Thank you for all the lovely comments yesterday. It's going to be great to share the excitement with you all :)
We specifically had the op done so he would be well recovered by the time we move, but he's not been able to make much progress with this nasty infection. Let's just hope that over the next three weeks we can get on top of the infection so he can start walking and physio in earnest.
Meanwhile one of the cats decided to pee on my duvet for the first (and last hopefully!) time. I have no idea why he thought that was an appropriate thing to do, but I was not amused. I had to drag my huge feather duvet down to the bath and try to shower and shampoo the affected area. Of course we haven't exactly had the right weather to get it dry either. Perhaps he senses something is going on? Mind you he might not need to bother because if he does it again I might carry through with my threat to leave him behind!! (Only joking)
Some of the chickens seem to have developed alopecia and are shedding feathers by the bucket load. I can't quite decide if it's mites or if one of them is yanking them out. Maggie doesn't seem to be affected at all, so perhaps she is secretly making all the other ladies look ugly?
I think we are all looking forward to a fresh start!
