Hi, It’s been a very busy two days. We have seen the last photographer and film crew off the premises – might get back to normality. If there is such a thing here.

Orla the Otter is doing ok, she is starting to eat Salmon on her own when I cut it into small pieces. She will devour a piece of salmon if I leave it in her bed, it’s so funny to see this wee thing trying to tackle a piece of salmon on her own. She also loves to cuddle up next to your neck when she’s sleeping – which she does a lot of at the moment.

Asda Galashiels have been very good to us and have donated salmon and trout, we have enough to keep her going for about a week. Many Thanks to them.

I will be back with more on Orla later.

bye Shona 🙂

P.S Forgot does anyone have a child’s travel cot that they no longer need as  Orla will soon need more room to move around. thanks

Tuesday 6th January,


Woke up to snow this morning and more frozen water……. its Winter at Arthurshiel!

Just a normal day, one older cat rehomed and three young ones in, two grey and one grey tabby.

Amber the german shepherd has arrived back, she a really nice dog but must be only pet in the house. She has settled back in with us no problems.

The budgies are needing homes and the ferret would like one as well.

This time of year is often quiet on the rehoming and busy on the stray animal side.

Hope i have more news for you all tomorrow…

Shona 🙂
