello friends its Kira here, its a long time since I had a chat with you and I was wondering how you are all doing? I am 11 years old now I am very well although my face is very grey and my tummy rumbles a bit in the morning, Mummy doesn't get up and ignores me, she is still not so good in the training dept I doubt that she will ever learn I do have a bit of sad news for you all, my very bestest friend and Sister Pea has been very ill for a few weeks, she went to the vet a few days ago and she didn't come back, I am sad and I miss her, I do take comfort in my other friends Barley and Tess but its not the same, Mummy is sad too and she makes sniffing noises a lot and there is water coming from her eyes, I dont like that so Mummy tries not to do it to often, she gives me lots of love and cuddles and says we will all feel better soon, I hope so. I miss you my pal Pea, I hope the story about rainbow bridge is true because I cant wait to see you again, to cuddle up and lick your ears, and play again like we did when we were pups . All of my love forever, your Sister Kira xxxx

    Ferret seen in walkley 29/11

    If you do manage to catch the ferret I can offer it a safe temporary home until its owners are found.
  10. Thanks for that I will get onto it, I hope that someone can help them as obviously things are only going to get worse weather wise now, it doesn't bear thinking about.
  11. I am becoming increasingly concerned that someone is living rough somewhere that I walk with my dogs, I first noticed a tent there a few weeks ago, there appeared to be a couple of young Men that came out of it, I couldn't see them that clearly but definitely not kids, I was shocked to see the tent there still today, it is so cold today I cant help but worry...any ideas what I could do to get help for these people?

    How can I stop cats

    If they are empty cant you just put a piece of wood over them till you need them next so that the cats cant get in?
  14. Or perhaps give a few of us the money to take our pets away into the countryside on holiday for a couple of months
  15. Ok lets just break this down, first of all its hardly an annual event... up to now it has been a nightly event (of varying degrees) for at least 2 weeks where I live, and will now carry on sporadically until after New year. Now for the training of pets part...I bought a fireworks cd to try to desensitize my dogs, I played it at the very lowest audible level with exactly the same effect to my dogs, they are terrified, I tried a few times and gave up. I never had a problem with my dogs before other than a mild reaction until the Neighbours set off fireworks that shook the house for 2 years running, now they cannot get over it, its akin to PTSD. Right then drugging them...How can I drug them from now till after New year every night? would it be right or even safe to do this? This is not a minor inconvenience, this is heart wrenching to watch their distress, the fun of other people means that I have to get up at 2am to let them out for their last wee because they wont now go out in the dark at all until it has been stopped for a very long time. I dont want fireworks banned but I do want them restricted to silent or low noise for home displays with the loud ones only being for displays and at certain agreed times, this would make them a lot more predictable and easy to cope with, no one wants to stop other people having fun and kids (some of them) love a fire and fireworks its a good part of growing up, the bangers though are now just becoming a public nuisance, the fun of the few has become the problem of the many and not just pet owners either.
