Very happy in his new home.
I just wanted to let you know how Oscar is getting on in his new home- in a word, wonderfully! I'd realised he was a great dog but I hadn't realised just how great! He's so affectionate, he's well behaved and improving all the time- walks beautifully on the lead and is good off the lead. He's enjoying lots of long walks and is turning into a great running companion too- he's lost a lot of the extra weight already. He's great with other dogs we meet and has settled in really well with my cat . He doesn't like being left alone (he's by my side nearly all the time at the moment) but we're working on building up his independence and he's spent a couple of happy afternoons at his future holiday home (i.e. my parent's house).
Earlier this year, me and my husband adopted Holly the kitten- one that was found under a bush last Christmas Eve. We thought you'd like to hear about her progress one year on. We're delighted to report that she has come on leaps and bounds. She's settled in extremely well and seems happy and comfortable here with us. She is getting more confident every day and sits with us every evening for a cuddle. She allows Leo to pick her up for a cuddle too. She and our male cat, Rudi, have made friends now and spend their time playing indoors and in the garden together. I've taken a few snaps of her today for you, and if you could please pass them on to Fiona, who fostered her we would be very grateful. Merry Christmas!
Archie’s owners were having to move home and could not find anywhere to keep Archie. An elderly pony, not suitable for riding, and prone to attacks of laminitis, the only option was to put Archie to sleep. Again PACT to the rescue and sweet Archie is now living happily with our rescued herd.
one of our Romanian rescues
Casper came from Romania this year and is now very happy in his new home. Left in Romania it is doubtful he would still be alive.
COLIN THE CORMORANT
Colin the cormorant was found wandering along a busy country road, not a normal habitat for a water bird, well away from any large water source where he would be able to fish for food. He was looking very confused and somewhat wobbly. Colin was duly caught and brought to PACT where he is living in one of our wildlife aviaries until he has built up sufficient strength to be released in a more natural environment.
Colin is eating his way through over £2’s worth of fish each day, so not only will he be pleased when he is free again but our budget will certainly feel a lot healthier.
COLIN BEING RELEASED.
ONE VERY LUCKY PIG
Blossom piglet was found by a member of the public running around on the road in danger of being hit by a car. Although there were pig farms a few miles away, there were none close by and it was anybody’s guess where the little piggy could have come from, she had obviously travelled some distance as she was covered in scratches, very stressed and exhausted, or maybe she had fallen from a lorry.
As pig farmers do not generally take in strays, there is too much risk of disease being carried, Blossom was brought to PACT where she will spend the rest of her days in peace and safety.
