Anna and Taffy

After the sad loss of the tiny hoglet that was cat attacked on Thursday, we thought you would like to see her two siblings “Anna and Taffy”, named by two little girls who found them.

Both came to us on Wednesday morning after being found alone on a driveway at Blandford. We suspect the storm on Tues night had made mum move her babies to another nest and dropped them on the way.

They are both doing well and although “Taffy” is a problem feeder, he is nonetheless putting on weight. Both weigh less than 70g at present and eyes newly opened since they arrived here, so around 10 – 14 days old.
