Hiya

Tilly is settling in lovely but not taken with these dandilions!! Tried her with campanula, chick weed, geranium flowers but she picking at food! I need to get her to eat a decent meal as i have been trying to get her worming meds in, but she just trailing it round table!! Any ideas? Cucumber? Grape?

As a one off to try and get the meds down her you could try cucumber and or strawberry, I believe they are like sweets to a kid, not very nutritious but they are supposed to love them, :)

Yep.... cucumber's always a good bet. They can smell it before they see it!! Norman loves the red radicchio that you get in florette crispy salad too. If I ever offer either as a treat he actually runs over for them!!

Oh yes, Rufus loves Radicchio too, we daren't buy a bagged salad for ourselves that does not have this in, so Rufus can have a bit. :) It's a lot healthier than strawberries too. ;)
