A chance to win Little Bath Tub Mouse AND feel warm and fuzzy!

Little Bath Tub Mouse
28th February 2014
As most of you know, I adopted an elderly rescue dog, Zeus, some 6 weeks ago. He'd been at the Liverpool branch of the RSPCA for nearly 2 years, having been the subject of a cruelty case, which the RSPCA won last year. He'd been overlooked many times simply because of his age, which is such
a shame. I was introduced to Zeus by Angela Chapman, a volunteer for the Oldies Club, a charity which rescues and rehomes dogs in the UK over 7 years old. (I defy anyone to look through the dogs they have for rehoming (particularly the Overlooked Oldies) and not have gone through a box of tissues by the end of it.)

Zeus looking slightly guilty but very handsome
I had originally been thinking about applying to be a foster carer for rescue dogs, but when I saw Zeus, I just knew that he and I were meant to be together. I met him on 11th January, and then he came home to live with me on 15th January. It hasn't always been easy, it's been a HUGE learning curve for me, but I just can't imagine life without the boy now :) We have walked hundreds of miles in and around Bramley and its environs, he has filled many poop bags, I have used the hoover more times in the past 6 weeks than I have in the past 6 years, and I have never felt more at peace and happier than when he's gently snoring and farting next to me on the sofa.

So I want to say a big thank you to RSPCA Liverpool branch for taking such good care of Zeus until I finally got the memo that he was meant to come and live with me. And the best way I thought of to do that is to donate a unique mouse who has captured people's hearts as much as Zeus has captured mine - Little Bath Tub Mouse!

I have set up a fundraising page on MyDonate (BT's not-for-profit fundraising site - I've been very impressed with them, I have to say), and so you can now buy a virtual raffle ticket (suggested donation per entry is £2) - the raffle will run for a week until Friday 7th March at 8pm GMT, and then I will pull a name out of a metaphorical hat, and the winner will get to give daily baths to this grubby little mouse for ever more :)

So go on, buy some virtual raffle tickets for a chance to win this wee mouse, and a chance to raise money for a very worthwhile cause indeed.

Thank you :)


  1. I remember you briefly mentioning fostering... and then, BOOM, Zeus happened.
    It's such a joy to read through your newly- forming history together, and I can't begin to tell you how many smiles you two have brought me in this relatively short space of time, just knowing that que sera!

    1. I know, Steff, it all happened so quickly, but I know it was meant to be :)

  2. You've felt at peace with him farting?! This should concern the meeces a great deal! This mouse would would be perfect in my new mouse house so I will definitely be buying a ticket or two.
