    Places to live as we age?

    There are some beautiful flats at Roman ridge Wincobank, 2 bedrooms and a very good size, they are a complex with door security so no one can just walk in, some have balconies and the back ones have a lovely view of the back garden and woodland where there are squirrels and foxes etc to watch if you like that sort of thing. They are for independent living, but when its needed there carers/cleaners there to help, there are clubs and a restaurant, buses just round the corner...some are rented some are privately owned.

    Logging at Bradfield

    Just had a look and yes at least some may well be Larch, I guess the new trees will take hold well in their place and the variety will be better in the long run, its a sad sight though.
  4. I have noticed that large areas of pine woods are being cleared at Bradfield and wondered if anyone knows why? It seems such a shame for the birds and animals that live in the woods there .

    Logging at Bradfield

    This does sound right to be fair, its just so sad to see all the stumps where trees once were, I can't help but wonder where the animals and birds have gone, and like Taxman think its not the best time of year to be felling them...just a bit sad.

    cat tree recommendations

    I think generally scratching posts etc are very poor quality, under the rope all it is made from is cardboard tubes which tend to collapse, why not recycle the rope from your old one and make your own, get a small tree stump and fix a platform on top will probably last an awful lot longer, it will be much stronger, and she can really get her claws into it.

    When Pet Sitters Go Wrong

    What a horror story, thank goodness that you realised that no one was coming to the animals, disgusting behaviour of the pet sitter, barring something terrible happening to her I just cannot think of an acceptable excuse for what she did. Would you please message e with who this was? I wouldn't like anyone else to go through this.

    Unsure of PDSA's diagnosis....

    Well a 2nd opinion can do no harm at all and might set your mind at rest, I hope that it goes the right way x

    Unsure of PDSA's diagnosis....

    If they did an ultra sound then the diagnosis is probably correct, I know well what you mean about how they made you feel though things got better there before but now it seems very pressurised, in the end the animals will suffer when people cant face taking them.

    Bedding for the pound

    I think things like throws, blankets etc but I would give them a ring to just check.

    Bedding for the pound

    Hi, no they dont any more.
  12. Moonbird


    All that will happen is that the original contribution will be very small if people also have to pay for meds, the PDSA have become very guilt inducing about the payments and yes I know its a charity and they need money, but its fast moving away from being a help for people in desperate need. Yes animals are going to suffer, they need a re think. That is correct yes

    Ginger kittens

    There probably aren't many kittens yet, kitten season will be upon us very soon so keep asking at the rescues.

    It does sound like a lurcher, which is a crossbreed so still more or less a mongrel its just a particular mix, my first ever dog was bought for me by my Grandad 40 years ago, Cocker Spaniel x Poodle and she cost him £5 he was outraged and said he was robbed these days she is a Cocker poo and now worth at least £500, that would have probably killed him haha.

    I have looked into this a bit, for the 2nd animal its not cheaper treatment its only the consultation, which is £26 for the first visit then drops to £20 for the 2nd visit for the same illness (I think that was right anyway) I then checked at the vet I use (Beech house at High green) there consultation for a dog is £21 and for the 2nd consultation it drops to £16...work that one out, not doing people much of a favour really are they?

    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.

    Ferret Rescue and Boarding

    I have messaged you, if I can help in any way with advice or anything you need to know just ask 😊
  23. Moonbird


    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.
  24. 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
