Celine still trying to sleep in her basket, she is getting too big, still drinking 3 bottles a day, all is the same she is getting so much bigger now and is about 13 months old. I must weigh her she is getting heavy
Celine is growing up, she is about 12 months old now she has cut out one bottle and is now only having 3 a day. She likes to lay on the ground now instead of her bag when it is hot. She is doing really well.
Tomo is our Japanese Wwoofer she has been with us for 1 month now, she is enjoying looking after Celine who is doing extremely well, she has four bottles a day and loves to go exploring outside and has, at times stayed out all night, but by morning she is back by the back door and ready to go to bed in her artificial pouch.She now weighs 6kg, so is getting quite big. I think her real mum would have been kicking her out of the pouch by now as she is getting too big. She loves eating grass and native plants.
Celine is doing very well, she was abit sick for a while from the antibiotics but for the last few weeks has been very healthy. This picture is Celine coming down to work with me in the car. She is a very independant little girl, she likes to hop around outside for about half an hour without me at dusk, just exploring. She was a little older than the last few I have had so she has already experienced living in the wild. She weighs 4.3kg so she has put on 1kg she is still having her bottle every 4 hours during the day and sleeping well at night now. I love her she is so cute.
Celine had a kidney infection when we first go her from being dehydrated for such along time and was peeing blood. She has been on anitbiotics which caused thrush and a bit of diorreogh but is now doing fine. She gets out of her pouch for a little scratch but prefers to stay inside.
Hi all have some sad news Maple died. She was doing really well so fat and healthy had taken her first steps out of the pouch and life was good. Catherine went to feed her in the night and she was dead. Unknown reason. But let me tell you she was spoilt rotten and had a wonderful time with us, Catherine did such a wonderful job and was devistated for a few days. (Celine is doing well)
Celine was saved and named by Alain. (Celine Dion of course is Canadian). She is drinking well, she woke me every 2 hours in the night for a feed. She was very dehydrated her mum had been dead about 18 hours before she was found. But so far all is well she is about 7 months old and weighs 3.45kg
Alain and Martin from Montreal Canada were driving along when they came across this site on the road. Sorry if it affends but this is what happens. It is a site we often see, when they get hit the joey usually surivies and then dies of starvation or cold if someone doesnt find them. Alain came to our shop distressed not knowing what to do. So we now have a new addition to the family. Celine
Maple is doing really well, Catherine is doing such a great job, she weighs 500gm so has put on alot of weight still having 4 hourly feeds and now sleeps for 6 hours at night. She is interested in smelling plants and fruit but cant eat she has got her front teeth and some back ones are now coming. She likes chewing on bark.
It was 11.30pm. We called the vet and she was great and said to bring her straight in. Unfortunalty she died as we put her on the table. The vet believes it was Toxoplasmoso, it is caused from feral cats. We have sent samples away and will find out of Friday what it was. She was so healthy it is hard to believe. I know she had a very happy, very spoilt and loving life even though it was too short. She will be sadly missed by all. Goodbye Luna you beautiful girl she bought so much love to everyone.
