Re: Oh no...disaster!!

Hi to everyone on Facebook commenting...just for the record I did have a qualified electrician to run the wire and fit the outside plug socket for me! It was inside the shed and the bulb run off a thermostat. I always turn it off before I go anywhere but left in a rush and first time I didn’t do it,...

Re: Oh no...disaster!!

Hi guys, thank you for your kind words and continuing support. I did have a layer of cardboard on the bottom as it was a metal base and Speedy didn't like it, she wouldn't go in until I covered it. I have had so much to do I did not get round to filling it with dirt/sand. I did find broken glass pie...

Re: Oh no...disaster!!

The new space is only temporary but I think she likes it! I dug the grass back up and repotted it so it gives her somewhere to hide etc, she was busy exploring earlier today when the sun came out, but is snuggled in her cupboard now.

Oh no...disaster!!

Hi guys, Before I start just want you to know Speedy is ok, probably still in shock but have had her checked and Vet seems happy with her. I returned home from shopping to find her shed on fire! I made sure she wasn't in there and then managed to put fire out with garden hose pipe! I have never been...

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Yeah it's lovely!! I sat and watched her for ages and she spent all day in and out of it!! I think the move was the best thing for her, she seems very happy now and even takes herself outside when she's woken up! She never did that before! And all the lovely weeds are growing well and there's plenty...

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

Thank you ladies....my Nan did mention I should do this for a living!! The semi circle the cold frame is in, is our old pond filled in and my main aim is too half empty it and have the whole area for Tiny, as she is growing well and will need more room by next summer!

Re: Tiny's new outside enclosure

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

As the weathers been super, we got out there and made her a hidey hole! Dunno how long she'll fit in it tho :lol: I planted the long grass but not sure if it will do better in a pot half sunk (for her to hide under) or leave it in the ground? Will decide 2moro... Next is her cave/rockery....watch th...

Nina the thin leaves are attached to the buttercup! It's very tall so that's why I wasn't sure if it is buttercup!

I've redone these pics...

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Ty Lin, I want to give her the best possible life I can whilst she is in my care! I was thinking of a ceramic emitter at night as they don't give off light, or a greenhouse tube heater. Then I can get a guard for it and have it lower down, will research and see what's best. Its been lovely seeing he...

Thank you Nina, totally agree with the door but the shed is only temporary, will look into a brick, properly insulated house asap! We had to move so quick, I am exhausted but settling in now and all the animals are doing well. Can't wait till summer, although happy the dandelions, sowthistle & plant...

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

As I am a born worrier I have put Speedy in the meter cupboard just for night time. It has no natural light and is only a metre square, but she seems happy in there! Luckily the weather has been ok so she's been out in the enclosure during the day. I have changed to a 150w bulb and it does get nice ...

Re: New garden! Plant I.d please

The 1st pic is supposed to be with the 6th pic! I have no idea what that is!
The 2nd looks like buttercup maybe?
The 3rd has a white flower, not sure again.

Re: Speedy's Outside enclosure

Thank you for your replies, as I've had to move quickly I haven't had time to plan and the wooden 'hutch' is temporary! I am going to see about a brick house once I'm settled etc. The 'hutch' building is 1 metre square inside the sleeping area, it should warm up nicely as I am going to insulate insi...

Speedy's Outside enclosure

Hi guys, so sorry I haven't been online but life just keeps taking over! We are having to move and I have set up a 'hutch' outside for Speedy, as I have no room indoors for her! I have attached a pic. She will have a 16x8 foot fenced off total grass enclosure just for her so I think she will be happ...
