Meet Spike!

He was taken into rescue in June ’06 weighing just 3oz & suffering from a variety of ailments including lung worm. Now a healthy 4lb he’s strong enough to go back into the wild or rather the bottom of our garden. He’ll have the freedom to come & go as he wants with the added advantage of fresh food & water delivered every evening.

DH has made him a special house & it’s carefully hidden under plastic covered in a mountain of leaves in a corner under a large bush sheltered by fencing.

We’re hoping that he doesn’t ‘leg it’ & that he choses to stay in his house snug in all the leaves. The bottom of our garden is quite overgrown & home to squirrels in the trees, mice & lots of birds including Tawny owls. Hopefully he’ll fit in well & make it his home.
