The Hedgehog Diet?


I am very curious that the owl pellet I found yesterday appears to contain, as well as tiny bones, hedgehog prickles!  I can only assume that the owl has taken advantage of some roadkill since I can’t imagine an owl picking up a prickly ball of huffing puffingness.

Since today was signing on day I had less time to do the dog walk so we had a relatively short walk with both boys being very well behaved mostly – although Pup did kiss Ginger (pony) again much to her surprise but she doesn’t seem to be frightened by him.

I got letters from the bank this morning – one of which was supposedly posted 7 days ago first class!  It still has not solved the problem and I assume I am now waiting for yet another replacement bank card … will it be the same type of either of the previous two or will I then be needing yet another PIN number?  anybody’s guess … however the situation is really the inspiration for the posts title today since after paying a bus fare to sign on I had enough to buy bread and milk.  I think generally folks realise that actually a meaty diet is better for our little prickly friends but tradition has it that they like bread an milk!

I am curious about what has happened to the staff at the Jobcentre … either Spring is bursting out all over or something has been said to help them realise they were not exactly a cheerful bunch; it was almost  a pleasant visit.  The weather on the other hand was not a pleasant change – it was raining!

One of the more notable features of today is that my Pup is pooing blue!  I have no idea what he has eaten – although I did end up with something like blue ink spots on my hand yesterday; anyway whatever it is his poo is very blue – although starting to go turquoise towards the end of the day …

On that artistic note I am going to end the blog today and go do something creative over a cup of coffee.

About nonehpets

I have an interest in how interior design and adapting a home to support living independently for longer can be complementary. The blog Life Long Design is part of an holistic plan for establishing a social enterprise which will offer the people of Tayside opportunities to explore Telecare and the wider scope of assistive technologies. Enabling individuals to make more informed and responsible choices in the care and support they need in their independent living. I am also keen to see public transport more widely adopted and sustainable rural bus services in particular supported. The Blog Travels with a Megarider shares my journey to find serenity in my life as I make that transition form employment to social entrepreneur. One of my methods in increasing serenity is to travel as many miles as I can on a fixed price bus ticket and explore my own local places of interest. Places that I used to go past and had never stopped to look at; places of peace and tranquility; places where I have had some wonderful conversations with complete strangers. I would like to share with you a response to when I described that one paragraph in an e-mail made it sound simple: "Believe me, Cathy, it does not sound simple. You are taking on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons. It is ambitious and admirable - the sort of project that can change lives, including yours." He is right it is ambitious but when did we every achieve anything by settling for the status quo and ignoring what doesn't work for people? So I would welcome your company from time to time on this journey either simply as a reader or if you are brave enough adding your own thoughts to the comments as you feel moved.
