Here is Percy Now !!!! - Percymus Giganticus @ 5 months
Percy - where have you had your nose !!!
Percy continues to grow at an enormous rate - he is still having his milk drinks athough officially he should have weaned off them a good few weeks ago ! - trouble is he enjoys them so much. He is nearly tall enough to reach the top of his stable door.
Here is a picture of Percy enjoying a late night Christmas Eve milk drink ! Hasn't he grown !!!
Percy moves outside to a stable !! - He loves playing in the straw and enjoyed trying to eat everyones shoes at the open day today !
Percy is doing well & drinking loads of milk replacer ! Here he is on Saturday night attacking the throw on a sofa & then seeing off Miss Tabetha - who had been minding her own under the chair !
15th November - Percimus Maximus
It's Saturday night & Percimus Maximus is the commander of the yellow towel & the teddies of the north
Percy is making excellent progress. He is drinking all his milk replacer up & growing bigger every day. Today he moved out of his cat pen house into a large dog cage.
Here he is taking his evening exercise stroll around the kitchen floor this evening.
Percy's first night was always going to be the riskiest time, as it was vital that he started to take milk replacer quickly. He took a small amount of feed during Saturday evening and I fed him at 2 am, 4 am & at 6am.
He got the hang of the suckling technique at the 2 am feed & guzzled about half the feed bottle !
He is now feeding at regular intervals & I have no reason to think that he won't make it through the critical next few weeks - which is more than I can say for me ! On top of everything else I have a marathon to run at the end of November !
Just look at his expression ! He means business !!
