So Vera's first ever hibernation is finished and she's perfectly fine *touch wood*
I woke her up gradually, she had a long soak and is currently chowing down on some lambs lettuce (I think it's safe to assume she's hungry)! We almost managed 12 weeks but woke her up a week early because the temps are fluctuating so much at the minute (so 11 weeks ) 😀 Very pleased she's back!!!

Until it warms up she's going to be in her indoor table. She's not going to be best pleased I imagine 😂

That's brilliant, 11 weeks is great for her 1st hibernation. :) she's lovely, hopefully she wont be in the table too long and we get some good weather this year. :)

Not looking forward to having molly indoors when she wakes. Last time she was in for a weekend she was literally climbing the walls. Roll on spring!!

That's great news, congratulations on a successful hibernation.
Harry's due up in five weeks; it'll be great to have him back, I miss him so much.
