Otter Rescue


New arrival last nite – about 5/6 weeks old, cute, cuddly and found freezing nearly to death at the roadside.

It’s an otter kit. She was handed in and we are taking care of her in the house with our own dogs and cats.

She is eating very well but it’s extremely messy and time consuming. We are giving her pureed salmon and kitten milk and also small pieces of salmon and trout.

Her teeth are very sharp and she plays like a puppy loves playing with Kevin our semi disabled kitten.

I will keep you all updated on a daily basis.

Countdown to Christmas…

Hello, Today has been busy.

I was called out to rescue an injured Fox, He was lying on the side of the road just outside  Walkerburn.

As yet he hasn’t moved much but we have left him very quiet and warm, tomorrow will tell.

duckI have 2 ducks looking for homes, they are both drakes [mallards].

These ducks were brought here by a lady who reared them with her own ducks,

Being drakes she has no room for them now.

They can go seperate or together if you have a big enough pond,

also they are easy to pick up at same time remain wild.
