Thai becomes a Mum
As some of you may remember at the beginning of the year we had two new otters arrive at the Sanctuary, but due to a few arguments between Thai, Starsky and Hutch, we had to look at re-homing Thai at another centre.

We did eventually find Thai a new home with the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust at Martin Mere in Lancashire.

In Lancashire she met a new male otter by the name of Ned. It was love at first sight for Thai and Ned, over the last few months both have been inseparable and also Thai has been putting on weight.

The weight increase was because Thai was going to be a mummy and just a few short weeks ago Thai gave birth to 3 kits. Thai is a natural mum, and gets very protective of her kits when the team at Martin Mere go in to check on them.
Hopefully the Sanctuary will have some more up to date news from Alex and his team in the next few weeks, as the kits get older. Here are the pictures so far...
