No echidnas today

The echidna turned up at a vet's surgery, who then rang the Zoo to come and collect it. Which they did.

I have a mix of disappointment and relief. Disappointment in that I don't get to care for this little puggle, but relief because it only weighs 35g, or about 7 Maddies. Puggles that small are notoriously hard to keep alive because at that age they're not much more than a tiny bag of hairless skin with claws poking from four lumps at each corner and a snout. The puggle is getting the best possible care it can get. The zoo knows that if they can't look after it, I'll do it.

So no puggles today.
