10/12/11 This is Mrs Bojangles. She has been cared for by her finder but she actually has ringworm so she has come here.
UPDATE 14/12/11 I think this is another Fluke victim but it took an hour to medicate her tonight and I am not sure if it went in her mouth.
UPDATE 20/12/11 Mrs B went to the Vet today and I have altered details here already - from Mr to Mrs and from Mange to Ringworm. However, this afternoon she was coughing very badly so is being treated for lungworm again!
UPDATE 19/1/12 Behaving in a much more hedgehoggy fashion, trashing her cage nightly so I think she is well now. Have moved her to cooler surroundings hoping she will sleep!
UPDATE 18/8/12 Mrs B hibernated on 3rd May until Aug. Moved her to conservatory last night and she woke, ate and rampaged. Took 2 hrs to find her this morning. Can you spot her?
I ASKED ADVICE RE THE ODD HIBERNATION AND SOMEONE SUGGESTED IT WAS AESTIVATION. This usually happens when the animal is too hot. I moved her to cool her (she wasn't overheating, she was in the shed) and to give more interest should she deign to get out of bed. She is now on the lawn in my plant!
UPDATE 23/8/12 Mrs B left here this morning to stay with my Pembroke Dock foster carer. She will live loose in his walled garden and, hopefully, return to the wild next year.
12/9/12 Mrs B has, sadly, died. She stayed awake, she ate and put on weight then she was found dead in her box. It was too late to have a postmortem as the body needs to be kept chilled. Maybe she had a heart condition as she went so suddenly.
24/9/12 JUST HEARD THAT, WHEN MY CARER WENT TO BURY MRS B, SHE HAD WOKEN UP AND WAS EATING AND HAS BEEN DOING SO EVER SINCE! UNBELIEVABLE!
