Ed: Trainee Mouse Catcher

Thursday, 16 June 2016

Whilst out walking the dogs on a local rural track road I heard a scream (and it wasn't me)!  I thought it was a buzzard with it's dinner so chose to not investigate.  However, after 20 minutes on our return walk I heard it again... I had to investigate!  Lo and behold.. there he was sitting crouched at the edge of the road hissing and spitting at the dogs.  I managed to pick him up which meant he wasn't feral.  In fact he had been socialised so it looked like he had been abandoned.  

Going by the colour of his eyes (blue) he was under 6 weeks old... too young to be out by himself sooooo....

"Look what I found Michael!"... and he is staying!
