A quick update

Hello,

I am on my mums computer so just a quick update. On Sunday we (me and Spider and Smudge) moved into our new home.

Friday and Saturday night were spent at Tony and Carol's place about 45 mins away from my new place (Spider and Smudge spent two days in a large laundry area, they coped so well during the trip and I admire their resilence). No keys at first was the first, shall we say hurdle. Saturday Tony and I went to find a way inside and then we found hurdle number two, Fleas!!!!!!!!!!!! So I bombed the house with insecticide and the next day we cleaned up affterwards, lets just say the last tenant was not into cleaning.

Well it's Thursday now and we all still have fleas, yes even me and fleabites too. So it's mission eradicate flea day, I have Advantage for the boys ( a topical safe insecticide), spray for bedding, spray for under the house
and then it will be a comfortable time for us all.

The wildlife is prolific and each day I am observing and recording new species, on my first day I rescued a gorgeous Carpet/ Diamond hybrid snake and a Kookaburra Juvenile (just needed to recover from a knock by a car probably). The next day he was back with his family aftre a quiet night in a box.

Stay happy and safe everyone, smile lots.

Glad you are getting settled in! Sorry to hear about the fleas and hope they are cleared up soon. We have never called a snake gorgeous though. Yikes! We had to look up what a Kookaburra is and we think it looks very tasty, we mean pretty!

Good luck getting rid of the fleas and settling in! Two rescues already; that's great! :-)
