One rescued hedgehog = two rescued kittens......!
In my previous post I told of taking to a rescue centre a baby hedgehog we rescued, but the happy story does not end there. Whilst at Munlochy Animal Aid I mentioned to Iona who runs the sanctury that in August we had had to say goodbye for the last time to Amber, our gorgeous 19 year old cat. Isla asked if we were looking for another cat and I said we would wait for the right cats at the right time.....and she produced these two beautiful female kittens, about 10 weeks old and needing a good...

Our first hedgehog rescue of 2015

Our first hedgehog rescue of 2015
We found this little hedgehog, our first Autumn Juvenile of the year, on our drive at The Dulaig last night. It looks in good condition but weighing only 400 grams it is highly unlikely to be able to put on enough weight to enable it to reach 750 grams before it hibernates for winter here in the Scottish Highlands.  We kept it indoors overnight, fed it on catfood which it loved, and today took it for overwintering to Munlochy Animal Rescue about 60 miles away.  We are lucky t...

Our visit to Ballindalloch Distillery
We had a lovely visit recently to Ballindalloch Distillery, just 16 miles from The Dulaig.

The craftsmanship is obvious both in the distilling and in the restoration of the buildings - just look at this lovely old lock on the restored spirit safe.  Although it will be some years before the whisky will be ready to drink you can book an appointment a...

A sad farewell to our gorgeous cat, Amber

A sad farewell to our gorgeous cat, Amber
It was  a very sad day for us today as we had to say our final goodbye to our lovely cat Amber. He had reached the ripe old age of nineteen years, not a bad age for a cat who at just a couple of months old had been abandoned along with his brother, Claret, by his first owner.  We were lucky to have adopted them from The Cats Protection League and really enjoyed having both of them as our pets. Amber was a wonderful puss who did not even chase birds!  We will miss him very, very mu...
