Another successful rehoming

The baboon rehoming programme has slowed a bit but it is still going on.  There was another rehoming in February this year.

Rumley has gone to live in Mitchigan with dear Bode's mum.  He had hardly arrived before he was out to lunch at the Pirate's Cove Pub and Grill.  We can see he is going to be a very happy baboon in his new home.

Rumley found his home because friends of Bode's mum (@LilyLuWho T and @NancyCakeFace) suggested she might like to have a baboon.  If you know someone who you think might like to rehome a baboon please let me know.  Of course if you would like to rehome a baboon yourself do get in touch with me either by leaving a comment on here or a DM on Twitter, saying how I can get in touch with you.  You may already have a baboon who you think needs baboon company.

Its so good to see another baboon finding his new furever home!! Rumley is the 87th baboon to be rehomed.  I am aiming to rehome at least 100!!

Stange weather

The weather at Baboon HQ has been very strange.  Well not just at Baboon HQ!   Actually there has been strange weather every where.  Very high temperatures at the Australian Open Tennis tournament in Melbourne, very low temperatures in North America.  We hope everyone is doing OK.

At Baboon HQ it has been a warm, wet, windy winter with no temperatures below 6C, so no frost  We are lucky to be on top of a hill so we have not been flooded thank goodness, our baboon hearts go out to everyone who has been.  We have wondered whether our roof would stand up to the wind but so far so good!

This is the kind of thing people are suffering from in the west of England and Wales.  We are keeping everyone in our baboon hearts.

In the north of the US they have this kind of situation:

Please everyone try to keep as safe and warm as you can.  We know that everyone has to go out sometimes but stay safe please!

Here at Baboon HQ the main problem is travelling over to the mainland for work.  The hovercraft and catamarans have done their best but sometimes they have both been cancelled and my person has had to take the car ferry.

This was the car ferry on a calm day but its not like that at the moment, it isvery rough and all the passengers are often cold and very wet from travelling to the terminal in the wind and rain.

We are sending baboon love to everyone who is affected by the weather, stay warm, dry and safe as you can and spare a thought for those who are really suffering in this freak weather.

Enjoy the winter olympics and look forward to #TeddyOlympics when we all get a chance to have a go at exciting sports ourselves.  Keep warm practicing your entries and don't forget the winter sports as well as the summer ones.
