Broody cat

April 29, 2017

After our poor results last time, Dottie has decided to help out with the incubation process!

Maybe she’s just canny; she’s well aware that each of those round things contain a potential wee snack!

Hamish and Dottie

March 6, 2016

Poor wee Dottie developed cystitis not long after her arrival at Garybuie resulting in her first visit to the vet. She is now fully recovered and apparently has been given new batteries along with her anti-biotics! She’s a blur; a whirling dervish. Hamish can’t keep up and won’t sleep without his sister but thankfully for him, even her batteries need recharging at some point! There’s so much to do, like┬átrying to poke some life into the old fella…

New kids on the block

March 1, 2016

We’ve had several days of crisp, winter weather. Good to be alive weather.

So good in fact, that someone has decided that it’s time to start a family. Unfortunately, Thelma, the silkie, had been using that very duck-box to lay her eggs and wasn’t too pleased that Polly Blue-tail had taken over!

Polly and Thelma

On this particular occasion, Thelma ended up depositing her egg right there on the straw whereas the following day, she climbed into the box with Polly! Needless to say, she wasn’t well received and Kevin ended up playing referee, returning Thelma to her own house and locking her in for a while!

But the real news this week is the arrival of two new kids on the block! Hamish…

…and Dottie.

As the song says, “There maybe trouble ahead…”

And finally, ‘The man with the Diamond Drill Bit’ arrived, our marble wash stand top was successfully drilled and we now have a functional wash basin! (Kevin played plumber’s mate with his essential cold water spray!)
