Re: Speedy's busy day

I promise I won't do it again...unfortunately she is very fussy with eating, takes me weeks to get her to try something new! Also she won't stay out in the sun for long, keep finding her in the coldest part of garden asleep or fussing at door to come in, then she just goes under living room table! I...

Re: Pinworm

I did ask if I could buy it and put it on their food but she said it's best directed straight into the throat as deep as possible to get into the gut, she had a long plastic pipe on the end of a syringe for Speedy. She did say cleanliness is very important etc but didn't say about newspaper, should ...

Re: Growing weeds at home
