March Rehomings

I am pleased to say that four baboons have reached their new loving homes in the last two weeks.

All four left Baboon HQ on Saturday 8 March.  The first to arrive only had a short hop across the Solent to @lilliandarchie.

Hairy Harry started life in his new home by feeding the chickens.  Of course he had to prepare their food first.

Harry was allowed to use a knife to chop up the chicken's veggies, but not all baboons are safe to do this so check your baboon out before allowing the to use sharp knives.
Harry has proved to be a baboon of many talents.  He has been working in the hairdressing salon and yesterday he covered a chair.

Harry is a handsome chap as well as talented.  Of course after all that work Harry deserved a treat.


Yep well baboons and biscuits (cookies)!!

The next to arrive also travelled in England but went a bit further north to @WabbitWisdom.


Murphy also arrived after only two days travel, but he was rather tired and Wabbit let him sleep peacefully.


Wabbit is very kind to Murphy and gentle, even though Murphy was snoring.

The other two baboons were travelling to the US so they took a bit longer. 

Bernard arrived at @NancyCakeFace's house after nearly two weeks travel.


He was tired after all that travelling and took over Nancy's basket.  After that they did play though.


I think they started off by checking eachother out a bit.


Nancy let Bernard share her window, that is probably a good sign of friendship.


After exactly two weeks the final baboon arrived in Florida with @Skye613.  He joined their other adopted baboon Harry B Toes, they are cousins and you can see they are very fond of each other.  This new baboon was tired when he arrived and he hasn't revealed his name yet, but we will let you know when he does.

Thank you for reading and being interested in our baboons.  If you would like to rehome a baboon or another baboon please let me know.  All of these baboons were rehomed as a result of my last blog where people read about Rumney and thought they would like a baboon.

Hello, most of us in the northern hemisphere have had a hard winter.  We, in Europe, haven't had the extreme cold that our pals in the US and Canada have had, in fact its been strangely warm.   However, we have had storms and rain, rain, rain!  Suddenly the weather changed and we started to see the sunshine.  Little George from Baboon HQ decided to go out and investigate.

George hadn't been walking for very long when he came across these flowers.  He felt that was a good sign.

Nearby he found these lovely blue flowers.  This is good he thought, I'll carry on and see what else I can find!

The next thing George found was some snowdrops and these nice yellow flowers.  This was shaping up well, George decided Spring was here and he would go on.

George got as far as Quarr Abbey where the grounds were beautiful.  Here he found daffodils and primroses.

It is perhaps a little early for bluebells but George found some and some pinkbells as well.  There were also some white ones but his head is in front of them.  There was also a ladybird (ladybug) on the blue ones.

Well George is a baboon so when he found a tree full of apple blossom he had to climb it.

Finally on the way home he found something surprising.

Duck eggs for sale!!  George decided to investigate and climbed up to have a look.

He found duck eggs and quail eggs.  Well that's spring for you!  We hope to find lambs and calves soon but this walk was not one where you would do that.  George had a lovely Sunday morning.  Thank you for reading.  I'm sorry the flowers don't show up too well in the pictures but George want to show you that Spring will come for everyone.
