Robbie

Robbie is doing so much better now, his breathing is much improved, and he does not have so much nasal discharge.

The spines on the back of his head and neck are taking their time to regrow, although the wound is well healed thankfully.

Here are a couple of pictures of Robbie this evening, one asleep and one waking up. He likes to sleep in fleece pockets but today slept on top of it!

He is such a sweet little fellah, and so tolerant of all the handling he has had to have for his treatments to be given.

He came to us as a juvenile aged approx 4-5 months on the evening of 23rd August 2018, after being trapped between two brick walls below ground level for five days. He appeared to have walked along or climbed over a garden wall and fallen into the 6inch gap behind, trapping him against a garage wall. In that time he had tried frantically to climb out, but at a depth of around 3ft below the garden level this was impossible. The frantic scratching to climb out resulted in him losing all the claws on his front feet and the tip of some of the toes.
