What a Summer!
What fantastic weather Summer 2013 has given us! I cant remember a longer period of hot sunny weather than this for a good few years!
Here at Eltham Hen House summer has been a test for most pets, we must feel sorry for furies in this heat - they all have fur coats and cant take them off for a bit to cool down. All pets need a great amount of water this weather and might not eat as much as they usually do, try and give them plenty of fresh hay and greens, this way they will at least get good nutrients.
Remember although the nights are warm, foxes still roam - so make sure your pets are safe and secure at night, and that they have water in their bottles and bowls before you say goodnight!
Lets hope that the rest of the summer is a little more comfortable in temperature but just as sunny - We are all pleased its nice weather, just keep you and your pets safe in the sun! :-)
