The older kittens are with me for just one more week, the people having these babies are getting just the best kittens, fabulous characters each and every one of them, but a quick warning, they only have 2 speeds, flat out and sleeping - pictures are much easier when they are sleeping :-)
Those of you who are friends with me on facebook will already have heard about Audrey's adventure last week. Audrey is a deer hunter and on Tuesday she picked up the scent of a deer and disappeared, she was missing for nearly 10 hours. During this time I was absolutely frantic and walked over 25 miles looking for her. Thanks to the wonders of social media and the posters I downloaded from Dog Lost I received a phonecall at 8pm to let me know that she had returned to where I park my van. I cannot convey the relief I felt when I collected her that night. That, however, is not the end of the stress that she caused me, as she was literally covered in ticks, I reckon there were somewhere between 500 and 800!!! The video was taken after I had already removed a great number of them and it doesn't pick up a fraction of what she actually had on her. I am pleased to report that the tick treatment I used on her the following day successfully dispatched the nasty little beggars.
Later in the week I was invited to meet two friends, who have Itzapromise poodles, at a fairly local beach. Unfortunately there was a film crew on the beach filming a scene for an upcoming feature film, so we were a bit limited on space. We did however manage to have a lovely couple of hours on the beach and it was great to see the poodles :-)
