AAaaaawwwwwww A Cute Bunny Amy ;)

12 Feb, 2010

 

Aww Amy, so cute. The wildlife loves your garden - I hope she/he sticks to eating just the grass.

12 Feb, 2010

 

Yes, put up a sign Amy, " Don't Touch The Plants, Stay On The Grass " !!!

12 Feb, 2010

 

LOL Louise "Stay On The Grass" Not the Normal Keep Off 1 :)

12 Feb, 2010

 

Yes !!!!

12 Feb, 2010

 

They are cute aren't they, not when they dig your plants up though, like flippin watership down in our garden at the moment,lol, a real favourite is centaura they dig that up and eat roots too have to cover with netting,and found holes where some of my favourite aquilegias were the other day, wish they could read Louise quite welcome to cut the grass,lol.

12 Feb, 2010

 

Perhaps you should put a plate of veggie out for him/her. It would be a bit like feeding the birds :)

12 Feb, 2010

 

Oh no Simbad :-(
They're going for all the nice things :-((
What can you do to keep them off those areas ?

I know they look cute but Oh what a problem to keep them out .. It's not to bad at this time of the year but we have a gate with chicken wire running along the bottom which we have to try to keep closed when the veg. are growing .. .. I have a sign on the gate saying, please shut the gate , the postmen can't read so I don't expect the rabbits can ...
Gee you will think i'm mad but I did put carrots and veg pealing outside the gate when all that snow was piled up , I felt sorry for them ..~~

12 Feb, 2010

 

I don't think you're mad, Amy. I would have done the same :)

LOL... :o))

12 Feb, 2010

 

Just have to cover their favourites with wire netting Louise, plants grow through it, caught me off guard with the aquilegias though they don't normally bother with them, I'll win in the end,lol :-)

12 Feb, 2010

12 Feb, 2010

It's been shooed out Sandra before it becomes to regular , on the news today in a local village they found two Swans that had dozens of pellets in them they had been shot and killed on purpose , how cruel is that , I hope they find out who did it ..I would like to do the same to them !!

12 Feb, 2010

 

oh no thats awfull amy, im with you on that one grrr.

12 Feb, 2010

 

That makes me so angry, Amy. I do hope those responsible are found and punished.

12 Feb, 2010

 

How awful Amy, just can't understand how someone can be so cruel, can't print what I would do to them!!!

12 Feb, 2010

amy
Amy
 

It's so sad , it's as though these people haven't any feelings at all , I hope they catch those responsible , i'll let you know if they do !

13 Feb, 2010

 

Bless him he is lovely, Amy thats just what i would do if there was any near me, its hard not to feed anything esspecially when its so cold :o))

13 Feb, 2010

 

How awful Amy makes my blood boil,can't imagine the sort of people who could do such a thing to any creature let alone such beautiful birds, don't like the rabbits eating my plants but would never do anything to harm them.

I think the kids today play so many computer games where they kill all sorts of things and then they pop up alive the next minute .. I don't think they know whats real and what isn't anymore .....
you can tell when the Rabbits are struggling for food because they start digging holes in the grass verges and chewing the bark off the trees , last year we went up the lane putting wire netting round the trunks , we thought they had killed the trees , there was hardly any bark left on them ....

13 Feb, 2010

 

I agree Amy.......the stuff that is available for them is atrocious......don't know what's happened to the censoring of violence these days....such a lot of nastiness now, then everyone moaning the police aren't dealing with it. I really blame the government for allowing such availability to youngsters......its breeding a terrible society...and costing taxpayers millions.........kids seem to be divorced from real life and nature.......

Dreadful about the swans....violence does breed violence....because I would love to get a birch broom and whack their backsides!!

Me to Janey , me to ! . so many shops etc. have been broken into in the town this last week , do you ever see a policeman . No ... but there were 10 in two different places out on the main road with speed guns .. you know why ....'cos thats making money !!

14 Feb, 2010

 

your right amy .no your not mad at all well only in a good way if you are because i think you have to be to get bye realy .i feal for hedge hogs as when they use there defences on the road ironicly it becomes what kills them .its a shame and i go out of my way to help them or not run them over or other animals . ill also stop to put animals out of there missery if there mortaly wounded or ill take them to the vets . once at yarmouth my dog caught a penguin between the piers at gt yarmouth . i didnt know weather to grab the penguin who my sharpei darling had got hold of or grab my dog . i grabbed the dog,she let go and the penguin dived under the see.it was at night .it wasnt very big so it was a rock hopper or chin strap as kings or empoorer pengiuns are about 3 foot tall.i walked round all night pinching myself .my 2 boys and my partner at the time were there to.how mad is that.i think it must of bean an escapee or something .take care amy and everyone else.see you soonish take care bye for now lots of love leigh xx aka www.noseypotter.com

Leigh .. I thought I was seeing things when I saw Penguin , You were lucky to have seen one , not so lucky for your dog ! do you think it would have hurt your dog , I mean do Penguins eat dogs ? or dragged it under until it drowned ! I wonder if it had escaped from the Sea Life centre at Hunstanton ?
Tony had to put a rabbit out of it's misery the other week when we were out walking , I thought it was dead but it wasn't quite , I couldn't do it but he couldn't leave it to suffer ... .. bye for now Leigh .. x

15 Feb, 2010

 

hello amy i hope your well and john allen bill harry peter your husband anyway lol tony isnt it lol .i cant see an animal dying in pain i just cant .the penguin was only one of the smaller types .it was the dog who got hold of it bless it .theres a rig like an oil rig just of shore which throws some light on that part of the beech.we were just walking along and darling my sharpei then grabbed it right near the surf .my little datshund buzby at the time was nearly drowning trying to get to it and i had my st burnard rommel with me to . it happend so quick i just had to think on my feet realy. darling was hurting or scaring it as it was making a loud squake excuse my spelling .it probably only lasted a second or two .i tried to think of a bird thats black and white ,waddles like charly chaplin and prefers to dive under the water without comming up rather than fly as an escape option .it had to be a penguin . it was an escapee as thats a strange place for one penguin to be at night on our coast.chinstraps live of of a tropical coast but all the other types live wear its very cold i believe.every type also live in colanese to but realy your guess is as good as mine.take care amy love leigh . see you soon xx.

15 Feb, 2010

 

all penguins are piscovaurs excuse my spelling ie fish eaters lol xx

Hi Amy...Jane here...Ray away for a while..his Dad in hospital.Just must tell you last July about 5 adult and 6 baby ducks were found squashed at our local duck pond.Some of the residents kept a vigil and a couple of nights later a car was seen in the early hours...running more over.A totalof 15 ducks killed by a mindless youth.His reg was taken and he was caught.At the hearing he said it was only a bit of harmless fun........got a few hours "community service ". It makes my blood boil..........

18 Feb, 2010

 

why do people do this . id like to run him over slowly for a laugh bonkers with a very slow steam roller . i bet funny wouldnt be the first thing on his mind .i remember to little thugs got caught kicking a hedgehog to death.in court the hedge hog wasnt deamed big enough to be an animal.people never get what they deserve for animal crualty and theres a lot of it about im ashamed to say.take care bye for now xx.

18 Feb, 2010

 

Yes Np....there was a petition in the paper for a harsher sentence...and the youth mother complained he was being targeted unfairly.Bring on that steamroller.................x

Hi Jane , sorry to hear that Rays father is in hospital and hope that he has a speedy recovery and will soon be home , please give him our best wishes x

Why do mothers cover up for their children when they are so obviously cruel ? I would want them to know how wrong it is, how can they ever learn differently unless they are punished in some way ! I always told my children that if they did anything to get into trouble I would be the first one to punish them ... how can they think it's fun to hurt a defenseless creature , I'm with you leigh , I would like to give the same treatment back to them

18 Feb, 2010

 

Couldnt agree more Amy.

Many thanks for your good wishes...will pass on to Ray when he rings tonight.It is a stroke...long haul...and he lives alone 250 miles away. Much to sort out care wise....and wont leave his house...lived there 60 years !

18 Feb, 2010

Amy
 

That's sad news Jane , I take it that he is at home and not in a hospital , we went through this years ago when my husbands mother had a stroke ..... our thoughts are with you both .x

18 Feb, 2010

 

He is still in hospital at moment Amy...not sure what is happening...he keen to get out asap but cannot weight bear yet,Due an assessment soon for care.there is no easy answer is there? Thank you for your good wishes Amy.x

18 Feb, 2010

 

Hope things work out Jane......best wishes to you all...XX

18 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks for your good wishes Janey..x

18 Feb, 2010

Amy...Ray rang to say the hospital want to free up the bed..even though his Dad cannot yet weight bear.Ray is sorting out a care plan for him with social services and willl stay to make sure all going ok.Probably be out Monday so lots to do there.Wish he would come here but fiercely independent ! Just have to see how it all pans out.

Thanks for your care...both xx

Oh Jane , it's a nightmare isn't it , why did they ever go about closing most of the cottage hospitals ? they were there to be used for people to recover , when I think of all the money being used on senseless stupid things it makes me so angry , this week there's a huge out-cry in our local press Norwich Hosp. has had an elderly lady on a trolley in a storage cupboard , she couldn't sleep because people were constantly going in and out for supplies , what has happened to our country ?

Love to you both , I know from experience thats it's as bad for you sitting on the sidelines waiting .... Take care .. Amy x

19 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks both again for your kind concern.Ray rang to say he is exhausted after cleanind his Dads house from top to bottom ! Bless.....told him to grab a couple of beers and put his feet up
After care for the eldery is so unpredictable nowadays....bit of a postcode lottery.This is a difficult one because he lives on the border of Berkshire and Oxfordshire.So wilst he been in hospital in Berkshire...his after care is with Oxfordshire...at the moment communication is virtually nil...though he has been "referred "....have to wait and see.Guess Ray will be on the blower most of Monday sorting it.................x

19 Feb, 2010

 

fingers crossed bonkers xx.

20 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks Np xx

20 Feb, 2010

20 Feb, 2010

Hello Jane , I've been wondering how you are , have you anybody staying with you while Ray is away , are you alright ? .. ... is Ray coping ?

Talking about birds food I made a big seed cake today then put it in the freezer to harden off and have forgotten to take it out , I had better do that now or there will be trouble in the morning when they look for it ..LOL.. ..
Snowball brings his girlfriend to breakfast every morning these days he then takes her home , he is gone for about an hour and then comes back to spend the rest of the day with Fudge , it's a regular thing now ... :o)
